I stayed here for a couple of nights and was quite impressed. A very friendly and efficient check-in (it's worth mentioning that, contrary to other reviews, all the staff speak impeccable English). The room was an adequate size, extremely clean and very light and airy. The usual TV, mini-bar, tea and coffee making facilities, etc. And a comfortable bed. Small and somewhat institutional bathroom - and again very clean. Although the hotel is near to busy roads, the rooms are quiet, thanks to double glazing - but also nice that you can open the windows for some fresh air. Good breakfast, with a decent choice. And very fast, free wi-fi. The large pictures of Finnish nature hung on the ceiling over the bed were a nice, quirky touch. The Helka's location might not be fantastic for all destinations in Helsinki, but was close to the offices that I was visiting, so I found it convenient.
