A big, colorful apartment in the hip Hakaniemi/Kallio district, filled with vintage and Nordic design furniture. Great views over the city. The location won't get better than this, close to everything you want to see and do in Helsinki!

Apartment is good for up to 8 people, but it isn't unusual to host only two guests either. HBO, Netflix, Viaplay available.

Three double beds, two singles and a baby crib available.

The space

A bright, very spacious and exciting apartment in the heart of Hakaniemi/Kallio district, overlooking the city and lively Hakaniemi market square. Very easy to access from all corners of the city.

The apartment has:
- Master bedroom: a double bed (width 160 cm)
- Bedroom 2: a double bed (width 140 cm)
- Lounge (may be separated with a curtain from the living room): a double bed (width 140 cm)
- there is a possibility to add another 80 cm wide single bed and a 80 cm floor futon, if needed.
- a Brio baby crib and Stokke TripTrap highchair available.

The apartment is from the 1930's with old wooden floors, and the interior has a touch of the 70's with Nordic design, vintage and kitschy stuff from our travels.

The old labour district Kallio is really the place to be and stay in Helsinki, a typical area going through gentrification, but still a bit rough around the edges. It is full of nice restaurants, bars and clubs, small boutiques and vintage stores, hosting smaller and bigger festivals. Just opposite the apartment is the old Hakaniemi Market Hall, which is the best place in Helsinki for groceries, used mainly by locals. Next to it is Hakaniemi market square, which is the closest thing to the traditional market in Helsinki. During the summer, the square also hosts a flea market on Sundays.

The British Guardian magazine has put it well: "Helsinki has shaken off a somewhat dour image in recent years to emerge as one of Europe’s most refreshing city-break destinations. It’s a breezy Baltic port with a strong tradition of design, an alternative nightlife and an edgier feel than some of its Scandinavian cousins. Nowhere is this more apparent than in the up-and-coming neighbourhood of Kallio, just north of the city centre. Once a no-go area for tourists, it’s now home to cool bars, cafés and boutiques."

Guest access

You may use pretty much everything in the apartment. The house has free laundry facilities which you may use. Off limits is only the vinyl collection, sorry.

Interaction with guests

We'll be staying out of the way and you'll have the apartment for yourself. Of course, in case we are in the city we may help you in the event of trouble. We'll also provide you with our best tips around Kallio and beyond. Helsinki is also a good base to make a day trip to Tallinn, Estonia -- we'll provide you with good recommendations there as well.

Other things to note

The cleaning fee is not included in the price, but it is possible to opt-in if the guests prefer so.

The apartment lived up to our expectations and more. It is very big, we had to walk a lot inside, even so, everything was very clean. It is indeed a unique apartment, every corner shows an original piece. We stayed with our baby and Sara & Ollie were kind to let us use their baby crib and high chair. The apartment is not so close to walk to the main tourist attractions but we enjoyed our way there. We would definitely recommend this one-of-a-kind apartment!

A really fantastic apartment in the best part of Helsinki. Sara and olli were great hosts, very accommodating despite the fact we arrived after midnight. The apartment is fantastic and the views are very special. There were lots of fascinating design items and quirky corners. Great music and books to enjoy. If we lived in Helsinki this would be our dreams location.

Sara and Ollie were GREAT about everything dealing with staying in their home. They were so helpful and communicative and their house was exactly as pictured (even better in person! :) ) and it really added to a great trip to Helsinki. The location is great, the house is cozy and felt like home and Sara and Ollie were great hosts!!!! Also, the speaker set up for playing music on a smart phone is hands down the best reason to stay with them! :) I would totally recommend! Thank you!

We were a family of four traveling with two older teenagers. Great large apartment in a wonderful location. Artsy decor with lots of light and bright colors. Very clean and well provisioned. Nice view overlooking the square. Walkable to downtown. Buses, trolleys, and metro located in the square. Lots of restaurants nearby and a great food hall across the street. Sara was fantastic-- friendly and responsive, and provided lots of recommendations for dining and sightseeing. Great base to explore Helsinki. You won't be disappointed.

We loved the apartment which has been designed every detail. It is spacious and comfortable. We liked the red tile marketplace on the other side of the street very much. Communication with Ollie & Sara went smoothless.
