Hotel Arthur is located at just a couple of minutes walking distance from all Helsinki highlights. The hotel was built in 1907 and I have the impression very little maintenance has been done since. We were booked in a room with 2 single beds. The very friendly staff immediately gave us another, significantly bigger room. We really appreciated that. The... More

When we checked into the hotel, we were not sure what to expect. Upon arriving in our room, which was supposed to be one with a bit of "extra room" (though an online special at the time), we found there was little more than room for a bed, chair and a little furniture. It was clean. I went downstairs and... More

This hotel looks like hotel in Soviet Union. Very simple exterior. However you have free Internet access and good breakfast. Just a lot of paki, arabian and russian guests. So, if you need save money then this place for you, because of cheap enough and 10 minutes from main railway station of Helsinki. But you can pay 30EUR more and... More

Thank you for your feedback. Next time you should try our art deco rooms; even though the building is old these rooms are new and classic. We are also renovating the lobby and restaurant next year. But actually it is also very trendy to look like Soviet Union-style :-) Best regards Miisa Sales department More

The first impression of the hotel, looking at it from the outside, is insignificant or uninteresting. It doesn't look like a hotel. It looks more like an old and ugly office building (which it also partly is). The feeling of "where is this going?" continues when you enter the lobby. It's not very inviting with its bleak and spartan interior.... More

You can take local bus from Airport to Helsinki Central Station and then reach at Hotel 8 min. walk. This is my 2nd stay at this hotel mainly because of easy transportation from the Airport. Nearest Metro station is 5 min walk. Room size is European stand(not as big as North America)

Hotel is historic for sure : rooms last refurbished in the 70's by looks of things. Cheap and Nasty. Expect a clean and safe place to sleep, with good breakfast: nothing more and you will not be disappointed. Recommended for those on a budget and want to be close to everything, all others steer clear.

Thank you for your feedback. It is true that some of the rooms are old and always when you book online the cheapest standard rooms, they are the oldest ones.

When I had checked in and taken the elevator up to the 5th floor, I was reminded of some of the negative reviews I had read about Arthur Hotel. The winding hotel corridor showed clear signs of being in need of refurbishment. My single room, however, was in much better condition and turned out to be a double room so... More

Thank you for your comments. It is true that we are an old house; been here since 1907 :-) But our goal is to be reasonable rated basic accommodation in city centre with also some really fine new art deco-rooms. We welcome you to stay with us again! Best regards Miisa Sales department More

Hotel and service were OK. Breakfast was very good. The only negative matter was the shower space in the bathroom. The pipes near the floor to the heating battery were not covered and that´s why dirty. I recommend covering them with a rustless case.

The hotel is located close to the railway station and walking distance from the Baltic ferries provided you don't have too much luggage. Pretty good breakfast with hot and cold food. Buffet style. Rooms ok. Lift a little slow with self opening outside door.
