A spacious light cozy apartment in the center of Helsinki with a separated bedroom and a lounge room/kitchen will be perfect for couples, group of friends, a family or a business people to visit and discover Helsinki.

Perfect to 1-2 travellers,but possible to accomodate up to 4 people.

The space

The apartment is located in Kallio district, right next to Sörnainen metro station which takes you to the heart of Helsinki in short 5 minutes. The place is accessible by metro, bus and trams all day and night. ATTENTION: Kallio is an area with many bars and restaurants, it might get a little noisy during the weekend. However I have never experienced loud noise disturbing from sleeping.

Guest access

PLEASE NOTE: Airbnb is about subrenting your apartment when you are away, which is exactly what I am doing, it is neither a hotel nor a hostel and I am not making money by it, you are technically just paying my daily rent. When booking keep in mind that you get an accomodation, that is much cheaper then a hostel (if you are 2 people or more) which in the end is much more convinitent, private and pleasant than a dorm in the hostel.

Interaction with guests

I will make sure that your stay is easy, comfortable and relaxing. Shall you need any suggestions or tips on what to do in Helsinki, as well as maps and printed information - it is a pleasure for me to help you out.

I usually meet my guests in person and check them in and show around, but sometimes you will have to perform self check in picking up the key from the Newspaper Kiosk in the metro station or the airport (depending on how you arrive in Helsinki).

Other things to note

There are plenty bars and restaurants in a 1 minute walk distance, also many grocery stores such as LIDL, and the shop that is open 24/7.

Marie is an excellent host who had truly thought of everything she could to provide a great stay. Her communications were great and the guide she left was very comprehensive. The flat has excellent transport links and a handy supermarket over the road as well as lots of smaller shops. Its quiet and very clean. The block is very quiet, I don't think we saw or heard neighbours at all in days. My only negatives were around the sleeping arrangements for the living room. The description details a sofabed but actually only a large sofa is provided. There are no curtains (only thin blinds) so its too bright to sleep well and there is no door on the living room so there is no privacy. This flat would be absolutely ideal for a couple for for friends sharing sleeping arrangements were a real let down.

Response from Marie:
Thank you for your review and kind words, however I would like to comment on a negative comments the following: 1. Airbnb does not let me put anything but "sofabed" when describing the living room. I guess it is being lost in translation. I am sorry your expectations were not met. 2.Usually when guests prefer to sleep in different rooms they are supposed to let the host know in advance so linen and beds can be set up accordingly and all the information can be provided. 3. If you pay attention to the pictures in the description of my listing, you can clearly see that living room is combined with the kitchen and has no door, neither it has curtains. I am sorry you have not paid full attention to the description when you were booking the apartment. Bedroom however is with the door and had thick blinds that allows you to sleep during bright nights in Finland. Again, you did not mention you prefer to have separate sleeping places and your inquiry clearly said 2 people. 4. About the key: in my last message to you I have clearly stated the place where to pick up the keys from. I am sorry you haven't read my message attentively. 5. A tip for the next time renting through AIRBNB - message the host immideately if there is something you do not like - there is always something to be done about your disappointments rather than ignoring messages and then just put your disappointments in comments and public reviews. With kind regards, Marie

Marie give more the minimum and she is a nice host. You get more information then at info senter and everything what she said was like that. Nice appartment over all, I felt that the bathroom was a little bit older standard then the rest. I enjoyed my stay there and i will go back if in Helsinki next time.

Marie was amazing host! She was very easy to communicate with and flexible with the check in and check out times. The apartment is spacious and cute and very quiet. She had compiled a nice file with information about Helsinki with tips, maps, and tourist brochures. Shen even has an extra cell phone that visitors can use if they need a Finnish phone number. The location of the apartment is great with all the buses, trams and a metro leaving just outside of the door. Thank you Marie for being such a great host, see you again!:)

The place was really spacious and tidy, and had all the facilities you could hope for. Checking in was flexible and easy, Marie was waiting for me at the apartment when I got there and she answered my messages quickly. She was very nice and helpful person, ready to share her information about the city. It was quiet and peaceful at night (on Thursday). Nothing whatsoever to complain about, I would be happy to stay there again.

Marie was very nice, it was easy to communicate and find solutions for everything. Sleeping arrangements were no problem even with three people. The location is great, Kallio district is a really cool part of the city with many bars and nice cafes. We had a great stay and it was a good place to start exploring the city in all directions.

Hi there!

I am in love with travelling and I believe there is no better way to explore a new city than mingling with locals and staying in someone's apartment rather than in a hotel. Airbnb is a perfect way to feel like a local while your trip abroad.

About me: friendly, enthusiastic, energetic and respectful person.
My hobbies: photography, acrobatics, wealth-being and DIY.

If I happen to be your guest - I am a perfect one: friendly, neat, punctual and easy to communicate with.
If you happen to be my guest - as a host I will do my best to make you trip easy, convenient and cozy!
