Helka hotel Helisnki is a very convenient place to stay and the entire staff are most helpful and obliguing. The attached restaurant serves simple but tasty meals .Convenient small bar near reception is ideal. The Finnish Sauna on roof level definately most appreciated. Reception staff arrange airport transfers. The place is clean, quiet, and economical. I would definately stay again.

Very good location, nice sized rooms, friendly staff, good breakfast and a very nice sauna. For Helsinki, it offers reasonably good value. Would recommend. Very easy to get to and from the airport cheaply as there is a bus that stops nearby which runs from very early until very late.

I booked this hotel through ebookers and paid around 62 pounds for a single room with breakfast, acceptable in such an expensive city. The walk from the rail station is 10-15 minutes tops, and the receptionist very helpful with maps and guides. The room was small but I expected it to be, bathroom was good with wet room and toiletries.... More

Undoubtedly the strongest point of the Helka Hotel is its proximity to the city centre, public transport and the city's attractions. The rooms are basic but clean, however also show the age of the decor. The Helka Hotel is certainly not cheap and for what it has to offer it is actually pricey with one extra bed for a child...

Helka is an old hotel which has renovated. Rooms are very modern and still cosy. Location is close Stockmann which is the biggest shop in Finland. The railway station is within a walking distance, and several good restaurants, too. Breakfast selection is plenty and it includes typical Finnish breakfast products. The restaurant of Helka, Helkan keittiö (kitchen of Helka) is... More

The staff were friendly and helpful and the rooms were clean and comfortable. There was secure parking available in a yard at the rear of the hotel. The shower was good, with some toiletries if you forget shower gel etc. The décor could do with a bit of updating, but refurbishment work was underway, so it would be good to... More

Keeping in mind that the hotel is located just close to the center and the price, it may represent enough reasons to choose this hotel. Being accommodate in a single room, the room was tiny I would say. But very clean and comfortable, nice Finnish design. The picture ceiling gave that well being feeling. The staff was also, very helpful... More

The hotel is close to the railway station and Kamppi shopping area. The rooms are scandinavian style and clean, the design is interesting (lots of Finnish nature). Breakfast is good and the staff helpful. It is slightly old, and you can see some wear and tear, but not much. The beds are good. For the price it's very good option.

I stayed for two nights and I liked the hotel. After a long day it felt good to unwind in the nicely designed and clean sauna. The breakfast was good except they put out small amounts of fish and when it was gone they didn't bring more for a long time. The bedroom ceiling was interesting, a photo of a... More

The rooms were very noisy. It was easy to hear speech from the other rooms. Breakfast was good. Very few parking place and also expensive. The location is good for shopping and to visit city centre. Still, I can not recommend the hotel.
