The Holiday Inn is located very convenient right next to the train station. We took the train from the airport and it was right next door to the station. Upon departure so easy to leave our luggage at the hotel, explore the city and head back to the airport via train to catch our flight. The reception staff are very nice and were great in accommodating our party of 3 with a extra fold-out bed in the room. Definitely recommend to book the rate with breakfast, the breakfast spread is a great selection of local Finnish items and is much better than your average US Holiday Inn selection. No complaints about cleanliness of the room, everything was clean and tidied up again every day we went out.

It’s located in the middle of the town, that’s why it’s easy to see the sights and take the bus or train everywhere. The room was comfortable and everything we needed was there. It’s seems to me that the hotel was popular and that’s why the stuff had hurry to empty the trash in the bathroom and the floor was sticky a little. Beds were comfortable. Breakfast was great and various. First we wanted to go by car but parking was quite expensive. But obviously it’s the city center.

This hotel has a very central location at Helsinki Central Station. We booked a standard room for 97 euros but as an IHG Platinum member, we were upgraded to an Executive room on the top 8th floor with stunning views. The rooms are not extra spacious but very practical. Executive rooms have complimentary water and chocolate, better bathroom amenities, and bathrobes. The breakfast was pleasantly calm with friendly service. The food selection was very good. The breakfast was included in our room rate. Otherwise, it is 20 euros per person. The reception staff was very friendly.

Location is good being so close to the train station as I was coming in from Tampere. Room size is good as I was there for business. Good walking distance to the shops, waterfront and supermarket is just around the corner. Breakfast is a good selection for the holiday inn, others I’ve stayed in didn’t have the same range. The fitness gym has all the necessary bare minimum equipment (bike, air walk, treadmill..) however no wifi signal in there. Needs a good clean, equipment is looking a little worn.
