Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    Nice option to taste local food at a reasonable good price. Near the harbor and the sky wheel. The spa it’s also close by the harbor

    Great central location is a can’t miss opportunity for people watching. This block sized square is a popular magnet for folks climbing the steps for perfect views of downtown Helsinki. You’ll eventually cross through this iconic location, stop for a moment and appreciate the wonderful ambiance.

    Nice little park in Helsinki with a lot of nice shops and restaurants nearby. Definitely worth the visit if you find yourself in Helsinki

    Stopped for a quick walk through while waiting for the ferry to the island. I found it mildly interesting with many of the stalls selling the same kind of things. Expensive either way you cut it. We did buy some canned sardines and they were $10. Time for the ferry before we spend more.

    Oh what jewels to be found inside. This is a big library with 7-8 levels. It's a book readers paradise for sure!
    Entry is free. You need to leave your coats, umbrellas and food etc at the ground floor. There are free lockers.
    The building from inside is beautiful, with gorgeous frescoes.
    The library is spic and span and well organised. Many places to sit and read in silence.
    There is a cafe downstairs but didn't check it out. Clean restrooms.
    A week is not enough in such a place.

    A great location for an outdoor market and some really interesting stalls. The arts and crafts ones were really good but the food stalls were just the best. What was disappointing was that we had just had lunch before walking down here and some of the hot food stalls smelled delicious. Next time I come here, I starve myself for the day.

    The large monument is really cool and you can walk up on the rock and under it to see all the intricate designs. The park where the monument is located doesn't have a lot to see, but it's quiet and there are walking paths

    nice place, but overcrowded. Its hard to find a spot for eating anything what they sell. Anyway if you go there not in the middle of a day f.e early in the morning - You may be lucky to seat and it or drink.

    There are several attractions near the Market Square. One of them is this attraction. As I got closer, I noticed it to be working, but I could not see any riders or people falling in line to take the rides.

    This ride I can take, but not the roller coasters. I’ll definitely come back her to experience the ride before leaving Helsinki.

    Caused an uproar with some when first launched to the public in 1908. The intention of the sculpture was to symbolise the rebirth of Helsinki. Its iconic to Helsinki.

    Definitely would visit there again. So beautiful and nice little place to relax. Many different plants and even a small fish pond. At summer there is also different roses in a garden. Tram stop is just next to the garden so it is easy to get there. Free entrance.

    Anybody can enter to admire the University Library built above the metro station and designed by Anttinen Oiva Architects in 2012. There is a small door at Kaisaniemi on street level but the main entrance is on Fabianinkatu. A connection through several doors and corridors leads to another remarkable showcase of Finnish architecture, the Porthania which too belongs to Helsinki University. Aarne Ervi whose works include the Töölö Library and the almost derelict Heikintori shopping center in Tapiola designed it in the 1950's.

    Seriously you can only laugh. It was by Tyynenmerenkatu. Just a sign of Finnish fun. It's not a must see landmark but if you come across it you will see the funny side of it.

    Location of this outdoor ice rink is great as it is in the city area and close to the hotel where we stayed. We hired the skates and really had fun skating there. We went to the rink in the afternoon and it was not crowded. There's a cafe so we could sit indoor watching people skate while getting a coffee.

    Very clean terminal, after passing to the boarding area, a lot of places to sit and also some space to play interactive video games and for people to eat.
    What I minded a bit was bad organization. I never knew when is the boarding, until when do I need to be somewhere, etc. People were just pushing themselves and me not knowing what's happening at the dead of the crowd, I needed to kind of just follow them. I would appreciate some information tables or audio announcements.
