Forenom House is a budget apartment hotel located outside – but within easy and quick reach – of the city centre. It is only a few minutes walk to the metro with which you can reach central Helsinki fast. There are several supermarkets close to Forenom House, including one that is open 24 hours a day. There are also a few restaurants.
Facilities at the hotel are fine, it was great to have some basic crockery and cutlery (knife, fork, spoon, cheese slicer) to use to make simple foods (e.g. breakfast). There is a fridge, microwave, coffee machine and kettle amongst other things.
Rooms have widescreen television sets, although there is only one channel available in Swedish and no foreign language channels. Wide choice in Finnish however. The room was rather cold (in June) during the night and there was only one extremely fat pillow, which did not suit me for sleeping. There are light insulation curtains provided which is useful during the light Nordic summer nights. Cleanliness could have been better, there was a lot of dust in my room and the WC did not seem to have been properly cleaned after the previous guest.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- Forenom House Helsinki aims to provide modern, simple and hassle-free accommodation close to Helsinki's city center. Because Helsinki is the 2012 design capital, we have decorated these apartments using themes directly taken from Helsinki. By following Finnish tradition, we have kept the design simple and clean by using simple gray-scale wallpapers portraying sites such as the main railway station or an aerial view of Helsinki. Without the need for traditional check-in procedures, getting into your room is quick and easy: after making your reservation, you will receive a keyless entry code via SMS to your mobile phone. This key code provides entry to the general front door and is unique to your apartment. Your room contains everything you could need for a cosy night's sleep or a longer stay as well.
