We were visiting Helsinki last weekend and stayed at Presidentti. Location is excellent in the hearth of the city. Parking on site was available. You don,t need car to move around. Just walk out of the door and there you are, shopping center Kamppi natural historic museum, church of Temppeliaukio, everything is minutes away.. Our room had two large beds... More

Our room was well big enough and the bed comfortable. The usual, TV, wardrobe, can't remember if there was an iron and board. Info on where to go,etc. bathroom big enough, corner shower but big enough. The room wasn't plush but you don't spend much time in them, on holiday. Maybe it's just the summer months but we queued for... More

Was here on business. The front desk staff are friendly. This hotel is a little dated and it needs a internal face-lift. Internet is slowish. The rooms are nothing to write home about, but my room was spacious enough and had the basic requirements with a view to the streets. Request a room with a view to the streets. Was... More

Breakfast is plentiful but with no variety Rooms are small and the bathroom will remind you of what's available on a boat where space is limited Service in the restaurant and bar will make you feel that you're not really welcome The best part - its location is perfect to get something to eat and drink elsewhere, so enjoy the...

Having read several negative reviews, I was a little worried. But the truth is, we were able to stay comfortably. The wall seems a little thin, so that noises from neighbor rooms reached ours sometime. Electric kettle can be borrowed at reception in 5 euro.

Had 3 nights here for a last minute break. Nice central location within walking distance of the railway station. Room comfortable enough although everything in the hotel looks a bit tired. No way to use the stairs to get downstairs and waited ages for a lift some mornings. Noisy neighbours on the Friday night playing loud music until very late.... More

the hotel is outdated, breakfast is standard yet plentiful, the rooms are very old-fashioned, and the bathroom had a bathtub front panel falling off. Water in the lobby is close to 3 euros, so go to the subway station complex around the corner and find a small supermarket "Alepo" (a chain) for humanely priced water and juice. Or even better,...

This is a big conference hotel just next to the city centre in Helsinki. Valking distance to both the train station, bus station and shopping. The staff is friendly and helpful. Checking in and out was fast. There is a nice restaurants in the hotel and the food was quite tasteful and the staff, once again, friedly and helpful. I... More

Used to be my favourite hotel in Helsinki due to its central location and good breakfast, but not any more. Recently cleaning of room has been sloppy and only carried out late in the afternoon, very inconvenient if you've been out all day and want to relax a little in your room. During my last - literally! - stay at... More

I always stay here when I am in Helsinki. The staff are friendly and extremely helpful, the WiFi works, the breakfast is good. What more could anyone want? OK, it might be showing its age in places, but this gives it character. If you want soulless, go to the Holiday Inn 200 yards away and pay double for less (no... More
