Guests often search for this popular amenity
Rented on a monthly basis mostly, but worth asking for shorter stays too. A functional single room apartment (20 m2) in the heart of Sörnäinen close by the metro station. The kitchen is recently refurbished with dishwasher, oven, etc. The room has two single beds (box-spring), each 80cm wide. The building has laundy facilities. Great for transport connections; metro and tram stops to the center are within 200 m. The airport bus (615) also passes by, count some 45 min for the trip.

The space
This is a single room apartment (20 m2), a traditional "chambre de bonne". It is situated in the 5th floor of an apartment building with a lift that dates back to 30s. The bathroom is tiny but newly refurbished. There is a shower, toilet and a sink. No frills.

The kitchen is new with a stove, oven/microwave, dishwasher, coffee maker and a fridge with freezer.

There is no wifi available and no TV either! The local phone companies offer a prepaid sim-card for 24e/month.

There is a traditional feeling to this studio with many furniture that has been in the family since my grandparents. It is usually used by family members, but for summer, we are all off traveling and the space is up for use.

Where you’ll be

Helsinki, Finland

Sörnäinen is a traditional working class neighbourhood built between the word wars when many workers moved to Helsinki thanks to the growing industrialisation. For example, my building is from the 30s, it's a classical style from that epoque.
The area has kept its rough side; you see many walks of live there from all kinds of low-lives to hipsters, students and immigrants but also very normal folks who have lived there for ages. It for sure changes from what you see in the center of Helsinki!

During your stay

If you are a first time Airbnb guest, I, like most other hosts, will appreciate that your profile is filled in and that you share something about yourself with me. After all, you are coming to my home and I consider this being polite, but also to build trust. If your profile picture is a cat or something else than you, I most likely will decline your request. I will need to make my decision to host you based on your profile picture and first name, plus whatever you share in your profile (I will have no access to your Gov.id checked content!).

Upon your arrival to my apartment, my co-host will meet you with the keys.
