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.

When I had a 15 hour stopover in Helsinki I chose Hotel Ava. Like others have said, it is not in the city centre, however, the tram stop is a 3 minute walk and they come every 10-15 minutes and take you to where ever you want to go in Helsinki. The room are very basic but clean. The beds... More

we stayed there for one night in July 2013. The room was basic but comfortable and clean. The location isn't the best and the corridors look tacky. The staff was not the most polite that i have found. Though the hotel is good if you don't want to spend too much.

The room was clean, basic and comfortable. The size including the bathroom was not great but cosy enough for a good night sleep. We didn't get too much exposure from the service but the check in and check out was without a hassle. The location is the only thing that gives the hotel an average rating. It is not centrally...

Good rooms, a Little small but with a good Kitchen. Prices are good for Helsinki. Clean rooms. Location is a Little outside the city but there is a tram close by. Sauna just like everywhere else in the City. Not the best neighbourhood. But good Parking
