Not usually one to stay in chain hotels, I was a bit reluctant when I left the booking of the hotel to my friend who came back to me with a Crowne Plaza. However, I was fairly pleasantly surprised. Having done some research myself, I was unable to find any hotels (let alone my preference of boutique-style hotels) anywhere near the same price range and it's difficult to understand why it is relatively so cheap. Admittedly it's not right in the city centre however it's literally a 5 minute tram journey (or 20 min walk) into town (the trams are very frequent too - there are three different trams and the longest we waited was for 5 minutes and that was on a Sunday). The hotel itself is fairly standard with all of the usual things you'd expect in a Crowne Plaza - gym, sauna, pool, room service, etc etc. However I must say that the one stand out was the exceptionally comfortable beds - don't think I've ever slept in a hotel bed as comfortable. Hotel staff were a little clueless on dinner options although when we decided upon somewhere they were very happy to book for us over the phone. So all in all I would recommend as a good option for staying in Helsinki - good location, comfortable bed and good value for money.
