Staff were courteous and professional, and the location was excellent, but wifi was below par. I was encouraged to join their loyalty program which gave me free access to their 'premium' wifi but it was just as bad as their regular (equally free) wifi. I was able to sign in and use it from my room but neither of my...

I typically stay at Marriott locations, but since there isn't one in Helsinki, I stayed in this hotel. It was very convenient and close to everything (there is a 24 hour grocery store 300 yards away). But the best thing was the fantastic breakfast buffet. It made it really easy to wake up every morning.

Located in the city centre right next to the train station and a bus terminal. We could walk to just about everything and really get a feel for the city. The hotel was very nice and comfy. The buffet breakfast was great as well. Foosball was fun to play too. I would definitely stay here again.

I have stayed at this hotel several times in the past and twice this past December just before and after Christmas. It is my choice if leave or arriving by train early or late. It is right next to the railway station and also has relatively easy access to airport. This is a solid Holiday Inn hotel that upgrades elite...

Stayed here for a business visit and found great service and nice rooms. The price reflects the down town location. I was a 10 minuts walk from the office I needed to visit in Helsinki, all was easy!

Centrally located and is good value. The train station is a stones throw away. Had a double room which was well appointed and services. The price through booking.com was very reasonable. There is a small bar / restaurant next to reception.

The hotel is quite central which is great for getting around on public transport or for sightseeing. There are plenty if ships, bars and restaurants around. The room is large enough, the desk is very small so not ideal for working with paperwork and a laptop. Lighting is good, the bed comfortable and the bathroom ok. The restaurant isn't cosy...
