“nice little hotel at the wrong time of the year”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 8, 2013

the hotel is very simple and the roooms are tiny - I visited during the heat 30 degree and it was unbearable. The hotel is lacking an aircon and sleep was impossible for 2 straight nights. In winter it might be an bargain but in this hot tempreture (which is seldom the case in Helsinki ) it was almost Torture. Choose the right time of the year !

Loved the hotel, had good service- which was not common anywhere else in Helsinki. Loved our room. Top floor and although no a/c the fan they had in the room sufficed. Breakfast was perfect with plenty of choices.

Location was ok. A few choices of restaurants nearby. But otherwise you need to cab to most places. Public transportation is hard to figure out.

My parents always stay here when they come to visit. It's clean, well located and the people are friendly and efficient. There's a spacious corner room which has a nice view over the street and a playground. Short walk to good public transport connections and some very nice restaurants and bars.

Tiny room, tiny bathroom, somewhat short bed, excellent internet connection, good value breakfast. Stairs impossible to avoid. Friendly and helpful staff. near Design Museum. Some 300 m from tram stop (10) and cca 1 km to railway station.

This hotel is a good option if you want a budget alternative when visiting Helsinki.The location is on walking distance from the city centre and there is a tram station almost around the block. Very friendly and helpful receptionists, perfectly OK breakfast offer with enough alternatives, basic rooms with surpricingly comfortable bed matresses (many times it is the other way around: fancy rooms but beds hard to sleep in). Free wireless internet.
Good value for money!

Dear "Inake",
Thank you for the nice words and informative review. We are glad to hear that you got a good sleep in our comfortable beds and the receptionist are thrilled when they get nice feedback on their performance. Hopefully other travellers will note that too. Looking forward to see you next time when you come to Helsinki.
Kind regards

Great location in the Helsinki's design district, with easy access to various tram lines and within walking distance of the main bus and train stations.
The rooms are on the small side, but clean and reasonably comfortable. There will be some traffic noise from rooms on the street side of the building - the courtyard rooms are much quieter.
The breakfast is great - lots of choices hot and cold, as well as coffee and juices.
The wi-fi was spotty, but otherwise the Anna seemed like a great choice for a stay in central Helsinki.

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the courtyard will be quieter. The standard singles are quite small, but the high...

1 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2012

I stayed in Helsinki for 2 nights or a business trip. I slept in a single room which cost 100 euros per night. The room was rediculously small. The was a single bed pretty small inside and a tiny bathroom. Definately not what I needed! Especially if u consider the price.

The breakfast was average, nothing special. The positive thing was the nespresso machine in the breakfast area.

Overall a bad experience, definately do not recommend it!
