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

We stayed at the Helka on the recommendation of some Finnish family and found it a great place to stay. The location made for an easy walk to the train station, outdoor markets, downtown shopping and the waterfront. The room was clean, comfortable and pleasant. The traditional Finnish breakfast with its many options was provided daily. The staff at the... More

This hotel is in a convenient location for central Helsinki, it was easy to walk from here to the centre of town and it is not far from Kiasma (the modern art museum). My room was a bit on the small side, but fine for one person travelling alone. Breakfast was alright - nothing too exciting, but nothing terrrible either.... More

We got a free upgrade to a premium room. Room was fairly small but clean. Location is great and you can walk everywhere! Breakfast buffet was fantastic. Definitely a good place to stay for a city trip.

Stopped 3 nights. Single room a bit small but adequate and shower/toilet a bit cramped but did the job. Well placed with main streets and musuems within 5-15 min walk . Did not need to use public transport. Good breakfast with decent choice and restauant fine for evening meal. A big plus was coffee/tea making facilities in the room which... More
