“Brilliant time in Helsinki”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 31, 2013

Just returned from 6 nights at the Aallonkoti apartments. The apartment was faultless in an excellent location near the station and on the doorstep of all the sights and places to visit.

Yes...many of the current reviews mention there are adjacent building work. That's only to be expected next to a brand new complex. The apartments are pristine, exceptionally decorated and there is no impact from the other works.

In summary.....
- Location : excellent
- Facilities : excellent
- Check-in : easy at the Basti bar next door or via the apartment office
- Rooms : excellent
- decor and utilities : excellent
- Proximity to sights? : all within walking distance

Would I stay here again? : DEFINITELY YES

Thinking about coming back next summer. Loved it.

Thanks Ossi and the team.

I stayed at Aallonkoti a week ago and it was a wonderful experience.
The staff was really friendly and helpful at all times. They assisted me with all the questions I had about Helsinki and even made some useful recommendations.
The apartment was spotless and clean, like every 5 stars hotel. The bed is comfortable and all the technology is brand new (smart tv, washing machine, dryer, dishwasher, oven...).
Location is more than convenient, less than 10 minutes walk to the central railway station, right in the center of Helsinki.
Having your own fully equiped kitchen helps a lot considering how expensive is Finland. And you have a great restaurant and bar downstairs, where the staff is also really nice and they serve high quality food and drinks for a good price.
For the full Finnish experience, book the sauna area. After a cold day walking around the city, the best thing to do when you are back is to enjoy a nice hot sauna while you drink a beer and watch some tv.

Summarizing: awesome experience, professional friendly staff, great rooms/sauna/restaurants and as far as I know the best quality-price in Helsinki.
I'll be back in Finland soon and I don't have any doubts that I will book an apartment here again.

You can not go wrong with this place - it's brand new with excellent quality furnishings and fittings, and has everything you could possibly need in an apartment. It's right in the centre so walking distance to everything. It's a little hard to find but head to the new construction buildings at the back of the train station and you will find it. And check out the sauna facilities - sooooo nice. Oh, and we got an afternoon checkout with no problems at all - customer service is top notch. Would definitely stay again and recommend to others.

This serviced apartment was exactly what we needed with our family of 5. Very clean and spacious enough for our family. Very modern facilities, Great kitchen facilities, easy access to wifi, laundry and good sized bathroom made it an easy and pleasant stay. If I were to pick a "negative", it would be in trying to find the apartment amongst the current construction works - obviously only a short term issue and will be even more convenient when the works have finished. We found the location very handy for us, not having been to Helsinki before, and at the end of the day from wandering around was like coming home. I would be more than happy to recommend Apartment Aallonkoti.

Apartment Hotel Aallonkoti is a home away from home - equipped with all the trappings of modern living: a good sound system, a rain shower, Samsung washer & dryer, a well-designed kitchen with the works. And most importantly, free Wifi.

My main regret is only having two nights in this apartment! The cost was a bit high, but at the midway point in a 16 day vacation and we wanted a comfortable location and the ability to do laundry and eat in. The apartment appears to be geared toward longer term business travelers who are working in one of the company's in the complex and it's clear that they're building more capacity so the location is in the center of ongoing construction, but you cannot hear a thing as the walls and windows were well constructed. The furniture is lovely and comfy and the dishes and silverware are actually pretty high end. There is a fantastic and lengthy glassed in balcony that opens up if you choose. It's a lovely place to sit and go through the day's photos or take your meals. The train station, an inexpensive bus to the airport, and art museums are nearby and the location is prime for embarking upon long walks in the city.
