Superb location just a few blocks away from the city center, yet in a peaceful and safe neighborhood. Early 1900's cozy apartment with high ceilings, old wooden floors, a wooden loft and an open view to the street with a bay window.
Attractions like National Museum, Parliament House, Olympic stadium, Temppeliaukio Church, Finlandia Hall, Helsinki Music Center and the Opera nearby. You’ll see a waffle bar and local grocery store from the apartment window.
The apartment is perfect for one or two persons with a double bed (150 cm wide) on the loft, and a comfortable pull-out sofa divan that can be made into a bed for 1-2 more (120 cm wide), you’ll have a dining table in front of a bay window. The windows can be opened and the table is extendable. There is an open bar kitchen.
I'll provide pillows, blankets, sheets and towels for my guests. Please note that the ladder to the loft is very steep going straight up to the bed, so let me know when booking if you would prefer that I make the bed on the sofa instead.
The living room has a 40" HD Flat Screen TV, a two speaker home theater system with radio and a DVD player. Wi-fi has been available for my guests since August 1st, 2016. Since it is a wireless modem you can actually also take it with you to town.
The kitchen is equipped with a fridge/freezer (camouflaged as a cabinet under the loft), a microwave, a coffee/teamaker (Dolce Gusto pods), a French press, a toaster, a dough roller machine, a 2-plate stove/oven, pots, pans, plates, glasses and utensils. You’ll find a basket for your picnics on the loft.
There is a small newly renovated bathroom/toilet with shower and a heated towel rail. Please note that the bathroom is small and you’ll be showering in the middle of it. A shower curtain protects the towel rail and toilet paper from getting wet. There will be toilet paper, shower gel and shampoo for you to use.

One of my hobbies is learning new languages and we can also in addition to English use one of the following when communicating:
Svenska: Mitt modersmål är svenska, så jag pratar gärna svenska även med andra som försöker lära sig språket.
Suomea: Suomi ja Pohjois-Karjalan murre... - olen asunut 6v Joensuussa.
Deutsch: Ich habe 2,5 Jahre in Süd-Deutschland gewohnt und gearbeitet (bei Firma Hohenzollern) und wir können gern Deutsch verwenden.
Español: Estudio español hace unos años y puedo tratar de hablar un pocito contigo. Mi pareja, que habla castellano mejor, también nos puede ayudar. (En la foto tomo churros con choco en Madrid.)
