“A good place to stay”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed December 30, 2012

I stayed one night and found this to be a good choice for a quick visit to Helsinki. The staff was good and courteous and the location next to the train station and next to the bus was perfect because I arrived in town on the train and left by air. The room itself was nice with a comfortable bed but was just a tad worn with some stains on the bathroom sink and cabinets that could use refreshing. But the bed was excellent, the room was quiet and the location couldn't be beat so I have no complaints overall. I will certainly consider this hotel again should I return to Helsinki one day.

The hotel is located right in the center of Helsinki, close to the bus station and railway station. Room was confortable, without noises. Breakfast has a good variety, even if not too much "sweet" food. Businness Center easy accesible with the room key.

It was chilly in the room and that's the only problem. Breakfast is standard, sauna is warm. Location is perfect, just nearby the main railway station.
Other was expectable considering the price.
Hotel is a bit tired in general.

My husband and I are frequent travelers...and we like to stay in places that are both affordable and conveniently located. The Holiday inn in Helsinki Central is such a place...we've stayed there twice..and plan to return next year as well. The facility is very nicely appointed..the rooms are comfortable...but, in our opinion, the location is its chief charm. Alighting from the bus that brings you into the city from the wonderful Helsinki Airport, one will see the hotel, only steps away! Couldn't be more convenient...as the train station is right there as well.

This hotel has a perfect and convenient location in the city center, facing the railway station & the bus station (to & from airport). My husband and I found it very easy to explore the city from the hotel, walking of course. And the hotel was very quiet though trains are just at the back of it.

Room was beautifully designed, not spacious but convenient enough. Beds and pillows were comfy.

Staff were helpful. We had smooth check in & out. And there was free wifi in the room and lobby with a 24h or 12h username and password, which we got from reception.

This is a typical Holiday Inn, friendly staff, and a standard restaurant. The rooms are hot and dry and if you open the windows (only a little is possible) there's a lot of noice if your room has a street view. So always ask for an inside view, not a street room. prices are OK, taxis plenty in front. Nothing fancy, but it is OK.

Good location for the airport bus as it drops off straight in front of hotel. Room was clean if not a little bit dated. Lots of construction going on around the hotel at the time. Quite expensive for what you get, but this is Helsinki!
