Basic but great hotel. Has everything you'd need. It was very clean, the staff were very helpful and friendly. Close to bus stops, taxi ranks and tram stops which go directly into Helsinki. I'd definitely recommend staying here to explore the beautiful city.

This hotel was actually very nice for its price, and the staff was kind enough to even let me receive a package there a couple of days before I arrived. The only thing I didn't really like about the hotel was that the rooms were very hot and the only thing there was a (very) small fan to keep me... More

Basically, at the Ava hotel you get yourself a small apartment — a bedroom with a kitchenette, a bathroom with shower, and a small lobby. In this respect it is very similar to the Academica Hostel, which many of the travellers to Helsinki are familiar with. However, Ava is located farther to the North — while it takes more time...

Hotel looks a bit strange when you stand infront of building, as it looks like one of blocks with apartments nearby and not really a hotel, but this feeling is over as soon as you step into loby. People are nice, and everything is arranged in second. Rooms are pretty decent and clean, especially when considering their price. Wifi is... More

Simple hotel not far from city centre. Few minutes to tram to catch Pasila railway station and Hartwall Arena. Few minutes to bus stop to go to airport. Beds were comfort. Breakfast okay, 8 euros. Friendly service.

I stayed here with a group of about 60 friends attending a convention at an off site location. The room rate of 49 euros was not bad. The breakfast costs 8 euros and is okay but bacon or sausage would have been nice. The hotel is in a residential area away from town and was some distance from where our... More

This is a nice, clean, safe basic hotel a bit away from the city centre. Good tram connection to central Helsinki. Cooking facilities, gym, sauna. NB: Breakfast is not included in the price, you pay extra for that!

By Helsinki standards, a cheap and basic hotel. I liked the cooking facilities of the hotel, which I used a few times when I didn't feel like eating restaurant food. The management of the hotel should really consider adding another elevator or installing one with higher speed - it was a hassle at times waiting for the elevator, which would... More

I stayed there with friends, and we had 2 rooms and a kitchenette. Really saved a lot of money for each that way. It is a 10 minute walk from the tram that goes downtown too. Was clean inside the rooms, the hallways need updating.
