Beware of using the lobby phone to check in if the reception is closed, it can be that you will have to wait endlessly. It is better to call the other number given at once, that is what we did after 20 minutes of waiting for an answer in the lobby phone ..... Besides, it was a very nice room... More

I had the studio Pent House apartment with a huge balcony with views over beautiful rooftops of old Helsinki! The apt was towards the court yard very quiet and private. Katajanokka, the old part of Helsinki, has beautiful architecture and history and 15 min away from the market square hustle and busy streets. No nightlife neighborhood . I enjoyed my... More

Stayed in Helsinki for a week at Hellsten Helsinki Senate and loved it. A few minutes walk to the market square and the city centre. Great option if you want your own space instead of staying in a hotel. We had a one bedroom apartment and there was everything you need, including a sauna and a laundry which you could... More

My wife and I rented an apartment here for a week in August, saving ourselves a couple of hundred euros over a typical mid range B&B hotel. We read the previous reviews and now having experienced it firsthand can understand some of the negative comments made by a few, but overall we think this is a very good, and good... More

Fantastic location, 10 minutes walk to market square, 20 minutes to the city. Close to trams and buses, cycle shop and supermarket around the corner. Friendly staff and great value for money for a neat studio apartment.

set in a quiet area, but very close to the harbor and the city center, this aparment hotel offers great facilities. We had a living room, a sleeping room with bath/shower, and the entrance area with kitchen and wardrobe etc. All very functional (some limitations for the kitchen), clean, and well maintaned. This setting made our days in Helsinki a... More

After staying here three times before we chose this apart hotel again because of it's simplicity and location. I'm afraid since it's been taken over it's gone downhill rapidly. It's now very dirty and I'm sorry to say it's definitely no longer a place I'd feel comfortable that my wife and children stay in. My wife and children were given... More

We loved our small apartment, which was pet-friendly and allowed us to live independently. There is a small grocery store and coffee shop nearby, and you are within walking distance of the Market Square and the other city center attractions. Highly recommended!

A really nice weekend in Helsinki with a most priceworthy room in great location. Nice that you care for yourself, The rooms are a bit worn down and we could smell the neigbours smoking on there balcony. But this is minor issues
