Recently renovated small top floor studio in a great location! Alppila is a trendy but quiet area between hip Kallio and Pasila where all trains, incl the airport train stop. Good public transport & close to Kallio, Töölönlahti, Vallila & city centre

The space
The apartment is located on the top floor of an art nouveau building from 1927. The windows are facing the court yard, so it's very quiet and peaceful with views over the roofs of neighbouring houses.
The apartment is furnished in a simple, minimalistic way and it features tableware by Finnish brands Iittala, Hackmann and Fiskars. The kitchen has basic facilities for cooking and making coffee, as well as a washing machine.
Although the apartment is small (22 m2), the high ceiling and white wooden floor create a light and spacious feel. Please note that there's no elevator in the building. Typical to apartments of this period, the bathroom is tiny but does the job!
The apartment is perfect for one or two people. The bed is 140cm wide.
Please note that this is studio apartment in which the kitchen, including the fridge, is all in one space. So if you are a very light sleeper, you might want to take earplugs along as inevitably the fridge makes some sound. It doesn't bother me but could possible disturb extremely light sleepers.

Where you’ll be

Helsinki, Finland

The apartment is conveniently located in Alppila, a trendy, but not too busy neighbourhood which is just 25-30 min walk from the Central Railway Station and about 10-15 mins walk from Kallio, where you'll find lots of bars, cafes and restaurants. The fantastic amusement park Linnanmäki is 5 mins walk from the apartment and with its free entrance, it's a great activity for everyone in the summer time! The apartment is located in the quiet end of Porvoonkatu and very close to Pasila station, where all national trains, including the airport train stop.
Alppila is a safe and cozy neighbourhood with lots of parks nearby. The supermarkets are 5 mins walk away and I will provide you recommendations of nearby restaurants, cafes and bars. For example Ääniwalli, one of the most exciting concert venue at the moment, is within walking distance from the apartment.

I work in the cultural sector and love traveling, design, art and architecture. I'm renting my second home in Helsinki when I'm not there myself. As a host I'm easy going and flexible - hoping you'll enjoy my apartment and Alppila as much as I do and that you'll have a wonderful time in Helsinki.
