It is perfect for family, but the entrance system was difficult. Apartment has two bedrooms. It is ok, but the doors are so heavy that everybody's awake after you want to go to another room. Rooms are nice. Also the gas system was anoying at night making noise time after time.

I am not picky with hotels which are a bit old and worn down, but this place was discusting! Not properly cleaned, discustingly dirty kitchenette, old chairs with incrediby dirty cover, smelly bathroom with sink that filled up.

I suggest to get the instructions for booking and access to the room in advance. Otherwise you risk to spend a few hours in negotiations with the reception (if you get through).Status of furniture is poor. Overall, a good place to spend the night.

Location is close to the center of Helsinki. perfeczt for people who want to plan and act independent from restaurants and dining hours. Appartments are equipped with all necesseties including pots and dishes. Nothing was really broken or damaged but some items show traces of use and should be replaced.

Based on the price of just about everything in Helsinki we decided that an apartment with a kitchen would be a good money saver. The room we stayed in had a separate living area, kitchen and bedroom and had loads of space for just the two of us. The private sauna was also well worth the extra pennies. Having stayed... More

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.
