The City of Helsinki Public Works Department’s car hotel offers a convenient way to store summer vehicles over the winter.
Resident parking permits are not valid on streets for vehicles taken out of traffic for a limited period. However, resident parking permits can be used to store vehicles in the car hotel. Vehicle storage in the car hotel without a resident parking permit is subject to a charge.
The car hotel is located in Tattarisuo (address Kaasutintie 4). Another car hotel used to operate in Kalasatama, but this service has been discontinued due to the development of the Kalasatama area.
The car hotel is a fenced and illuminated area with 24-hour video surveillance. You can bring to the car hotel up to two vehicles at a time, to be stored for 30–210 days. The car hotel serves private individuals who are Helsinki residents.
The service is free of charge with a resident parking permit. Without a permit, the charge is 35 euro´s per month. The service is highly popular, so it is recommended that vehicle owners find out about the availability of space before bringing vehicles to Tattarisuo. The car hotel service hours are the same as opening hours of the car removal centre at the same address.
Instructions for resident parking permit holders
- Make an agreement for vehicle storage at the Public Works Department’s Customer Service before bringing the vehicle to the car hotel.
