What Past Guests Are Saying
Great apartment right in the centre of Helsinki . Small, but it has everything you need. A warm retreat from the cold outside. Reijo was the perfect host waiting for ous in the cold of a Finnish spring eveningl and making sure we had everything we needed. He dropped by the next day to warn us that daylight savings was about to start.
I've recommended this place to friends already.
Wir waren vom 31.12.12-04.01.13 in Helsinki und hatten das große Glück, kurzfristig dieses appartement buchen zu können. Es ist zentral in der City, hat eine wunderbar ausstattung und der Vermieter ist super nett. Es ist auf jeden Fall weiter zu empfehlen. Wir erlebten die schönste Silvesterparty unseres bisherigen Lebens und kommen auf jeden Fall wieder. Helsinki ist wunderschön. Vielen Dank für alles!!!
Cosy, clean and central!
My husband and myself rented the apartment for 4 nights. We were greeted by Tiia's father, Reijo, who also gave us some tips about where to shop etc. and even gave us a quick tour of the local area. We really appreciated the personal touches in the flat and the fact that it was very clean. It was in the perfect location, walking distance to many of the attractions but also very quiet. Would certainly book it again if ever in Helsinki!
from Italy, viaggio di Natale con la famiglia
Preso il viaggio al volo, passata la settimana prima di Natale ad Helsinki, trovata parecchia neve e -15 gradi, ma passati dei bei giorni. Consiglio di visitare la città in primavera, cos' da poter vederla completamente (molti musei e zone della città erano chiusi). Buon appartamento, propio in centro e vicino alla stazione (dei treni, autobus e metro) e al porto, di fronte al viale alberato. Il resto degli appartamenti della casa sono uffici, quindi la sera non ci sono rumori o schiamazzi. Appartamento piccolo ma pulito e confortevole, 1 letto matrimoniale e 1 divano letto. Il marito ti Tiia, il sig. Rejo è cordialissimo, ci ha accompagnato a fare la spesa,e l'ultimo giorno anche, fino alla stazione indicandoci il bus x l'aereoporto. Lo consiglio...ciao

Excellent small apartment in central location
We loved staying in this apartment, which was perfect for the two of us. It's right in the centre of Helsinki, only a few hundred metres walk from the central station and within walking distance of many of the attractions. The apartment is bright, airy and comfortable, has all the required amenities and is perfect for a couple. Although centrally located, it was quiet at night. There were also two bicycles available for our use - and Helsinki is a very bike-friendly city. The cafe next door was great for breakfast, and the lively harbourside market was only a short walk away. Tiia's father Reijo was very helpful; he met us outside the apartment on our arrival, and walked with us to the railway station on our departure.

Everything Promised and More!
My stay of two months (1 July-31 august) in this apartment was delightful from start to finish. I hope to stay there again.
The location near the harbor, best parks, national cathedral & other historic sites, museums, university, shopping (including Stockmann's vast bookstore and the open-air market at the harbor), many good restaurants, and central train, metro, and ferry stations-- cannot be beat. I walked from one end of Helsinki to another and never found another place that I'd rather be, with the possible exception of one of the historic mansions that now serve as embassies. :)
The apartment is extremely quite, comfortable, and has all the amenities that one might need for a stay of any length. Tia and Peter even supply essentials like toilet paper, detergent, and trash bags. Tia has also compiled a folder with maps, information about current exhibits, concerts, and other events, not to mention keeps on hand a small collection of books (in Finnish, English, Russian, etc.).
If you're flying into Helsinki, take the Finnair City Bus to the Central Railway Station, for it is cheap (6 Euros), reliable, runs quite frequently (starting at 5 a.m.), and drops you off just a few blocks from the apartment.

Tiia was friendly and efficient answering questions about the apartment and getting the lease signed. Her father, Reijo, was an great host meeting my husband when he arrived in the middle of the night and later taking him on a bike tour around the city before I arrived. The rental includes two bikes which you are free to use. There was a washer, microwave, toaster, stovetop, oven, refrigerator and all the dishes and utensils that you'll need. It is clean and has good wifi. The best thing about the apartment was it's location. Within a two block area you had the best designer brands, the markets with hand made Finnish souvenirs and art plus great local Food, the ferries, a park, dozens of restaurants, the University and Senate Square, the beautiful Orthodox church, and big department stores with wonderful groceries in the basements. Perfect!
Great place to stay
You could hardly wish for a better location as a base to explore Helsinki and the apartment itself, which is very well maintained, has just about everything a couple might need during a stay. Thanks Tiia we loved it.
Better than home
What can I say? A nice decent flat with everything you need to make you feel like at home, a really central location with walking distance to many 'must go places' of the town, a kind and helpful owner (or father of the owner)who would assist you in whatever way possible...I certainly will stay in this flat again during my next visit to Helsinki!
Heart of Helsinki
Compact unit right in heart of the wonderful city of Helsinki. Met personally by owner. quiet, secure unit suits a couple on vacation or single business traveller.
A fantastic stay!
I spent 2 nights in this apartment recently and I loved the place. It is spacious and clean and has everything you might need. The location is perfect, just a few minutes' walk from both the railway station and the harbour, on a lovely esplanade.
The owner was very helpful and well-organised.
I have already recommended the apartment to friends and family.
Friendly home-like place in the centre of Helsinki
Our family very much enjoyed staying in this apartment. Convenient location, beautiful, clean and quiet place with all the amenities and lots of personality, very friendly owners. We had an excellent stay and would recommend this place to others without hesitation.
a lovely very central apartment
The apartment is very central and is in a quiet area, It is very well equipped and tastefully furnished. Tina and her father were friendly and most helpful.
Excellent location, nice owner, great place to rent, expect to rent again.
Excellent and memorable stay
First of all, I would like to thank Tiia and his wonderful father for being such great hosts which made our stay that much more enjoyable. The apartment is perfectly located right in the heart of the town with easy access to literally everything. Cannot recommend a better place to stay while visiting beautiful Helsinki!
NEW JERSEY / NEW YORK
A rather elegant and well appointed property...The location is perfect, and the space has every modern amenity for graceful living. Stay here and you will possibly describe your stay in Helsinki as sublime
Everything was just perfect.
Best location - you are entering the building from Esplanade. Windows go to the inner yard - so there is no noise from the street.
It's less then one minute walking to Stocmann tradecenter, and there is a supermarket there.
The apartment is all new, clean and cozy.
We were just two, but I'm sure it's quite comfortable for a family. Also sleeping area is separated with a wall from the rest of the room - so bed and sofa (which I slept) are separated.
So you can have some privacy.
Wifi is ok.
The owners, Tiia and her father, were very friendly and helpful.
For me it's best place for staying in Helsinki.

Very Pleasant Stay
We stayed at Tiia's apartment for two days with my girlfriend and very much enjoyed it.
Tiia was very helpful all the way, from the booking stage of it and until the very end of our stay. She responded to any questions or requests right away, provided us with plenty information about the city and gave us all the necessary hints on the apartment.
The apartment, being not a very large one, felt very comfortable and had everything we needed. The location is simply unbeatable - very central (!), right in the middle of everything, but quiet inside. Great value, all in all.
It was great to be able to use the bikes Tiia and her husband provided us with absolutely free of charge! We never had to use public transport at all and could ride all around Helsinki.
We'd definitely recommend it to all our friends.
Thank you, Tiia!
