This classy 1902 Jugendstil building on Helsinki’s Central Railway Square was renovated in 2021. Each apartment is decked out with Finnish furniture from brands like Hakola, Artek and custom pieces from Studio Joanna Laajisto, who designed the apartments.

It was a great experience for me and my 10-year-old daughter. We loved the apartment and the location. It was spacious, cozy and very quiet. We could end the day in the sauna. I will never stay at an ordinary hotel again in Helsinki. Thanks Bob W.!

A nice and clean apartment in the center of Helsinki. You will find everything you need in the apartment. It is located near the train station and the city center so almost perfect for sight seeing. Customer service employees were a great help for all kinds of issues.

It was very easy and convenient location to get around Helsinki, close to train station. #6 tram right outside, supermarket easy. Place was clean and spacious. We had issue with sofa bed not made up, then they made up the wrong one, then told us to do it ourselves. That was our only issue. They do answer texts or whats app very quickly. I do appreciate their commitment to the environment and design aesthetic and use of Finnish products in the rooms.

Hi Mjeeps, thank you so much for your feedback! It goes a long way in helping us get things right. I’m sorry to hear about the issue with the sofa-bed. Next time you can always reach us out through our 24/7 Guest Success Team and let us know you will need us to make the sofa-bed in advanced, we are always there for you and once again sorry for the confusion. Thank you for staying with us, and I hope to host you again at one of my apartments in Helsinki, Tallinn, Madrid or London. Best, Bob W.

The XL penthouse apartment was an excellent choice for our family of 7+ baby. Rooms were very clean. Bob was responding very quickly if we needed something. The location is ideal. Only thing I’d change is to get a different kind of coffee maker. 💁‍♀️
