This apartment is located in Katajanokka, five minutes from center. Very quiet and clean. Apartment has all that you need. (dishes, phone etc.). A very good choice to stay in Helsinki. Tram 4 is very closed and handy.

A very nice apartment with everything you need. It is large enough for a family. The location is very close to the city center where you can go anywhere. It is also so close to the public transportation.

The apartment was in a nice quiet location, with frequent tram service straight to the centre of town (less than 10m). Beds, bathroom, sauna, kitchen all good. There was lots of space, but then again, I was alone in the flat. I would recommend it, the staff were pleasant.

Good location, free laundry. Only problem was the noisy front door on closing. Room warm, easy check-in afterhours procedure. The bed could have had a larger sheet instead of two separate ones. I would recommend it to others.

We wanted to spend our weekend in Helsinki City and take our little dog with us and we found out that Hellsten was very close to the Old Port Fair where we were going next day.

First of all, a little disclaimer: I lived in Helsinki during several years and I travel there several times a year. During the past years I rented flats, booked hotel rooms in various parts of the city. And Hellsten has come to be the best choice. First, the prices are very good. For less than 100 EUR a night, you...
