Like the Art in the Hotel, good decor of rooms and a very good bed, fresh organics products at breakfast.- good choices, Location is near the center and attractions, the parking place is very narrow. Let your car at home

Hello Ingrid,

it is wonderful to hear that your trip to Helka was a success! Great to hear that you found our central location and parking convenient. As you said, we have tried to put a lot of attention into the interior. The “Renovation Art” gallery we have available in our hotel is just one of the many highlights of our hotel’s art . Furniture and design is largely Finnish work from start to finish. In our lobby you can admire the wonderful paintings by Finnish artist Marita Kouhia as well as Artek's furniture and other Finnish design, from Marimekko to Iittala and Arabia tableware. We strive to procure all hotel products as responsibly as possible and always with a great unique Finnish touch to them. Helka's building was also designed by Wiivi Lönn, one of the most well-known Finnish female architects. Hope to see you again soon in Helsinki's pinkest hotel!

Regards,
Johannes / Reception,
Helka

Service was excellent, the place was beautiful and the breakfast was incredible. I liked that there was art all around the hotel. The reception helped to find places to eat. Will definitely visit again.

Breakfast is excellent and opulent. Although a lot of Construction Work was going on in the Neighborhood, I had an excellent sleep. 10 Minutes Walk from the Main Station - also with Suitcase possible.

Dear friend,

we are terribly sorry for the noise from the construction work. Currently the building next door is under renovation. We are communicating with the construction company to find ways to reduce the noise and for them to start later. The noise during the day is quite high unfortunately. Some customers might find this noise very disturbing. Construction is going on from Monday to Friday morning. The hotel can do little to nothing about this since it is done in the premises of the next-door building, nevertheless we are sorry about the noise. Great to hear that you got good night sleep regardless of this. Hope to see you again.

Sincerely,
Johannes / Reception,
Helka

We stayed 2 nights at Hotel Helka. The Check-in was as easy as possible due to self check-in. Staff was very reticent, but extremely friendly and helpful if needed. The hotel room was very nice and super clean, as was the bathroom. The breakfast was amazing! Lots of variety and vegan/vegetarian options. A mixture of traditional finnish specalties and traditional continental breakfast. The fruit was super fresh and everything was delicious (coffee, juices etc.). The wifi was password free and worked flawlessly. 5 min walk to the Helsinki main station. All in all an amazing and easy stay. (just the hallways could possibly need a little fresh up ;) )

They were extremely accommodating and allowed me to check-in on chosen hour, but also it has online safe system to check-in and check-out. The service was exceptional as well - recommend breakfasts there - tasty, Finnish food and great coffee. Would definitely send a friend & family there!
