3 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Room was clean and functional, but not luxurious. Had minibar and kettle, but no safe in room. Shower instead of a bath. Free wi-fi throughout hotel with good connection. Hotel is in a good location, central but quiet. Staff were friendly and helpful.

4* evaluations can be short, would definitely be a 5* evaluation if well equipped for disabled people. Pros: modern Scandinavian design, very friendly staff, well-equipped room with plenty assecories, decent breakfast, great wifi, close to Kamppi station (therefore easy reachable by train and airport bus - about a 700m walk from the Finnair terminal). Besides the disability-issue there is not... More

We spent a couple of nights here in Spring and it was perfect for us. It was very close to the Rock Cathedral and the centre of town. The transport system is only a short walk away. The staff were also very helpful. Excellent room with plenty of space.

I loved this hotel, it was close to the Bus and Train depot, the post office was easy to find. The rooms were clean and comfortable and the breakfast was wonderful. I wish I could have extended my stay. I just want to go back.

I enjoyed my two nights at Helka Hotel. The hotel is centrally located just 15 minutes walk from the Helsinki Railway Station and Finnair City Bus and 5 minutes walk from Kamppi Metro and Kamppi Center. Excellent breakfast buffet with different kinds of fresh bread, a nice variety of fruits and vegetables as well as the traditional non-veg. Nature lovers... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in March 2015. Conveniently located 10 minutes walk from the railway station and close to a number of museums and places of interest. Very comfortable rooms, friendly helpful staff and excellent buffet breakfast. Also used the sauna which is free for guests and open between 7.00am and 10pm. Would be very happy to stay here...

Located near the City Center. The room was small, the bath room was even smaller. But the price was low, the room was quiet and the bed ok. Medium size breakfast buffet in the morning, and there was also a bar for those hours you won't leave the hotel anymore but also won't just watch TV. I was pleased.

Very helpful and friendly staff. Room was very clean but small which was not a big deal. Fantastic price point and location is not far from the train station. Hotel bar is well appointed and the bar staff top notch. No gym but a lovely sauna that is free to use. Includes breakfast which is a nice added feature. I'll... More

We really enjoyed our stay in this hotel. Great service and free WIFI, which also worked really well. We truly liked the feedback channel, where we could send messages to the customer service really easy over WIFI.
