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! Right next to the main train and bus station in Helsinki, this hotel makes a great base for a visit. And given I only had two days, the location meant it was easy on the chilly... More

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.

Literally in the middle of the city centre. The place is good and clean, nothing overly special, but it does the job. Staff are friendly, and there is free wifi! Overall there's no reason not to stay there really :)

The hotel is located right in city center, next to train and subway. Lots of eating places within walking distance. Rooms are clean and comfortable, though not big. Service staffs are polite. Great place to stay

...but at the end of the day it's a ubiquitous Holiday Inn. Great to get the Finnair bus to the city and back again as its only about half an hour and then bus stop is about 100 metres away from the hotel across the bus station. It's also in the city centre so another plus point.

Location location location! Just a few steps to the terminal of finair citybus. Very close to all sightseeing spots in Helsinki. Good rate, clean and tidy. Fast check in and out. When you ask them to keep your lugguage, they simply show you to the luggage room. You store and get them back by yourself. Free wifi.

Check in was very efficient and the staff were extremely helpful and friendly. I got upgraded to an executive room which had a massive bathroom and great view of the train station below. The restaurant’s food is amazing but take note that the food service is only during certain times. Getting to/from Vantaa Airport is easy as the Finnair bus... More
