Great Easter weekend stay

Review of Hotel Fabian
5.0 of 5 bubblesReviewed 3 Apr 2024via mobile
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.

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.

It is a heartwarming to hear that you enjoyed your time as our guest. It was rewarding for us to hear that you’ve enjoyed the treats from our kitchen and especially enjoyed the room as well as the comfy bed.
A kettle and a tea set are included in the equipment of our style and lux rooms.

It was our pleasure to be able to recommend restaurant Savotta to you. I am happy to hear that their food also met your expectations.
I hope that you had a wonderful trip also in Lapland!
