Awesome, large (86m2) two bedroom apartment in Kamppi, smack in the center of Helsinki. The place is spacious, bright, and great view to the city. The apartment has minimalist interior design, it was stylishly and completely renovated in 2012. It has everything one needs for a comfortable living. Since I live abroad at the moment, I am renting the apartment with everything in it, WiFi Internet, sound system, large screen TV. The apartment has one small bedroom and one large bedroom separated from the living room by large, old style doors. There is a bathroom with shower and WC and a secondary small WC. The kitchen is large and equipped with a dishwasher, washing machine, fridge, freezer, blender, coffee machine, toaster.
Kamppi is the bus transportation hub of Helsinki, the main bus station is 5 minutes away, main railway station 10 minutes away. Lots of restaurants, bars, shops, all within a few minutes walk.
Helsinki downtown parking can be a bit challenging at times. Although you can park anywhere on the street in the neighborhood and you will always find a parking space in the end, it might be so that sometimes, especially in the late evening, it might take few minutes of driving around until you find one. During the summer vacation period, mid-June to mid-August, the situation is not as bad. Street parking during Mon-Fri 9-21 costs 2€/h.
The apartment is within 5 minutes walk from Kamppi metro station and main bus hub of Helsinki. The main railway station is two tram stops away via tram number 9.
From airport you can take the "Finnair bus"(regardless of airline you are flying) to the railway station. The Finnair bus ticket is 6.3€ and valid only for that bus ride, which takes about 30-35 minutes.
Alternatively the bus 615, that leaves you also at the main railway station. The bus trip takes about 35-40 minutes. The regular bus ticket costs about 5€ and it is valid for 1,5h for other means of transportation too.
The taxi from the airport to the flat costs around 45€ and the trip takes about 30 minutes.
In case you decide to walk, here is the map route from the railway station to the apartment:

Can't fault it!
The apartment is in a great location. Walking distance to most places. Alternatively there's plenty of public transport around i.e Kamppi station.
The rooms were spacious and neat with full access to all facilities inc kitchen & laundry.
Lucian was very punctual with his messaging and did his best to ensure we had a great stay.
Would stay again for sure.
The flat is just perfect. We had a wonderful time in Helsinki.
There could be no better place to stay. The location is great. Everything is in walking distance.
I've never been in a rental apartment with such a fully equipped kitchen.
Highly recommended!!! We loved it!!
Cet appartement est très bien situé. Idéal pour visiter la ville à pieds. L'accueil était parfait, il ne manque rien en (website hidden)ès bien pour un week end prolongé à 4 adultes à Helsinki
Spacious apartment, furnished minimalistic but tasteful. Two bedrooms - one large is next to the living room, the other a little smaller, separate. Large, bright kitchen where nice to meet all the family in the mornings and evenings. Plenty of storage for luggage. Dishwasher and washing machine - everything works without problems.
Great location - 15 minutes walk to the center, right next to the house there is a Playground, a supermarket and a couple of bars.
The communication with Lucian's friend Pekka was nice and easy.
We have just returned from a wonderful new years stay in Helsinki. Lucian's flat was gorgeous and looked even better then the pictures. The living room was huge with a big comfy sofa. The main bedroom was also a good size and nicely decorated. The spare room had a smaller sofa bed but the other couple we stayed with slept in there with no problems. The kitchen was clean and we cooked there easily, especially as essentials such as oil, herbs and spices were already there. The table pulled out so we could easily accommodate 6 for dinner when our friends came over. Really good location which made it easy to explore the city by foot. We didn't get to meet Lucian, but his friend who let us in was polite and to the point, showing us how everything worked and then leaving us to enjoy our stay. :)
It was a wonderful stay in this Appartement. Good situated and very comfortable. Highly recommandable.
My family and I are very thankful for Lucian for having let us spend our Christmas in his beautiful flat. We enjoyed a lovely time in a great location! In addition, Lucian was extremely kind, flexible and understanding with all our questions and requests. We couldn't have asked for a better host, and we highly recommend him! Thank you ever so much, Lucian.
I highly recommend this apartment!
This is my first time using this service. I am a 60 year old woman who lives n an upscale California coastal community and I have high standards, it was my oldest sons idea to use this service for a week trip through Scandiavia together. We rented three places in three cities and this was the most impressive. The owner has execellent taste, his apartment/home is spacious clean & well equipped for everyday needs. The location is quiet and central to everything.
Well, "Awesome, big flat downtown Helsinki" is no exaggeration. Great flat, great kitchen, clean bathroom and toilet.
No noisy neighbors.
City Centre in walking distance.
Lucian was a very pleasant host. He answered all my questions and there were some ! His apartment was amazing, great location, well decorated and of course totally clean and tidy. I would totally recommend him as host to any Air BnB guests.
