Great hideout conveniently located near bus/metro and walking distance to most parts of Helsinki. Large windows, high ceilings, impressive interior design and a sauna, definitely one of the best airbnb stays we had. I didn't meet Risto in person but communication was kind and check-in/out uncomplicated.
The apartment decor is very chic and I had a great experience there with sauna and the loft setting. Correspondence with Risto had been great and I did enjoy my arrival logistics :)
Very Nice appartment, comfy, with good vives. Everything was organised for our arrival even if our plan was late in the evening. The flat is not in the center but very close And perfect when you like old factories.
Het appartement was precies zoals op de foto's. Een prachtige, rustige ligging. Alles ligt op wandelafstand (winkel, metro, zee, restaurantjes, speeltuinen, ...)
Er was een zeer vlotte communicatie met Risto zowel voor de vakantie als tijdens de vakantie, hij heeft veel moeite gedaan om het ons zo aangenaam mogelijk te maken. Heeft zelfs voor een babybedje gezorgd. Een zeer duidelijk huisreglement met goede tips.
Het appartement was net iets te klein voor ons. Wij waren met 4 volwassenen en 2 zeer kleine kinderen. Maar door het prachtige weer hebben we daar niet heel veel last van gehad. Zeker een aanrader.
I have used Airbnb in eight different cities and Risto's apartment takes the prize for being the one having the most character. His ornaments/decorations add a very relaxing vibe to his apartment. The fact that it's near the water and has a sauna inside made for a very enjoyable stay in Helsinki. His kitchen is tidy and it has all that you need to cook up a quality Finnish dish using local seasonal ingredients. As for Risto himself, he has a calm demeanor and was more than happy for us to check out at 6:30pm in the evening as our flight back home was at midnight. In general, Helsinki is a beautiful city where traditional cuisine goes hand-in-hand with new Nordic cuisine. I could go on and on.
