4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 10, 2011

Pleasant, clean and modern hotel in a great location. Metro stop right outside the door, plus trams and buses. Ideal for Helsinki sight-seeing. Breakfast offers a wide choice, served until 10.30 weekdays, 11.00 am weekends. Staff are pleasant and helpful. Male and female communal saunas available during the day. Small and basic "smoking room." (Rooms throughout hotel are non-smoking.)
No tea/coffee making facilities in room, which we missed. Perhaps this is common in Finnish hotels?
Not luxurious but we got a very good rate through Travel Republic and were very pleased. We would stay there again.
Lovely park with lake just around the corner.
We enjoyed Zetor Finnish restaurant, near the Central Railway Station.
Be aware, if you aren't already, that Finland is lovely but very expensive.

Room Tip: Back to avoid noise, but front view much better

This is one of the newer hotels in Helsinki where (fully flexible) hotel rates tend to be above 150 EUR/night from Sunday to Thursday when business folks seem to pay whatever they charge (as "Finland is expensive"). If you believe the latter and you even think you'd get a value for so much money you'll most likely be disappointed: most hotel rooms in Finland are quite simple ("nordic simplycity"), small and usually no kingsize beds but 2 small ones....

The Hakaniemi Cumulus is no big difference but a good deal if you catch a prepaid rate round 50-70 EUR/night (e.g. yeego, otel etc.). The Airport bus (NOT the Finnair bus!!) stops in front of the house, you've Metro station as well and the opposite market place is one of the hiddenn gems of Helsinki (during the workingdays incl. Saturday!).

There is one Sauna for men, one for women! Breakfast is Finnish standard (ham and cheese sticked together like glued, dark bread and good coffee)

Just go for this place if you conside above before!

Room Tip: all rooms are new, no old rooms at all!

Stayed in mid January for 3 nights. Great location! Arriving from the airport is a piece of cake, the regular bus 615 just outside the terminal stops right in front of the hotel door, and the Metro station is also only a few steps away too. And there's a great Market hall right in front of the hotel too. City Center is only about 10 minute walk away.
The rooms were clean and comfortable, and the breakfast was excellent. The personnel were very friendly, and like just about everybody else in Finland, spoke excellent English.
The hotel has been totally rebuilt in April 2010 and everything was very fresh. Recommend the sauna's too, just make sure you take your towels from your room with you.
Would definitely recommend this one, and will stay again when coming to Helsinki.

I had a 2 night stay at this hotel at the end of November. The room I was given was huge and very comfortable, clean and bright. The bathroom was very nice with under floor heating. The reception staff were very friendly. The breakfast was ok, just the basics you would want at breakfast time. The hotel was reasonably priced and I would definately recommend it.

I enjoyed my stay at the Cumulus Hakaniemi. The staff was very friendly, aside from one heinous young lady. She was young with dark hair and big, dark glasses. She was very, very rude, and I made all attempts to avoid her while she was working the front desk. Hopefully when I return to Helsinki she will not be there. And if she is - I will stay at the Cumulus Helsinki! The hotel itself was very nice and clean. The breakfast buffet was nice as well with some standard Finnish staples.
