This was our second Cumulus Hotel stay. The price was excellent. Our friends had a coupon so was very reasonable. Beds and bathroom clean. No air conditioning but there was a small fan which was sufficient. We could board a tram right outside the front door. The elevator is very quirky - a very large metal door that you opened... More

Dear Naj Thank you for your stay. Thank you also for this feedback. I have to say that you are not the only one to mention our peculiar elevators... some of our guest adore them, some don't. I am happy to inform that they will be re-built in the end of this year. Sincerely Petteri Vitikainen General Manager More

Cumulus Kallio is in a perfect position to explore Helsinki at a decent price. Tram lines on the doorstep plus shops, bars and restaurants within walking distance. Everything was clean, staff were friendly and so helpful, breakfast was delicious with a great choice. Sauna was available for 2 hours each evening which was a bit limiting, 5 - 7pm for... More

Very basic hotel with basic services. It is in the need of renovation all over, but if you don't much more than place to sleep this hotel could be for you. Breakfast is mid level in Finland standards. Personnel is quite polite. Receptionist did not tell anything extra so please ask you need information. Location is excellent if you need... More

This was our second time in this hotel. Price/quality rate is just fine. It is not far from the city center and it is easy to get a parking place nearby, although you must pay for it. The breakfast includes everything we needed.

I stayed at that hotel for business. The rooms was very cold (I stayed under the blanket most of the time). There was no air conditioning, no heaters, just some very big old radiators that were not working and could not be regulated. I found a lot of dust from shelves, bedsite tables, under the beds (dust rolls flew out,... More

The hotel is situated in the former working class district Kallio. In front of it huge ice court, in winter time you can skate there. After skating good use has the hotel sauna. If you became dehydrated during sauna you can find bars in surroundings with appropriate drinks, but be prepared the alcohol is very expensive in Finland. Helsinki tourist... More

Breakfast was good. Service at bar was good. The interior was old and uncomfortable. The hotel really needs a facelift for this price, bathroom really sad...shower so small you van not even change your mind in there.

I stayed for three nights. It is a long walk to centre of Helsinki and the hotel is not in the nicest part of the city. Room was clean, although not very big. Bathroom was rather small. Breakfast was fair but not as good a selection of food as many hotels I have stayed in. It was quiet provided that... More

The hotel is located about 20 min walking from the city center, about 30 min driving from the airport. Rooms are big enough for two persons. We were in room that had an extra bed and the bed was smaller (shorter) than ordinary beds so it was pretty inconvenient to sleep on it. Hotel offers breakfast which consists of (very... More
