About this listing
Want to stay in one of the best locations in central Helsinki? This is a bright and distinctive 1 bedroom apartment in Punavuori, a trendy district offering many small shops, cafes and restaurants.
My apartment has everything you need when staying in Helsinki.
Bedroom with a double bed (w 140cm), well equipped kitchen and bright bathroom with a shower and a cozy bath tub.
Shampoo, conditioner, shower gel and the detergents for the dishwasher and the laundry machine are complimentary.
The apartment was fully renovated in 2012, excluding the bathroom which was renovated in 2015.
There are many good cafes, restaurants, shops and other services close by. Check out Design District Helsinki! Have some drinks by the sea! Go for a picnic! Happy to give you tips what to do and where to go!
Tram line 3 and bus lines 14, 17 and 18 have a stop called Viiskulma right around the corner.
If you arrive to the Central Railway Station the easiest way to get to my place is taking tram line 3 towards Olympiaterminaali. The single ride tickets can be bought from a ticket machine or from the driver and they cost about 3 euros. You may want to buy a 1-7 day ticket which allows you to travel as much as you want with the trams, buses and metro. Just look for a kiosk called R-Kioski to buy your day ticket!
Parking in central Helsinki isn't free. On my street it costs 2 euros per hour during the weekdays from 9am to 9pm. During the weekends and in the night time it's free.
Other Things to Note
Tap water is drinkable. Remember to close the water tap for dishwasher and washing machine when you are not using them.
I have updated some of my furniture and going to take new pics soon!
I cannot say enough positive things in this review about Harri and his apartment. Harri's apartment is the perfect location in Helsinki. The neighborhood is fantastic, but it is also an easy walk to all the sights in the city. If you prefer public transportation, the apartment is conveniently located right next to a bus/tram stop. The apartment is spacious, clean, and beautifully decorated. The pictures on the listing are accurate; the apartment is perhaps even bigger than the pictures can show. There is a lovely porch, and the apartment gets fantastic light.
Harri is also a thoughtful and kind airbnb host. His recommendations for things to do in the city were very helpful. He made us feel at home with a delightful welcome note. From the very beginning, he was easy to communicate with, and he went above and beyond in his role as host.
I would 100 percent recommend Harri's apartment to anyone looking for a place to stay in Helsinki. I would stay there again in a heartbeat!
We stayed hat Harri's aparment for one week, and we greatly enjoyed it! It was cozy, big, and most important, clean and tidied. On the top, nearly all major sightseeing spots were reachable just by a quick walk.
Although we didn't have the chance to meet Harri, he looked after us very well from the start to the end of our stay. He responded very quickly to messages, always in a helpful and friendly manner. My partner and I felt that he would try to help us with anything. The place is absolutely beautiful - even better than the pictures. Lovely atmosphere and incredibly clean and tidy - everything was easy to find. The bed is very comfortable and the shower is lovely. It is a peaceful and quiet neighbourhood, felt very safe there. Really loved the spacious balcony to drink coffee on and chill out. Harri recommended some places in Helsinki to visit and eat. We went to a few of these and really enjoyed our time in the city. Would definitely stay again!
Harri has been helpful and friendly from booking to check-in. The apartment is fantastic and spacious (even for 3 people) and matches the photos on AirBnb exactly. It's a great location with only a short walk into the city centre or the sea front, we would definitely like to stay again!
호스트 해리는 정말 친철하고 영어로 잘 안내해 주었습니다. 문의 사항에 대한 답변도 매우 빨랐구요. 숙소 위치는 3번 트램 정거장에서 매우 가까워서 이동이 매우 편리하였고 디자인 디스트릭트와, 영화 카모메식당 촬영했던 식당은 도보로 방문할 수 있는 거리입니다. 숙소는 매우 깨끗하고 모던하여 정말 만족스러웠습니다. 세제류, 양념류 및 세면용품들까지 필수용품들이 모두 제공되어 더욱 편리하게 지낼 수 있었습니다.
this was such a wonderful experience. harri was so warm and welcoming - he made us feel right at home. the flat was incredibly beautiful. it is exactly where i have dreamed of living in helsinki - the neighborhood is really safe and perfect :) and the balcony! oh my. big, summery, bright and lovely. if anyone is coming to helsinki and doesn't try to fit in a stay here they are missing out. thank you harri! we loved every minute of it.
