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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

Great location only 10mins to senate square/ cathedral. There is also a park 2 mins from the hotel (leave the hotel and turn left you can’t miss it) Staff were so friendly throughout our stay and the atmosphere was very peaceful and relaxed which we loved. Breakfast is more on the basic side but still plenty of options with croissants, toast, smoothies, juice, cereal and cold meats. Personally would prefer more of a fruit selection but loved their homemade jams. Also loved that breakfast goes to 11:30 on weekends so we got a nice lie in and 10am weekdays. Games and books in reception and comfy sofas. The room was great, plenty of space as well as robes, mini fridge, shampoo and shower gel provided. Hairdryer too and we got a kettle on request. Comfy beds and the shower was very good. Quiet room (508) never heard a sound through the night. No problem leaving our bags for the day as our flight was late. Felt it was all great value for money considering the higher prices of Finland. Would absolutely recommend.

Hotel's Favourite
I stayed in hotel Fabian July 2022, and it was a lovely experience. The location of the hotel was great, however there currently is large scale construction opposite the hotel. I was generally up and away by the time the construction started so it didn’t bother me in the morning, and the soundproofing of the building was adequate. The breakfast included in the room was lovely, with fresh fruit, smoothies and juices. It felt like a healthy breakfast with a good variety to choose from. I used the mini fridge during my stay, which is on the pricey side, as are all establishments in Helsinki city centre (All prices are clearly stated in the room, though) - if you want to buy cheaper alcohol there is a Alko shop next to Hotel Fabian. There is also a grocery story just next to the hotel, on the side of Kasarmitori. The hotel is also very close to all the sights one would want to visit, such as Esplandinpuisto, Kauppatori - where boats leave to Korkeasaari (Zoo) and Soumenlinna (military fortress island). Senaatin Tori is also close, where you can see the famous Tuomionkirkko church. Electric scooters are readily available and you can also quickly get to sites like the famous Oodi Library. On my final day I was very hungover and the staff kindly arranged for late check-out, and the service was friendly - with everyone being able to accommodate me speaking English. Apologies to the two young girls in the morning for having to deal with my very hungover checkout, haha! Thanks for the stay, I will probably stay here again next time I visit Helsinki :) I forgot to take photos of the room, but this is one showing the nice design in the entrance and large mirrors, and a good amount of storage in the cupboards - the room also had a desk and mirror in front of it which was useful for doing one’s hair, the bathroom also had a plug for hair styling equipment and had a hair dryer available.

We absolutely loved this hotel. We wish we could have stayed longer. We traveled with our four children and booked two rooms side-by-side. From the beginning, the hotel was wonderful, reaching out to provide options of room configurations. When we arrived, the rooms exceeded our expectations. Super comfortable and very spacious, and an excellent location. We walked to one of the best dinners we've had and also walked to the ferry to take a short trip over to Suomenlinna. Would absolutely stay here again.

We had a wonderful two-night stay at Hotel Fabian! We really enjoyed our time in Helsinki and would definitely stay here again. - The staff were great! Everyone was very welcoming and helpful. - The location is good. Short walk to Senate Square, the Christmas Market, Uspenski Cathedral, and other sites. And short walk restaurants, a market, etc. - The breakfast Buffett was perfect. Many healthy choices were on offer and it was always a calm atmosphere -a very nice way to start the day. - Our room was on the top floor. It was quiet and very cozy. We definitely look forward to our next stay at Hotel Fabian!

Stayed here for a night having been up In Ivalo for a few days. Great base to explore the city, not far to walk from the station, close to shops, port and super indoor market place. Room was clean, spacious and quiet with really comfy bed. No tea making facilities in room but didn’t matter for 1 night. Super choice for breakfast, the salmon was amazing. Asked for recommendations for dinner and had a super meal in Savotta only 10 minutes walk away.

One of our best hotel stays. The staff are friendly and helpful, especially the housekeeping who went out of their way and the breakfast person who was so skilled. The room was totally quiet, and the beds were not too soft/not too hard. The breakfast was amazing with lots of healthy fresh choices for everyone. The location is perfect for walking all around central Helsinki. Highly recommend this hotel.

This hotel is conveniently located four blocks from the Esplanade in this highly-walkable city. The room was spacious, quiet, comfortable, and well-appointed. The bathroom was highly functional and sized for ease of movement. The standard European breakfast is available in a small room with more seating available in the courtyard. As a first-time visitor to this city, this hotel exceeded my expectations.
