The location of this hotel is second to none - not only is it near the station and a rental car company, it's a great base for sightseeing because a lot of the good stuff is within walking distance. We arrived early so left our luggage in their storage room while we explored the area. By 10am, our room was...

Stayed here 3 nights in mid-March before heading off to Ivalo in northern Lapland. We chose this hotel for its central location in downtown Helsinki and were not disappointed. We arrived at Helsinki-Vantaa airport and had a choice of riding the P or I train to the Central Railway Station or taking the Finnair City Bus or 615 bus to...

Good, conveniently located hotel in the City Centre next to the train station. Nothing extraordinary when it comes to service or room fit out. Neither very positive nor negative. Reliable for business travelers.

We stayed here twice, before setting off by train to Northern Finland and on our return before flying from the airport. The hotel is so adjacent to the railway station that it is almost part of it, and has coach station outside although there is no noise from either discernible within the hotel. Coaches and trains link the location to...

We stayed at the hotel for 1 night in December. The hotel is extremely well located adjacent to the train station (not noisy at all inside, despite being so close to train station), and a bus station opposite. Many attractions are within walking distance. The hotel has the amenities one would expect in such a hotel. The room was of...

This Holiday Inn is directly behind the train station and very convenient to Helsinki's excellent and efficient public transport. Also easy walking distance to Senate Square and Esplanadi areas.

We stayed here in Sept. 2016 so apologies for the delayed review. We spent 12 nights there on a bed and breakfast basis.

Ok hotel, not very spacious room. Strange solution with the lights, making it impossible to have bed light on as the last light before sleep (!). Nice and clean. Breakfast limited and very chaotic when hotel is full. Good to be able to select down/feather pillows.
