“Hotel for those who value location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 13, 2014

The best part of Arthur is its location. From here you can easily reach many historic sights, the market by the sea and the main shopping areas - by walking. Trams and buses plus metro station are just a few meters off. This is a basic and not even a pretty hotel, BUT it is not the cheapest, because it is clean and well functioning. Main feature is that it does not have any luxuries. The breakfast fills you well and the beds are comfortable. Hotel rooms are what you will find in Finland: Nordic, functional, no fuss. If you are in Helsinki for sightseeing and do not want to pay the price of a business hotel, Arthur is a very good choice.I had a room facing street and did not have any noise. It might be a good idea to request upper floors, just to make sure. Clean, safe hotel with good prices. If staying in Helsinki, this is one of the hotels I would recommend at the budget end.

We stayed at Arthur Hotel for 2 nights. It is centrally located just near the railway station. Our room was quiet and clean. Breakfast was included in the price and there was plenty of choice. Reception was very helpful and let us book in at 8am after arriving on our flight from Singapore.

Room Tip: Ask for a courtyard room to avoid street noise.

hihotel was comfortable but very much in need of n upgrade. Furnishings and decor badly need replaced. The staff were very helpful and friendly and it was ideally located for the train and bus station. The restaurant did not have a lot of options unless you went for the a la carte but it was reasonably priced for a hotel. If they gave this hotel a make over i am sure it wold get a much better write up.

Thank you very much for your feedback. It is true, that we are an old hotel and we´ve been renovating the premises little by little. We have some brand new rooms but usually the lowest rate is for our standard rooms which are the oldest.
Nice to hear that you liked our staff and location, these are the most important strenghts as the premises are not so fancy.
Welcome again!

I stayed over for one night with my boyfriend over the weekend in one of the top level jugend rooms.

The room was specious, clean and looked very nice. Extra plus for the big shower. The location was excellent, with a short walking distance to the center, and we found a free parking spot just around the corner.

The staff was very polite and friendly. The only small disappointment was the breakfast, which I think was below the usual Finnish standard. Not that many choices, and hardly any fresh fruits.

It looks a bit "retro" and a refurbishment is probably overdue. However, for the price this was a perfectly adequate hotel and we enjoyed our stay there.

The staff were friendly and helpful, the room clean if a little on the small side, and the hotel location is first rate with many of Helsinki's sights a short walk away.

I did not enjoy the breakfast (which was included in the cost) but that might be because I find eating meatballs for breakfast strange!

Very good situated in a center of Helsinki. Friendly staffю But the Hotel is too old and uncomfortable for the center of one of the European capitals... The room was clean and not small, the bad was owful. The bathroom was incredibly small, it was not even walled shower - water dripping into hole in the floor next to the toilet
About breakfast remembered only tomato herring - coloring, of course, but too much for me...

Room Tip: Choose more modern Hotel

Thank ypu for your feedback. It is true that we are very old hotel, been here since 1907. Some of our rooms are old and the bathrooms has not been renovated. For the future, you can reserve comfort or jugend rooms, they are newer. Happy to hear that you felt our staff was friendly; as the premises are not modern we think it is the most important thing that the service is excellent.
Have a nice springtime!

We found the room clean and the bed comfortable with very friendly reception staff. We loved the breakfast (included in price) which had quite a range of choice. The hotel is close to the railway station and to most attractions in the city centre. Ask for a courtyard room so you are not bothered by traffic noise.

Room Tip: Courtyard rooms are best as no traffic noise.
