“Great hotel!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 7, 2013 via mobile

Though slightly away from the centre, this is truly great hotel. Staff were friendly and helpful, breakfast was varied and filling and the room we had was a nice size. The hotel is also relatively small, which makes it a bit more of a personable experience. Helsinki is small, so everything is walkable and we enjoyed having a longer stroll back to the hotel. I would highly recommend it and would definitely stay here again if we were to visit Helsinki again.

Good breakfast, clean and sharp looking rooms. Fast internet. Great hot shower. Well located in downtown Helsinki. This hotel exceeded my expectations. Staff was quite professional. A very clean room with modern look and feel.

Surely there are cheaper ways to stay in Helsinki, but this cute hotel has its own atmosphere with a very design oriented look and feel. Its not one of these dark design hotels where you hardly find your way. Every room has its specialty. The service is very welcoming and I strongly recommend the very home made breakfast, really a good start into the day.

Some of the rooms are barrier-free for wheelchair usage, I had one of those but I did not really recognized it until somebody was talking about the same installations in his room.

The hotel is close to the water/ ferries and also to the old city center, so you can enjoy seeing different things close by.

We arrived late in the afternoon and were a little wary after our experience in Stockholm. We need not have worried as the room was spacious and the bathroom the same. It is the little things that make a hotel; the welcome at the desk, having space and pegs for the jackets and coats that are necessary for the climate, a comfortable bed, proper doona, a good size shower and a good breakfast (included for us at least). Hotel Fabian has it all. Although a little out of the centre of the city, it was only a 5 minute walk to the Etelaesplanadi, where many of the tourist activities are located. I have seen it rated as number 1 in Helsinki and can see how that ranking might have been achieved based on our experience. They also facilitated our late night departure providing luggage storage and somewhere to change our clothes for the trip home to Melbourne (Finnair of course).

Arriving at Fabian's is just great! The small reception and the really cosy ambient are just perfect! The super polite and super professional receptionist makes the arrival even more comfortable.
Rooms are clean, nice design and with all comfort! Definitively my choice during my next travel in Helsinki.

This was an awesome hotel!!!!! I arrived early but no problem my room was already ready! Got checked in and was off to explore. The hotel is only a few minutes walk to the water, many cathedrals, parks, and the main shopping area. Very convenient! The room was very spacious!! Really a large area. Had space for comfy chairs and a huge bed! It was also very clean and sleek looking. The breakfast buffet is pretty good. Not a lot of hot options but still good. Free wifi and maybe about 20 minutes ride to the airport!! Great stay!!
