We stayed at the hotel for 2 nights in June 2010 during a 2 day visit to Helsinki. It is very nice hotel located about 15 min walk from the main tourist area and 2 streets away from the tram. Overall we found everything up to expectation, good choice at breakfast, very helpful staff, free internet and nice room. We would stay there again.

We walked from the ferry port to the hotel and used the airport shuttle service which was good.

In addition to being a charming hotel, the attention showed us by the Hotel Linna's guest relations manager was the best I've ever received in many, many years of traveling. We used Helsinki as a base for visits to Tallinn (Estonia), Stockholm, St. Petersburg and nearby spots in Finland, and returned to the Hotel Linna between trips. Each time Aino Pohjola and her staff made us feel as if we were returning home. She wrote notes of greeting, gave us small gifts and answered so many questions about the Suomi (Finnish) language, about the culture, about Suomi (Finland) in general.

The great reviews sited here on tripadvisor do justice to this little gem. Very friendly staff. Lovely (albeit small) rooms with all the 'different finishing touches' one hopes for on a visit to Helsinki. Even essential oil optiions available :) Sauna great. Location quiet but close enough not to be too much of a walk

The hotel is in a charming old building. The hotel premise is very clean and well decorated. The rooms are comfortable, clean, and spacious. The sauna is very well maintained. The staff cleans it everyday before and after each session - it is not opened 24 hours tho' - for women 6-8 pm, and for men: either the 2 hour before or after, I don't remember.

I read some reviews complaining about the location of the hotel, which I disagree. The hotel is not right in the city center, but it is only a short walk away (15 minutes). It is actually in a quiet area, which is much nicer than in the city center. From the main station, the #6 tram takes you to 1 block from the hotel in 5 minutes. The tram network is very well-connected in Helsinki and very easy to use. The walk from the hotel to the market square is about 20 minutes, and is a very pleasant walk with fine boutiques, restaurants, and pastry stores :d

Also, there is a supermarket around the corner from the hotel.

A group of 15 education professionals stayed here for 4 nights. The hotel staff were very helpful in sorting out local transport, restaurants, etc. Its location is only 12 mins walk from the main shopping streets and city centre bars, and it worked very well as a location for our visit to Helsinki.

I never write reviews on here, but I pretty much have to leave one after the great visit my wife and I had to Helsinki this past weekend. Great hotel. The staff is what made it -- they are all very friendly, helpful, knowledgeable, etc. Nice facilities as well: Very comfortable beds, great shower, quiet room, nice library with comfortable chairs and sofas, free computer/Internet and printer, coffee and cookies, more. Excellent umbrellas to borrow, free slippers, nice breakfast and no rush. Lots of free newspapers. Great location. Grocery store across the street. Multiple restaurants, bars, shops, etc. Enjoy!
