The Almost@Home Lounge is located near Gate 32 in the non-Schengen area of Helsinki airport. It’s accessible via Priority Pass, and it’s one of the nicest Priority Pass lounges that I’ve been to.
When I checked in, the lounge agent was nice and welcoming, and she asked if I had ever been to the lounge. I told her that I hadn’t, and she explained the concept of the lounge, which is supposed to be like visiting someone’s home.
To the left of the entrance, there are some booths, workstations, and amenities focused toward younger travelers such as children’s books and a video game console.
The food area was designed to look like someone’s kitchen, complete with kitchen appliances like a stand mixer and cutlery in drawers that you had to open. The food options were slightly better than the food options in either the Aspire lounge or the Finnair lounge, but perhaps only marginally so.
The main seating area is made to look like a living room.
All in all, this is perhaps my favorite Priority Pass lounge I’ve been to. It feels cozy and comforting, it never got too crowded, the food options are decent, and there are some interesting amenities like having a PlayStation.
