“Great hotel in great location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 15, 2014

We stayed for 3 nights in this hotel. It's was a short walk from the station, the staff were very welcoming and our room exceeded expectations. It was clean, very large and the beds which were comfortable were set in an alcove. There was lots of cupboard space and a kitchenette. In the basement there were washing machines and dryers which were free of charge - just had to supply your own detergent. This was perfect as we had been travelling for over 2 weeks and needed clean clothes. We really enjoyed the hotel and the location. Shops,and restaurants nearby and close to city centre. Would definitely recommend.

Room Tip: Superior rooms were very large

We stayed there for 3 days and the location was great as all major attractions of Helsinki were all just within 10 minutes walk. And grocery store was also just 10 minutes walk. Coffee shop just opposite and there was a restaurant right next to it where the owner and staff of the restaurant were very nice. If you want to cook yourself, you could also do that as the apartment has a small kitchen with microwave and all the usual utensils.

The rooms were also big and offer enough space.

Thanks to some other reviews here, we took the Finnair City bus and it only took us a few minutes to get to the apartment which was important as we have quite some luggage.

The receptionists were exceptionally nice and extremely helpful as well.

We got this room on Hotwire so it was a really good deal but as an added bonus it was a great place to stay. The location is only a few blocks off of the museum district and the Finnish Parliament. The accommodations were basically like an apartment, with a bedroom, living /eating area as well as a full bath and kitchenette. The laundry was free and there is a sauna that if wish to use privately you just schedule a time. The staff is very nice and most speak English well but it is helpful to learn a few basic word like please and thank you. A 2 hour ferry to Estonia is a great day trip. ENJOY.

The most important thing to remember when booking is that this is not a hotel, it is an apartment. There is no on-site restaurant, so you do have to fend for yourself. However, that aside, this building is only a short 10min walk from the city centre and is in the quiet Helsinki neighbourhood of Töölö. I walked the short 5min walk round to the Scandic Park Hotel and had breakfast there or you can use the Moroccan restaurant directly across the road from the hotel and receive a 10% discount on your order.

The building is early 20th Century and has two sides, A and B. I stayed in Room 251 which was right at the top of the building on staircase B. It was a lovely spacious room with sofa, dining table and chairs, bathroom with shower and toilet, single bed and kitchen area. The kitchen had fridge, microwave and all manner of crockery that you could make use of. There was also a little balcony terrace that you could sit out on and see across the city.

I stayed at the Hellsten for four nights and it was so quiet that I slept like a baby each night. The room was not cleaned during the time I was there, but to be honest that did not really bother me as I didnt make use of the kitchen and only really used the room to sleep.

Room Tip: When travelling from the airport on the Finnair City Bus, get off at the Hesperian puisto stop as th...

I arrived the day before good Friday and was a bit worried as I had read mixed reviews and that if it was as bad as I'd read I would find it hard to move as a lot of Finland stops at Easter. All I can say is there was no need to worry the apartment had more than I could have expected it really was like a home from home. It was spotless,great location,and easy to find ...I really recommend this place and would stay again if the occasion arises.

Room Tip: Higher up rooms are so quiet also remember to book the sauna with plenty of time ...they love them a...

I recently stayed at Hellsten Helsinki Parliament while attending a conference at the University of Helsinki/Finnish Meteorological Insitute. I wasn't quite sure to expect but it turned out to be the perfect hotel for my stay in Helsinki. First, the room was huge and provided ample space for a comfortable, extended stay. Second, the location--about a ten minute walk from central Helsinki--was perfect and in a quiet residential neighborhood. One of the biggest perks at this apartment hotel was the FREE laundry. When traveling in Scandinavia, it can be difficult (and expensive) to find a place to do laundry. I would definitely stay here again if I ever find myself in Helsinki because as it's an excellent value.
