This is really an amazingly quiet hotel despite its central location next to the Central station and all the noisy night life of Helsinki. The main attraction can be reached by foot in 10-15 minutes.

The hotel is a bit shabby, though.In the lobby, the couches had quite worn-out covers; the rooms were very clean but the upholstery was worn-out. Maybe they don't have time for renewals?

You can get a great deals for the hotel, especially if you don't take the breakfast. There are plenty for good choices of having breakfast outside in nice cafes.

You couldn't get more central than this! The hotel is located right at the Central Railway Station. Quite standard hotel and everything works. We did not have their breakfast since that is very expensive, you can get a very nice breakfast in many cafes nearby with half the price. Views from the upper floors are great!

We stayed for 3 nights over New Year. When it's cold and you want to be close to the action in the city centre, this hotel was perfect.

Good staff, clean room [albeit a little small - but only to be expected in a value ecntric city centre hotel].

Not disturbed in any way by being next to the station and very handy for the bus to the airport. Late night convenience stores [and a supermarket in the station basement] all added to functionality. 2 minute walk to the Modern Art museum and 5-10 mins to the central squares/shopping streets.

Fairly standard Holiday Inn (clean, good breakfast, wi-fi etc) but in an amazing spot, right next to the Railway station and the departure point for the SAS Airport bus. Can recommend totally for this convenience. Just a few blocks from the city centre and all the action.

Holiday Inn City Centre certainly gives value for money. At the end of a long day and a rather long trip from the airport by bus, it was a relief that the hotel was just right outside the Central Station where the buses also pick up and drop off their passengers.

The room was quite comfortable and spacious, so was the bathroom. Free internet was available in the room which was great. Although the staff was not as welcoming and friendly as those in our hotel in Stockholm, they were sufficiently pleasant. The breakfast buffet was also quite generous with a wide range of choices - and the staff didn't mind if you took a fruit or a cookie out of the breakfast room with you.

Holiday Inn City Centre is a very practical choice. It has the best city centre location, rooms and everything in hotel is practical. However, it lacks a soul almost at all and if the devil lives in small details, it definately lives in Holiday Inn City Centre.

We had a one night family stay and everything went okay. The room was very populated with an extra bed, but the chair-bed was excellent. Despite the location next to main railway station, it's one of the most quiet hotels I've ever stayed. Breakfast was quite ordinary.

At the Railway Squre close to the hotel is a skating rink, where my kid loved to skate. Skating is fun for adults too, I definately support you to try!

Room Tip: Book an executive room.
