Dear mobidi, Thank you for your stay and for your very important feedback concerning the problems at our breakfast 29.8.2014. I do apologize deeply that these events ever took place at all.

As many reviews have stated this hotel could not be better located. It is adjacent to the railway station with the city bus transfer point in front, including the stop for the Finnair airport bus. The tram is less than a block away, and there is a metro station there. It is within walking distance of most sites in central...

Despite the many positive reports I found this hotel disappointing in many respects. I am a gold elite IHG member and chose this hotel out of loyalty to the Holiday Inn brand. Yes, the location is excellent. It is only a one minute walk from the airport to city Finnair bus. It is central with a supermarket nearby and easy...

Dear IHG Rewards gold elite member Mr MarkLaurence, Thank you for your stay and for your most valuable feedback concerning your visit.

Not the prettiest part of town but there is easy access from the hotel to the main railway station, the Finnair airport bus and city trams. The hotel provides the level of comfort expected of a Holiday Inn, large room, good beds and bathroom. Helpful staff. From here it is an easy walk to the market square (Kauppatori) on the...

Great stay at this hotel, very handy for all the sights in Helsinki and next to the Finnair airport bus stop. We stayed during a heatwave and the rooms despite air con were a little warm. We were upgraded to executive room which was lovely-lots of wood! Great shower/bathroom and very clean.

If you want a central city centre hotel in Helsinki that is near the main railway station, which has a good restaurant for both breakfast and an evening meal, that has good food and local beer, the hotel is clean, the rooms are nice, the staff very polite and helpful and is not too expensive (for a Nordic capital city)...
