The hotel is less than fifteen minutes walk from the main railway station and clean, with friendly staff. Breakfast satisfying in terms of quantity, less in terms of quality (which means that ham tastes the same as cheese; terrible scrambled eggs). Free wi-fi. Hair-dryer and coffee-making facilities available in the rooms. One extra middle-size towell would be appreciated. Otherwise, the... More

Stayed in Hotelli Helka on my first and last night in Helsinki. My first stay was a great experience. The room on the 5th floor was top-notch - clean, comfortable and with a nice ambience provided by the backlit prints of natural scenes just below the ceiling. Another typically elegant, Finnish design was the ice-block light by the bed. Ok,... More

my colleague and I spent 2 nights in this comfortable hotel, conveniently located in Helsinki centre, at walking distance from the railway station. We arrived quite late on our first evening so we were glad that the restaurant served very nice food. The decor is modern and original. The rooms are not spacious but the beds are comfortable and the... More

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
