I stayed at this hotel, last Aug 1-3, 2014. Room was not nice, considering I am an IHG member. There's no carpet in the room. And smell in the corridor in unpleasant. But the location is nice, central station and bus station especially Finnair bus is just infront of the hotel. Taxi not needed, you can take the Finnair bus... More

As many reviews have stated this hotel could not be better located. It is adjacent to the railway station with the city bus transfer point in front, including the stop for the Finnair airport bus. The tram is less than a block away, and there is a metro station there. It is within walking distance of most sites in central... More

Despite the many positive reports I found this hotel disappointing in many respects. I am a gold elite IHG member and chose this hotel out of loyalty to the Holiday Inn brand. Yes, the location is excellent. It is only a one minute walk from the airport to city Finnair bus. It is central with a supermarket nearby and easy... More

Not the prettiest part of town but there is easy access from the hotel to the main railway station, the Finnair airport bus and city trams. The hotel provides the level of comfort expected of a Holiday Inn, large room, good beds and bathroom. Helpful staff. From here it is an easy walk to the market square (Kauppatori) on the... More

Great stay at this hotel, very handy for all the sights in Helsinki and next to the Finnair airport bus stop. We stayed during a heatwave and the rooms despite air con were a little warm. We were upgraded to executive room which was lovely-lots of wood! Great shower/bathroom and very clean.

It is near by the bus and train station. There is a mall and small markets near by. Room are quite good, breakfast is good for every culture. Located near the downtown, there are many restaurant and bars around. Recommended !
