Hellsten Espoo
Ranked #6 of 12 Hotels in Espoo
Reviewed 13 August 2011

Location is extremely convenient, with easy access to the shopping centre and the Leppavaara station. Most offices in Espoo are also very close. Helsinki City Centre and the Airport are reasonably close.

I would recommend this hotel to everyone.

Room Tip: Don't get the single room... get the double bedroom .....

Big and comfortable rooms for a good price. Breakfast is included although not so varied. Situated in a quiet place and has a free parking.

We stayed here on a business trip to Helsinki.
While the rooms were clean and basic (if you don't mind not having room serviced/towels changed for the 3 nights) there really was nothing much to recommend it, and it is overpriced for location and amenties.
First night we were told the bar closes at 10pm, 2nd night on arriving at the bar at 9.30pm we were informed it was closing - not encouraging as there is nothing else in the area.
Also our rooms were prepaid, but when checking in we were told they weren't and the company travel agent had to clarify that they were actually paid.
However a note in the room said it has recently been bought by Hellsten (Sept 2010) and was previously StayAt so perhaps it will improve in time.
(P.S. I suspect some of the multi-lingual 4* reviews are fictional?)

I booked a one-night stay at StayAt Espoo in April for a rate that was confirmed by the hotel. I printed out the receipt. The next day, the hotel emailed me and said that the rate was a mistake and that the rate was TEN times higher, but they would give me an upgrade to a room with a sauna. When I politely emailed back (and to their corporate headquarters) that was classic bait and switch and I was happy with the room I reserved, I heard nothing in reply. I can say nothing about the quality of the hotel but was amazed that the hotel would try something like that before I had even arrived.

Avoid this hotel and check/confirm the rate before you arrive.

Silently navigate away from the web pages of this place. If you're kinda masochistic and wanna punish yourself by staying here, then this would be your first choice!

But if you want to sleep in a clean, silent enviroment, you have to move along. There's literally have mold growing in shower floors and maybe in internal structures as well? Walls are paper thin and you could hear ALL from the surrounding rooms.

Decoration and inner structure reminds me of 80's Soviet style inmate housing, only armed guards are missing, supporting environment is ready.

Room had a small refrefrigerator constantly making this ultra-annoying buzzing sound. Wireless hi-speed internet is slower than using your cell phone for surfing around.

My blood pressure rises as I'm writing this... have...to...stop...writing...

Please do yourself a favor and do not choose this one!
