So Helka is by no means a fancy place, let's be honest, but it's convenient (right next to Kamppi shopping, near the buses and trams), clean, and good value. I stayed here for work and was very happy. Internet in the room, bike for rent, great breakfast (oatmeal, fresh fruit, bacon/eggs, cereal, fresh bread etc), and friendly staff. I also... More

We had a nice, quiet room on the second floor with windows to the backyard (partially a parking lot). The interior design was really interesting and enjoyable, bathroom and toiletries were very good. But: The lamps on the night stand were practically useless (if you want to read at night, get yourself a flashlight). And the closet looked cheap, the... More

I stayed here twice this month and cannot grumble at all. The rooms were very clean, comfortable and had air conditioning as soon as it was warm . The bathroom was a decent size as well. The hotel's location is perfect..about a 10 minute walk to the main Railway Station and a lot of the sights are easily walkable from... More

Nice little hotel at very good location in central Helsinki. Room was nice, big enough for two people and clean, and same goes for bathroom too. Location is great, just few minutes walk to Kamppi mall & bus terminal and less than 10 minutes to Helsinki railway station.

This hotel is simple, the room is clean and small, and during the summer they have air condition a huge plus for us coming from South America. The personnel are polite and well informed about what to do in the city. The location is quiet, still in walking distance from any point of interest in Helsinki (from the tourist point... More

First impressions of the hotel were very positive due to friendly and courteous staff. They even helped identify the best tourist spots on the free maps available in the lobby. My room was a single - it was clean, well kept, and well furnished. TV worked great, they was also a stocked mini-fridge. The bed was very comfortable, and there... More
