We stayed at the Holiday Inn for one night as we had to catch the train to St Petersburg the next day. The staff were very polite and accommodation and spoke perfect English. We thought that he rooms would be quite simple, and had chosen the hotel for its proximity to the railway station, but were pleasantly surprised. The room... More

I would recommend Holiday Inn City Center to anyone visiting Helsinki. Easy access to trains, trams, and buses, and of course within walking distance of many sites and restaurants. I was pleasantly surprised at the quality and size of our executive room and its appointments. My only complaints? Getting a surprise extra fee for the chair bed (served the way... More

Business hotel just next to the central station and the bus-stop. Airport express bus stops just outside the hotel. Ok breakfast and lunch - not the most efficient queuing for food - so you need some time for your meal. Rooms and service ok. A bit expensive, but since our office is just next door it is hard to match...

This hotel is perfect for a stay in Helsinki. It is right in the heart of the city, next to the train and bus station. It is very quiet and value for money. Breakfast isn't included but there are so many places to eat which are cheaper than paying for the breakfast at the hotel. Rooms are clean and spacious.... More

There was some fumbling and rumbling with my reservation at first, but then I got upgrade to an executive room and all was fine. These rooms are spacious and nice, even though in my room the floor in the hall was slippery after shower. I was quite happy with this stay.

Selected this hotel for its price and location and I certainly didn't regret my decision. The Finnair bus to and from Vantaa airport stops right outside the hotel which is perfect for those travellers who might not yet be too familiar with Finland. The central train station is also right next door which is good for those of you who... More

If you are travelling by train or train and plane both, consider this hotel. It is just 1 minute walk from Helsinki Central Railway station, and from bus station - it is all on the same square. A bus between this square and Vantaa airport is only 6.30 Euros. I stayed there for 6 hours stay at night, a stop... More

I'd never been to Helsinki before and was flying in late so wanted to stay at the easiest location possible. Well, this was it!

Location of the hotel is great! In the middl of the City centre and next to the central station. I was here for business so I do not need a lot, but overal a great experience. Ordered a drink at the bar and the price was surprisingly expensive, but that's more related to the country I was visiting.
