“Weekend in Helsinki”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 15, 2013

Enjoyed a long weekend relaxing with a friend at Hilton Helsinki (not the Hilton airport hotel). Fantastic location - very peaceful and great for walks/jogging. Catch bus 615 to city centre and tram No.4 if you want to avoid expensive taxi - takes around one hour from airport. Hotel is located at top of the hill just after last tram stop (Saunalahdentie). Breakfast was very good. Dinner restaurant menu more limited. Swimming pool is small and so can get easily crowded and is only available early morning and evening. Swim in sea invigorating!

I stayed here for two nights with work. While not a bad hotel it is nothing more than average. The location is good, but the food and service wasn't hugely impressive, usually had to ask twice for tea/coffee and for the menu. Good for business but I would't stay for pleasure.

We visit family in Helsinki regularly and have stayed in a number of hotels including the Kamp, Torni, and our old favourite the no longer operating Palace on the harbour front. We have seen the sights in the city centre and spent plenty in the design shops and thought it was now time to venture further afield. We checked out the Tripadvisor reviews and booked a room in the Seaside Wing of the Hilton Helsinki Kalastjatorppa.

The result was great views from the room, ideal location on the lakeside, lovely views from the (expensive) restaurant above our room and on this occasion the novelty of the Finnish football team who were staying there ahead of their World Cup football match. We ate well, slept well and used the hotels bikes to cycle around the islands nearby. One thing that fascinated me was the tunnels between the buildings like those from some Cold War spy lair which I suppose this might have been, very cool.

Room Tip: Get one in the Seaside Wing

I was in Helsinki for a business trip in early September and had the pleasure of staying at this Hilton. I had a room in the Seaside Wing overlooking the beach. The hotel is very clean with nice spacious modern rooms. Internet access was stable and quick. I had Reindeer Steak at the restaurant and it was delicious. Service was wonderful and the staff very friendly. The location is great, I was able to walk a few minutes to the 4T tram and take a ride into downtown for just 2.80 Euros. The beach is wonderful, very clean and serene. The hotel also has a number of bicycles available for guests to use (although I did not personally use one). It was my first time in Helsinki and I really enjoyed it, the Hilton was a big part of making this trip wonderful.

This hotel per say is good or above average... The staff are very courteous and pleasant. Breakfast buffet is good, but repetitive... Can work on having a menu which rotates....
Rooms are clean , well kept and maintained. The equipments provided work fine and are easy and good to use.. I stayed at the 7th floor in a room facing the sea (persay) ... At best I was able to see was some water between the heavy woods... If you like trees and nature you did love it... But if its sea you looking for then its a deal breaker... Rooms do have balcony, which is a plus, if you want to enjoy a quiet evening tea over a book or interesting conversation... The property is set between a residential locality and hence quiet... P.S. Indoneasians its close to your ambassador's house or official residence. I am yet to try out the fitness and swimming pool.. probably will update later...

I took my wife with me on a business trip to Helsinki. I had visited previously but it was her first stay. The Hilton was the perfect choice! The staff couldn't have been more welcoming and the property itself an the view were fantastic. We had access to the lounge and the selection and staff were great.

On a recent trip to Helsinki, we treated ourselves to a night at a hotel. We love the surroundings of the Kalastajantorppa hotel - you get a taste of the beautiful Finnish nature and seaside while the heart of the city is just a 10-minute tram ride away.

The hotel has a nice sauna and access to a private beach. There's an indoor pool, too. We made use of the excellent bicycles which you can use free of charge. We rented standup paddleboards at the beach hut, only to find out that the hotel also has SUP boards at the guests' disposal. It would have been great if the front desk staff had told us this when checking in.

The only minor negative point is that the hotel charges you for wifi in rooms. Why allow free wifi only at reception? It's just plain annoying.

Room Tip: Ask for a seaside room for a magnificent view
