“Good business hotel in business location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 21, 2013

Nice hotel. Reasonable price. It is 20 minutes on tram from town centre, but great for business district. Very nice bar and restaurant, but like everything here, its expensive. Rooms are specious and staff are very helpful and friendly. If you are spending £100 for a hostel in the centre, then try this..

Nice rooms, very good breakfast for reasonable price (91 euro for single big bed room) . Staff is very friendly and helpful.
But there is no good restaurant within reasonable distance (1km).
Recommend for business trips.

Nicely appointed business hotel near the main railway station in Helsinki, good if you are catching an early train somewhere. Room was pleasant and clean as expected. Didn't have breakfast. Only problem I had was finding electrical receptacles which weren't switched off when all the lights were otherwise off.

This not an exceptional hotel, but it is worth noting befause it is directly connected to the Helsinki Convention Centre (Messukeskus). I try to stay here during every book fair and other event where I'm working. Simply the possibility to walk to you stall in comfy indoor shoes, the easy access to your room during breaks and the savings in time and effort are worth the price. The breakfast is also pretty good and substantial enough to help you through the first part of the day. (The same kitchen is responsible for the meals for convention workers, and the quality if pretty okay.)

This is a nice, comfortable hotel with good sized rooms and good facilities. It is not in the centre so you need to use a taxi or public transport to get around, but well located for the Hartwall Arena.

This hotel is a very good choice if you are coming specifically for the conference center. It has a direct tramway or train connection with the city center and all the facilities are quite good. A side from that there is nothing around the hotel, not a single place to eat or to do something.

The Terra Nova restaurant doesn't seem like much but they serve excellent food!

However, if you are coming on holidays, then the Holiday Inn in the city center is more convenient and close to all the major attractions, shopping area and the harbor.
