We stayed at Helka Hotel for a couple of nights in July. The staff was very friendly and attentive. As we had an early flight on our checkout day, we got breakfast bags. The room was rather small but nicely furbished and clean, loved the ceiling picture. We never used public transportation, as everything is in walking distance.

We stayed here for four nights at the start of July. As the other reviews say, it is easy to walk from the hotel to the train station and centre of town. There is a guide book in the wardrobe which is very informative, well worth a look. Cool, modern furnishings in the room and it was cosy and quiet. The staff were very helpful and the breakfast buffet was very nice. The restaurant in the hotel is excellent too. I would definitely stay here again.

We stayed at the Helka on the recommendation of some Finnish family and found it a great place to stay. The location made for an easy walk to the train station, outdoor markets, downtown shopping and the waterfront. The room was clean, comfortable and pleasant. The traditional Finnish breakfast with its many options was provided daily. The staff at the front desk were most helpful. I would definitely stay again.

This hotel is in a convenient location for central Helsinki, it was easy to walk from here to the centre of town and it is not far from Kiasma (the modern art museum). My room was a bit on the small side, but fine for one person travelling alone. Breakfast was alright - nothing too exciting, but nothing terrrible either. It was extremely hot when I was here so I was very glad of the air conditioning. Overall, I thought it was good value for the location, especially as Helsinki is a pretty expensive city.

We got a free upgrade to a premium room. Room was fairly small but clean. Location is great and you can walk everywhere! Breakfast buffet was fantastic. Definitely a good place to stay for a city trip.
