“Can be better, but still good”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 9, 2014

Very, very good. The bad thing that it has not enough cafes. I was searching for a place to drink in, but haven't found any suitable in railway station.

“Much more than just a station”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 5, 2014

One of the most beautiful stations I've ever seen! Don't just walk through it but look carefully, inside and out, including the ticket hall - and look up or you'll miss half of it. And don't miss the 'giants' outside as well.

“One of my favourite railway station”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 27, 2014

This is important landmark of Helsinki, and I visit there at least once per week. I like its architecture and atmosphere. However, sometimes you have to be very careful there. Go to the ticket office, and visit also in old restaurant that is nowadays huge Burger King. Yes, world is changing and this railway station too. Maybe you can find a spirit of Helsinki there. I truly like it.

“Nice”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

It is a bit of an odd building. It's like a hybrid of old architecture with new. The information centre is there and there is some restaurants and cafes. The menus are writtten in Finnish and Russian. There are some nice big halls. It's good to have a look around. The bus to and from the airport stops here too.
