Stayed the night here for my birthday was awaken at 430 am by the fire alarm going off in the entire hotel everyone had to evacuate the hotel for about an hour not knowing what was going on. At check out we were told by the front desk clerk that they could not talk about what happen could not give us any info would not compensate us for the inconvenience but would offer us a free cup of coffee. This was the worst service I have every received not sure if I would every stay here again or tell anyone else to stay

The hotel is simple but it has everything you need, including friendly staff. =) The bed is comfy and everything was clean. The location is really good and everything can be done walking. I would definitely be staying there again.

I found Both Helsinki a great “base” for work travel. Stayed over a couple of weeks while working out of office. Both Helsinki is quiet, with good wifi and enables work well- I stayed in a room on the east side so the morning sun woke me up nicely. After work, it is great walk / run across to Hietaranta beach to train, or just to chill out. If you need town, shopping etc, head 10mins towards centre: Kamppi and Forum Malls are real close. If you need groceries and other basic stuff, Alepa 24/7 shop is just across the road. All-together: Great for work travel, and to balance work & life.

Honestly, I would be quite happy to live permanently in Both Helsinki. The rooms are extremely well priced and the location is second to none, considering the price of the room. It's a 5 minute walk to Kamppi centre, and maybe 10 minutes to the Helsinki central railway station. The rooms come with a kitchenette, a desk, bed, private bathroom and a fridge and freezer. If I ever need a place to stay in Helsinki from now on, I will ALWAYS choose Both!
