“Excellent business hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 5, 2011

Beautiful hotel, clean, super quiet, helpful staff.
Quite far off the city centre, but there's always the metro station (approx. 300m).
Away from main attractions, but perfect for business travelers.
The breakfast was more than satisfying.
Major drawbacks:
a) No room service after 23:00 (kitchen closes and there's not even the option of cold snacks.
b) Bar closes at the same time (for my taste it a bit early)
c) Although cable internet access is free of charge (in the room), wireless internet is charged. Why do you spoil the fun???

Actually, all HI are similar, I did not mention anything special about this one, besides the sauna they have. The hotel is situated in business area, crowded in working days and quiet and empty on weekend. Do not expect good window view or something, it is just the place to overnight. For me the main reason to choose it was the price- Helsinki is incredibly expensive comparatively to other cities, and HI was both cheap and comfortable.

The hotel is located in the business district. The room was very
simple and functional. In the lobby and the room was free tea and
coffee. The beds had several pillows: soft and hard. Elevator took us up
only with the e-card for the door to the room. The hotel had a sauna,
but we did't have time to use it. But we used the business center,
where we registered us and printed boarding pass for the flight back
home. In general it's good hotel, i can advise you to stay there.

I've been traveling to Finland 2-3 times a year for the past 5 years and keep coming back to Holiday Inn City West. It's clean, comfortable and quiet. The breakfast is outstanding. I've only had dinner there once and it was great. I really like having coffee and tea in the room. Seems to be getting more rare these days so it is a big deal for me. Decent gym that does the job. Only EU comparison is one from Ireland last year.

Room Tip: Ask for a room on the 9th floor.

I'm not normally a fan of a) big corporate hotels and b) Holiday Inns, so I wasn't expecting much when my client booked me in here. However, I was very pleasantly surprised. The room was perfectly fine - comfy bed, nice shower. The food was lovely. Great breakfast and we ate in the hotel every night. They were very happy to mix and match the dishes, so by the end of our time there we were just combining the best parts of everything :-)

Best of all though were the friendly and helpful staff. They made us feel very welcome, and I found it largely thanks to them that this didn't feel at all like the 'large corporate' hotel I had expected. Thank you to everyone working in the reception and restaurant - you do an excellent job.

This is one of the very few non-smoking hotels in Helsinki. Clean and spacious rooms....great sauna and above all convenient location (close to the ruholahti train station). greatly recommended

There is a shopping mall across the road which has departmental store as well...a nice place to pick some Finnish chocolates and Finlandia.

The harbor is at a walking distance and has ships leaving for Tallin...a great citynto visit on a day trp

Modern rooms, great value, it was a pleasant surprise. Staff were very friendly also.
It is a bit of a trek to the city centre but the metro is very close and convenient.
