Hotel Helka is sadly let down by its surrounds. We walked through litter and broken glass ( at 7.30am) to get to its front door, with anxiety building as we approached its entrance, as to what we might find! Thankfully, once inside, our worries vanished. We were met by efficient,though rather stern looking, reception staff. Check in and check out was fast and hassle free.The waiting area was well set up to accommodate more than one set of guests checking in at a time. Our room was nicely decorated, true to Scandinavian simple chic! And very clean. It had everything a traveller needed. Breakfast could be more creative as the menu was repetitive and basic. Staff was helpful in calling a taxi. This hotel sells Finnish design ware but I would like to suggest perhaps they can add umbrellas to their list of items for sale especially for the rainy season :)
