While the concept for this hotel may be a bit unnerving for some people, we found we really enjoyed ourselves. There is no reception instead you are sent a five digit code that you use to enter the hotel front door, the same code is entered to get into the lobby, onto the elevator, and to enter your room. So,... More

If you want to stay in the city center at a reasonable price, you can choose Omena. However, you should be aware of that there is no reception (so you have to use the free phone every time you have a problem with the code for instance) and you can not open the windows. The air condition is not satisfactory.... More

I would agree with all mentioned before: good location, value for money, which is hard to find in Helsinki; our room was clean, beds were comfortable and all appliances working. However there are several faults I have to mention here. The shower gel/soap bottle in the bathroom is of no use at all - unhygienic and awkward in use, why... More

I have stayed at Omena hotels several times with mixed emotions. Lately the experiences has got better and better. They have really good locations and this one is in the heart of the city. The price is really affordable and probably the best rate/value that can be found. Rooms are also surprisingly big. The only small minus for me as... More

The location is central, the rooms are clean and most importantly it’s travelling on a budget at its best. Amazing value compared to the many other expensive hotels located in Helsinki City Centre. Would stay here again. Great city too.

Good location, decent size room and bed, walking distance to most things including train station and bus station, close to the hotel Torni for a drink on the top floor. No staff or front desk, just codes, as the title says, its a good cheap way of exploring Helsinki.

We needed just one short night very close to the railway station, and this hotel was perfect for that purpose. There's no reception and no breakfast. The door code was sent by e-mail the day before and then again by SMS on the checkin day, and there was no problem accessing the lobby, the elevator and then the room with... More

We had to call several times to check in 1 hour before. There were stairs before the elevator and it wasn't practical. The location was good, sort of central but the room had problems. First, the tv was dead, second, the duct for the air was in full speed and the air was very cold. 3rd despite being cold the... More

When someone describes a property or airline as 'no frills' your expectations are low and when it comes to hotels, the sleep experience can be extremely compromised usually by street noise or poor quality beds. I'm delighted to sat that in the case of this property that initial fear did not come to pass. Check in is in effect a... More

The major pro of this place is the excellent location as it lies in the city center. Rooms are clean on the first glance but you should not take a closer look... Bathroom couldve been cleaner. We booked a room for three people but at arrival there were only two beds made. We tried to call the help desk from... More
