“quite location on the lakeshore”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2012

The hotel has a very quite location on the lakeshore surrounded by a nice forest with a great mushroom smell n Autumn. 15 min by car from Helsinki city. Nice budget place to relax from city hustle and bustle. You can reserve sauna which is right on the shore. Budget rooms are very small and nothing special.The property is mostly used for conferences and teambuildings. Breakfast was fine, but for dinner you'd better go somewhere else. Of cause, free parking.

5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 15, 2011

Last time I spend 1 night only and it was cold winter, few people only - this time it was 2 nights, summer in the city and full with other guests on trainings and conferences.

The rooms are decent simple, a bit worn but everythings works - not much to highlight but even the single rooms have ca. 1,2m wide beds and you can open the window (in summer you can fell asleep with the sound of the sea). Bathroom is big but shows its age (not dirty but just old)

Atmosphere in the huge complex in a beautiful park next to the beach is typical Finnish: it might be from the 70ies but it's in good shape and well maintened. many windows to let the light inside (in summer), breakfast was one of the best ever in Finland and the 3 Saunas and Sea access (beach) are a big plus (Sauna#3 with beach access to be booked and charged, others for free).

I booked via tour operators at amazingly 60 EUR/night with bf for a single room - great value for a great experience - yes urban - not really in Helsinki (ca. 30min drive, taxi easily 40-50 EUR oneway) - however recommended if you have a car or just want to relax close to Helsinki for low money!

Free Wifi only in the public area - in the rooms cable connection which is charged!

Room Tip: all single rooms (1,2m bed) are on the outer complex, double rooms are in the main building

3 of 5 stars Reviewed August 16, 2011

The room was very small but cozy enough. The reception was very friendly and helpful. You might have to walk a bit inside the hotel to get to your room. The restaurant has a nice contemporary feel and view overlooks the woods and the lake which is very nice. Breakfast was sumptuous and fresh.
I must admit, i did not know that this hotel is meant for stay in conferences. Great facility for Conferences and meetings.
The location is very scenic and peaceful but too far from helsinki city centre. We travelled at the time of midnight sun, days were longer so we could walk from Rastila Metro station which is about 15 minutes walk from the hotel. It takes another 20 mins by metro to reach the city centre. Other than the hotel there is nothing nearby. I would not recommend to travellers on sight seeing tour.

Room Tip: Ask for bigger rooms overlooking the lake.

say "Kokoushotelli Rantapuisto Oy", now say it three times fast:) the hotel is excellent, price is a bit on the steep side for a college student though, stayed for one night only, highly recommended, if you can afford it

Always stayed in this hotel when we are in Helsinki.
It is very convenient for traveling by car.
Located in a quiet green area on the shore
Staying at this hotel is soothing, especially if you have to go to the sauna or stroll through the dark alleys of the park around the hotel and go in the evening on the bay
Cosy rooms with complimentary Wireless internet.
Also, happy friendly staff and great breakfast

This hotel is situated in beautiful country side next to sea, near subway station Rastilla.
The way to the city takes about 20-30 minutes, its possible to access the hotel with public transport
whole day and night (day - subway & bus, night - night bus to Rastilla).

Polite receptionist, cozy room, one computer with internet connection and printer in the hall, specious bathroom, and perfect breakfest (including nutmeg melon and some finnish dishes) are composing from staying in this hotel unforgettable experience.

Will come again!!

if you are looking for a Helsinki hotel, this hotel is not good! If you are looking for a reasonably priced hotel close to Helsinki in a nice nature area close to sea and you have a car: here is a good value option. The rates start 45 EUR in low season and shouldn't be much higher than 80 in more busy times.

I couldn't find any Wifi in my room and if I remember right the cable wasn't for free (how can this be a conference hotel?)

Basic small rooms as usual in Finland, recently rennovated - if you like the location and good rate: go for it!

Above avarge only because of the value and nice surroundings!!! Compare it to Hilton Kalastatorppa (which is closed to City and historical site)
