This hotel is well situated, close to the Kamppi metro station and within walking distance of the train station and most major sights in town. The rooms have Scandinavian design furniture, giving them a modern look. However, the bathroom could do with some renovation. Decent breakfast buffet, with plenty of fresh products. Good value for money.

Everything about this hotel was wonderful, especially the comfortable beds, the friendly and helpful staff at the reception desk, and the delicious burghers in the restaurant. What I really liked was the huge landscape photo mounted over our bed. It made one feel like one was in the middle of the forest in the photo. The location, near a tram... More

I love a big, free breakfast and this hotel had it. I wasn't expecting such a big buffet. It was just what I needed after a late night out. Overall, I enjoyed my 1 night stay here. The staff is very accommodating, the room was perfect and the amenities were great. Good wifi and a comfortable lobby. This hotel is... More

We stayed here for one night during the summer. The hotel is not that close to the central railway station but it is possible to walk if you are fit and have time. There is a pedestrian walkway/bicycle path called "banan" starting at the Kiasma art musem and it passes the hotel. The hotel is in an older building there... More

We stayed at Hotel Helka for a night before we flied home. That day was the Eurogame 2016 and most hotels in Helsinki were full even though the price was almost doubled than normal. I like the buffet breakfast, the friendly staff and nicely decorated room. However, the cleanliness has big room for improvement. The hair-dryer was full of dust!... More
