...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

It's right next to main train station of Helsinki. The Finnair bus station that goes to airport is right in front of the hotel. It takes about 25 minutes to airport. You can pay the fare to the bus driver as you get on the bus. It's right in the middle of Helsinki within walking distance. The room is modern,... More

After my flight from Atlanta to Finland, I was able to spend the day in Helsinki before travelling to Tampere. I stayed at the Holiday Inn because the corporate travel agent recommended it. I didn't know what to expect with this well-known chain in a foreign country but I'm happy to report that the property was clean and well organized... More

The hotel has a very nice location right outside the bus station and 50 meters to the train station. City center and shops, restaurants and clubs just around the corner. Regardless that the hotel is right outside the bus station it’s quiet and you hardly can hear the traffic and sounds from buses, very well! The room was very nice... More

It was very cold in the room in September, you can neither regulate the temperature of the air flow nor switch off the condition system completely. They brought an electric heater to the room on my request, but it was still very cold because of the conditioning that was still flowing down cold air directly to the bed. Also in... More

Good and quite new hotel. Very central location next to railway station and i.e. taxi station at front door as well as direct bus service to/from airport. Basic double-rooms are comfortable, clean and quiet. Good breakfast, but not as versatile as at Scandic's (which is on my opinion main competitor in Helsinki). Small gym available.

Why comfort : Location was very central, there are bus terminal (not noisy at all), supermarkets, shops, restaurants, tram stops. Breakfast buffet spread and dining room with floor to ceiling windows were satisfactory. Room was very clean, bed comfy, toilet with bathtub. However, since it's a modern minimalist hotel, we'd better bring our own bubble bathing soap or favorite shampoo... More

Picked this hotel because the airport bus stops here and from that point of view was ideal. Also centrally located to most of Helsinki's attractions, including restaurants, cafes and shops. Nice, spacious room and good service at reception.
