My place is located in a peaceful townhouse neighborhood in Helsinki called Alppikylä which means Alp village in Finnish. Well equipped apartment, ideal for layovers and travelers on a budget. Located in suburban Helsinki, it has some distance from the city center which allows you to enjoy the closeness to Finnish nature but also get downtown fast enough.
The Alppikylä neighborhood is very new residential area and still has some construction going on. Consists mainly of residential housing.
It's 500m to the bus stop from where you get downtown in about half an hour and to the closest markets in 5min.
