Ideal location and apartment

I didn't realise that it was a serviced apartment and it was ideal - even better for a small group.... See full review

Hotel not quite as reoresented

The hotel showed coaches in the room, there were none very small chairs, not comfortable. The room service came one day, did nothing, and never cleaned the room or emptied the trash. The trash bin was over flowing, by the end of the trip. Good location friendly staff, but no trash removal or never changing any sheets. I took a few towels from hallway so I was able to have clean towels. We swept the floor and cleaned ourselves.

A Very nice stay in Helsinki

Great location convenient to downtown right on a tram stop. Best value in Helsinki on a reasonable budget. Keep in mind this is Not serviced during your stay (no fresh towels or cleanup) and check-in can be tricky without a cel phone to call in (there are no staff on site). Besides that it's great with separate living room and kitchen from the bedroom. Will use Hellstan again if returning to Helsinki.

Money-saving tip: Not Applicable

Buy the transit pass at the Airport to cover your stay! You will use the public transit more than you think And it adds up quickly (at 2.5 euro per person/per trip) if buying individual rides.

Excellent apartment close to town

My wife and I were in Helsinki for about 5 days and we loved this place. The kitchen made this place fantastic. We were able to cook meals instead of going out all of the time. I was gone for 6 weeks so it was nice to eat in every once and a while. Free washing machine and dryer and free use of the sauna. The only complaint (if you can call it that) was that there wasn't any breakfast but with the kitchen, it didn't matter. We will definitely stay here again if we return to Helsinki.

Good value in Helsinki

Room was fairly basic but a good size and clean. Location was quite good, an easy 10 minute walk or short tram ride to the main downtown area. Full kitchenette and grocery store two blocks away. Bathroom was good with a decent shower. In quiet area. Price was excellent for pricey Helsinki. Reception is self-service with a code to get your key and a phone number for any concerns, so a bit self service. Overall, good value for your money in Finland.

Big Appartment and good value

Helsinki was a bit of a surprise, lovely city, quite compact which made getting to various areas easy, waterfront very attractive, tour through parliament was great. Hydrofoil trip to Tallin was quite rough which was not expected.
