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

Taxis being expensive in Finland, you can save a lot of money if you are coming from the airport by taking the Finnair bus that stops right in front of this hotel (last stop at the railway station). The bus costs €6,30 and you can pay the driver even with a credit card. Another bus 615 from the airport costs... More

We stayed here en route to our final destination in Finland which required us to take another 2.5 hour train from Helsinki. Since we were travelling from Asia we thought it best to just stay the night in Helsinki then take the train the next day. The hotel is literally 200m (or less depending on which entrance you use) from... More

As other reviewers have said this is a very well located hotel. Next to both rail and bus stations. It's also clean, comfortable and well equipped. Room was quiet, staff helpful.Only suggestion would be that a less expensive breakfast option is offered if not part of package. But highly recommended.

Close to everything, 1 min walk from the railroad station. Very quiet and clean. Helpful and patient front desk. Central! Short minutes to walk to any sightseeing spots. We enjoyed it there – stayed only a couple of nights.

We stayed here to and from ferry trips in May. The location is very convenient for traveling by trams that stop in front of the train station and for the surrounding sights. We were upgraded due to platinum status and our executive room was very comfortable. We would definitely stay here again if we return to Helsinki.

We arrived on the bus from Helsinki Airport E6.30 single. The bus stops outside the hotel at the main railway station in the centre of the city. The hotel is well placed and has good transport links with the railway and buses. Walking distance to the tourist areas, shops and harbour. Our room on the 5th floor room 528 had... More
