Amazing place in the middle of the city. Super nice service and great breakfast! It's not a super fancy, sterile business class hotel, but with lots of charm and reasonable sized rooms. We stayed there for an extended weekend and enjoyed our trip to Helsinki very much. The location is just amazing: just a few minutes walk from the central... More

I stayed in a single room, quite small but I didnæt spend too much time in room so it was ok. The working area was fine. The bathroom was very small, had to crouch myself to sit on the toilet and I am not a big person. The bed was a bit too hard for me but adjusted after two... More

I arrived 11pm on Saturday at the hotel, having made a reservation for a single room 3 weeks in advance at the great price of €44.80. The reservation was confirmed by an email called "Reservation confirmation" in the title and saying "Welcome to happy Hotel Helka!". I was excited given the good reviews. Upon check in, the receptionist said that... More

We were staying in one of the Helka suites with a sauna. Highly recommended! Quite big sauna. Very good beds. Slept very well during my visit. Everythin i needed was close by, within walking distance (coffee, wine&dine, transportation)

My mom and I stayed here for 3 nights. We had a twin-bedded room that was clean and quiet. Pillows were high but bed was firm enough. The bathroom was stone cold as there wasn't any floor heating as expected of Scandinavian hotels. The shower cabinet was poorly installed and water leaked through the door opening as well as under.... More

Good Scandanavian design rooms. Really quiet and centrally located. Breakfast OK but not so many options. Personal was really friendly and in and out went really smooth. Rooms rather small but who needs really big rooms in a a big city....

Hotel Helka has just been renovated and looks nice and trendy, and the welcome at the lobby was surprisingly friendly. Single room was small but had an air con, which is not something taken for granted in Finnish middle range hotels. The location is excellent near the Kamppi shopping centre. I found my room from ebookers at just 56€, which... More

An hotel of OK quality, rooms are nice, but the hotel is old and cleaning could definitely be improved although it is not horrible. Staff is friendly and location is good, breakfast buffet is not bad.

We stayed in one of the suites and were very impressed with the room. It was spacious, clean, comfortable and very well decorated. We stayed with our almost 1 yo baby and it was so helpful to have a door between the bedroom area and the living area, so we could put the baby down for the night and continue... More

Good quality hotel in the middle of Helsinki. Brilliant service, speedy wifi, awesome Nordic breakfast, amazing location to explore the city. An extra treat for those who appreciate Finnish design, as this hotel is just that; Finnish design products used everywhere in the decoration from the lobby to the rooms. You can even buy a fake snowball at the reception... More
