The location is excellent. The train station is next to the hotel and so are the bus and metro stations. Three big malls/compartment stores are within walking distance. As well as museums. I think the hotel is great for short business trips but it would suit a shorter stay with friends and family as well because of the location. I... More

I've been here three times, once in 2007 and then twice this past summer, 2012. I generally recommend the hotel--it's very well-located, being right next to the main railway station and also the bus plaza (which has a stand for the Finnair airport bus). I've never had a problem with the buffet brekfast--in fact, it's lived up to my expectations--and... More

You can't beat it. We stayed here for four nights and were completely satisfied. Housekeeping is good, the staff is friendly and the rooms are decent. We were in room 401, on the far north side. They are doing construction directly north of the building and that was a little noisy, but the rooms really are pretty quiet considering all... More

The quality of the breakfast seems not to be the focul point of the operator of Holiday Inns in Finland. The choice of items in the breakfast buffet of this Helsinki City Centre H.I is less comprehensive than in many comparable Holiday Inns in Europe, Asia and North America. On another occastion I took up this trend with the front... More

Dear Maitland55. First of all, thank you very much for your recent stay. I'm deeply sorry we fell below your expectations about breakfast. Our Holiday Inn hotels are very proud of the level of service and quality of our products and for this reason your comments are very troubling and will certainly be looked into. Breakfast is very important product... More

Clean modern rooms, very comfortable beds. Free Internet. Reception staff are friendly and helpful. Only footsteps from the central train station and subway. The finnair airport bus stops right outside and departs regularly. Great base to explore the city

It was nice to be in the center of Helsinki, next to the main train station, really close where the bus from the airport leaves you and next to a supermarket (it's in the basement of the train station). You can go everywhere on foot, but if you need to take a bus, they are around there. The room was... More

This hotel are almost in the middle of the city centre and what's better is 1 min walk from railroad station, which was perfect when we should catch a early train. Very friendly staff. As à minus that we couldn't get an irish coffee from the bar as it closes at midnite, but there's à Chelsea sportsman around the corner.

The hotel is located in the heart of what we wanted to experience in Helsinki. Next door to train station and across from bus parking for transport to and from airport so very convenient. Excellent communication in making and confirming reservations from hotel itself, not home office. Pleasant and accommodating staff. Printer wasn't worker in business center but staff let... More

As a platinum member, having stayed in many, many Holiday Inns, this was by far the best. The room was immaculate and well thought out, the restaurant was wonderful and the staff extremely helpful. Wireless was free, breakfast also free as a platinum member (and what a good breakfast it was). This hotel is right next to the railway and... More

A smart midprice hotel with comfortable rooms, in a warm Scandinavian style, and courteous service. The ultra convenient location, right next to the central train and bus station, is its selling point. But also its weakness: if you are a light sleeper, you might be bothered by the low noise that penetrates the hotel's otherwise effective insulation. The breakfast service... More
