In the heart of the city, by the water
You will find us in the best location in the city, Siltasaari, where the city centre and the Kallio district meet. In Siltasaari, you are in the middle of the city, but away from the rush of the city centre. We are right on the shore of Eläintarhanlahti bay, and our area offers a wealth of services and culture, as well as many different accommodation options.
Guests arriving by car can find parking spaces in the vicinity of Paasitorni. The spaces are subject to a charge. The car park at Jaffa Station (Arena Center Hakaniemi) provides long-term parking options.
