Stayed at the Helka over Christmas 2016 and had a really lovely time. All the staff were really very friendly and helpful. This is the place to stay if you are tired of chain corporate hotels that all seem the same! The Helka has a great personality and a bit of an attitude in a good way. The breakfast buffet...

This is a good hotel, with a good buffet breakfast available. The wifi worked well and the staff were very helpful. This hotel is very close to a metro station with trains and trams. There are also several museums within walking distance.

Very friendly and helpful staff, great central location, good breakfast, but not topped up so choice sometimes limited in the last half hour of service, which could also be crowded and finding a table not always easy.

Very pleasant and quiet room. Was surprised that a room in lower floor (2nd) could be so queiet although the location is right in the middle on the city center. In general , no complaints! Bed was comfy and breakfast was nice and selection good. It was easy to check in and check out and had welcomed feeling.

I really liked the look of this hotel as it is individual and smart - a nice difference from your box standard business hotels Helsinki is full of. Central location is a big plus, you can easily walk everywhere in the centre of Helsinki from here. Check in was easy but I never experienced the customer service as anything above...
