Perfect hotel experience for me. Spatious, comfortable room on the top floor gave me a very quiet night. The bathroom is very impressive. Maybe a detail to some but I liked the fact that you can dim the light, even in the bathroom. A nice extra was the "5 o' clock tea" I found in the cupboard, water cooker and... More

I stayed here on my way north of the Arctic Circle. Flying in from Canada, I took a shared cab from the airport, still pricey at about 40 Euro, so budget your cab-to-airport in with this hotel. Upon arrival, staff were friendly and beautifully poly-lingual. It's embarrassing to hear better English spoken in Helsinki than I get back home in... More

Very nice rooms. Very Quiet. Great breakfast! Organic porridge and Finnish berries! The best croissants I have ever tasted. Location was great and beds were excellent. I´ll stay again. Ihan mielettömän kiva hotelli ja ihana aamianen. En jäänyt kaipaamaan pekonia ja munakokkelia.

The Fabian Hotel has a lot going for it - I had a very nice stay. Room: 5/5, Sleep: 5/5, Breakfast: 3/5, General impression: 4/5 The room was very nice, I loved the fact that it was quiet (except for the person banging on the floor at 6:00 am on the next floor). The shower was awesome with its massaging... More

Great hotel. The hotel staff have to be the friendliest in any hotel. It is in a very central position . Rooms are very clean and nicely decorated. Breakfast buffet good. The only minor problem we had was working out the light switches in our room!! Would happily stay again.

very surprised to see this as nr. 1 in Helsinki. Arrived late at the hotel only to find that no room service or restaurant were available. Even the mini bar was close to empty, only containing a few crackers and a chocolate to eat. I was at the reception offered that they could make me a sandwich from the breakfast... More

Booked one night at Hotel Fabian as our first stop for our honeymoon trip, and the hotel staff has been very kind to have upgraded us to a bigger room, with a congratulation card and a box of chocolate to welcome us. It was very sweet of them to have prepared that. Hotel staffs are very friendly and helpful with... More

Nothing too fancy - but nothing bad. A great place to stay for a couple of nights or so. We were heading up to the Article Circle and stayed for 2 nights in transit? It was a perfect choice. Room was comfortable, bed n doona were good quality, shower was exceptionally good, no complaints. Room felt cosy - even with... More

Nice rooms, complicated bedlights. Swimming mattresses. But pleasant room. However, very crowded and tight breakfast room. Breakfast fine but area too small. Extremely complicated TV remote and non-working WiFi through and iPad
