Welcome to Bachelor's Studio! Recommended by many previous guests!
a) just 3-4 minutes by tram to the heart of the city, or 10-15min walk
b) 100 meters to Airport Bus. Easy with luggage.
c) Cool, stylish apartment with everything you need.

This 30m2 fully furnished studio is my home and I rent it while I am away. It is located in an old, 1929 built house, just 100 meters away from the Finnish National Opera. The studio is in the 4th floor and the windows are facing West to the sunny inner courtyard. There is a lift for your convenience.

The building itself has been renovated 2011. At the same time the apartment has been completely redone, including all the furniture. The apartment has an open area kitchen/livingroom and a separate bedroom/half balcony bed (mezzanine). The shower is in the bathroom and there is a separate small toilet.

The apartment is ideal for one or 2 persons, but it is possible to accomodate up to 4 people. The balcony bed (140cm wide) is for two persons. Third guest can sleep on the sofa and there is an extra IKEA -mattress for the fourth guest who prefers to sleep on the floor.

Nice and quiet. It is most often me, who has a small house party and makes a little noise.

  • The flat is great, Janne has it really well equipped and there is everything you can think of and more! The location is also great, not far from the center, yet in a walkable distance and a great transport connection to the airport or other places outside of the center. Totally recommended.

  • Just loved it!
    The apartment is really great, cozy, clean and offers all the luxury you need for a nice stay in Helsinki. Since I am tiny myself, I also didn't mind "the smallest toilet in the world", though I am not sure how a tall person will manage ;-D
    Janne was super nice and quick with his replies, everything was uncomplicated. The location is perfect, very central but still quiet and close to a really nice lake and several sightseeing highlights. I can't find anything negative to say and can really recommend this studio for your stay!
    Cheers!

  • Janne is nice and helpful, and the apartment was just what we expected: comfortable, clean and peaceful. Location is great! We enjoyed both a wide range of restaurants and morning jogging in the park near by. This was our first AirBnB -experience, and we really enjoyed it!

  • Reservierung, Buchung und Abwicklung liefen mit Janne sehr korrekt und besonders angenehm. Er antwortete auf alle Fragen zeitnah und ausführlich genug, um alles wichtige zu erfahren und es hat alles absolut reibungslos geklappt.
    Das Apartement entsprach ganz und gar der Beschreibung. Eine kleine nette Unterkunft, ideal für 2 Personen, recht zentral gelegen mit allen Facilities, die einen Aufenthalt in Helsinki angenehm machen. Geschäfte und Restaurants in der Nähe, Trambahnhaltestelle vor der Tür, Finnair-Bus-Haltestelle zum Flughafen auch gut zu Fuß erreichbar und in die Innenstadt sind es ca. 20 Minuten zu Fuß. Das Apartement ist wirklich geschmackvoll im finnischen Design eingerichtet und alles Nötige und vieles mehr ist vorhanden, in bestem Zustand und sauber. Janne geht offen und großzügig mit seinen Gästen um und bereitet so von der ersten Minute an einen angenehmen Aufenthalt.
    Wir (Mutter und 16-jährige Tochter) haben die Zeit dort sehr genossen und uns wohl gefühlt. Abgesehen davon ist Helsinki eine wundervolle und interessante Stadt, die es sich lohnt kennenzulernen. Auch eine Woche war uns nicht zu lang.
    Es war rund um perfekt für uns, alles entsprach unseren Erwartungen und sogar darüber hinaus! Janne und sein Bachelor's Studio sind nur empfehlenswert.

  • Janne's clean, quiet, cozy studio was perfect for my stay in Helsinki. It's location is convenient: near the tram station, numerous good restaurants, and a beautiful park. It is a 15-20 min walk to downtown, or a quick 5 minute tram ride. Because the apartment is a studio, I would recommend for 1 or 2 people. Janne communicated well with me, and made sure that everything was going well. I would recommend staying at his apartment without hesitation. Thank you!

  • I lived in Jannes apartment for 2 months and I enjoyed it! It is well equipped and extremely quite. Especially the bed is really good! The apartment is well located, close to a lake. It takes, however, 20 min to walk to Inner City, but you can use Tram, the Station is in front of the house. Janne was always at help and very nice. I can highly recommend him as host and bis apartment as well. Carsten
