We spent 2 nights in this hotel to celebrate my birthday.We were really impressed with this hotel;the staff was efficient and friendly,the room clean and very quiet and furnished according to Finnish design.The reception area is welcoming,on the 6th floor there is a small but new and clean sauna.The hotel is located right in the center of the city.Breakfast was spectacular with Finnish berries,porridge,many types of bread,cheeses,sausages,piirakka,eggs,cakes and fruits.
The clientele is mainly Japanese,which seems to have an affinity to Finnish character.
We highly recommend this hotel and we'll surely come back.We found also a good price on the internet.

Very easy to be located, approx. 6 min walk from central station and 2 min walk from Kamppi shopping mall/ bus station. Good services from the staff. Very nice, modern and clean room with comfortable and spacious shower room. Breakfast was good with varieties. Worth the money!!!

Bought two nights for my son and his family. I saw the welcoming smiles, felt the friendly atmosphere and enjoyed a wonderful breakfast with them. The room was quiet and clean, the hotel corridors had wallpapers minding of Finnish forest, trees, animals, birds…which my grandchild ( 1,5 years) enjoyed especially! So if anyone wants to stay in the middle of Helsinki, in a quiet and cosy hotel, I warmly recommend Hotel Helka for you! Welcome, Tervetuloa!

We recently stayed at Helka for 2 nights with our one year old son, and the hotel gave us a spacious room and arranged the travel cot at a short notice, after I realised that the booking site I had used failed to mention about our need for the travel cot.

The location is central and the hotel is tidy and very reasonably priced.
Breakfast was good and I also enjoyed a lovely morning sauna (use of sauna was included in the room price). Staff were welcoming and helpful.

Overall, we enjoyed our stay and are likely to book another stay here again.

Had to stay one night. Pros: very good location, good wifi connection, very clean, polite staff, good breakfast, really enjoyed the sauna. Cons: the room is quite small, did not really like the bedding - the duvet is to think the pillow is small. However, it is still a very good value for the money I paid. I will definitely consider staying there again.
