Just returned from a 4 night stay here and loved it. From the initial introduction from Seija it was clear we made a great choice. Lovely location amongst the Art Deco buildings and only a few minutes walk from the number 4 tram which goes within a 100 metres of the central station. It is only a pleasurable 10 minute... More

First impression was great as the lady manager was up post midnight to welcome us and to provide us with the keys as also all instructions to the apartment. the studio was exactly as we had seen it online and had most of the amenities that one would need for a short / long stay. Our first visit was for... More

We stayed 3 nights at one of essexhome's appartments this august. When we were shown our appartment by the very nice owner, we were almost speechless how wonderful it was. You feel like having your own modern flat with kitchen, sleeping/tv room, bathroom and small closet located almost in central-helsinki. A supermarket can be reached only by 2 minutes walk.... More

We stayed in one of the 4-person units that Essexhomes had. It was a perfect choice for the 3 day stay we had. Our apartment was in Laivastokatu and had a lovely view, facing the sea. Tho owner, Seija gave us tips on eating and buying groceries in Katajanokka and left us a dossier with directions, numbers and opening hours.... More

Overall, we were very pleased with our stay here. The one bedroom apartment was very clean and well maintained. We liked that the bedroom was separated from the sitting room and kitchen so as to give us each our own space. The kitchen and eating area were very comfortable as there is a large window providing lots of natural light.... More

Helsinki is a big city and you can often experience big cities in the different ways. MY favourite Helsinki is located on Katajanokka peninsula, just foot steps away from city centre. Far enough, not to be the tourist trap and close enough to prefer it for the comfy stay in downtown. It's sophisticated - upscale area with the fairy-tale architecture,... More

Very good location - on the island built up in art-deco style, in walking distance to the city center. There is a supermarket nearby and some cafe and restaurants. I definitely will stay at one...

Lovely apartment, well designed, light and airy with everything we needed. On a small island just off from the main areas of Helsinki (easily reached on foot, very convenient, very close to Uspenski Cathedral), quiet area, apartment in residential block in beautiful art nouveau building - i.e. best of both worlds. An apartment is a good choice in Helsinki as... More

Our stay in Helsinki was great, not only because it is a lovely city, but also because our accommodation was great. The Essexhome apartment we stayed in was perfect and the lady was really helpful. And it was quite 'cheap' as well, considering you are in a nice neighbourhood very close the centre of Helsinki. I don't know what else... More

This is by far the nicest place I have stayed in Helsinki for under 100 euros a night. These apartments are spacious, comfortable, sunny and quiet. The neighborhood, near the port and the Uspensky Cathedral, is one of the most attractive in Helsinki and provides easy access to anywhere you want to go. The owner is delightful and full of...
