We stayed at the AVA Hotel for one night in January 2015. We chose the hotel because it is situated in a place near where our daughter lives. There was free parking on the back yard. The hotel was nice and clean.

Good location near bus and tram station,nice rooms with kitchen corner, little small bathroom. Only few minutes with tram to Hartwall arena and city center.Price is ok, when you travel for 1-2 nights, it is good choise.

I will never suggest to live in this hotel as hotel staff is not friendly.. Also,as per money it is not worth,you can utilize same money for other hotel and can avail good hospitality and service. At the same rate of 90Euro i booked Radisson Seaside which was pleasing to me on business trip.

This was a rather nice hostel room charged at standard hotel rates (£80 per night). If it was half that price, I would agree with the other reviews that it was lovely. As it stands, the bathroom was poorly cleaned, no shampoo was provided, the temperature couldn't be controlled, and the WiFi painfully slow. Those aren't tolerable at £80 per... More

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.
