My girlfriend and I stayed at this hotel for one night when attending a wedding in Helsinki. The room was a real bargain (via Booking.com), probably because no major exhibitions or other events were going on at the time. It's a fairly large hotel that's not located at the city centre so at times they may have a lot of... More

I barely stayed at this Holiday Inn property for two nights. The room was well furnished and luckily had the dark curtains as well, quite a relief in the land of the midnight sun. It is quite far from Helsinki City Centre, but overall the staff were helpful and it was a comfortable stay.

Stayed in this Holiday Inn on my points and at least didn't have to spend cash on it. Otherwise, quite a few things were disappointing a bit.

Stayed during a conference. An excellent location next to the railway station. Buses and trams going by. Nice, tidy room and only a short walk (inside) to the conference centre. Good breakfast with lot of variety. Small but functional gym. A very slow elevator, but they were building a new one.
