“Comfortable hotel in good location”
Reviewed December 25, 2012

We stayed in a junior suite and found it to be quite comfortable. Check in was good and we booked a tour with the front desk while waiting for room. Tour was great and would highly recommend. We had breakfast in the restaurant on the first morning which was quiet good but had to leave early the next day for a flight and the hotel wanted to charge extra for us to take some fruit for our small children even though our room rate included breakfast! We also had lunch in the restaurant and met a charming waiter from the Philippines. The other waitresses need to lighten up a bit and learn to smile, as a guest you feel more comfortable when people seem happy to have you there

Booked this hotel through an on-line reseller. I don't recommend doing this in Western Europe because you can negotiate better rates and rooms directly with the hotel. That said, this was a very clean and efficiently operated hotel. After some polite but brisk discussion with an intractable reception person, a follow-up with management netted an upgrade from standard room to 'junior suite.' The overall difference was amazing. The junior suite was roomy, much more well stocked and very comfortable. Breakfast would have been €21 more p/morning, so we passed. Both restaurants were superior quality and fare, but quite pricey (avg €15-€20 more pp compared to city restaurants. No need to eat at the hotel anyway as Helsinki is a gastronomic delight. Delightful and scenic 10-15 min walk (or tram ride) to city centre. Nice gym, sauna, pool, health club at basement level. Take the Finnair shuttle bus from airport (€8.50) - very convenient & comfy. WiFi re-authentication every 15 mins was a bit annoying.

Room Tip: Beg to upgrade to junior suite

I got a good rate with breakfast and wifi included so can't complain. Room was of a good standard, was kept awake on one night by a digger outside shovelling snow but that wasn't the hotel's fault ! It is not too far from the airport, and cabs ore regularly available outside the front for getting out and about. Would stay here again.

Just got back from a 4 night business trip in Helsinki and stayed here at the Crowne Plaza! Been to Helsinki before and have always stayed at the SAS Radisson Plaza in Mikonkatu.

All I can say really the hotel is very good and is very big. Check-in great quick the receptionist was very attentive, I was given a room on the 6th floor. Room was big and comfortable. Bathroom nice and modern!

Gym located on the lower level floor was fully equipped and had a sauna and swimming pool attached to it.

Breakfast was good usual hot and cold offerings and plenty of variety gave me a lot of options.

Both Restaurants again offered good variety of meals to suit all palates.

Location can't fault it 10 minute walk to the main shopping area.

Plenty of restaurants and bars adjacent to the hotel from Thai to Indian to Tex Mex

Just really impressed with the hotel and also the staff who even supplied me with an IPhone charger for the duration of my stay as I had forgotten mine back in the UK!

Great connections to the airport for only €5.50 - I stayed here for three nights as part of the Lenny Kravitz tour, and it was absolutely fine, free wifi, huge rooms and very pleasant staff.

It's great for checking out the city centre which is beautiful, if I return to Helsinki, it's highly likely that I'll be returning to this hotel!

I personally didn't have breakfast at the hotel, as it seemed a little expensive as I don't ever eat cooked food in the morning :) so i just hopped onto a tram and went into town, a few colleagues ate in the hotel though and had no problems at all

Stayed here for 2 nights on a recent business trip. The Hotel is centrally located, has a good array of services and also a decent bed - so i slept! ( hooray)
The only let down for me was the price of the breakfast - 21 Euros ! Walk along the street a little and you find a couple of cafe's that are much cheaper.

Definitly a great hotel, I stayed in a family room and the room was huge and very comfortable. The bathroom was pretty big and very good too. The whole room looked more like a Suite actually, it was great. Plenty of light in.

Nothing bad to say about Crowne Plaza actually. Good location, there's a tram right next to the hotel, it's close to the city center... The swimming pool + sauna is obviously a plus, the facilities are just great.

The staff was always very helpful.

And actually if you look carefully you'll find some good deals to stay there!
