Not even mediocre. Positive; good bed and very very spacious room. Poor: Unhospitable receptioniste, dirty floors, dirty kitchenette, mouldy fridge, very dirty sauna.....etc. etc. Situated in a bit remote part of the city (penninsula) Never again!

The location of the apartments is excellent and it is part of a beautiful art deco neighbourhood. The apartments are large and airy. The apartment we had this time did not feel as spacious as the one we had during our last stay here, and the kitchen was particularly poky. However, it was reasonably well equipped. It would be nice... More

Sanna is a wonderful hostess and was able to help with purchasing Helsinki Cards which saves time and more importantly money! She helped us with parking after checkout until it was time to meet our ferry as well. The hotel offers a self serve laundry which is a great help for a family.

Helsinki isn't a large capital city and this apartment building is within easy walking access to all the major attractions. Its on a tram route 4 or 5 from the station. Its a bit unusual booking in via a telephone though easy enough. We had a great apartment. Large, light and spotless with its own sauna, it was in need... More

With Hellsten Senate you get the real apartment (living room, bed room, kitchen and even sauna!) for the price of *** hotel. Location is just perfect! Katajanokka is a cosy district right behind beatiful Russian church. You would fell in love with this apart hotel if you are comfortable with some dust on lamps and scratches on the walls. Don't...

Love the lift, if you stay please handle with care. Fully equipped and ideal for a few days. No oven but we didn't really need it. Spotlessly clean and shop, park and pharmacy nearby. Also a pub and a couple of restaurants. Would happily stay again

Good value, close to most required Helsinki attractions. The hotel is away from most, but offers clean comfortable rooms at a good price for Helsinki. Slightly weary on decor but this comes at a price! Overall, recommended.

Great location and a large comfortable apartment. Check in was at 3:00 with nobody there before that time. However, we got the code in advance to enter the property and was able to contact their representative and was able to leave our luggage in a secure room. The room could have been better decorated, and there were extra rollaway beds... More

We stayed 3 nights at this apartment. Overall it was poor. You could just really tell the whole thing had been done on a very tight budget- no hairdryer in room (can hire one from reception- this is a hotel but had a budget hostel feel) one toilet roll to last 3 days, poorly equipped kitchen, poorly cleaned, double bed...
