About this listing

The space

This spacious 42m2 flat in old 1902 built house has a kitchen and one room that is a combined bedroom-livingroom
The apartment is ideal for one or two people, but a small extra bed can be requested. The apartment is clean and has been recently renovated. It is furnished with an eclectic collection of Scandinavian design. It has very tall ceilings and it is very sunny. It can be made dark by getting the blinds down.
The apartment is located in Kamppi, Hietalahti. At a walking distance of 10 min from the city center. and about 15 min walk from the Central Railway Station. Tram lines 6 and 9 are at 1 min distance walk. It is also very close to the Helsinki-Tallinn harbor, if you fancy a trip there.
On the same street there is a popular summer flea market and the organic food market which opens all year round. In front of the building there is a traditional Finnish restaurant and a little cafe. Also there's a small store, but only a couple blocks away you will find large supermarket and the liquor store.
The next facilities are included: the house is equiped with wi-fi and you can also use my laptop. Television, DVD player, CD player, Ironing machine and board, washing machine.
In the kitchen you will find a dish washer, a toaster, a blender, a whipper, a coffee machine. And of course all you need for cooking and lots and lots of Moomin stuff. There isn't elevator in the building and the apartment is on the 3rd floor. Help will be provided if needed with the luggage. You will find freshly ironed sheets and clean towels.
If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us.

Smoking is not allowed in the apartment, not even from the window. THe house has silence between 10pm and 7am. If you are in the party mood you have to continue in the disco or pub after 10pm. After-partys are not allowed. I have noticed that some small items have been stolen from the apartment recently. Please respect my house and my belongings. You are allowed to use my things during your stay but taking f.ex. moomin stuff as souvenirs with you doesn't make me happy.

Mika was a terrific host. Answered all our questions in advance of our arrival, provided easy directions to his place and was out on the street awaiting our arrival. He gave through instructions on how the apartment's equipment operated, gave several suggestions on where to find things in Helsinki. We had one minor difficulty with the blinds and he was over to do the repair in quick order, very obliging and helpful host! Future guests can rest assured that they will be looked after and provided a comfortable place to explore the city. Mika's apartment is about an easy 10-15 minute walk to the old town and is close to a corner store with a more significant grocery store 5 minute walk away. The kitchen has most of the equipment a traveler could need to prepare simple meals.

Very nice flat in the centre of Helsinki. Mika was so helpful and here to answer questions! A lot of Finnish touches (many items to look at everywhere in the flat) and a great way to make customers feel like home! Thank you so much, would absolutely come back. Kiitos.

We loved our stay here. Mika's apartment is great, very funky and comfortable. Although we didn't meet Mika, communication was good and his friend was very helpful. Good location to downtown and easy to get around. Highly recommend staying here!

Awesome host. Very very helpful. Stayed up till quite late to greet us as we had a midnight flight, left us some snacks and the apartment was great. Location of the apartment is 10 or so minutes walk from the city centre and conveniently located between tram stops. Very homey feel to the place. Heavily recommended if you want a place to stay in Helsinki.

A perfect stay in the middle of Helsinki. The flat is perfect for two persons. It was very clean and comfortable. There are shops, nice restaurants and the tram station really close to the flat. Mika was such a nice host. I found the flat after his description very easily. He showed me other different nice places to visit on the map and had an answer to all my questions.

Mika really went above and beyond during our stay in Helsinki! He organised so we could check-in at 1am after our long flight! He had left a lovely breakfast for us too which was greatly appreciated. And the apartment is gorgeous, with lots of Finnish touches. He was always available to answer our questions and made our stay in Helsinki very hassle free! The location was very central, we could walk to most sites or jump on a tram for just a few stops. Thank you for being such a flexible and welcoming host Mika!
