Convenient Location

Would recommend Tue, Mar 10, 2015
The Holiday Inn in Helsinki City center is perhaps one of the most convenient places to stay if you travel by train and connect to an early flight. Literally a stone's cast from the central station, the hotel is only few hundred feet from the Finnair bus to the Helsinki-Vantaa airport. While taxis are convenient and fun, paying little over 6 euros for a bus surely beats ~40 euros for a cab if you are on a budget. Also, restaurant Vlatava across the square from the hotel serves a nice dinner, especially if you climb up to the bistro avoiding thus the pub crowd. Hotel is tidy, modern, and without extra gimmicks. Faithful to the (Northern) European standards, rooms are not spacious but meet the modest needs perfectly.

The location was excellent, staff great, free access to computers and internet was really nice.

Money saver

The Helsinki Card was a good value. You do have to use it to give you the value though! Half price on many things, like the ferry to Tallinn, and all the museums were free entrance.

Very convenient at a good price

Would recommend Tue, Jul 24, 2012
We found the place neat and comfortable, the staff courteous and capable, and the location was perfect. We were somewhere between sightseeing and shopping mode and it was easy walking distance to the train station, waterfront market, the Sunday flea markets, and the shopping streets - the people ferries to Suomenlinna and the beautiful edifaces. Under the same conditions we would certainly make this hotel a first choice.

Dining

Aino for dinner, a traditional Finnish restaurant And the waterfront market for breakfast, if you like sampling fresh food and traditional dishes. The choices are excellent in July.

perfect location

Would recommend Thu, Jul 5, 2012
got unexpected upgrade to executive room which was nice. Only downside was that although there is tea and coffee facilities in room you have either to go to the bar to ask for milk (given in cardboard cup) or the supermarket across the square and put it in mini bar. The railway station and bus station is immediately outside the front door which is great for the Finnair shuttle bus - it is a very busy and at times dirty place but doesn't impinge on the hotel.

Time saver

Get t he Finnair shuttle bus to and from the airport - quick, regular and efficient and to the door - only 6 ish euros. They are every 15 minutes and go to both terminals but start from the main terminal that we arrived on flight from Manchester from.

Great location and staff

Would recommend Thu, Sep 29, 2011
Stayed in executive room. Very comfortable. Staff on Reception staff lovely , very friendly and helpful. Excellent English. Room service too limited time available and restaurant expensive. Lots of cafes and good restaurants nearby. Internet free but very slow ! Sauna clean and small . No one there so good to relax . The bus and boat tours a must. Ask the staff. Hotel beside bus station ( bus to airport few steps away and cheap ) and rail station.

Entertainment hint

Leonardo's restaurant and Molly Malone's Pub , just a short walk . Market Square also a nice walk . Royal cruise is good from there. Take tram 3 T in a circle, stay on and it returns as 3B .

Great stay- nicer building than what you would expect from a Holiday Inn- very nice architecture. Clean rooms with everything you would expect. Very good breakfast. Central location with great access to the airport. But takes off 50 meters from the front door for 5 euros.

Great central location

Would recommend Wed, Jul 21, 2010
Hotel was in great central position, all means of transport readily available, only downside was that my reservation for a room with 2 single beds was not allocated and had to have a different room because hotel was full, but as this was an upgrade it was acceptable

Shopping hint

Use local supermarket not far from bus station for soft drinks and snacks, far cheaper than shops near all the tourist attractions.
