I stayed at this hotel for two nights as part of a group of MBA students as we toured various parts of Scandinavia. The hotel is located within walking distance of the market and Promenade. The room was small but satisfactory. It’s not luxurious at all, but I’m not certain there are any nicer hotels in Helsinki. The staff were...

Stayed in the hotel for business for three nights, only because of its location. It couldn't be much more central in Helsinki, just a very short walk to shops, offices, tram/bus stops, pretty much everywhere! The views are not that breathtaking from any of the rooms (from what I've experienced & heard), so if you'd like to see at least...

The hotel is located in the city centre and it is walking distance from many tourists attractions. The room are nice and clean, despite being quite old fashioned. Good breakfast buffet.

Presidentti is very conveniently located in the very centre of Helsinki. yet it's quiet and peaceful. The rooms are a bit old-fashioned. but their breakfast buffet is one of the best I've ever had. On the whole. a really nice place

Okay, I understand that I have high expectations, and that European standards are not entirely similar to American ideals. But not changing the sheets or cleaning the room for four days? Just dropping off additional towels? I can deal with the small beds, small rooms, and a bathroom so small you have to exit just to change your mind (!),...

It's perfectly located in the center of Helsinki, you can get there by walk from the harbour or the train station..rooms are normally good, staff is helpful and nice, everything is clean. Free sauna in the morning and good breakfast in a big hall are a big plus, not really cheap, like anything in Finland

This is a quite good hotel, specially comparing prices for the equivalent hotels in Helsinki. The reason however being probably because of the fact that the rooms and specially the bathrooms are in great need of refurbishment. It's not that they are not ok the way they are but it's not what we expect these days, it was probably state...

We chose this hotel for its location close to downtown, shopping areas, cafes. But the rooms were very small and tiny. Our luggage could not fit in. If it did we could not keep both our bags open. Staff were also ok. Not much service available. It had a great spa. I had had a nice finnish sauna. The breakfast...

Huge hotel in the heart of Helsinki, 5 minutes walk from the central station. All shopping centers within walking distance. Kamppi - 150 m from hotel entrance. Each hotel guests receive a discount of 10% in the department store Sokos, however, is not the best city shopping center. Decent breakfast, but in the early morning you may stand in a...

We stayed here for a weekend and the location was optimal. Coulnd't be better (close to the railway station, the bus station was in the opposite building and shopping areas as well). The rooms were very clean and had high speed internet for free. The rooms are quite minimalistic and quite modern. The breakfast was very nice and we enjoyed...

“Request for one near the lifts.”
  • The hinge was broken and sticking out!
  • There was a huge unsightly crack in the window frame
  • The phone had a thick layer of dust, apparently showed that it has not been cleaned in ages!
