Meri's apartment was amazing! I felt entirely spoiled by the incredible location, amenities, and comfort provided. Meri was kind enough to wait up late past Midnight for me to arrive. After a quick primer on the apartment and surrounding area, she left me to settle in.
The apartment had everything I needed - not to mention a fully supplied kitchen which I made use of on more than one occasion. I am grateful for Meri's hospitality and wish her all the best!
Our first experience with Airbnb was made easy and enjoyable by Meri, she responded quickly to enquiries and was extremely helpful. When we arrived we were greeted by Jan, (Meri's boyfriend), who helped to fill us in on local facilities and did his best to make sure we would make the most of our visit to Helsinki. Meri has also provided a very helpful folder with lots of useful information about Helsinki.
Meri's apartment was bright and clean and brilliantly located for our visit; we were able to walk all over the city. Having considered buying a transport pass before we left home we found it unnecessary due to the position of the apartment. On the couple of occasions we did use the public transport system, it was punctual and efficient; the apartment is just a 5 minute walk from the bus station and a 10 minute walk from the railway station.
The bed is large and comfortable and the kitchenette, although not suitable for cooking a Cordon Bleu meal, is sufficient for minor catering. For a city centre location the noise level is very low, the most noise coming from the small dog park across the road but we did not find this a problem.
This was our first Airbnb and it was a great experience. our hostess was there to greet us and showed us her pretty apartment which was immaculate and very cheerful. She could not have been more helpful explaing how things worked. She spent alot of time showing us a map (which she gave us) and she also gave us her recommendations for restaurants and sites. ...Thai Villa was super. Everything worked and it was a very central location, and it was her personal attention that made our stay such a successful one.
Meri was a great host; she answered our questions quickly and was at the apartment to greet us at the agreed time. The apartment is in a fantastic location, just a 10 min walk from the rail station, with shops (both big and small), restaurants, and cafes all around. You'll be at the center of it all. The apartment itself fit the description well. To make it even more comfortable for guests, I'd suggest adding curtains in front of the blinds (the blinds didn't keep the sun out completely, so we woke up when the sun came up, around 4:30 a.m. -- did fall back asleep, though), fans (the apartment was quite hot -- but then again, the weather was unusually warm, around 80 degrees), and two sets of keys (she provides one but another one would help a lot). Otherwise, the place is great. Another reviewer had mentioned Meri's extensive tea collection that she makes available for her guest. As a tea lover, I really enjoyed this perk. The bed was very comfortable and wifi fast and reliable. The place is also very quiet despite the fact that it's right downtown (the double windows and the 7th floor location keep the street noise away -- no noises whatsoever from the neighbors either).
Overall, we had a pleasant experience at Meri's place. Kiitos!
Staying at Meri's place was my first time using airbnb and I am glad I tried it! Meri is a fantastic host and I highly recommend her place as a great base in Helsinki. Her place is located right in the city center within easy walking distance to all the main sights. Pictures and description online matched exactly what we found in Helsinki.
When we arrived, she not only showed us the apartment and helped orient us but also took the time to give us restaurant and sauna recommendations, which were all excellent. She also had provided us with a guidebook, maps, and other key information (grocery stores, late night stores, etc).
We had a great stay in Helsinki. The apartment was exact as it is described, and very clean! We stayed there three days and we could enjoy the very central position (from the windows you can see Kamppi! The city centre is therefore within walking distance. And Meri is an absolutely wonderful host and waited for us in her flat, giving us all the instructions for a perfect stay.
Meri was a fantastic host: the place was very clean, cozy and well lit. She provided a variety of thoughtful extras including laundry detergent and even milk.
It was really a terrific experience. Thanks Meri!
Although Meri wasn't there, her boyfriend Jan was and met us at the apartment when we arrived, despite us taking perhaps longer than normal to figure out the transit system! He was extremely welcoming and helpful in directing us around the city and provided us with maps and advice for our stay. He was easy to keep in contact with even though neither my friend nor I had a phone. We would definitely recommend this apartment for anyone looking to stay in Helsinki and would prefer a whole flat with kitchen, basic foods, and close to a grocery store.
Home away from home is the best way to describe Meri's place. It was the perfect location close to everything. We walked to most places. We always felt very safe at this penthouse. We would definitely stay here again!
Cozy, clean and nice appartment. Location is perfect! Meri was very freindly, gave some useful tips
Very nice couple. We were very happy with them. They are communicative and cheerful. We recommend them!!
Pareja muy simpatica. Estuvimos muy a gusto con ellos. Son comunicativos y alegres. Los recomendamos!!

Meri et Yann sont très agréables et sympathiques.
