  • In bookstores, Aalto designed and very clean. This place is clean, even when looking for a book, will want. Unreadable language, but a beautiful photo album clean often rather long time. In the city rented a toilet not so much with Moomin stationery as well as much and I enjoyed it.

  • Bought here postcards to send to friends. The cashier also sold us stamps to send cards to Russia and told where to find the box. But the choice of "tourist" cards are smaller than at the station.

  • I was in town for a few hours and visited this great bookstore. I would have liked to spend some more time, because they really have a lot of nice books I haven't seen anywhere else.  more »

  • Excellent selection of books. Bit pricey. Good, central location.
  • It is always nice to visit and to admire the architecture of Alvar Aalto. The bookstore has also good variety and the staff is helpful.
  • I wish they sorted all of their bookshelves. The Italian bookshelf had books in Russian (!). The classics bookshelf wasn't organized at all which makes it impossible to find anything in it. The variety of books overall is decent. There books in Finnish, Swedish and English, as well as some collections in other languages.
  • The best book shopping in town. Great choice of books in foreign languages, but also in Finnish of course.
  • one of the best bookstores in Helsinki, usually it's pretty crowded but you can find almost any book here

Where to stay in Helsinki

Set yourself up with easy access to many of Helsinki's most popular tourist sites by staying in the city's bustling and modern center. You'll find that the area is packed full of shops, restaurants, and bars, plus it's conveniently close to both the city's main train station and energetic waterfront. Though there's certainly a range of options when it comes to big-name hotel chains and upscale accommodation, prices are generally higher throughout most of the center, so consider staying at a hostel to cut down on costs. Hostels typically offer a solid location in or near the city center at a fraction of the cost of a big chain.
