Good for a business trip

For a business trip in Helsinki area Helka hotel represents a good solution for the price/quality and for the position in the city. The room is a little bit too small and too essential

Great value in expensive city

This hotel is right near a tram line, subway station and has great access to shops and the city is 10 mins by foot. The breakfast buffet is superb and is broken up into sections, deli meats, cereals,cold, hot and tea/coffee. I love the low lactose milk option! The room was an excellent size for a European hotel, the window could open just a little if you wanted some fresh air and there was ample space for my laptop and to spread and sort my clothes. Bathroom was also clean with a decent pressure shower. Staff, friendly and courteous. Really you can't ask for more in a hotel. Stay here, the rates are fantastic!

Good modern hotel

The outside entrance was disappointing (they are awaiting approval to upgrade it) but the staff and the hotel itself were very good. Excellent food, well served, but the menu was rather limited. We walked up from the Station when we arrived with difficulty, the maps were not easy to follow; subsequently we were able to get around OK though. Hop-on Hop- off bus good for sightseeing (25 euros) and plenty of buses and trams - if someone tells you where they go! The Finnish language is VERY difficult, but most people speak English. Good ferry trip to the islands of Suomenlinna. Good Art Deco buildings in the city.

Fairly basic hotel in the city centre

I stayed for two nights and appreciated the easy walk from the airport bus stop and railway station. It is next to an old railway track used as a footpath to the city centre. The reception was still open and helpful when I arrived at 1:30am. Older style hotel but comfortable. You do need the eye shades from the plane, as like many European hotels, the curtains are not quite as wide as the windows and there is not much darkness in July.

Very good hotel, nice location, a bit pricey

The Helka is located right in the middle of Helsinki, just a short walk from the railway station, the commercial centre, the Rock Cathedral, the main University campus, and the Kamppi shopping and transport centre. The staff were courteous and helpful, the room was quiet and comfortable and the breakfast excellent. We thought it was pretty expensive, but then again most things in Helsinki are.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Catch the 3T tram from Kamppi and you will see all the tourist sights at a fraction of the cost of any tourist bus.
