Stayed here in July 2015 on a short stay in Helsinki. We arrived really early (10am) after getting the ferry in however the hotel was happy for us to leave our bags and actually let us check into our room as it was ready. The hotel is wonderfully located for the city centre and is within easy walking distance of... More

This is not a hotel, this is a guesthouse. The standards for hotels in Europe have fallen underground. This hotel would barely be classified as an inn anywhere else in the world. And in an inn you would have a chance to find some toothpaste and a bottle of complimentary water in the room. The room is small and depressing.... More

Great gem hidden away just a bit. Easy walk to all downtown Helsinki. Friendly staff. Any time you combine location, reasonable, clean, and quiet is always a winner in my opinion. Will stay here next time I'm downtown Helsinki.

We, a U.S. couple, stayed at this very nice hotel on May 19,2015. The hotel is very conveniently located right off the Grand Esplanade (the center of all walking tours). Our room was spacious,the hotel staff was very helpful, the gratis breakfast plentiful, and the tariff was very reasonable. In short, a good place to stay.

Hotel Rivoli Jardin provides the perfect location, above average breakfast selection, clean and comfortable rooms, and an attentive staff. Special thanks to Tapio for his kindness and Merja for her efficient help.

We stayed at the Rivoli Jardin for one autumn night to begin a two-week whirlwind Scandinavia tour. Small, clean little rooms. I opened the bathroom door to be suddenly surrounded by lingonberry-scented bath items--just in case you wanted to smell entirely of lingonberries--which I found ridiculously charming. The shower was a bit tiny and hard to maneuver around in: though... More

Great location off esplanade. Good breakfast. Nice staff. Only issue is nightclub that is very close (& very loud.). The hotel otherwise was very quiet. I arrived early & they were very accommodating, offering coffee & cookies while I waited.

This is a nice little hotel with an excellent staff and great breakfast spread (included with room). The price is right, especially given the location and the hospitality. It is in a great location, situated just a few blocks south of the esplenade. Be prepared for small rooms that might have a few minor design flaws (the door on our... More

Expectations quite high based on the previous reviews but got a stenchy double on the third floor with old carpeting, no phone to contact the reception and constant construction/ air conditioning humming going on. Had to walk downstairs to complain and good that I did since got a very nice, white and refurbished double on the sixth floor. BUT the... More
