Amazing light-filled loft-like home in Jugend building from 1911 in the heart of hip Kallio district. Our place features big windows, high ceilings, original floors and great sunsets. Also, amazing bed. We're right next to cafés, restaurants and the bustling Kallio nightlife. Great grocery store across the road. Buses and trams stop just outside, the subway (Sörnäinen) is a 5 minute walk away. You'll be downtown in 10 minutes. Ideally suited for couples, solo adventurers & families with kids.
The building is one of the beautiful older ones in a district that has a lot of 1950s architecture - a nice pink gem of a jugend building. The blueprint of the apartment is like a mushroom/diamond shape, with the living room and fully equipped kitchen on one side and the bedroom on the other. There's no door to the bedroom, but is out of sight and around the corner from the rest of the apartment. There's also a fireplace (we like to burn candles in it instead of wood), and the newly refurbished bathroom features a powerful shower and heated floors. The original windows from 1911 let in lots of light and the ceilings are high, so the room height is over 3 meters, making the space very light and lofty.
You'll have the whole place to yourselves, we hope you take care of it as if it were your own.
