“Great hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 10, 2014

We are a family with a dog and they proposed us one of the two top floor rooms with perfectly decent price. The room was even better than I thought as it had also a balcony, small kitchenette and lovely bathroom with very nice shampoos and all the little things you (may) need. The room was nicely decorated, modern but charming. The bed was very large and comfortable. They had even brought cups for the dog which was a really nice touch.
The breakfast was continental style and you could ask anything you like on top. And open until 11 AM, which for us is a huge plus. Restaurant is also stylishly decorated with a nice quiet patio on the back. Location is excellent as not far from anywhere but in a quiet street. They rent bicycles too. Shops in proximity (Alko next door). All in all, great place to stay. Indeed the staff is very friendly and helpful.

Room Tip: The top floor rooms are bit more spacious than the others and have balcony. Of course also bit more...

Stayed for 7 nights July 28th to August 4th. Loved this hotel, the staff were amazing and the included breakfasts had something for everyone. Location was perfect, close to the centre of the city but in a quiet part of town. Very safe to walk around on my own as a single female. Comfort room was large and beautifully decorated. Would highly recommend this hotel and would stay here again. All of the staff were very friendly and knowledgable and genuinely looked pleased to see you when you entered the lobby.

The stay in the Fabian hotel was a big success. It has 58 rooms, is clean, cozy and nicely decorated. Breakfast is fresh and some of the good is organic (bio). What made our stay exceptional and comfortable wax the staff: very friendly and always very helpful with arrangements in the city such as planning a trip, giving advise how to get to the specific places. You really get the feeling of being their guests. The hotel is not a luxury one ( is not intended to be) but all services meet the highest standards of a four star place. When in Helsinki, we will certainly come back there and recommend the Fabian our friends.

Really great location we could walk everywhere really easily!
The rooms are very comfortable and spacious with everything you need and the air conditioning was lovely as we visited when Finland was at its hottest ever !
Staff are very friendly and helpful and provide maps and lots of local information, the locals map for the area was very useful and we found all the restaurants they recommended really good especially the chinese Nanking!
All in all a great stay in Helsinki would definitely recommend and not too expensive !
Happy Holidays

The Fabian is one of the two best hotels that I've stayed in during my 20 years of traveling here and abroad (Hotel 1000 in Seattle being the other one). Here's why: the staff! The Fabian is a beautiful, modern and stylish hotel with a delicious buffet breakfast, but what puts it far above the rest is the warm, friendly, and professional people at the front desk who are helpful in every regard. I was touring Helsinki with my 80 year old mother and greatly appreciated all the support, guidance and excellent advice given to us by many of the staff. Each day when we returned to the hotel from our adventures, we were greeted with warmth and interest and offered a drink or coffee to be enjoyed in the lounge. We had a wonderful trip and credit most of our great finds to the terrific Fabian Hotel! Thanks again!!

We stayed at the Fabian hotel during a one day layover on route from Toronto to Moscow.

Helsinki is a beautiful, clean and safe city. It was a real pleasure walking the streets and exploring. Everyone was friendly and inviting, and the main esplanade area in downtown Helsinki was beautiful.

The Fabian is located within walking distance of the pier and main downtown square which is covered with great restaurants, bars and stores. It is in a quiet street close enough to walk to wherever you need but not so close that it is overcrowded or loud. It is a great location.

The hotel is very clean, and has a fantastic individual flair that you don't typically find in large chain hotels. The bed was comfortable and everything in the room was not only functional but stylish in its own awesome Finnish way :)

Breakfast was included and I must say this was one of the best included breakfasts we've ever had at a hotel. Everything was so fresh and clean. There was a surprising variety of options and food was continuously being refreshed throughout the breakfast hours by the hotel staff.

I will definitely stay at the Fabian again when travelling to Helsinki, and would recommend it to anyone.
