Hotel Rivoli Jardin
Ranked #26 of 66 Hotels in Helsinki
Reviewed May 20, 2012

Gracious, fast, efficient front desk, but my room was very spare and utilitarian. A third rate Ikea style sofa fails to make up for the ugly bed frame, and the worst pillow I encountered in three different Finnish hotels. The pillows were filled with polyester fill that had started to clump together, so I had a soft but lumpy pillow.
Wireless wifi is an a additional fee, although there is a serviceable free wired (ethernet) connection for a laptop. For Ipads or other devices requiring a wireless connection you will have to pay the additional nightly fee.
Om the other hand,the included breakfast was quite good, and the lobby's coffee maker allows you to stop by for a free late afternoon coffee. The design of the lobby and breakfast area were quite nice. So if your room is only for sleeping and you don't mind matted polyester filling in the pillows this hotel will work.

I live in Helsinki, so I have not stayed there. I have booked my business associates for many years to stay at this hotel. The rooms are not very big but they are clean and decorated with style. Hotel is owned by private family. Don't be surprised if the room has been cleaned by the owner.
The location is great in the middle of the city. If you want stay in good standard hotel but not like the big hotels, stay here.

Try to find and enjoy. We were lucky to spend weekend high above the roofs. Seeing a bit of sea and a lot of sky – for a while enjoying many services the CityCenter can give. The staff was exceptionally pleasant and helpful. And the breakfast next morning was very versatile and tasty. Want to get more…

One night stay because our house was under reneval. Location of the hotel is excelent, stuff was polite and the breakfast okey. Hotel is located next to very popular night club (Kaarle XII alias "Kalle") so you might hear some "jungle drumming" if you listen very carefully. Almost all Helsinki sightseens are just in walking distance.

Good hotel with spacious clean rooms and in winter well-heated (as all hotels in Finland in winter.....) Entry is a bit hidden behind a gate. This gate is next to the entry of the famous Kaarle XII bar which is opened on Thursday, Friday and Saturday night until 04 am.
No problems with the noise however. It's just fun to have it this close to the hotel if you like to go out in the weekend.
Service is good. Breakfast is perfect!
