We was there between the 13 and the 18 June 2013. Nice apartment in the Center of Helsinki. Tramway stop at 100 yards. We was on the third floor, there is a lift, flat was very spacious. there was 5 of us. One bathroom with shower and two toilette, small kitchenette with electric cooker, fridge freezer, microwave, kettle etc.... & TV in the lounge..
The block of flats has no reception desk as mentioned in other review, so before getting there we phoned the hotel to get the code number to open the front door of the building, once inside there is a free phone to call to get the flat number and the keycard next to the phone validated via a scanner. Easy and no problem. When getting this done don't forget to ask for the wi-fi password.
Very happy to have stay there? If you use taxi to go back to the airport, find the number for the yellow taxi they are cheaper. From the Center of Helsinki to the Airport 28 Euro instead of 50. There is also a bus from the station to the airport. If you use the yellow taxi to the airport you have to book it the day before. :-) We did book this place few month before going, so we had a very good deal 380 Euro for 5 person for 5 days.
