Interaction with guests

I can be in contact with you through airbnb messages in case I am traveling far and you need to ask something.
But I have written everything down pretty excessively here in the notes already: traveling around, tips, how to use everything etc.
Thank you

Other things to note

Use the shower downstairs, but THURSDAY - SATURDAY from 5pm- 10pm there are people in the sauna, so do not use the shower then. Feel free to use it anytime before or after.

How to find the shower (and sauna): leave the apartment, take the door on the left downstairs, then turn left again, first door on the left is the shower.

A bit out from Helsinki centre, but close to the conference centre. Fairly basic with a communal shower but great value for money and the Tia is very helpful.

The apartment is exactly as advertised, in an old but well-maintained wooden apartment building in an idyllic, leafy, quiet part of Helsinki known from its historical 2/3-story wooden buildings, outside the core downtown, but still within the old city limits - a park-like hilly area (where one of the campuses of the University of Helsinki is located) is just next to the house, and a community garden area is also close-by. The apartment is compact but with efficient use of space; the bathroom could be a bit tight for a really big/tall person. With a bicycle (a main path is just behind the house), I was able to reach the Kallio area with pubs and restaurants in 10-15 minutes, and the heart of downtown in 25-30 minutes - if you want to cycle round the Old City Bay (Vanhankaupunginlahti), as I did one early evening, the apartment is well positioned - as I'm originally from Helsinki, I was able to easily find my old bicycle routes using the apartment as a base. Tia's place is ideal (and reasonably priced) if you do not need to be in the very city center, though you can get there within a reasonable time if you need to, and if you enjoy being close to city park areas and nature - I can say this from my own experience in the summer, but I believe this would apply in the winter as well (though taking into account the seasonal limitations on moving around). As to Check-in and Check-out arrangements and communications, these went very smoothly with Tia.
