Big centrally located hotel in Helsinki. Rooms of varying sizes, all a bit old and in need of upgrading, but moderately priced, so all in all ok. Breakfast ok, wifi working well, so if you are looking for a hotel not very expensive, I will not hesitate to recommend it.

Thank you for your feedback. Nice to hear that you were satisfied with us. it is true that we are a very old hotel, been here since 1907 :-) We are renovating the oldest rooms little by little. Wishing you a very nice summer! Best regards Miisa Sales department More

Our short stay at Hotel Arthur was great. The room was very good, spacious, clean and everything worked! The location is good for easy walk to the city and to the train station. It would be nice to have some pastries or croissants at breakfast and also make the scrambled eggs from real eggs, but otherwise a good selection at... More

Me and my daughter stayed at Arthur Hotel three nights in the beginning of June. Our room was very tiny. It was also shabby and looked like a cheap hostel room. The bathroom was minimal and had no room for storing things. The entire hotel - but especially the rooms - would definitely need to be refreshed! The location of... More

Thank you very much for your feedback. Sorry to hear that you were not satisfied with your room. It is true that rooms are not very big and we are an old hotel. However we also have larger superior rooms and also brand new Art deco- rooms. We are redecorating the oldest rooms one by one. Wishing you a nice... More

we stayed one night on a stopover, very large room with twin beds, two armchairs, couch, desk, good bathroom. Very well located, ten minutes wandering walk to Senate square and the cathedral, about five minutes from there to Market square and waterfront. Staff were helpful and welcoming, plenty of maps, tourist info in reception. The taxi they called for us... More

Great hotel! Lovely reception staff who were very friendly and helpful. My room was clean and simple and the bathroom was spotless. Breakfast was included in the price but was one of the best I've had. The hotel is in a great location and has a nice overall atmosphere. Will definitely stay here again.

We stayed at the Hotel Arthur in May 2015 as a group bus music tour. Did not make the booking ourselves. It is a "grand old hotel" that has several distinct parts: the "old" part above the reception, and the "new" part which may be the former YMCA building. Overall we gave it a 4 Location great, close to downtown,... More

If you don't want to spend too much money to stay at a hotel in the city center and you do not expect too much comfort, this might be a good choice in Helsinki. It is not a luxury hotel, however the rooms are clean and the staff is friendly and helpful.

This old establishment is located next to YMCA on a quiet dead-end street downtown Helsinki next to the railway station. Furniture and color choices bring back memories from 1950's. However, this place is not a trendy retro, this is the real thing. Plain and simple rooms look like a college dorm. However, everything is meticulously cleaned and well organized. The... More

Stayed at the Arthur for two nights midweek in late May and it was perfectly adequate. The main selling point for this hotel is the location, about a three minute walk from the central station, so very convenient for bus arrivals from the airport. The building isn't the most modern, but for the price paid this was no problem at... More
