College dorm from the 70s. For $20 more you get a much nicer hotel.

Simple room for decent price.

Arthur is very basic hotel in the heart of Helsinki. You have to keep in mind that Helsinki is very expensive city and if you aren't willing to put 90% of your travel budget to your hotel then Arthur is for you. You only put around 80% of your travel budget towards hotel by staying there. Arthur is one of the cheapest if not the cheapest hotel in town. And you do get what you pay for. Room is clean and very small. It feels more like staying at your aunties than at a hotel. Beds are comfortable and clean, had a wonderful good night sleep there. As long as you keep in mind that Helsinki is very expensive city and you aren't willing to spend all your money for a hotel then you will be perfectly fine at Arthur. Now if this was any other city than Helsinki one could be pretty upset with the cost and what you get for it. Breakfast is basic Finnish breakfast, ryebreads, oatmeal, toast, coffee and canned fruit.

Dining tip: Short walk from hotel

Cafe Esplanad has the best, biggest and sweetest, Finnish pastries in town. You will be impressed with the size of korvapuusti, cinnamon roll, and how good it tastes. Highly recommended for an afternoon snack or an evening coffee.

The wrong night

On teh positive side: The staff were very friendly and efficient, and the room was beautifully clean. The hotel is nicely centrally located and a short walk from the station.The food I had in the hotel restaurant was great. On the downside, I've taken away some points on the comfort rating. Some teenypop singer was playing in Helsinki the night I was there and the hotel was full of teeny fans. A crowd of lads drinking cheap beer and smoking outside the entrance is not a good look, and the shrieking running back and forth that they and the girls carried on in the corridors into the wee small hours didn't help my sleep. The morning was interupted by a loud truck taking away the garbage at about 4:30 a.m., whose driver felt the need to sound the horn as a departure gesture. Thanks! The garbage was apparently taken away again at about 5:30 a.m. Thanks again! I was feeling quite shabby by the time my own alarm chipped in with some noise of its own. Okay, I know I sound like an old whinger, but I had a business meeting the next morning and wanted to be fresh for that. I'd still recommend the hotel, but would also recommend taking some earplugs in case the nocturnal noise is not a one off.

Close to the Metro & Trains

The Arthur Helsinki hotel was average and would have liked some air-conditioning. The breakfast was excellant. Only about 200 ft to the Metro-Subway system and about 300 yards from the Central Bus and train station and another access to the Subway system. A good value for location.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Get a daily metro pass for the time you are there. We paid about $40/per for a three day pass that gets you unlimited access on Subway, buses, streetcars and local trains in the Helsinki area.

Nice location for casual traveler

If you might want to have a spacious bed, and bath tab, it is not the place to stay. I myself is small enough to fit in the bed, and OK with only shower. Location is very good, Breakfast is good enough. Sauna service is fine.
