Pori is a popular place to stay during the big summer events. The famous Pori hospitality plays a big role when the locals make their own apartments available to event guests. Visit Pori Oy will provide apartments and rooms during the SuomiAreena/Iskelmä Festival week from 26 June to 2 July 2023 and during the Pori Jazz Festival from 12 to 16 July 2023.
Visit Pori Oy has a long tradition of providing private accommodation for event guests. The people of Pori have been offering their homes to guests for over 30 years, with accommodation ranging from studio apartments to detached houses. Best of all, all apartments and rooms are located within 6 km of the city centre!
The rental price includes: bed, blanket, pillow and linen, towels and bath towels, as well as washing facilities (toilet/shower).
As a rule, we offer apartment accommodation where the apartment is entirely for the guest’s own use.
We also offer some room accommodation, where the owner rents a room or several rooms in his/her apartment and is present. The apartments are furnished homes.
Apartments and rooms are priced according to the number of beds in them. You must book accommodation for a minimum of two nights (2).
If you have any questions about private accommodation, please contact us directly by e-mail at firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone +358 44 701 7908.
