Helsinki is a fabulous city to explore. With pastel coloured Art Nouveau buildings and a compact city centre area, the main sights are within walking distance of one another. As a stylish Scandinavian capital, there are some true gems among Helsinki’s Airbnbs. From century-old villas to designer lofts with saunas, here are the most unique Airbnb finds in Helsinki.
The Design District is one of Helsinki’s most sought-after areas and boasts dozens of boutique shops, designer stores, art galleries, restaurants and cafés. Located in the centre of Design District, this spacious 78-square-metre apartment with wooden floors sleeps four. With €99 per night, a visitor gets a stay in an apartment with a unique, secluded inner courtyard at the centre of the stylish hustle and bustle of Helsinki.
Käpylä is a popular wooden house district in Helsinki, and this charming Aribnb is located in one of the area’s old villas, which dates back to 1920. The house oozes of Scandi elegance and, naturally, has a sauna too. There are some cosy cafés in the area, and the Central Railway Station is about 20 minutes away by bus or a tram. A night in an authentic Finnish villa costs €169 and is a truly unique experience in Helsinki.
With light flooding in from the tall windows, this design loft with a sea view and a sauna is a unique Helsinki experience. Located in the biggest cultural centre of Helsinki, the apartment is tastefully decorated with Finnish design brands such as Iittala, Marimekko, and Johanna Gullichsen. Starting from €115 per night, this stunning Airbnb in Ruoholahti district has excellent commuting options to the city centre.

Our Trips are suitable for both solo travelers, couples and friends who want to explore the world together.
Culture Trips are deeply immersive 5 to 16 days itineraries, that combine authentic local experiences, exciting activities and 4-5* accommodation to look forward to at the end of each day.
