The main two advantages of using Airbnb are the fact that you get to meet local people and that you can generally find cheaper accommodation than at the average hotel. Both these things are important in Helsinki, as this is a place where housing tends to be rather expensive. If you find it difficult to research for suitable accommodation, check out the best Airbnbs in Helsinki, Finland below.


We handpicked these listings carefully, considering (wherever possible) Superhost status, recent guest reviews, location, accommodation type, prices, availability of dates, decor, and amenities. The image galleries get refreshed with the latest updates regularly. They were last updated on June 21, 2024.

1. Cozy studio in the Design District (from USD 95)

Staying in this cozy studio amid the Design District will allow you to make the most of your time on vacation in the city. Not only will you be surrounded by design shops, but you will also have a wide variety of options for decent restaurants just around the corner. Even though you are in a vibrant area, you won’t be bothered by the sounds of the city since the window of your room faces into a peaceful courtyard.

You are welcome to spend some time unwinding in the sauna below in the building, which guests can book for private use on Friday evenings. Spend a relaxing time inside the unit by watching a movie on the 32-inch high-definition TV with Chromecast or reading one of the books provided.

The beauty of Helsinki and its special vibe

There is something special about Helsinki - the sea, the green areas, the wooden houses, they all give Helsinki a special vibe. Walking around residential areas with wooden houses is a very relaxing activity, and so is having a picnic with a seaside view. And while you’re planning the picnic, don’t forget to get some of the tasty traditional Finnish pastries. The city center can get rather crowded, making it a good spot for people-watching. Helsinki is for sure a place worth visiting. Make the most of your trip with one of these Airbnbs in Helsinki. Try exploring nearby attractions and check out some of the best day trips from the city too!
