A beautiful historical building with a modern interior design. Very comfort, centrally located, close to the rail station (8-10min of easy walk), the staff was great, the breakfast was very good and diverse (I think for every taste). There is a bar on the last floor, the view is amazing.

Very good location, friendly staff. The room was on the first floor, which wasn't the best option, but it was ok. The shower was super weird and didn't function properly. I know it is an old hotel and they respect traditions, but it was still too out of date, in my opinion. I understand the style, but everything seemed very... More

After reading stories about Hotel Torni during the Cold War era, I decided to experience staying at the hotel. The hotel ground was dotted with art pieces and gave a very artsy ambience. We stayed in a Solo King in Art Deco style. Room was big and spacious. Although it was on a low floor but it was alright. The... More

Overall When the hotel opened in 1931 it was the tallest building in Helsinki. It still has great views over Helsinki. The hotel is well kept and has beautiful decor. There could be more cleaning staff and better breakfast to truly make this hotel the gem it deserves to be. If you are looking for authentic Helsinki experience with good... More

Cute little lookout and bar. Great blueberry cider. Super near 360 view of the city. Friendly staff from the front desk to the terrace bartenders. Fun spiral staircases to observation terrace and to very clean WC. Unique sunset view of the sea port and the towers of the city at the arctic circle.

Nice old hotel with unique history. Location could not be better in Helsinki. Rooms vary a lot, in general they are clean and decoration is very alternative from the main Skandinavian style. With old building comes some tricks, this is not Open and spaceous, more like a mace with narrow hallways. This is the place where locals go to stay... More

The building is the highest building in the center of Helsinki and the hotel has different kinds of room types. It as a bar on the highest floor (open to everyone) where you have the best views to Helsinki. However, as a hotel there are better options available in Helsinki, as the building needs renovation.
