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.

Janne is an amazing host and his apartment is presented at a very high standard. I was hosted for a 6 month period with no problems what so ever. Communication was perfect, and the apartment is highly recommended in a perfect location for all ages.
Very nice and clean small apartment centrally located with all the appliances you could need for a short stay in Helsinki. All worked well and Janne was very helpful. Nice fresh linen and towels, beautiful cutlery and classes, good bed and silence in the (website hidden), wifi and radio, dishwasher and even washing machine for the clothes. What more could you need? Thanks, we would recommend this to anyone.
Beautiful place in the center of Helsinki owned by a very friendly and reliable host :)
Thank you very much for you hospitality! I definitely recommend this place!
I met Janne only briefly when I began my stay in his studio apartment. He was very helpful in getting me settled in.
I was in Helsinki on a business trip and the small apartment perfectly suited my needs.
The apartment complex was very very quiet during my stay.
If I return to Helsinki I would certainly want to stay here again!
I sent this by reply as soon as I got your request for a review because my iPad wouldn't transfer me top this site:
Nothing is coming up when I click review. I thought Janne's apartment was ideal. It was big enough and equiped with modern appliances. The shower heated up right away. It left water on the floor but due to the nich bathroom heating aystem it dries immediately. The washing machine works well. I figured out the induction stove, microwave and refrigerator. Tje bed is big and comfortable. The sound level is fine and would probably be fime even if it were on the Mannerheimintie side of the apt house but it's on the opposite side so it's great. Thanks, Olof
Perfect place to stay in Helsinki for a few days. Clean with lots of nice extras like a good TV and sound system :) Thanks Janne (a very friendly host!)
Janne gave me a very warm and friendly welcome, he is an easy-going and very polite guy. His apartment is cute, cozy and clean, perfectly fits for a short-trip to Helsiniki (as I had) and close to the center BUT also to the park and the city beach. I also loved the cozy bed construction. Thanks, Janne!
I live in Helsinki and rent my apartment while away.
I travel quite a lot for business and pleasure. A weekend at home is a speciality. My favorite hobby is snowboarding and I try to snowboard as many days as possible during the skiing season. During the summer I tend to get away from the city to enjoy the Finnish nature in the unique and lovely archipelago in Southern Finland.
