My husband had business in Helsinki and so we thought it would be great fun to accompany him from the USA to Finland for a once in a lifetime opportunity. We stayed at the Stayat Helsinki Parliament in a large suite for 2 weeks with our 3 young children. The room was like a small apartment, with a foyer, large closets that held our family of 5's clothes & warm weather gear, a separate bedroom that contained 2 beds & a desk, a kitchenette, living room with sleeper sofa & eating table. There are a couple of grocery stores within a 5 minute walking distance and every couple of days we would walk to the store to buy groceries that I would then prepare for family meals in the suite. The decor was very IKEA, and cleaning staff came daily to clean. My kids loved to sit in the large windows and look out at the streets below. It is in a quiet area but is a short walk to downtown and everything else Helsinki has to offer. Breakfast is provided daily at a little restaurant next door to the hotel but the eating space is tiny and the fare was the same each and every day. After a couple of days of rolls, cheese, and yogurt we chose to just buy our own food and eat breakfast in the suite. The front desk staff could speak English well and were friendly in the quiet, reserved way that most Finns are. I absolutely would recommend this hotel and if we ever happened to be in Helsinki again (as if that would happen) we would definitely stay here again.
