The neighbourhood

The apartment is located in very peaceful area called Ruskeasuo right next to Helsinki Central Park. Central park is a huge forest containing the best routes for jogging, nature and outdoors activities. All buildings on the area are built on 40's and 50's and respect the architecture of that time. The area offers basic services: a supermarket and ATM 300 m away and some restaurants nearby. It's only 15-20 min from the centre with a non-stop public transportation. Major sport venues (Olympic stadium, Sonera stadium, Helsinki ice hall) and Messukeskus (Exhibition & Convention Centre) are located within walking distance. The open-air museum of Seurasaari is only 2,6 km away.

Getting around

The apartment is located only 20 min from the centre with the tram and bus stop 200 m away. You can walk to many near-by places and attractions. Bus connection to airport. We also have bicycles, please ask more about those!

Jarkko made us really feeling welcome when he informed us we could have a Christmas dinner with family too at his place, it was very spacious! Also the kitchen had all amenities for cooking our dinner, including an oven. The place had 2 separate bedrooms and a common sauna, which you can reserve for a group! I really can recommend this place, it's a bit outside the centre, but in 10 minutes you arrive downtown by very regular busses and trams.

Beautiful and spacious apartment with a great vibe, lots of sunlight and a very comfortable bed. Jarkko was very accommodating as a host providing guidebooks for the city. Loved the stay and would definitely stay here again.

This was a lovely apartment in a very quiet, very friendly residential neighbourhood. We are a family of 4 and it suited us very well. The apartment was very clean, bright and well equipped. Though our host was away, he had arranged for a neighbour to meet us. The neighbour was very helpful and very nice. Helsinki is a very walkable city with a great transit system. The trams and buses run very frequently to get into the city centre. We walked into the city several times as well without any trouble. We definitely recommend this apartment.

We stayed at Jarkko's place for ten days. Jarkko picked us up from the train station and took plenty of time to show us around. The appartment is situated in a friendly neighbourhood. All the main sights of Helsinki, like the city center, Messukeskus, the Olympic stadium and the open air Museum Seurasaari, are within 10-15 minutes by bicycle, which were available to us by Jarkko. The central parc, which is more like a forest starts right behind the appartment. Nice area to go walking, running or biking! The appartment has all the amenities you need for three persons, it's very, very clean and there is a newly restorated sauna in the basement, which is available to you. We had a great stay and would definitely come again. Hope you will enjoy your stay as much as we did! Thanks Jarkko and Anni, you are great hosts!!!

Es war einfach perfekt! Die Wohnung ist sehr stylisch eingerichtet, sauber und für 5 Personen war auch genug Platz. Dank guter Bus- und Tramanbindung ist man innerhalb von 25-30 Minuten in der Innenstadt. Wenn wir wiedermal nach Helsinki fahren würde ich sofort bei Jarkko anfragen. Er war immer sehr hilfsbereit, nett und unkompliziert - das ist einfach Gold wert! Vielen Dank!
