I have had this hotel for a business trip, and it was really great because it was in the city center and you can easily get to anywhere in no time. Tram, metro and bus stops just around the corner, also the Helsinki Central Railway station is like 5 minutes walking distance. The room was spacious, clean and cleaning done...

This hotel is basic but comfortable & clean, the central location is ideal for exploring the city. On the ground floor you have a coffee shop and a bar / restaurant which are both open to the public and can get busy at times, though I never had a problem using either. The staff were particularly helpful and polite from...

Unfortunately that was the one advantage of this hotel. The room was small and it's really need renovation at all. TV had only 2 chanells. We were woken up at 5 am with a terrible noise and couldn't sleep any more. This hotel would be a good choise for a night if you had a stopover in Helsinki on your...

We stayed here for 3 nights at the end of October. The location was fantastic - a very easy walk to everything, tram and bus stops and metro station right outside our door. The room was good and interesting to be in - the bathroom up a few stairs from the bedroom. It's very noisy in this hotel - lots...

The staff members were very helpful. The breakfast buffet was OK (get there early for the better eggs). The room needed some upgrade, except for a nice bathroom. The real problem, which would not bother some people, is the noise. There is traffic noise (no honking, but buses and trams and cars), and people noise from the bars nearby on...

My wife and I traveled to Helsinki to visit family. We tried to get into more expensive hotels but couldn't and I'm glad. This was a fantastic place to stay. We were able to walk 5 minutes from the central train station to the hotel. Right in the heart to Helsinki. We could walk to all the shopping centers and...

Best western hotel close by the central station, good location. Ordinary room with no international TV channels except of Sweden channels. Breakfast buffet needs some variety and is quite ordinary. Positive side is the location, negative side is the breakfast buffet and the room which was ordinary. Wifi in the room was weak, I had to go to the lobby...

Take this hotel if you want to be in town centre. It is not to expensive. (no elevator) You can meet interesting people in a hotel bar with good food. The bar is to be converted to a breakfast place in the morning. Walking distance to esplanade, catedral and market place. Next to the hotel is entrance to big underground...

Reasonably priced hotel in a great location for exploring the city, and also close to the railway station. The breakfast was excellent and there was plenty of choice. My room was at the back of the hotel which could be a little noisy due to a large extractor fan outside, but I guess that the main road side would have...

It's hard to comment whether this was value for money as we happened to be here during the World Gymnastics Championship and accommodation in Helsinki was even more expensive than usual. The bathroom was a wet room but the shower good. Hairdryer provided. No safe and no aircon when room was a bit stuffy. A kettle, tea and coffee provided...
