Hellsten Helsinki Senate
Reviewed December 3, 2013

My wife and I were there at the beginning of November this year. I've got to say it was the cheapest place for 2 people of all autumn season.
Now pros and cons of staying there. Positives outweigh negatives totally. So they are :
1. Convenient apartments where kitchen, small living room (with TV) and bedroom are combined into one pretty big room.
2. There is a kettle, an oven, a fridge and a coffee machine in the kitchen. The kitchen also has a set of plates, cups etc.
3. The living room has a dinner table, a TV set and a couple of armchairs.
4. There are two night stands on the each side of a double bed.
By the way there are enough plugs, so you can recharge all you devices.
5. There is a set of towels for a bathroom, that has a toilet and a shower. There are also some showers gels for visitors.
6. Finally, there is a sauna on the ground floor, which you can book by calling the administrator.

Now let's talk about negatives.

1. There is no filters for the coffee machine.
2. There is only one shop - Kmarket, which is expensive a bit.
3. If you have a double bed, you will have two little blankets for each person instead of a big one.

As for the transport, there is a tram stop near the hotel. (The tram number 4).
As a result, I'd advise this hotel.

Although I can take Tram 4 or 4T to Hellsten Senate Hotel, instead I decide to take about a twenty minute walk from the city center.

I have booked a single room for the night but at check in I am upgraded to an apartment that is so large “I can play baseball in it”. My bathroom even has a sauna in it. Nice.

The staff here is friendly and helpful although the office stays open only until 5pm.

This property is in a nice quiet neighborhood with easy access to all of Helsinki's attractions with a tram stop less than a quarter mile away.

If you're staying in Helsinki you'll need public transport, the tram is up the street, about 40 metres. These apartments have a part time reception crew but are well organised for out of hour arrivals and departures (they send an access code ahead of time, all electronic doors etc). Nice Art Deco inside and toasty warm rooms, living, dining and full kitchen if you want to cook and free laundry facilities available. Walking distance to convenience store, some restaurants and tram line. We had a room with a balcony and our own sauna, great fun!

Room Tip: Request a balcony and/or a sauna

Very nice (clean and peaceful) apartment and suitable for family staying near the city of Helsinki. Very good value for price. There were some cups and plates in the kitchen, but no sugar, salt etc...

I did not have high expectations of this apartment hotel but I was pleasantly surprised.

I had a very spacious one bedroom apartment, large living area with kitchenette in the corner and dining area. In the bedroom there was a nice double bed and two sturdy looking foldaway beds neatly stored in the corner.

All windows had good curtains (a must in the summertime Finland) and I even had a small balcony, which was lovely.

There is a shop just down the road where you can go and stock up on all lovely Finnish food, you will have everything you can think of back in the hotel to store and cook whatever you buy.

I only wish I'd stayed for longer time!

Great location just minutes from the city center. Wi-fi is included, has a microwave, full size refrigerator, stove top and dishes/pots/etc. Includes the use of laundry services and a private sauna. Would absolutely stay in this location in the future. Best hotel of the 5 we stayed in within Helsinki.

-not far from city center & ferry
-free wifi
-room has a small kitchen


Looks like not Hotel, but apart-hotel. Hotel has no receiption on weekends, have to call to check in.

Nothing more to add. At all. 200 char are too many.
