Good location beside kampii district, about a ten minute walk from central station. Bedroom was nice but very small, I think this may be the norm for Helsinki hotels though. Breakfast was excellent with something to suit everyone's tastes, buffet style. Complimentary use of sauna was great after a day's touring. However the hot tub is not included which we... More

I had a very pleasant stay in this centrally-located hotel, which was easy to find and reach on foot from the railway station after having consulted a map. My own room was a bit small, but as I was only sleeping there it made no difference whatsoever to the enjoyment of my stay. The breakfast was excellent - substantial and... More

Close to the center, to shopping malls, restaurants and well communicated. Services are great and the staff are very helpful. Loved the room and the design of the hotel. Only the bathroom was not the most convenient one (sink was far too small and it was difficult to wash your face due to the shelf attached). Good curtains for the... More

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
