Well located in the centre of Helsinki, with easy access to many tourist attractions, shops and restaurants. Staff are very friendly and helpful. Although an old building, hotel looks like it was renovated recently. Our room was spacious and had all the amenities you would expect. Would use again if we return to Helsinki.

I've stayed at several hotels in Helsinki, and this is by far the best in my experience. The whole place is modern, but classically furnished with exceptional taste. The rooms are clean, well equipped and very comfortable. Soundproofing is also very good, with the only occasional annoying sound coming from the lift motors. One thing that really stands out here...

Very comfortable hotel in the centre of Helsinki. Next to the market square around the harhour. Very close to the shopping district as well. Nicely appointed morden rooms. The stuff ware all very freindly, however, they seemed to be a bit streched on a really busy day when the hotel is nearly fully occupied. The hotel offers pretty good value.

We spent two weeks traveling in Finland and Norway and this was the nicest hotel we stayed in during our trip. There's really nothing negative to say. We arrived very early after an overnight flight and were given suggestions by the front desk staff for some sightseeing before check-in time. Rooms are beautiful. Plenty of space. Small sofa. Comfortable beds.... More

Great location, my bedroom had windows on two sides with a great view of the harbour. My bathroom also had a good view of the harbour. The bed was very comfortable and I really didn't want to get out of it. The hotel has a lovely bar and the restaurant has a delicious selection of food. I felt very comfortable... More

After booking a comfort room for two persons, we were updated to a style room and it was a nice room. But instead of a sofa (like in the comfort room) there was only ONE armchair for TWO persons. Of course there is a very nice bar at the hotel but sometimes you are just happy staying at your room... More

Hotel Haven is in an excellent city centre location. Rooms are modern and comfortable with well-equipped bathrooms. Friendly staff and a great selection of Scotch whiskies in the bar. A good hotel for business or leisure.

After arriving very early morning after a long overnight flight, we were greeted by the fabulous friendly staff that we experienced two years ago and were once again informed that our room was ready immediately. We found it hard to leave our 2 night stay at this beautiful hotel which is so homely, comfortable and so cosy. The breakfast was... More

We are very glad we stayed in this location in our overnight stay in Helsinki. We were perfectly situated to experience the harbor front which included the indoor and outdoor market. We checked out the new Finnair ferris wheel and the cathedral which led us to shopping and eventually some live outdoor music in the boulevard just down the street... More
