Good breakfast. With bar and restaurant with intense movement. Great location, very close to the Central Station and the bus stop leading to the airport, and easy access to most tourist attractions. Cleaning and tidying the correct rooms. Unfortunately room 211 is just opposite the place where the deposit Hotel trash cans, and very bad soundproofing in the ceiling as... More

This small and simple hotel is very centrally located in Helsinki, only 50 metres from the railway station. I only had a couple of hours to explore the city, but the very helpful receptionist gave me a map and indicated some points of interest which just about filled my two hour slot perfectly. The rooms are quite small but well... More

The hotel was rated 4,5 stars, but I would say it is barely a 3 star. The lobby of the hotel is shared by a coffee shop and a Mexican restaurant. Breakfast is served in the Mexican restaurant. Room amenities are really at the very basic level, the free wifi is slow and unreliable. Since there is not a proper... More

Stayed at Best Western Carlton for business which means I only spent a very short time at the hotel; arrived late and left early. The hotel fits that purpose very well, the location is excellent right next to the metro station University of Helsinki as well as the railway station and pretty much everything in central Helsinki. The room was... More

The Best Western Carlton is located about a 5 minute walk from the central train station and about a 3 minute walk from the central business district of Helsinki. The hotel occupies the entire first floor of a older building. Cafe Iguana and Roberts Coffee on the ground floor. Quiet room, slept well, clean, plenty of hot water. Good breakfast.... More

The big advantage with this hotel is its central location, a few minutes walk from the railway station and with tram stops almost outside the front door. The room was okey, but could need a little remake because it was a bit shabby. The staff at the reception was really friendly and offerrd to carry my bag up to the... More

I visited this hotel for one night alone during Matka - Nordic travel fair 2015. I paid 99€ for that and I think it is too much. I still would say I had a really positive stay! I checked in in a hurry and it was faster than I thought. My room was really nice and first time travelling alone... More

Been in this hotel for 4 day work trip to Helsinki. have to say the price (for Helsinki) is very good, especially considering that its a very central hotel. Hotel staff were really nice, and accommodating. Rooms are basic and a bit small, but clean. Breakfast is reasonably ok, but don't expect something wow.....because its not. The strength of this...
