Dear reader. I have traveled EXTENSIVLY in Europe and stayed in more hotels than most people have had thoughts in their head. You will not find a place like this so soon again(!). The price is good, you have private cooking facilities(with fridge, with coffee machine), the rooms are fine, high up, en-suite. The bed is perfect. Free Sauna, free... More

It felt like a great find: cheap, convenient location, 'character'. We didn't expect fancy. And communication via email went very smoothly. But while the room technically was non-smoking the hall just outside reeked of stale smoke. The ceiling paint in our room was peeling. The mattresses were almost negligible. And please don't partake of their breakfast. Food was left out... More

The main attraction of this place is its price: the rate is about half of that in most other hotels in Helsinki. For 50 euros, I had a large room including a small kitchen with a coffee maker, fridge and stove. The place looks rather run-down and the kitchen was not very clean, but the room was comfortable and the... More

I've enjoyed stays at this hotel twice. I admit it's not for everyone, but it is a decent hotel. It's an old sailor's and mariner hotel about 2 minutes walk from the ferry dock for the ferries to Estonia, Aland and Sweden. It is not in central in Helsinki, but Helsinki is not as big a city as you might... More

Hotel administrator, a really nice and helpful man, saved us and our pets from spending the night in the car (in the October). Room was very quiet, clean and with a nice view outside the window. Location was exelent, just below the Tallin-Helsinki ferry port. We will return there for sure.

A group of 4 retirees we stayed at Hotel Skatta for 3 nights in May 2007. The neighbourhood is clean with well maintained streets, and older buildings. The Hotel is no oil painting on the outside, and 'no frills' on the inside but rooms were quiet, clean, well equipped for self catering and the staff were always friendly and helpful.... More

This hotel is a gem. For all of its charms, Helsinki does not abound in bargains, and Hotel Skatta is remarkably good value for money. It is in a lovely old neighborhood, right on the harbor; a tram runs there directly from the train station. The decor is a little Spartan, but everything is spotlessly clean and in absolutely flawless... More
