Great location is not enough to compensate for the shortcomings of this hotel/apartment. Location and queitness are the only pluses. On the minus side: - dirty fabric on the chairs and arm chairs - a collection of furniture in the living room that makes it look more like a garage sale, as the two arm chairs do not match style...

Searching for a place/home to stay for about a week I came across Hellsten Helsinki Senate. Located in the quiet area Katajanokka with a supermarket and a tramline nearby it was the perfect place. With a fully equiped kitchen (microwave, electric kettle, 2 -pit stove and a refrigerater) it was easy to make dinner/breakfast/etc. There is an elevator, so no... More

I arrived for a one night business stay, and got a street level apartment where the pavement was basically in the room. It was right out side the windows, and to have a little privacy, curtains needed to be closed at all times. The room was really worn out, needed renovation and paint job badly. Nothing good to say, sorry.

They have excellent and well priced apartments. They apartments are very spacious and quiet. All the furnishings are well kept. My only gripe is the lack of an oven in the kitchen. The location is an easy tram ride into the city or 10 minutes by foot.

I booked this in a panic after Citykoti cancelled my booking without warning because I was unexpectedly and unavoidably delayed arriving and had been unable to notify them of this delay in time. I had thought it would be in the city centre but it was quite a long way out, near the harbour, with no information provided as to... More

The room was huge with a comfy bed and included a sauna, still the price was cheap. No breakfast, but you can fix your own and keep some snacks in the fridge or head to tram and go to center for some. Hotel is located in a quiet street 1 km from the center. If you arrive with a car,... More

Stayed here for a work visit. Got an upgrade to a large room, which was nice and had good views of the dock area of Helsinki. In general the apartment was nice and well kitted out, but there were a couple of areas where it could have been improved. First, there were some weird and unpleasant smells in the entrance... More

Furniture is modest, you... More

Stayed there with my spouse for the weekend. We had a studio room in the old part of the hotel, which I liked a lot. The location is excellent, the neighbourhood consists of great art nouveau buildings, short walking distance to the market place and to the centre. Quiet surroundings, no noise from the street. Good quality for a human... More
