Spend your holiday close to nature in vibrant Espoo!
When staying at Hotel Matts you have incredible opportunities to what Espoo has to offer in sports and outdoors as well as services. The seaside and its beaches are just 2 kilometres away. And if you like culture, shopping and restaurants you have come to the right place. Visit the Espoo Modern art museum EMMA or go for a round of golf on the Espoo greens. Try the “Skipperi” city boats that set off from the seaside café Nokkalan Majakka. Right next door to the hotel is Iso Omena – a shopping centre that has something for everyone.

Espoo Waterfront Walkway, “Espoon Rantaraitti”
The walkway is altogether 40 kilometres long on the Espoo coastline. It offers great sea views in the fresh sea air. The way from Hotel Matts to the coast is only 2 kilometres and you can walk there, ride a rental bike or take the bus. Don’t forget to stop at Nokkalan Majakka for refreshments!
Nuuksio national park
Nature is close everywhere in Espoo and very reachable from our hotel. For example, you can travel to the Nuuksio national park for a day trip. The ride there in the car is only about 20 kilometres. The park is also reachable by bus.
Get to know our neighbouring city Helsinki, our capital! Helsinki city centre is easiest to reach by metro. The closest stop is literally on our doorstep and the journey only takes about 20 minutes.
In Helsinki, we recommend visiting the historical Seurasaari. This famous museum island is perfect for a day trip. There are a beach and a high-quality restaurant, Seurasaaren Kruunu, with its huge terrace area. The oldest part of this unique gem was built in 1890.
The new and modern part of Helsinki is Jätkäsaari. This urban ecological part of town is located just a short walk from the Ruoholahti metro station. From the Jätkäsaari restaurant scene, we can happily recommend restaurant Vessel Burger and the quaint Vessel Bistro and its Scandinavia-Mediterranean à la carte.
