Beautiful, spacious top floor apartment with bay view in central Helsinki

Extremely bright top floor apartment in a beautiful 1920s building in central Helsinki. The apartment has high ceilings and open views onto Töölö bay over the rooftops. It is within short walking distance from the sea, parks, shops, restaurants, numerous museums (The National Museum of Finland, Kiasma Museum of Modern Art, Ateneum Art Museum, the Amos Rex museum), and more. It is also a short stroll away from the new state-of-the-art Central Library (a great place to read, work, have coffee - no need to have a library card, though you can get one very easily if staying a bit longer).

Transport links could not be better. The Central Railway station is within 10-15 minutes walk. The nearest airport shuttle bus stop is even closer: 2 minutes from the apartment, getting you to and from the airport in less than 30 mins. Trams to all parts of the city centre and beyond are also on the doorstep (a block away).

Three Universities are within walking (or short tram ride) distance - The University of Helsinki, Hanken School of Economics and The University of the Arts Helsinki. Aalto University is easily accessible through public transport.

The apartment has one very large bedroom with two double beds and a second smaller alcove bedroom. The rent includes high speed wireless broadband. There is a TV with no subscription channels however (Finnish TV, that said, broadcasts numerous programmes - from popular TV shows to documentaries - in English, subtitled in Finnish). The shower room is fully equipped (with towels, shampoo, washing machine, etc.) and there is a separate WC. The open plan kitchen is also fully equipped , including a nespresso coffee machine and dishwasher. There is elevator / lift access to the top floor (note: no step free access at ground level).

Finally, there is a piano in the flat. Feel free to play it, but preferably through head-phones (provided). It is a hybrid acoustic / digital.

Any questions, do not hesitate to ask!
