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.
Sweet apartment right in the middle of Helsinki. So convenient! Johannes was a great host even leaving eye masks to help us sleep through the bright Finnish nights. Recommended!
We stayed for 2 nights in Johannes' flat and loved it! The flat is great - beautifully light and it feels really spacious despite being a studio. It's a perfect base for exploring Helsinki as it's right in the centre of the city - and just a 2 minute walk from the train station. Johannes had left us some eye masks (to block out the almost-24 hour Finnish sun!) as well as a big bowl of fruit! He was really helpful with all our travel arrangements. Very highly recommended!
We would definitely recommend Johannes as a guest!
Johannes is an easy going, quiet, and respectful guest. More importantly, he kept the room clean and tidy. Welcome back.
Ho incrociato Johannes nel suo breve soggiorno napoletano solo un pomeriggio, ma mi è stato sufficiente per coglierne la simpatia! Ospite più che consigliato!
Despite some issues in the beginning, everything went well.
