Spent two nights in this hotel. Rooms are big enough, nice shower, good beds (bit hard). Breakfast buffet with lots to choose. Coffee could be better though. Very friendly staff. Next to train station and bus stops. Quiet hotel.

The hotel couldn't be better located, only some 50 meters from the central station. Other then the great location, most things were adequate as would be expected in a business hotel in the Nordics. The lobby bar was suitable for working as it was not very busy. This was a common occurance according to staff. Slight problem with the shower... More

I stayed at this hotel during the first week in April. The location couldn't be any better. My room was on the 4th floor and had a nice view of the train station plaza and the bus terminal in front of it. I enjoyed watching the activity and also the view of the street on the front with the trams... More

I'm an American doing business in Finland and this was my first trip to Finland. I found the Holiday Inn City Centre to be the perfect hotel for me. Not only was it extremely clean and quiet, but also affordable and near everything in town! I was amazed at how quiet my room was every evening when I returned. Not... More

As this was my first visit to Helsinki I wanted to stay in a central location, so I chose the Holiday Inn Helsinki City Centre. It was a great choice. This Finnair shuttle bus from Helsinki AIrport terminates right next to the hotel and it was a very short 100m walk in the wintery weather to the front door of... More

It was booked by my hosts and I was a bit scared whwn I saw that it was by a railway station. But it was totally quiet. The hotel is really close to the center. Friendly staff, good internet facility. I also emphasize the breakfast that provide not only the ususal food but also the local specialities.

We went at the start of the easter holidays including good Friday. When we first arrived we were very pleased with the location and the room. It was clean and functional. As we arrived at half midnight, food options were limited. Nothing was open nearby and there was no room service available. The only food they had was down in... More

Perfect location next to the central railway station. The Finnair airport bus and local city buses stop in front of the hotel and everywhere a tourist would visit is within a 20 minute walk of the hotel . The area was quite and felt safe with lots of shopping, cafes and restaurants a few minutes walk away. Rooms are comfortable... More
