I stayed here twice this month and cannot grumble at all. The rooms were very clean, comfortable and had air conditioning as soon as it was warm . The bathroom was a decent size as well. The hotel's location is perfect..about a 10 minute walk to the main Railway Station and a lot of the sights are easily walkable from... More

Nice little hotel at very good location in central Helsinki. Room was nice, big enough for two people and clean, and same goes for bathroom too. Location is great, just few minutes walk to Kamppi mall & bus terminal and less than 10 minutes to Helsinki railway station.

This hotel is simple, the room is clean and small, and during the summer they have air condition a huge plus for us coming from South America. The personnel are polite and well informed about what to do in the city. The location is quiet, still in walking distance from any point of interest in Helsinki (from the tourist point... More

First impressions of the hotel were very positive due to friendly and courteous staff. They even helped identify the best tourist spots on the free maps available in the lobby. My room was a single - it was clean, well kept, and well furnished. TV worked great, they was also a stocked mini-fridge. The bed was very comfortable, and there... More

We stayed 2 nights at the Helka in Helsinki. We stayed in a deluxe room on the second floor which had a balcony. The rooms are standard size and quiet. The bathroom is quite small. Services were efficient and the location fairly central.

We stayed at Helka Hotel for a couple of nights in July. The staff was very friendly and attentive. As we had an early flight on our checkout day, we got breakfast bags. The room was rather small but nicely furbished and clean, loved the ceiling picture. We never used public transportation, as everything is in walking distance.

We stayed here for four nights at the start of July. As the other reviews say, it is easy to walk from the hotel to the train station and centre of town. There is a guide book in the wardrobe which is very informative, well worth a look. Cool, modern furnishings in the room and it was cosy and quiet.... More
