Not much here and nothing super attractive about the building. Tourist info desk and plenty of brochures plus clean toilets. Varying free exhibitions in main lobby.

Came here for a wine reception following conference. Very spoilt, as the ballroom was beautiful, not sue if you can normally enter the premises but worth a look if you can!

Looking for a free toilet in Helsinki City? Seems like mission impossible - until you visit the City Hall. There is a changing display related to Helsinki, lots of info material to take with and very spacious and clean toilets. Don't let the receptionists scare you, this place is open for all.

Had a reception at Helsinki City Hall. It was elegant and had old world charm. Loved the whole city so easy to get around, friendly people and great shopping.

We received a warm welcome when we entered. They have maps and brochures which was very helpful. But the best was, in the lobby are 4 desktop computers that they let us use for free! This was a great stop for us.

Helsinki city hall is centrally located in the city so you can visit several attractions from there. You can get a lot of useful information about places to visit from the tourist counter inside noting that the staff are very helpful

We took a wander into the city hall and were pleasantly surprised to find a great exhibition of 50's food adverts. We had a lovely wander round and I'm sure other exhibitions would be just as good. Great tourist information section too for other things to do.

Very nice city all, even if it is easy to compare between each other the scandinavian cities, and if compared it lacks of their majesty.
