Cumulus Hakaniemi
Ranked #35 of 66 Hotels in Helsinki
Reviewed July 1, 2014

It is a ‘standard’ type of hotel I would say, so it is ok for business and city trip. The location is pretty good, walk to main square takes about 15 minutes, which we did comfortably (I was on a business trip, but wife and baby came for a few days sightseeing). There is bus/tram/metro stops right in front of the hotel which puts you in touch with most parts of the city if you don’t fancy walking, although it is not that big a city to have to worry to much.
We have in the past had breakfasts at this type of hotel, and they are a bit basic, but it depends on what you want, so we opted to go to local cafes and markets (as I don’t go on holiday to sit in the hotel). The staff where very helpful, particularly as it was our first time abroad with our baby. The wifi seemed to work quite well, which is always useful.
From my understanding, Helsinki can be quite expensive, so although I would not regards this as cheap, I think comparatively you get what you pay for.

In a central location, easily reached by bus from the airport and a short (15 minute) stroll from the city centre. Room was clean and modern. Just a shower (no bath) in en suite, and breakfast is OK. Would certainly stay again. It is a nice hotel, clean, efficiently run but no frills.

Room Tip: Rear of building (where I was) is apparently quieter

This hotel is rather well located not so far away from centrum of Helsinki. The staff is friendly and helpful. The rooms are fine, but you should ask for a room not facing the street as the tram is rather noisy.
The breakfast was not so good. No variation of fruit, only orange and apples, and the warm buffet was only small sausage, meatballs and tasteless stirred eggs. But for a short stay, 1-2 nights, is is ok.

A lovely stay here in 2012 October. Small but stylish rooms, clean and comfortable. Got onto WiFi eventually. Breakfast fine but limited reception area. Easy from airport and bus stops right outside. Not far to walk to local attractions, though it has to be said that Helsinki is pretty grey in winter.

Spent here for about two weeks. The room was on the smaller side however, the bed was excellent. Bathroom was very clean and well lit (something I noticed other hotel lack). Breakfast was very nice especially of you grab a table by the windows overlooking the square in front of the hotel (it was a really nice pick me up in the morning). The hotel is positioned 10 meters away from a metro entrance so you can get anywhere very quickly. Overall my stay was okay but nothing really exquisite or special about the hotel.

Room Tip: Try booking a room overlooking the square in front and not the rather grey backyard.

Stayed one night on mayday with my boyfriend in Cumulus Hakaniemi. We chose the hotel for the cheap prize and breakfast included. We loved!
Room was average and small, we had twin beds but used only the another. Clean facilities, and really nice views from windows! There was no minibar or fridge in the room, a small minus for that. Best part of the stay was absolutely having breakfast at second floor and look outside what happens on the streets. Breakfast room was really quiet, there were only like ten people with us and there were space for at least 50 more. Food was average but joyful with the peaceful atmosphere and the view :)

Spend one night during business trip, and was happy to get clean and nice room to sleep. There was free wifi, but I didn't use it. No minibar, but I didn't miss it.

With really small public areas hotel felt small.

Breakfast was good, but crowdy.
