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.

For a few days in Helsinki we decided to stay over in this very nice hotel. The first impression was great! Pretty interior design in the hotel, fresh, clean rooms and friendly staff. The breakfast was very tasty and you had a lot to choose from. (You could even choose between dark roasted and light rosted coffee, sth. I really... More

I got a great rate at the Helka and stayed for two nights. I have mixed thoughts about this tourist-class hotel. Let me try to decipher them for you. Pros Free wifi throughout the hotel Free breakfast which I thought was very filling and with lots of options like meatballs! Alvar Aalto everything (Aalto is a Finnish designer. I love... More

We stayed at Helka for a weekend in Helsinki. We were in town for a wedding, which started quite early on Saturday, so it was great that we were able to check in already at 9am. The Premium room we got was on 3rd floor, faced the street, and it was very spacious, more so than several other hotels I've... More

It was a nice stay. Rooms were nice and clean but small, although the finnish design makes up to it, the furniture and lighting made a nice environment. There's a Sauna as well at the top floor, although I didn't have the time to go to it. It is close to city centrum and bus, metro and tram stops, plus... More

Friendly, helpful staff, nice comfortable rooms. It was a great experience all around. Convenient location and a great breakfast. I will certainly stay there again in the future. They added an extra bed for a child without extra cost.

Renovated basic hotel with great cheerful staff but rooms were small and noise from traffic/crowd made sleep difficult. Only stayed for one night and left early the next morning to the airport. Location does seem central.

My room for one was compact and very clean. Also the carped in the corridor was clean. There were no need to hotel-perfumes. The breakfast was tasty. The staff was very friendly and helpful. I had to made a call after my checkout, because I had forgotten my charger into my room. I received the charger home by post.
