We stayed twice in hotel Helka this summerholiday. And we loved both of our stayings. Both rooms were wonderful, but most of all we enjoyed the atmosphere in the hotel. And there is a great sauna and a very excellent breakfast. So when we ever return to Helsinki, we certainly will see ourselves back in this fantastic hotel!

This cozy, quiet, clean hotel is located near the Kamppi shopping centre, just a walking distance away from all the major sights and attractions in Helsinki. I stayed in the single comfort room which was clean and roomy and came with slippers and a bathrobe. The THANN amenities were lovely. A delicious breakfast with a huge number of tasty options was included. I really enjoyed my stay and will be coming again.

Hi, thank you so much for the review. As you said our hotel is just around the corner from many sights and attractions of Helsinki. The THANN amenities are certainly popular with our customers and you can buy them from for example Stockmann (quite close to hotel also!). We are glad to hear that the trip went well. Welcome back anytime ;) Sincerely, Johannes / Reception, Helka

A centrally located hotel, comfortable, clean, with friendly staff. Excellent breakfast, silent and practical. The building is anonymous, but rationally exploited and welcoming. I would recommend as a good base for visiting the city.

We spent a weekend at Hotel Helka and it was a great experience. The hotel is located very close to the city center, which is perfect for getting to know the city. The breakfast was superb, with a large variety of fresh local dishes. Even though the street nearby is currently under construction, we hardly were disturbed by it while in the room. The room was spacious and cozy.

Hi, thank you for your understanding on the construction site issue. Unfortunately, at the moment, renovations are currently being done in the neighboring building. Hopefully, the noisier work will be completed soon, so that Pohjoinen Rautatiekatu becomes quieter again. Nice, to hear though, that the trip was successful despite the renovation sound! All but a welcome to Helka again. Regards, Johannes / Reception, Helka
