City Tourism Tax ?

Can anyone tell us about a city tourism tax in Helsinki? I have heard that this is based on the hotel rating, per person, per day. Any ideas are appreciated

Where do people 'hear' all these things? :-o

All your charges are visible in Finnish hotel bills when you check out, and I have never seen a "tourist tax" when I have stayed in a hotel in Helsinki. Anyway, if such a charge existed the hotels would have to include it in their advertised room rates.

No need to worry about it, the Helsinki hotels are expensive enough without any such extras.

Some European countries do have a tourist tax, including e.g. Italy, France and Spain. Finnish hotel rates have no hidden extras.
