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.

Finnair airport shuttle bus station just right in front of the hotel. Walking distance to city centre for all major shopping places and restaurants. There is a big supermarket nearby less than 5 minutes walk whereby you can get all your basic need such as mineral water, bakery for breakfast etc...

If you want a central city centre hotel in Helsinki that is near the main railway station, which has a good restaurant for both breakfast and an evening meal, that has good food and local beer, the hotel is clean, the rooms are nice, the staff very polite and helpful and is not too expensive (for a Nordic capital city)...

Holiday Inn City Centre is perfectly located for visit to Helsinki. Just next to the city train terminal, it is well connected to the airport by Finnair Shuttle (EURO 6.50 per trip ) which stops at its front and city bus No .615 (EURO 5 per trip) which stops on the other side of the train terminal. It is also... More

This hotel was in the perfect location, but that is as good as it got for us. There was not much wrong with this place. However, we felt the place was boring and uninspired and we felt we were paying more than we should. The place is well kept and clean. The staff are helpful as well.

The Hotel is perfectly located - just a few mintes from the city center. Cleanliness in the Hotel is brilliant, rooms are very comfortable and well equipped. Even though the Hotel is directly next to the rail and bus stations, rooms are really quiet. We did not meet a lot of staff indeed but during the check-in and check-out they... More
