“Excellent budget hotel in central Helsinki”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 3, 2013

I stayed here for 10 nights in July 2012, partly for work and also a few extra days to explore Helsinki. The location is perfect, I walked almost everywhere when out sightseeing although I did have to get the tram to the Messukeskus in Pasila for the conference, this was not a problem as the tram stop was nearby and the trams run often and are quite quick. The hotel is clean and tidy, with friendly staff. I was very impressed with it and feel that it was good value for money.

Location of this hotel is in an old building opposite Stockmann shopping centre, near the central bus station. Walk from bus station took 10 mins on cobblestone streets and up a slope before reaching the old building. The hotel is on 5/6th floor.

The hotel is stylish and renovated. The room is very small and facing the streets. People dined till past midnight (long days) and the noise still did not cease. There is no air-con in the room so we had to open the windows to allow ventilation. But this meant the noise can be heard in the room. Boy these people just won't stop talking!

Though the room is small, we managed to squeeze some space for luggage by pushing the 2 single beds to one side. However, what is short is made up by the decor of the room, nice toilet and lighting. It's basic but cozy. The warm shower was good for our tired bodies.

A big supermarket in Stockmann is useful. We walked to the nearby attractions and harbour front.

There is free wi-fi in the room but it's slow and spotty. The network dropped sometimes.

The man at the reception was not very friendly. Just did the job by issuing the key and the necessary paperwork.

Other than these, the room for 89 euros for a night was good enough for us.

Room Tip: Ask for a room facing away from the street as it's noisy.

That's a good hotel to stay for a couple of nights in! Good location in a very centre of Helsinlki = in 5 min from railway station and airport shuttle bus stop and just in 1 min from Stockmann shopping center. Lots of nice restaurants and cosy cafes around! My room (502) was small, but clean and stylish! Good choice for a reasonable price!

I really liked Hotel Finn. Great location (close to train station and tourist sites), my room was comfortable with a very modern, bright design and the price was very affordable. I would have preferred if the reception was open 24 hours per day for security reasons (I'm traveling solo), but I knew this in advance and still decided to stay. I did in fact, always feel secure too (very thick doors).

My wife and me started our honeymoon tour in this hotel. It is located not far from the central train station, no need to take any transport. Although we arrived at midnight, the administrator was at the workplace and we checked-in with no problems.
The room was small but yet cozy, comfortable and clean. It was also very calm during our stay. There's no shower cabin (the drain is right in the floor) but the floor itself is heated so shower flip-flops are not necessary.
There's no cafe inside the hotel but there are many of them around. There's also a supermarket nearby. Hot water was available at the reception.
We has to check out early in the morning so we just left the key cards with a small note at the reception desk.

To sum up, Hotelli Finn is a good place to stay for several days: nicely located and comfortable enough.

The single room was small as expected, but big enough and had everything essential. It was also clean and seemed newly furbished. The bed was good and 120 cm wide. Service was not fancy, but it was prompt and worked well.

The unfortunate thing is that the doors in the corridor could not be closed quietly, but instead they slammed. Also, the motor of the elevator could be heard in the room. So even if I asked for a quiet room, it was not really possible to have one. If you are a poor sleeper, this might not be the best place, but otherwise it really is good for 3 stars and this price. There is no breakfast, but you can find some close-by easily, as the hotel is right in the middle of the center. The hotel is what they say they are, a 3 star hotel, so if you set your expectations accordingly, you won't be disappointed.
