“Very good value for money”
Reviewed April 3, 2012

I stayed here three times already and I can only recommend this hotel.
The rooms are clean and simple furnished (two single-beds, desk, chair and television). The bathroom is not that big but if you know Etap hotel bathrooms it's big :-) The staff is friendly and helpful.
For me this is the perfect choice if you want a good value for money.

I have been in this hotel several times during my Helsinki visits.It´s between center of Helsinki railwail station and intrernational airport Helsinki-Vantaa.Let´s say it´s from 12minutes to the main railway station and the 12minutes to the airport Helsinki-Vantaa.100meters from the hotel you´ll found street called Hameentie where´s few tram connections and many bus connections to the centre and to out of the centre of the city.You´ll found also bus stop to the airport- which means you don´t need to take expensive taxies to go to airport.Bus region ticket costed 4€/one way and was quarenteed for 90minutes(!).Someones of Ava´s rooms has fridge on their rooms and you´ll can buy some food,drinks from the local supermarkets which are open from 7a.m. ´til 11p.m. from Monday to Saturday and on Sundays from 12 a.m. ´til 9p.m...The rooms are clean,there´s possibillities to go for sauna too.The views for countryside are lovely with its small cabins.silence Side of the city.I guess this hotel is pretty famous and that´s why it´s many times reserved.I will return!.Thank you Ava hotel staff for your help and professional reception ladies on the desk.

When you go to AVA hotel in Helsinki don't expect anything fancy. It's quite basic hotel with small but quite clean rooms. The architecture and decoration in the hotel is simple and it looks a bit like an asylum inside. It doesn't have a 24h reception and if you check in during the night hours you have to contact the reception on how to enter your room. The personnel is speaking perfect English and they are quite helpful. It's quite far to walk downtown but it's near a big avenue were you can find a tram and bus station 50-60m from the hotel, were the 615 buses take you directly to the airport of Helsinki and you can use the trams to go to the city center. Nearby is also some small supermarkets, a pharmacy and a couple of restaurants but the area is basically residential.
So if you don't care about fancy things during your stay, AVA can provide a clean, basic acommodation in a very good price.

Nice place to stay. Perfect of a family; we had a small apartment with two double rooms (big windows, nice view, Flat-screen, desk, pretty quiet) and shared a small kitchen (microwave, water cooker, water basin, table, two chairs) and a small bathroom.

Thanks to the kitchen we could easily prepare a small breakfast for ourselves (there's also breakfast buffet for 15€ available). The bathroom was very small for four persons and (as usual in Finland) there isn't a separation between shower and the rest of the bathroom. Therefore the bathroom will be completely wet after one has showered.

There's a tram and bus station near the Hotel, you can easily get to the city center (about 15-20min).

Room Tip: 7th floor - nice view

Stayed in the apartment with 2 rooms this summer, and which works out to be really cheap when split amongst 4 of us. The apartment had 2 bedrooms, a bathroom and a mini-kitchenette. There was even a shared kitchen (complete with stove), laundry room and even a sauna (which unfortunately I didn't get to try). Nice and clean, and they make up your room as well. It's more like an rental apartment than a hotel though.

Things to note:
- It's a bit far from the main city area, where you would want to be. Takes about 20mins by tram.
- No free wifi at the hotel, they charge 8EUR for 24h of wifi.
