This hotel is located by museums, the train station, tour buses, and more. You really can't ask for a better location. It's not just the location that makes this hotel exceptional, it's the service. Reception was so nice and super helpful. We were able to lick our bags up while we walked around, both the day we arrived and the... More

This is a terrific hotel in a great location in Helsinki. Staff were unfailingly helpful and friendly. Room was large and had a fridge. It also had a wonderful shower. The noise from the busy street below can be loud if the windows are open, but, once you close the double-paned windows, the street noise essentially disappears. The rooms are... More

Our room was right on the street but we have never slept so well, undisturbed by the noise. Staff was pleasant and courteous and BBC which was not available the first 2 days for a technical problem, was fixed as promised in two days. Healthy Breakfast and soft jazz music were a good way to start the day. It is... More

Location perfect. In the heart of Helsinki. Still not too noisy. Minibar in the room. Rooms are basic, but ok. A bit different hotel experience; small reception, access with a code. Good sleep in a comfortable bed. Breakfast was a disappointment this time; no bacon, milk or juice; well yes but you had to ask for it.

The Best Western Carlton, is somewhat a bit odd place, walking into the reception, which by the way is tucked away behind the stairs to the rooms, you find yourself in the middle between a small restaurant/bistro and a coffee bar. The staff was friendly enough, and the wifi surprisingly was very good. They serve a small but useful breakfast... More

This city centre hotel is not special in itself, my room was a little small and was starting to look a little dated, but not yet shabby or old. An acceptable room that I felt comfortable relaxing in. The best feature of this hotel is that the ground floor is a thriving bar / restaurant. Traveling alone can be dull... More

We, my wife and me,stayed at this hotel one night. Very convenient location just 3 minutes walk to the hotel from the Central railway station. The Finnair airport bus stop is also just opposite to the railway station. So you can save money on taxi. We requested for a quiet room and we got a very quiet room on the... More

The hotel is close to the main train station (where also the Finnair bus arrives) on the first floor of the building. The front desk is next to the Roberts Cafe. The rooms are on the first floor. We stayed in 207, which was ok. Breakfast was included and is served in the restaurant downstairs. All mayor attractions are within... More

Nice hotel with good service and location near everything in Helsinki. Affordable rates including good breakfast. Good beds guarantee good sleep, but the street noise from public transport (trams and busses) start early in the morning. Perfect hotel for the price if you can get a room from the yard side of the building. Ask for it!
