We reserved this flat just knowing we wanted to be in the heart of Helsinki and close to the water front market area. We had never been to Finland before and rented this place without really knowing where we would be. It turned out to be a wonderful location, easy walking distance to the market, public sauna, the central train station, a nice little grocery store, a Starbucks.... what more could you ask for?! Reijo, the owner was great!! He met us there to familiarize us with the working aspects of the flat (sink, wifi, washing machine). We spent four days there and had a wonderful stay. After we left I realized I had left a down vest on a hanger by the door. Reijo was more than willing to take it to the Hilton where a friend of mine was to stay soon on business so I could get it back. Reijo was more than generous with his time for us, even after we had left the country!
I highly recommend this flat for a stay in Helsinki!
This small flat is in the most prized location in Helsinki, on the Esplanad, across the street is Chanel, 5 doors down is Louis Vuitton. The area is the hub of restaurants, shops, services, public transportation sight seeing and generally great places to enjoy the City. We ate all of our breakfasts, next door at the Cafe Esplanad (a bakery and coffee roaster).
The flat is tiny, but not lacking, ideal for 2, and would be tad tight for 3. The building is an old but newly renovated 7 story office building which houses private banks, law firms and corporate offices, this flat is the one and only one residential facility in the building. One of the perks of the building's clients is corporate style security and a spotless facility. We very much enjoyed the style and feel of the building.
Reijo, the owner, was easy to work with during the rental process, and as the trip approached he provided an solid list of suggested activities and restaurants.
We want to return to Helsinki and definitely want to return to this flat.
Great space on a great location in centre of Helsinki! Reijo is really helpfull and his hospitality is great. We had a wonderfull time.
For four persons it's a little small, the bed for two persons is only for a couple.
