Please take a look at my feedback. Please ask if there's anything you would like to know. I'd be glad to help.
I work as culture/travel/design journalist so I would be pleased to tell everything you need to know about Helsinki, which is one of the most interesting cities in Europe right now. There's so much going on here specially during the warm season. Kallio area is the center place of the "renaissance".
I can also give you tips about Finland and the surrounds, like, there are some really charming old villages near Helsinki like Porvoo, Fiskars and Tammisaari. What a great day trip, easy to reach. You can also take a ferry (Tallink/Eckerö Line/Viking Line/Linda Line) and make a day trip to Tallinn, Estonia. Very easy, cheap and fun! Visiting Nuuksio national park is something unique. Easy to reach by local bus in one hour.
I'll leave you maps, guidebooks and some info about the city, the neighborhood and the apartment. Warmly welcome!
No smoking inside. No noise between 10 pm and 7 am. No big parties. No illegal downloading/uploading when using the internet connection. Please respect the neighbours. Please take good care of the apartment and leave the place in the same condition as it was. If something unexpected happens, please let me know asap. Thanks!
