“Old Helsinki and luxus harbour”
Reviewed April 1, 2013

A bit of taste of old Helsinki and nice harbour where are the most expensive boats in Finland. The other side is the opposite: there are red brick made student appartments and Viking Line harbour for cruises to Stockholm and Tallinn.

“Nice compact area to stroll around”
Reviewed January 20, 2013

Nice 'town inside town' and still only couple minutes away, by tram, from major tourist attractions.
In case you like to have a hotel a bit further away the very city of Helsinki this could be your place.

“A walk with a view”
Reviewed August 31, 2012

A group of friends did a walking tour of the Katajanokka area. The architecture is fantastic and well worth a slow walk through the area.

“Island in the city centre”
Reviewed July 6, 2012

To walk around this little peninsula or almost an island, houses are gorgeous, so much jugend architecture that i don't think there is anywhere else a small suburb like this. Also popped into the Old Customs Warehouse at Katajanokanlaituri 5, where Finnish Design Shop has made their "nest" with beautiful examples of Nordic design from across decades and lovely café, my Helsinki experience was just raised in new level: Excellent!

“A nice place for a walk and some classic `Jugend`Architecture”
Reviewed June 23, 2012

A short walk from the senate square this older area of Helsinki has some of the nicest Jugend architecture in Helsinki. It lacks attractions but is nice for a quiet walk on a sunny day.
