Arrived rather late and was jetting out of HEL to TYO the next day. Great catch up with a friend in bar, late dinner. Nothing out of this world, location ok'ish bearing in mind we were walking with wheelie bag rather fast paced due to the drizzle... Room functional. Warm welcome. Great bar and food was ok, too.

Having read a few reviews, I was slightly apprehensive, but all my doubts proved to be totally unfounded. Admittedly the lift was bit outdated and the corridors shabby, but the superior room was spacious, well equipped as well as perfectly clean. The price was good considering that it was a busy time in the city, and every other hotel was... More

The hotel was nice, clean and close to many things (trams, food places and parks). The staff were friendly and willing to help, which was great. Unfortunately the negative things are more the others guests than the hotel itself. My floor (5th) always smelled of smoke in the morning and in the evening. I'm pretty sure it was a non... More

I stayed in the hotel on on with a group of colleagues. The check-in was fast, location is between city center and Pasila region. Room was a bit small, but clean and with a nice bed. Trams were an issue for the first night only, and I've got used to them quickly. Wifi was poor sometimes, but not really awfull.... More

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

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
