This grand but quirky apartment is equipped with a sauna, a bath and a large balcony. Our guests will be staying in a large private room of the shared apartment. It's located just a 10 minute walk away from the Central train Station in a beautiful historical area in the center with lots of shopping and nightlife. The area is the official design district of Helsinki and hosts multitudes of shops and ateliers of designers and the Museum of Design.
And then there are the giraffes of course.
The apartment is very unique in it's spacious two story design with great decorative elements like the exposed ceiling beams and tile floor. The rooms are so high a tall animal (like a giraffe) could probably fit here. The bedroom is large and has a beautiful canopy bed for two. The apartment is decorated in an eclectic bohemian style, you can see there are artists living here.
Besides the room, guests can freely use the common areas: living/dining room, kitchen, bathroom and balcony.
Please note that the common areas are shared with my lovely housemates: two girls Sonja & Minna and a guy Atte. You will be living in the midst of their daily lives as well - sometimes more lively, sometimes quiet. They don't take part in hosting, but don't be afraid to chat and get to know them :)
Interaction with guests
Usually we are renting the room when we are traveling with my partner and co-host Sara, so we will not be in the apartment but you can reach us by calling or texting if there is anything you need to ask.
Other things to note
I am afraid the check-in and check-out times are pretty strict as it's very hard to re-arrange them while out of town. You can discuss with my housemates if you want to leave your luggage after your check-out, but it's up to them if it suits them.
Note that the apartment is on the top floor with no elevator, so it's a good workout with heavy luggage :)
Smoking is only allowed on the apartment balcony.
No loud noises after 10pm, especially on the balcony or the stairwell.
