The hotel is located in a renovated old building within a walking distance from the main railway station and not far away to other Helsinki's attractions: the cathedral, town square and Opera House. Both public areas and the rooms make a very good impression in terms of the quality and faciliites. Wireless Internet and car parking are available free of charge.
Beds were comfortable and despite having a room facing the street there was no noticeble noise. The choice of products for breakfast was quite OK.
I would definitely recommend Helka for all travellers seeking good value for a decent price.
