The Arthur is an older hotel suitable for budget-minded travelers. This doesn't mean it's cheap -- just that it's cheap for Helsinki! It is well located in central Helsinki and in walking distance of the waterfront, railway station, and all the major attractions. There is free wi-fi throughout the hotel, and a computer and printer are available in the lobby for a charge of 3 euros per half hour -- handy for printing out airline boarding passes, etc. Oddly, there is also a freezer in the lobby with (not very good) ice cream for sale.
The rooms are comfortable and clean but basic. Mine had what might have been a mini-bar but it was locked and my key wouldn't open it. There is a TV with limited standard programming, but you can get BBC and Euro News. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom was clean and adequate. The included breakfast was good, with a hearty selection of items. The hotel won't win any prizes for style or refinement, but it is a very good choice for a basic, pleasant place to stay in Helsinki.
