“Hotel Finn - nightmare in Finland”
1 of 5 stars Reviewed September 22, 2013

Hotelli Finn - Kalevankatu 3 B, Helsinki 00100, Finland - nightmare in Finland - do not visit if you want to sleep at night! My visit to Helsinki to run a marathon in August 2013 was ruined by this disgusting hostel (it is not a hotel!), teenagers were going wild all over the place after midnight, impossible to sleep, even with ear foam, reception not manned at night, security guard when finally turned up over an hour after being called, told me that this is what Finnish people do and that if I wanted to sleep at night I should have gone to a much more expensive hotel. TV was broken, breakfast was awful. As a comparison, for the same price (around 80 Euro/per night) I stayed in lovely, even elegant central hotels in Copenhagen and Stockholm with fantastic generous breakfast and great service. Hotel Finn is of the most unpleasant hostels I've ever had the misfortune of staying in.

We only had one night in Helsinki enroute to St.Petersberg
The hotel's location was great as it close to transport & most facilities
The room was clean & it's facilities matched its rating
As we were there in summer there is no cooling in the room - so we slept with a window open & got a fair bit of street noise This took a bit of getting used to
Overall very good

The hotel is small, centrally located, has modern, clean and spacious rooms, breakfast for 5€ extra in a near by restaurant and helpful and friendly staff. And all this for a good price. Didn't expect anything else for my one night stay in Helsinki.

I stayed here with my girlfriend for two nights recently during a trip around the Baltic. The hotel is small and functional but good value. The rooms are furnished very simply but to a high standard. Our room was also larger than we would have expected given price paid and the city centre location. A great budget option in Helsinki.

It does exactly what it says on the tin- no frills but clean and bright rooms, modern and surprisingly spacious. No fancy lobbies or pools- that's not what this place is about. I would reccommend this to others. One thing I did find strange in Helsinki in general was lack of double beds which is more of an issue for traveling as a couple.

We only stayed 1 night in Helsinki, but Hotel Finn was a perfect location for our quick 24 hour tour. There are a ton of restaurants and cafes near the hotel, and the main train station is just a few minutes walk.

The room was great for 2 of us, plenty of space. The staff at the front desk was very helpful and the 5 Euro breakfast seemed like a great deal in Helsinki. It's served at a restaurant just a couple of doors down from the hotel.

You can be more center, but not in this price. Railway station about 150 meters (bus to airport leaves from beside it) and bus station 100 metres. Modern, clean. I spent two nights in other hotel price was 40 euros more per night and situation was worse. Notice that you'll get breakfast only 5 euros, usual it is 10-12 euros.
