“Hotel with a good view”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 5, 2013

Stayed here for 3N3D and it was great. The rooms are clean with good bed. The staff are friendly which makes you feel great!

1 flaw would be the wifi service. Wifi was pretty bad in the rooms but good at the lobby and seaside!?

You can go to the city taking Tram No.4 or 4T which will is very easy and convenient. Breakfast selection are nice and more choices.

I stayed at this hotel for 2 nights only and had a fantastic stay.
We got a twin room and the bed was super comfy, so we had fantastic nights sleep.
Breakfasts was always a feast on all the usual continental spreads a hotel can offer.
The pool and spa area was nice to relax in, but the only shame is the horrendous spa facility times 6am-10am and then between 5pm and 10pm. Between which it is closed! (Must be strange finish law as the other Hilton Strand has the same spa opening times. )
The pool overlooks a picturesque sea views and if you dare you can go swimming in it.

Transport to the city is very straight forward, which is a 5min walk to the tram stop then 20min tram ride into the city.

Other than that the hotel staff were very friendly. Location was nice and quiet.

If you are a on a bit of budget & time schedule, the Hilton Strand is better, because you can everything is walking distance from there. Even the bus stop for the airport just a 10min walk away. Whereas this hotel is slightly further from the airport and a EUR40 cab ride from the airport. Public transport will take too long to get to this hotel.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your kind feedback about your stay!

It is a pleasure to hear that you enjoyed your visit with us. The beds were actually changed last autumn and they have been made specially for Hilton to ensure comfort and good sleep quality so we are glad this was achieved.Thank you also for the comments about the pool and sauna, the pool area is in fact open all day from morning to evening during the summer to accommodate for the requests we have had from our guests.

We appreciate you chosing our hotel for your stay and hope your travels will bring you back again!

Kind regards,

Daniela Öhman

Situated by the sea with a private beach. Enjoy the sauna with direct beach access and jump in the sea. Relax on the terrace and look around. You would not believe you are in Helsinki. You feel like on a terrace of a mökki by a lake. Nice to swim in the pool and the sea. Beautiful walks across small islands will let you find hidden beaches. A perfect place in Helsinki for some relaxing days. City is a tram ride away - or a walk by the sea. Take a room with a balcony and enjoy the sunset. This is not a hotel to only sleep in but to enjoy its location and surroundings. Spend a weekend here and experience Finland in a nutshell. Beds are comfortable. Breakfast is very good. The staff is very friendly. Children will like the location at the beach. The only thing I dislike: internet is 10 Eur a day.

A beautiful seaside hotel in Helsinki. The rooms are well kept and service in the hotel is excellent. The breakfast is the best in town! Also the seaside restaurant is very good. It takes about 20 minutes by tram to get to the centrum. By taxi 15 min, the cost ca. 25 euros. I have stayed several time, and the hotel has never been a dissappointment. I can highly recommend.

The hotel is comfortable and clean. It has good views from some of the rooms. Rooms a little tired. Food is pricey, but that is across Finland anyway. Shower good and hot. Bed comfortable. We had executive access and lounge was small but ok, except one night when they forgot to set up and we had to ask at reception for the drinks and nibbles. Staff not especially friendly but efficient most of the time. Its a good base to wander around from.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing the water otherwise you look at brick walls.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for your review about your stay!

From your review I gather that you have perhaps stayed at our sister hotel, Hilton Helsinki Strand. We appreciate your comments and I would like to offer my apologise for the oversight with regards to the snacks at the Executive Lounge. Friendliness and helpfulness is of course something we expect from our staff and your comments have been forwarded to the head of the department for review.

Thank you for staying with us and we do hope you will be back when visiting Helsinki!

Kidn regards,

Hi, I had yet another great stay at Hilton Kalastajantorppa for a business trip. The service was very friendly but the best part of the hotel in summer weather is the nice terrace for having a dinner and drinks in the evening. The location is also excellent for running as you can get great scenery in the islands of Helsinki nearby the hotel.

Room Tip: take the sea side room, the view is excellent
