Have you ever seen the movie "Shining"? This hotel was like going back to the 60's or 70's. Our room was situated in the "Forest Wing". It was a very long walk from the parking lot. Everything was a little bit dirty and old. Bad pillows, rough bed and cold room. Breakfast was good but didn't save the whole experience.... More

Personally, I loved my overnight stay here! We booked a superior suite with view to the sea. Absolutely breathtaking to wake up to and well worth it. The room seemed a bit dated (furniture), with a horribly bland mattress, and although the bathroom seemed to look nice at first sight (at night), in the morning I saw quite a bit... More

This was our second stay in hotel Rantapuisto. We were here last summer and were quite pleased, so we returned. This time the experience was even more enjoyable. We had a family celebration for 35 people in Kellariravintola (downstairs). We needed good USB access for our computer for the program, that worked perfectly. We also had ordered a special menu...

The lunch and dinner were not very good, and there were no selection of coffee. The location of the hotel was nice, but the rooms in the forest wing were old and dated. The rooms in the main building were a lot better!

I have booked this hotel due to its value for money. It is not too close to the city centre, however it's easily reached by public transport. I would not recommend taxi, as we had to pay a small fortune from Helsinki port to the hotel. If you really are not sure about how to get there by public transport,... More

We held an important multinational conference and workshop at this astonishingly lovely hotel. They had everything we needed. Properly equipped conference facilities and meeting rooms with rock steady fast internet. A great dinning room with tasty local dishes. The staff were cheerfully competent and everybody felt welcome and looked after. Finally sort yourself out time in their sauna followed by... More

The Rantapuisto has a beautiful setting which the building enhances. Glass and timber in the open forest. Grassy slopes leading down to the rocky shore. areas of grass and trees between the wings of the hotel with seats and tables for adults and play equipment for children. There was a large reception area with comfortable seats and small tables. Reception... More

I have stayed at this hotel on many occasions while studying in Helsinki. The reception staff are always very welcoming and friendly, especially Emma. The rooms are very clean and comfortable. The sea view is lovely to wake up to. The breakfast is varied and plentiful.

It is in a beautiful location by the sea and lots of green areas around about half an hour to Helsinki city center. I had a very nice recently renovated room. The only thing to complain was the lack of a proper working desk. I ate there lunch and dinner, the food was excellent classical Finnish food. Also the breakfast... More
