The flat is stylish, renovated room in a hundred year old beautiful building. The place issituated right next to the National Theatre, 2 min from Central Railway Station, next to the large Kaisaniemi park and 2 minutes from the major shopping streets
Comfortable queen sized mattress above kitchen and sleeping sofa for two in this very small but functional flat situated in the middle of everything, right next to the National Theatre, 2 min from Central Railway Station, next to the large Kaisaniemi park and 2 minutes from the major shopping streets. Punavuori design district is 5 minutes walk to west, Kallio bar district 10 minutes walk to east.
When you stay here, everything is close.
The place suits best a single business traveller, two friends or a couple, although it is possible to accommodate two couples or even six people using two extra mattresses (provided). However, the place is small (less than 25 m2) so if you are more than a few you will have to use this place only for sleeping.
The flat is stylish, renovated small room in a hundred year old beautiful building. The flat feels larger than the square meters dictate. The ceiling is high: the bed is above the kitchen. To get to the bed, there are these huge stairs to climb (check out the pictures).
Fourth floor. Because the building is old, there is no elevator.
I have a excellent wifi and a very handy kitchen.
Be smart and honest.
Excellent little cosy apartment, smack in the middle of the centre. The central railway station is literally a 2-minute walk. Even though it's so central, it was very quiet and there was little noise.
Communication with the host was excellent, even though i couldn't meet Johannes personally his friend Kia showed me around and was very kind with answering questions.
Maybe the only downside is the staircase to the bed, which is a bit tricky. However, there's also a futon couch downstairs.
I would highly recommend this apartment to anyone travelling to Helsinki and looking for a clean apartment near to everything.
perfect location: just next to the central station but super quiet. felt at home at johannes place!
Johannes is a kind and welcoming host and the location of his cozy and well-decorated flat could not be better! There is a lovely courtyard perfect for reading and socializing, and outside the park is a short walk in one direction and Helsinki's best shopping and dining is a short walk in the other.
The apartment is located right in the center of the city - you can see the side of the Finnish National Theatre from the window and can walk to the central train station in minutes. The apartment building itself has very unique architecture and has a great historic feel. Staying in the apartment provided a unique opportunity to experience actually living in Helsinki vice staying in a hotel as a tourist. Countless restaurants and the sights of Helsinki, including the market square and Esplanadi, are within walking distance. The host is very helpful in providing useful tips and tourist suggestions on Helsinki, in addition to ensuring that the apartment is accommodating to guests. Perhaps the most memorable experience of my stay was "Restaurant Day" in Helsinki. Had the host not provided information about the event, I would have completely missed out on a great day.
The apartment is very central, just next to the rail station. There is also a nice park nearby. We were four friends who stayed for two nights and it worked out very well. I can definitely recommend Johannes's place!
Great location, nice building, secure, bed not very comfortable, could be cleaner, good tips on mirror, flexible (late departure), friendly
Really cool apartment in a central location. It's quite cozy- good for maybe a couple or a few close friends (as long as no one snores). Excellent starting point for exploring Helsinki.
