The distance from the airport to our hotel is approximately 25 kilometres. In addition to using your own car, you can get here by choosing any of the following options.
1) Train + bus
P and I trains depart from the airport railway station. Select either one: both will take you to the Helsinki central railway station. You can buy your ticket from a ticket vending machine at the airport. Select "seutu (regional)" as the ticket type. The ticket is valid for 80 minutes, during which time you will need to make it to Tapiola so that you can use the same ticket on the bus. The trip from the airport to Helsinki takes approximately 32 minutes. From the railway station, you can walk to the Kamppi bus station or take the metro.
