About this listing
Everything you might need for a short city break. Smart and convenient studio apartment, suitable for 2-3 people. Only 15min by tram to Helsinki downtown. Close walking distance to all the cool cafes and boutiques.
It's nice and cosy studio-apartment around 30 m2. It will suit perfectly for two people. But it can also accomodate three, since there is a double bed at the loft + one sofa. I guess we should note that the bathroom is combined with shower and it is really compact (1-1.5 sq.m, please check the picture), but clean and perfectly usable. We also do have a cat, not staying with you of course, but take that in account if you are allergic to pets. However, overall the studio is just lovely. We are sure you'll enjoy your stay here!

Apartment is located close to bohemian east downtown, Kallio (10 min walk), where you can find all the hip bars, shops and other places of interest.
The name of the district is Alppila referring to the Alp mountains and it is located on a the top of the hill. So if you want to enjoy the view over the whole city, you can pop in to the amusement park (Linnanmäki) located practically on the backyard, and enjoy the ride on a Ferris Wheel or Panoraama (this one is free of charge, by the way).
The Alppipuisto park is 5 min walk away, in a little valley. During the summer its a nice place for the picnic and hanging out at the little independent music festivals, happening almost on weekendly basis. Other highlights of the neighborhood include park named after Lenin, historical wooden houses, many nice cafes and restaurants, bit less pricey compared to more central ones.
It's easy to reach city center too. The tram stop is at the front door and it takes 15 to 20 minutes by tram to reach the Central Railway Station.
No smoking inside of apartment, but you are welcome to use the common balcony at the same floor.
Otherwise I guess just live like you would live in your own apartment.
