Really nice place. Perfect for one person. I will definitely plan to come back when and if I spend time in Helsinki. Easy handover of keys. Supermarket one minute walk from the flat.
Very good service, comfortable flat with all amenities, and an excellent location. Ideal base to explore Helsinki!
Very nice & convenient place in my very favorite part of Helsinki.
Nice deco and lots of goodies.
Thanks Tiina & Mauri
Tiina and Mauri's flat was completely ideal for my boyfriend and I. It was a great size for two people, nicely decorated and very comfortable. The groceries left for us to use were a welcome extra, although we spent a lot of time outside the apartment anyway. The location was also great, very handy for public transport although we walked around a lot too. It was also nice to be right next to Kallio church.
Only one night wasn't enough to stay at Tiina and Mauri' place; so cosy, clean and warm! And a lot of tips to discovering the city (restaurants, places to drink and have fun...). Tiina and Mauri know how to welcome people! I recommend highly this AirBnB couple with their friendly attitude.
This was so far the best Airbnb experience since I started sleeping via Airbnb. Communication was excellent and elaborate with all sorts of tips about where to eat, how to get there and what to do in the area. Tiina and Mauri were very nice and very flexible. The apartment is beautifully decorated and very comfortable to stay. We stayed in the apartment when we arrived from Amsterdam and after one week stay in Lapland at -35 C. The cold beer in the fridge, the quiet area and the nice places to eat made it the perfect getaway. If there is anything to complain about it would be the size of the bed, but we found out later that in many places in Finland (and later also Iceland) beds are this size. It was also in the advertisement, but I always forget what queen size is :)
This is really lovely cozy apartment! There is everything you need to feel like at home! Perfect location for everyone who likes to be not in the center center but close. City center is not far and it is not a problem to walk there). The bus stop to get to the airport is near (it was important for us). We really enjoyed Callio area, some bars there and Sandro restaurant is wonderful. Many thanks to Tiina and Mauri for all information and for useful details they gave, it is really helpful. Complimentary beer is unexpected surprise, we felt absolutely welcome! Greetings and best wishes to Tiina and Mauri! This studio apartment is highly recommended to further guests!
