Hellsten Espoo

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Free wi-fi , free parking, and only 10 min walk to train station, so easy to move around Helsinki. Quiet neighbourhood, so you can sleep well. Pretty comfortable bed, decent breakfast and friendly staff. For the price, a good place to stay, if you don't want to be in the middle of Helsinki area.

Superficially, this is not at all a bad option. Check-in was efficient and pleasant, the room was actually a suite with a living area (complete with basic kitchen) and a separate bedroom. There was even a sauna off the shower room. My Big Three requirements were fulfilled: comfortable bed (by Nordic standards of single duvets), good shower (very good, in fact) and blackout in the bedroom. The problem - as mentioned in other reviews - is that it's dirty. I don't mind that they only clean between stays, not during, that's part of keeping the price reasonable, What is unacceptable is that the fixtures and fittings are worn and exceedingly grubby. Having stayed in the room, I extrapolated breakfast and gave it a miss... Location wise, it was OK for me because I was on business nearby. Otherwise, there is a major shopping centre with food outlets which sits above a major station about 1.3 km away. Perhaps a 10 minute walk. There is nothing else around.

Do not stay in this Hotel. Breakfast is pathetic, Cleaning is practically not done, Window and Door seals are damaged hence room becomes massive cold and the staff has a don't care attitude. Complete waste of money.

Good room with kitchen and private sauna. Price very good for 4 people. Was easy to find by car, car parking in front of hotell (special area). quiet outside. The breakfast was goof for 3 star hotell.

We enjoyed our stay in Hellsten Espoo. The atmosphere was relaxed and cosy. Great and enthusiast staff. The Room had all we needed to make our stay comfortable. Great location. Easy and enough parking provided.

First and Last Time I stayed at this hotel. People at reception have been great however room was extremly smelly and not really clean. It is an apartment hotel, so a small little kitchenette was there, the microwave was pretty dirty. The toilet could have used a proper cleaning.

Free parking. Near the hotel. Very quiet in the hotel. Good room with sauna. Purely. After walks through the autumn Helsinki it is very pleasant to bask in the sauna. The kitchen has everything you need. There was a kettle, a coffee maker. Comfortable sofa and bed.In room was fresh air, but not cold. The view from window was on the park. A large shopping center can be reached on foot. Very good breakfast. My husband liked it))). Free Wi-Fi. The hotel has a "public" sauna. Everyone can book it for an hour.

Excellent hotel, friendly staff, good and big parking, excellent breakfasts. It was a great trip. Near a large shopping center, in 10 km is the center of Helsinki. Quiet and peaceful place. Quite clean rooms, there is an elevator.

The kitchen was good, the room was big. Looked like an apartment. There was also a table to do work on computer. We'll stay there again. It is a quite cheap place (according to the prices in Helsinki, you can't expect better quality than this. Treavelling by car, very good location.

A nice play to stay in Helsinki if you come here by car. The hotel is situated rather far from the city center, but it is easy to find it and there is no problems with parking. the brakfast was perfect everyone was satisfied. The room also was very nice
