“Perfect location,perfect price”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 5, 2013

Here with family for 6 happy nights. All amenities provided.
You can ask for more bed(s) in room. Wifi free on ground floor in restaurants and good public seating areas. Concierge one of the best out of 100's I have known. He made sure my iPad was wrapped and fedexed to the US. Perfect job.
1 block from market square with hub for all bus and trolley lines. Do not have to change to either railroad station.
Not the most modern, very 70's, but perfect example of that architecture. All glass right on water.
Breakfast was complete buffet and we were not chased out if late. Great for the price.

Room Tip: All rooms are amazingly quiet. Never any street noise.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 24, 2013

We have stayed at this hotel 7 times on our trips to Helsinki; the location is perfect, particularly in the coldest month of February when the waterways freeze, affording great views of the ice-fishermen in the mornings, and the chance to walk across the ice to atmospheric Kruununhakka, or towards the railway station. Also, good to be close to Hakaniemi square for both trams and metro, and the wonderful Kauppahalli (my favourite in the city).
The bed was very comfortable, and there is plenty of room in the bedroom space, but the hotel is in serious need of a refit (which we understand is planned): our bathroom had several cracked fittings, and the screws for the old hairdryer were still in the tiles beside the new one. The minibar fridge had a tendency to 'clank' in the night.
Breakfast remains good (although the coffee on our first morning was only lukewarm - things improved during our stay): crockery no longer interesting iittala bowls, though (too expensive to replace, perhaps).

Room Tip: Rooms overlooking the water give the best views, most interesting in the winter.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for taking the time to write a review about your stay!

I am very happy to hear that you have stayed with us so many times and enjoyed your stays. The location is indeed good for a variety of acitivities, and it is great to hear that you have been able to do so many of them. I am sorry, however, for the inconvenience caused by the minibar and I can only hope that it did not put you out too much.

Thank you for chosing our hotel to stay in while in Helsinki and we look forward to welcoming you again!

Kind regards,

Good price and good location. Sauna is separate for males and females. Take care of naked person in the sauna:) It is common Finnish behavior. Private sauna is also available by reservation. Room is big enough.

Good location, great service and reliable service quality. If you need a hotel in Hakaniemi this is the nicest option. Great breakfast, nice sauna and pool area and a quite large room by Helsinki hotel standards.

This hotel is consistently excellent and I stay there whenever I am in Helsinki.

Room Tip: Ask for sea view room, the view in the mornings is beautiful of you are on this side of the hotel. I...

I have stayed in this Hilton two times. Its buffett breakfast includes delicious and good selection. Sauna and swimming pool are nice good condition. Location is close metro and much more central than another Hilton hotels in the city. Generally, I think the hotel is good choice for business purposes. If you will get a discount around or less than 100 euros per night, it is superb choice also for leisure travellers.

I was a little taken aback by some comments about the age of the hotel but decided to stay anyway and that was a good decision. The hotel is actually in very good shape, I had a large room with sea view which was beautiful. I don't know Helsinki well but I also liked the location which I found convenient. The hotel is super clean and the staff lovely. The breakfast buffet was excellent as well as snacks and hors d'oeuvres served in the executive room in the evening. Price was very reasonable.

This hotel has a nice location but its a good 15-20 minute walk from the downtown area. It was built towards the end of the 80's and it shows. No re-modelling has been done so U do get the 80s feel.
Staff was nice. Internet is fast and 10EUR.
Breakfast was good.
All in all its a good hotel but badly needs some redesign
