I stay in Holiday Inn Helsinki for 2 nights in late Oct 2012. The hotel location is good, you can take the Finn Air airport bus (fare at Euro 1.60 p/way) and it stop at the end of the bus terminal where the hotel is just cross opposite. There is also a railway station diagonally opposite the hotel which you can travel to any outskirt cities of Finland. Shopping centre are within walking distance from the hotel so is actually quite easy to move around. Never visit Helsinki over the weekend coz the shop closed early on Saturday and do not open on Sunday, not even the local sightseeing tour or attraction places. I happened to stay over the weekend so you can imagine that I can't do anything except shopping during the opening hour and most of the time stay in the hotel room to serve internet, fortunate that they provide free wifi in room. As we went in late Oct, the weather is cold around 5-7 degrees so the air condition in the room is off so is the air ventilation, the room is very stuffy & window sealed. Luckily they do provide us with a fan so at least we have some air to "breathe" We are glad we just stayed 2 nights and move on to Rovaniemi for our early Xmas celebration before heading to Barcelona.
