Holiday Inn isn’t a luxury chain anywhere, although its reputation in Europe is better than in the U.S. Against that backdrop, I’d have to say that this property is one of the better ones in the chain. Certainly, it has one of the best locations I’ve ever seen for a Holiday Inn: just across a plaza from Helsinki’s central rail... More

The hotel is right next to the main rail station and on the direct coach route from the airport so very conveniently located - and it's bang in the middle of the city so easy to walk everywhere. We had a room on the 7th floor with fabulous views over the city centre. It was very comfortable, clean and excellent... More

This is a no fuss hotel that is rather newly renovated. It's clean, tidy and has rather ok rooms. The service and check in process was good as well as the location, in the middle of Helsinki. But the hotel somewhat lacks a nice atmosphere. It just feels "clinical". Another thing that did not impress was the restaurant. I dined... More

The hotel is very good, clean and comfortable and in an excellent location smack in the middle of Helsinki. Room was fairly small but big enough to be comfortable and everything was very clean and well taken care of. Despite the location the room was very quiet. Would highly recommend for anyone visiting Helsinki and wanting to stay at a... More

We stayed here three nights and were very pleased overall. We booked an executive room which was on a high floor with a view of the central railroad station tracks. The room was large and comfortable and surprisingly quite. We never heard one train although you can hear the trams on the street in front of the hotel but they... More

A highly convenient and very comfortable hotel right at the railway and bus stations in the centre of Helsinki. Our room had its own sauna. Everything about this hotel is well designed with guest comfort in mind. Can't imagine we would want to stay anywhere else on future visits.

The location is great, right at the city centre and with a lot of transportation available. However, for the business traveler lacks some services that are usually welcome (such as a security locker, extended restaurant hours). Also, the carpet in the corridors had a really awfull smell that the staff didn't even aknowledge. Get used to do it yourself (get... More

Location is very central, close to the train station, shopping malls and restaurants. The service is pleasant, rooms are not very big but clean. The amenities in the room are standard for the chain. The breakfast is continental with good choice.
