Travel info

If you arrive by plane, the easiest way to reach the centre of Helsinki is to take a train from the Helsinki-Vantaa airport. Choose the train ‘P’ which is the shortest way to get to Helsinki via Tikkurila. Trains leave about every 10 min and it is about 25 min to reach the Central Railway Station (called ‘Rautatientori’). You can purchase tickets either on arrival from the vending machines (called ‘VR-automaatti’) or beforehand from the website of the Railway Company here.

It is also possible to take a bus, which will take about 50 min and also arrives at the Central Railway Station. A taxi from the airport to the hotel will take about 30 min and cost around 45-50 EUR.
