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.

    We purchased an HSL card at the airport to take the train and tram to our hotel near the Marina. You can buy one or multiple days (up to 11) at any iKioski. The pass is good for 24 hours or more days from the time of purchase. There are three areas ABC. The pass was good for train, metro, tram, bus, and ferry. With the tram covering most of the City and with multiple trams per hour, it was the best way to get around. And very affordable. You can see many of the sites (but do visit and explore) right from your window. The ride is smooth, quiet and not so fast you cannot enjoy the passing scenes. You get a real feel for the city from the comfort of a forward facing window seat.

    Helsinki to Stockholm
    Hassle free trip
    Enjoyed being on the deck, shopping the stores and relished the grand buffet that was served at 16:45 and 07:00 the next day. Though my room was a smaller one, there's no dearth of facilities and one can always relax on the upper deck.

    We had a tax-free coupon from our previous journey. With that, one way journey from Stockholm to Helsinki was just 32 euros in an A-category window cabin. We also booked special breakfasts. So the total was 76 euros - 5 euros using my Viking points (boats).

    The highlight of this trip was the sunset on departure from Stockholm. The special breakfast was as good as before.

    The ship was quite full. Probably, there was also a holiday week in Swedish schools as in many Finnish schools. So we skipped the crowded nightclub. The sunset was the best entertainment for us.

    The ride over to the Suomelinna island was smooth and hassle-free. The ferry went a time a pace that gave visitors a cage to capture the site and sceneries. It was on time on both journeys and seating was quite comfortable. Very nice ride. I will highly recommend .

    This train is very good to go on. It doesn’t go to Russia anymore I don’t think because of sanctions but if you ever go on this train it’s very good. The seats are comfortable and a lot of them have tables so you can sit and do work on a laptop or eat. You can also charge your phone, laptop, iPad, whatever because there are charger outlets next to the seats. You also have free wifi on the train.

    Helsinki Metro - or the subway - is very easy to use. Just buy your ticket from a ticket machine or the HSL mobile application before entering the escalator. Metro stations are marked with orange marks and a white letter M on them.

    Koivusaari metro station is the world's only undersea metro station and it has the second longest escalator (76 meters) in Finland.

    Helsinki Metro connects Helsinki and Espoo. There are beautiful sculptures and other artworks in many metro stations, especially in Espoo metro stations. It is an interesting art tour to travel by metro and stop at every station.

    This is by far the cheapest and most efficient way to travel from the Airport Helsinki to the main station in Helsinki. The trains are very comfortable, clean and modern.

    We are used to travel the route Helsinki -Travemunde, but sorry to say: year by year the quality has declined like the tail of a cow.
    The loong hours sitting in a car waiting for boarding are familiar, this time the ferry was other than we have booked. The overall atmosphere was nonchalant: no announcements in any language. No slippers neither toiletry bags in a suite! Luckily there was one ( yes, one ) bottle of beer, again, in a suite for four passengers. The compensation 30€ a person came to a real need.
    OK, we've used to the buffet meals on Finnlines, no one leaves hungry, however, nothing special, no cheese, a lot of everyday sweet things.
    Last but not least: the arrival time has gone, after an hour we got a note that we'll be late an another hour!
    The Mediterranian owner Grimaldi Lines has succeeded to bring back almost all bad experiences from the Mediterranean ship lines. I have advised them, Grimaldi and Finnlines to send someone to see how things are done by Silja, Viking, and Eckero Lines, obviously they haven't done that yet.

    We were staying a short walk away from Market Square, so it was an easy walk for us to the dock area to catch the ferry for the short 20/25 minute or so journey across to the fortress, with one interim stop in each direction.

    The ferry was efficient - arriving and leaving on time with two decks, one covered and one open, which is best in good weather as it gives you good views as you travel. On our way back, the weather became more windy, so upstairs was for the hardy explorers.

    They also serve a limited range of refreshments for you to buy for your journey.

    The agency sent out what seemed was a blast email cancelling my trip. No personalisation or anything, no explanation despite taking full payment days before.

    I had to ask them why, they explained the ferry broke down and required repairs. I had to quickly scramble accommodation and activities for Helsinki as I hadn't expected to stay in Helsinki at all.

    Aava Lines offers many different sea voyages. You can choose a very short boat transfer from Merisatama (N.B. this dock isn't at Kauppatori Market Square) to Uunisaari (Restaurant Uunisaari) and Liuskaluoto/Liuskasaari (Restaurant Skiffer and HSS Restaurant) or longer archipelago cruises. I especially love cruising to Pentala Archipelago Museum (read separate Tripadvisor reviews, departure points in Suomenoja, Suinonsalmi, Soukka/Klobben, Laurinlahti and Kivenlahti, Espoo) or outer islands (Stora Herrö, Rövaren and Gåsgrund). They have special transfers for bikers, too. Charter cruises from Kauppatori and Hakaniemi are also available but they are very expensive, e.g. round trip to Helsinki Biennial for 1-20 people 750 euros.

    Thoroughly enjoyed my visit to the lounge because it was so empty as there were hardly any flights due to Covid. Food selection was great, well presented and tasted fresh. Great time to relax before our next flight

    If you want to see Suomenlinna , but can’t walk far , this is the way to see the island fortress in comfort ! Mikko is a great person to show you the island , from his chauffeur ridden tricycle Taksi ! He’s also a mine of information and can tell you a lot about the island and its history . You can have a 45 min or a 90 min tour . He will meet you at the ferry terminal on Suomenlinna . A one-off experience !
