As per most reviews, you really can't go past this Holiday Inn for location. Within cooee of the station and bus terminal, it's perfect for anyone wanting to get around easily. The staff were all terribly helpful and our rooms was clean and spacious. (also one of the better hotel beds I've slept on, really comfortable). We didnt have breakfast...

This Holiday Inn is directly behind the train station and very convenient to Helsinki's excellent and efficient public transport. Also easy walking distance to Senate Square and Esplanadi areas. Rooms quiet, very clean and good sized for European norms. Room furnishings are a bit nicer that US equivalent Holiday Inn hotels. The breakfast buffet has a lot of options. While...

We stayed here in Sept. 2016 so apologies for the delayed review. We spent 12 nights there on a bed and breakfast basis. The hotel is beside the Mainline Train station and the Local train connects to the Airport. There's a local bus terminal outside the hotel with good choices to the suburbs and the Airport. The staff were excellent,...

Stayed for two nights. Located perfectl, right at the train station in the city center with direct connection to the airport. One downside: we were not able to open the window in our room, which was quite hot.

Ok hotel, not very spacious room. Strange solution with the lights, making it impossible to have bed light on as the last light before sleep (!). Nice and clean. Breakfast limited and very chaotic when hotel is full. Good to be able to select down/feather pillows.

The advantage of this hotels is the convenience next to the railway line. We had late flight in and 24 hours in Helsinki. We trained from airport (very easy) to the main station. and then walk next door. Explored the city then back on the train that night. The hotel price was good, check in and service.

This is just what you need. Clean comfortable efficient good food good bed no hassles.

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.
