“Very good restaurant - roof top bar with fantastic view”
Reviewed November 29, 2011

Had a business dinner at this downtown centrally located restaurant. Fresh fresh (pike perche) was excellent and the service was good. We went then next door to the American bar for a night cap and went up to the top floor (12 floor?) where there is an other bar with a fantastic view on Helsinki.
I can really recommand to go up and see the view, its worthwile.

The Hotel Torni is celebrating its 80th anniversary. Once the star of the Sokos Hotel chain (before there was a chain), Torni easily has been the most enjoyable hotel early in my current five-week tour of the Nordic region and my first visit to Helsinki. My room, tucked in behind the small landscaped court, was obviously older but not worn, the bed was exceptionally comfortable, and the degree of cleanliness throughout was impeccable. I could never get even my own bathroom that clean! The breakfast was more than adequate, the location of the hotel couldn't be much better (although not all rooms provide a view as do hotels costing three times as much -- but the idea in Helsinki is to get out, not stay in), and the staff was always friendly, helpful, and accurate when called upon. They spoke better English than me. I think this place is great.

Room Tip: Some halls are eccentric in keeping with the age of the building, so if you are adverse to wandering...

Well, I know I was in Helsinki and that was January but still the room could be warmer. Otherwise it was a very nice and clean room/bathroom. I would like to know where can I buy more of the Lingonberry shower gel they provide :-) The day I arrived it was over 0`C but the other days was about minus 15`C so to get to the hotel (uphill) was pretty difficult and I was very happy to wear my mountain shoes! Fish for breakfast? Yes, I plucked up the courage and ate it the last morning! :-)

Very nice hotel, superior room was spacious and clean. Own balcony was a nice surprise. Hotel has a perfect location at center of Helsinki, but still the rooms are quiet and you can't here any traffic noises to the rooms.

This is a hotel with long history. it is perfectly located and really stylish. We had a family room which was big enough but unfortunately provided no view to at all. If you are lucky the rooms up in the tower offer brilliant views. The Atelje Bar on the top is most recommended, splendid view!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view!

I spent two nights at the Torni (= tower) hotel and was fortunate to have corner room on the the 7th floor with a beautiful view in two directions. It was a quite small single room but everything was very nice and completely satisfactory. A trendy glass wall between the room and the bathroom made both seem larger. The whole hotel has preserved the original art deco style of 1931 when Torni first opened, which I found most interesting and fascinating. Torni has a very central location within walking distance of the central railway station where also the airport bus stops. The breakfast was of high standard.

Room Tip: The view rooms are on the 7th - 11th floor (each having only 4 rooms).

I stayed in the Torni for 3 nights in the Summer of 2010 with my boyfriend. We had a double en-suite room in the third or fourth floor. The room was really nice and clean, bed was really comfy etc. It is probably the best hotel in Helsinki, as far as I'm concerned.

The location is great, just in the middle of central Helsinki.

The breakfast is average, being a bit industrial as many of the hotel breakfasts in Finland. However, you have a lot to choose from!

The bar/café on the roof is something to see - the prices are really expensive but the view is great. It is a really nice place to visit when travelling in Helsinki.

The only warning I need to give are the toilets. Torni has a unique style of having the toilets and the shower box made from glass (or something through which you can see). For couples/good friends it is not a problem, but if you are planning on taking a twin room for example with someone you don't know that well, bare in mind that the other one can see you taking a shower/going to the toilet. It's actually a fun detail!
