My AIRBNB PROFILE:
I am usually here to give the keys to my apartment personally. The key works to the door downstair and to door of the apartment. You can leave the key anywhere INSIDE the apartment when you leave. Good place is to kitchen/living room table. Or i come and pick up the key personally. It depends on what we have agreed.
I only have 2 keys one is always with me so please be careful and do not loose it. If you loose the key it takes around 40€ to get a new one and unfortenately who losts the key must pay for it. So keep it safe.

This is a quiet green area with friendly neigbours who hardly never bother you so let's keep it that way.
ETELÄ-KARJALAN KESKUSSAIRAALA (main hospital emergencies between mon to fri 15.00 – 06.00, weekends) ADDRESS: Valto-Käkelänkatu 1 phone +358 5 352 5743. You can go straight to the hospital or call first. There might be hours long waiting lines depending on emergency. 24 hour hospital.
ARMILAN SAIRAALA ADDRESS: Armilankatu 44 PHONE: +358 5 352 7260. This is a number to center of the hospital where you can call if you are not in a hurry. Lines (in finnish) are usually long unless you call right at 8.00 waiting can take up to 30 mins so if you have example broker/burn something i recommend you to go staraight to the hospital by taxi to get help. They do speak English at the hospital sometimes even Russian. This is not 24 hours hospital just day time Monday to Thursday 8.00 - 15.00 and Fridays 8.00 - 15.00
From my apartment BUS no 2
Bus no 2 leaves right next to the house (Between Onnelantie 40 – Onnelantie 38; same side of the road the house is.)
Bus leaves every 15 past from Hakali and it takes about 10-15 minutes to get here, so for example if you are leaving from 11.15pm please go to the bus stop around 11.20. You must give a sign to the bus driver so he/she knows when to stop. Just rise your hand when the bus arrives and it should stop. Bus cost 3,20€ one way
The bus no 2 goes to Koulukatu in the center of Lappeenranta. Right next to bus stops is Kauppakeskus Armada where you can find a grosery store and Coffee House/Rosso (cafe/restaurant)
Bus no 2 leaves from Koulukatu in every 15 past. For example if you want to leave around 16. Go to the bus stop at 16.05. In Koulukatu is the main station (no station building but all the cities busses stops there) in the center of Lappeenranta.
If you must go to University of Lappeenranta from here, take bus no2 to center (To stop: Kauppakeskus Armada/Keskusta) and change it to bus no 1 which goes straight to university. From university take bus no 1 to center (Kaupakeskus Armada/Keskusta) and change to bus no 2. Unfortenately you can not see the station where you are on the bus, so you must know when to buzz to stop.
There is another bus, bus no 1 that leaves about 1km from here. It goes straight to University of Lappeenranta.
Taxi number in Lappeenranta is 020060400. It costs around 15-20€ by taxi to center of Lappeenranta, to train and bus station too. I am not sure if you can ring the number from abroad phone but you can try to call +35820060400. I do not guarantee is number work from your phone unless you have pre-paid finland phone number. Taxis are quite expensive especially at night when it could cost around 30€ from center to Onnelantie.
