“Very nice, excellent value.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 10, 2011

We are avid world travelers, including all of Scandinavia. We were very pleased and satisfied with our stay and the services provided. Some reviews here are rather old and we were lacking nothing as of today, including free wifi. The rate was very competitive and felt well worth it. The room had everything one could expect, comfortable bed, many international TV-channels, minibar, desk etc. The public areas are beautiful and the breakfast buffet excellent. The staff was educated and courteous, even though we could have used a few more advices about restaurants. The Hotel is located on a quit street in nice walking distance to all of downtown. We would recommend anyone to stay here. A.S, CT, USA

A nice hotel in the center of Helsinki. Beautiful interiour of the entrance hall and the lounge.
Very nice staff.
Rooms - very small for a family. We were two adults and two children (6 and 1,5) - the rooms were too small to fit an extra bed and a baby cot in one room, so we chose an extra bed only and took the baby into our bed.
Breakfast ok - buffet.
As we had a Finish friend who'd pick up us by car, I cannot estimate how far it was to a bus/tram stop.

Hotel Linna is well located hotel and great value. The Lobby is very nice - however, the rooms are a little dated. The bed is very comfortable - however, there is no thermostat - so quite warm. The staff are brilliant but no porters.

Only downside was that the sauna is only open for 1.5 hours per day during dinner time which is quite inconvenient.

Otherwise, great hotel which I would use again.

Wonderful library, friendly staff, eco-friendly attitude, tasty breakfasts, good location. I'd be happier, if there was a street, where free parking would have been allowed, but I realize, it's not the staff's or hotel owners' problem.

As others have written, this beautiful Jugendstil building is a wonderful home for a modern hotel. We were fortunate to stay in one of the few rooms in the old building, however from talking to other guests the modern rooms were also fine. Hotel is located in an interesting area for locals, with many trendy restaurants and shops nearby. It's about 10 minutes walk to the central area, but quite an interesting walk. There is a nice sauna facility (this is Finland after all, you have to try it!) but no workout room to my knowledge. Tip: borrow bicycles from the hotel, and take a spin around Helsinki. They will give you some suggested routes. As a city, it's a cycler's paradise
