This top floor studio is located in the vivid Kallio district. The apartment faces the quiet and scenic Torkkelinmäki area, and the unobstructed view opens to the leafy Franzen park. In the morning you can enjoy the morning sun with your coffee or tea, and if you want to enjoy them outside, the park has nice shades, grass fields and benches.
Though the district is quite lively, the building itself, and especially the park side, is very quiet. You'll sleep well.
All the necessary services are literally around the corner. You'll find two late hour grocery stores nearby, a 24h grocery store within a 5 minute walk, and a pharmacy and a liquor store around the corner. There are a couple of restaurants in the block, and the pub/bar street Vaasankatu is just a 3 minute walk away. The location could hardly be any better for experiencing Kallio, and is also extremely suitable for experiencing whole of Helsinki.
The studio is 31 (website hidden). with an excellent, spacious layout, and houses a couple comfortably even for longer periods of time. The kitchen is well equipped with a fridge-freezer combo, a gas stove and an electric oven. The small bathroom also has a laundry machine. A good set of dishes and cooking equipment is provided. Coffee drinkers have a choice of brewing equipment, a water boiler is also included.
The apartment has high speed WLAN, a PS3 console for games and video and a full-HD TV to accompany them. The bed is a cotton futon, sized for two people (160cm wide). The sofa is also comfortable enough to sleep on but if necessary, an extra mattress is available.
The public transport is very accessible. The closest tram stops are right next to the building, and almost all different types of public transport go through Sörnäinen (or Kurvi), which is just 5 minutes away. The trams go every five minutes, but the location is also good for walking. You'll walk to the city center in roughly 20 minutes, either through Hakaniemi market or by Töölönlahti bay.
The studio is equipped with:
- a very zen futon (160cm)
- sheets and towels
- a kitchen with a good set of appliances, dishes and equipment
- high speed internet (WLAN)
- full-HD TV
- PS3 for games and DVD's
