Extremely cozy and quiet, stylishly furnished 40,5 m²/436 ft² apartment right in the heart of Helsinki!
The apartment is located in charming Kruununhaka, one of the oldest districts in Helsinki. The area hosts some lovely small boutiques, restaurants and cozy cafeterias, several grocery stores, parks and children's playgrounds. Some of the main tourist attractions are within a few minutes walk, as is the main shopping area and the main Railway Station with all it's transportation connections. The University of Helsinki is located practically next door. The busy areas in central Helsinki are within a few tram stops, as is the bohemian Kallio district with it's bars, cafe's, flea markets and small designer boutiques. Despite the central location, Kruununhaka is a very quiet district with little traffic. The apartment itself is on a pedestrian street making it even more quiet. For a special experience, try sleeping with windows open and be ready to be disturbed by only blackbirds' singing (which can be surprisingly loud at times)!
The apartment features a livingroom, a small bedroom, a modern kitchenette and a bathroom. It is furnished with respect to the art nouveau style of the building but with a touch of modern simplicity, and it comes fully equipped for long, comfortable stays.

Other things to note
Please note that this is our home, not a full time airb'n'b listing.
Smoking is not allowed inside the building or on the balconies. Please go out to the courtyard or front door for a cigarette.
The building observes silence between 10pm and 8am, please refrain from excess noise between these hours.
You are welcome to read the books in my library, but please treat them with care, they are very important to me.
You are welcome to play the piano, but please note that it is very old (and at the moment not perfectly tuned), so treat it with respect.
In addition to the books and the piano, the apartment also has several other items that are old and fragile and that I have inherited from my family. Please treat them with care and respect as they are invaluable to me and hopefully create a unique athmosphere for my guests.
Pets are welcome. My cat does live there normally, but won't be around when I have guests.
