Reviewed July 18, 2014

We enjoyed our stay at Finn starting from the early check-in (thank you, Lauri), a nice room on the 5th floor, free high-quality pot-made tea. The girl at the reception was very friendly and offered practical advice about the restaurant for the late-night meal . The discounted breakfast at the next door restaurant Kiila was good, too. We also had lunch there on the following day.The hotel is very central, close to the bus and tram lines to take you to other parts of the city.Traffic can be quite noisy at times. The interior of the room is quite minimalistic, but has a modern designer touch and beds were comfortable. A small lift was fun, but quite efficient!

This hotel is located in a wonderful part of town. Lots of action, with shops, sightseeing places, restaurants, bar, train station near by. The huge problem though is two-fold, NO air conditioning available and major partying noise from the street ALL night long. The town does not sleep. We used ear plugs to shelter the noise but this did not help. Maybe if we could have closed our window but our room was HOT.

Great price but with a cost.

Room Tip: Ask for a room away from the street noise.

This hotel is centrally located in Helsinki, and the price was definitely right for my wife and I. The room was stylish, youthful, but small: just big enough for two single beds with a little space between them. There was no closet, desk or chair. The washroom is also small but modern. That said, the floor of the shower should have been slightly lower, or, perhaps, sloped towards the drain because the water got everywhere and almost out the bathroom door. A squeegee would've been appreciated in order to dry things up faster and keep it all clean. There was some street noise that came in through the 6th floor windows, but there's not much that can be done about that.

Dear academia_nut,
Thank you for your review.

We have recently divided our twin rooms into two different categories. This allows our guests to choose between cheaper and a bit smaller and bigger and a bit more expensive rooms according to their wishes. Bigger ones do have a closet, a desk and a chair, for example.

A squeegee is a very good idea, thank you! We’ll go and get those right away.

Best regards,
Lauri / Hotel Finn

The location can't be beat---half a block from the main street and within walking distance of the port, the bus station, trams and a large shopping center and the famous Stockman's Department Store. The staff at the reception desk were wonderful; incredibly knowledgeable and helpful and friendly. However, I would not stay here again. The hotel is on the 5th and 6th floors of a commercial building. There is a reception desk on the 5th floor but no lobby. They have hot water, and you can make your own tea bag for tea, but no coffee in the reception area. There is no breakfast, but they will give you a coupon for a 7 euro breakfast at a nearby restaurant. There is no English TV, no phone in the room, you have to ask for a hairdryer at the desk, you have to put a sign on the door to get maid service, and the lighting in my bathroom was so bad I couldn't see to put my makeup on

Dear MsEnergy,

Thank you for your review.

We’re happy to hear that you enjoyed our hotel’s location and customer service.
Our hotel is a small, family-owned, inner city hotel and our aim is to provide our guests with reasonably priced no-frills accommodation with excellent location and warmest possible service.

We’ll however take your wishes seriously, and consider getting some international channels into our tvs and making free coffee available for your guests as well. We have nowadays request-only maid service in order to respect the privacy of our guests and the environment.

Would you please contact us directly, we would like to know the room in which you stayed and see, what we could do for the bathroom lighting.

Best regards
Lauri /Hotel Finn

Good value for my money. Nothing too special but nice place to sleep and take a rest in very central location of Helsinki. Staff was also helpful!! Only minus that the room was wayyy too cold and I felt like I was freezing some parts of The night.

Hotel Finn is a great value and a close walk to everything. I traveled solo this trip, so finding something close to action was important, and as an added bonus it was quiet. The people at the desk were knowledgeable and helpful as well. The breakfast they offer at a local restaurant is also worth the 7 Euros. If you are looking to save a bit of money and still be near the heart of Helsinki, Hotel Finn is for you.

Very clean and well maintained. Comfortable beds. Nice bathroom with plenty of hot water. Strong wifi, even in the room. Nice view of the street below. Short walk from the central bus/train station. Very close to the main street, therefore nice short walk to the 2 cathedrals and the wharf, from where I caught a ferry to Suomelina. Maybe a bit pricey for what it was, but Helsinki was expensive! No proper reception or lounge area. But the guy at the reception was very helpful - went out of his way to check me in before the normal time. Recommended.
