This hotel has become our favorite whenever we're staying in a hotel in Helsinki. Once again, this was the perfect choice. The location is very good near everything in Helsinki and close to public transportation (bus, tram, train and subway) if you want to explore further. We arrived at the hotel very early before noon. However, we were able to...

Perfectly located in the heart of Helsinki but still on a relatively quiet alley Hotel Torni has an interesting history to say the least. Maybe the most (in)famous period was the aftermath of WWII as the allied control commission, led by Red Army officers, took up residence in the hotel, but there is much more to add to the story...

I cant tell about the hotel, but bar atop is must-see. It small and stuffed but servers nice drinks (I recommend gin and tonic) and you can get off to circle gallery (around most of the bar) with beautiful view on either blizzard or Helsinky harbour. Both worthy to see.

Quirky and individual - a special place to stay. From the Ateljee bar at the top of the tower to the excellent buffet breakfast- this is a well situated hotel for a weekend break. Yes the rooms can be a little small but the rest makes up for it. We will stay here again when we next visit Helsinki.

My first impression of this hotel was disappointment as the reception area is quite basic and certainly not plush. However, our room was interestingly decorated with, strangely, two bathrooms, one of which had a wall of glass around it. There was a small sitting area off the bedroom with the usual coffee/tea facilities and fridge. There is an interesting bar...

Historic building, very centrally located in the middle of Helsinki. A fantastic hotel. Price depends on the time of the year: sometimes inaccessible, sometimes good deal. Breafast buffet is excellent. Beautiful view over Helsinki from the bar on the 12th floor.

Torni's Art Noveau architecture is an attraction itself. Nowadays cannot imagine that this building served as head office for Soviet Army occupation forces after WW2. Built in 1931, as the tallest building in Finland kept the position up to 1976. Once the occupation forces left the place the building was in ruins. The stoic Finns rebuilt the place and later...
