Stayed in this hotel about 3 times, always for business purposes. Central position, walking distance from the main spots. Reception very fast and friendly. Rooms are not very big (some actually quite small), but very clean and midern style. Simple but excellent breakfast. My favourite in Helsinki

Top hotel. Centrally located (5-10 min walking from main train station where all the buses from the airport depart/finish route), couple of minutes from some attractions and shopping areas. Superb staff, friendly and helpful. Room was great, good space and distribution, smart decoration, toilet and shower very nice. All very clean and tidy. Saunas are on the top floor, separate...

Easy access from Metro Station. Tiny single room (width is very small) but good clean condition. Ironing room is available was a god send as my blouse for conference was badly creased in the case. Full marks for that, thanks!

Two of my friends and I stayed here for about 10 days in September. It was a very good place to stay in and very accessible to the railway station. The only shortcoming was that the electrical outlet for plugging in the coffee machine was almost at floor level which was rather inconvenient. We have suggested to the person at... More

Dear RBHPotsdamNY, Thank you so much for this kind review. Feedback is always important for us, and I agree, our electrical outlets are not the most user-friendly to use coffee machine. Next time there will be an extension cord in your room. We are proud to have staff like Anu here in Helka and I will certainly tell greetings to... More

This is a Top Choice hotel for a reason. The staff is very helpful and patient... important when the airlines has lost your luggage for four days. The breakfast is varied, fresh and tastes great. The lounge was filled with friendly travellers ready to share and listen to stories. Finally, the Metro is three blocks away and the Central Train... More

The hotel is in the city centre on a quiet street. The room and hotel was very clean and tidy and staff were very friendley and helpful. The breakfast provides you with lots of choices so there is a choice for everyone.

It was my first trip to Helsinki and I have to say Helka Hotel made it a great trip. Very helpful and friendly staff, great location, excellent service and interesting decor! The room that I stayed might be small but it is still very comfortable. Highly recommended.

I decided to stay at the hotel Helka mainly because of the good reviews the hotel had received from its previous guests on Tripadvisor. Unfortunately I can only rate my stay with „avearge”, although the hotel really has a potential. If this hotel to any extent is being promoted as designish, then it is not acceptable that they are not... More

Dear guest, Thank you for taking the time to write your review. You are absolutely right, there should not be any broken bedside lamps in the room. We are going to be replacing all the Ice block lamps during the next months. Usually we get very good feedback about cleaning, but this time, for one reason or another, the cleaning... More
