Hellsten Helsinki Parliament

3.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

it has an excellent location that makes it easy to take the finnair city bus to and from the airport. it is also easy to take the tram, bus, and other transportation to reach the other parts of the city. the museum is a few steps away, shopping and other places of interest can be easily reached via walking or taking the tram.

The apartment hotel is well situated. Only 5 minutes walking from the "Hesperian Park" Finnair bus stop. Also at walking distance from the center. Comfortable stay. The restaurant opposite to the apartment hotel offers 10% discount on the breakfast.

Must be one of the best hotels for its price. Clean, spacious, and cosy studio right next to the city center with own kitchen and utensils. Cafe across the street. Very convenient to get around. Highly recommended.

This aparthotel is comfortable, clean and well situated in the heart of Helsinki. I recommend it for your next stay with your family or friends for 4 persons. We appreciate the style of the apartment that makes you feel as if you were be living in Helsinki for a long time.

The property has a great location. You can walk to central Helsinki in 10 minutes. The studio was pretty spacious with a kitchen annex. They have a great automated check in/out & luggage storage system if you are here outside working hours. Highly recommended!

I visited the Hellsten Helsinki Parliament several times in at least 5 years but the furniture is getting more and more worn out and the cleanliness gets from visit to visit more questionable. It is a pity because the hotel is so perfectly situated near the city centre.

We had an apartment (on the C side, 3rd floor) for three persons. When we arrived, it was not properly prepared, it didn’t have linens for the couch. When they brought the linens they were too small. The linens are old, cushions very bad, bathroom really looks poor, with rust and broken tiles. For four days we didn’t have any cleaning. The receptionist was not friendly at all. Old, creepy and crapy place. On the positive side - it is well located.

I booked 6 night's at the Hellsten Parliment after reading TripAdvisor's reviews. This large, clean, quiet, centrally located, comfortably furnished apartment with kitchenette, was ideal. I experience issues with sodium with restaurant food & it was perfect that I could prepare my food, grocery store down the block, Reception is closed Sundays & evenings, no room service or breakfast but you can use a breakfast discount across the street, the room is cleaned before you arrive & since I was here for 6 night's my room was cleaned during my stay - excellent value I would definitely rebook this hotel for future trips to Helskini.

This was our second time staying here and we actually had the exact same room as we did two years ago. They are apartment-style rooms with a small kitchen - similar feel to an AirBNB. We love the location - very quiet but really close (walking distance) to a lot of things we wanted to see. Also walking distance to the central railway station and several tram stops. The room is decent and cute - my only complaint is that the beds are super tiny and not comfortable. The pillows are also very small. FYI - because these are apartment-style rooms, they do not clean your room or replace towels unless you stay longer than 5 nights. We prefer it like that, so it worked really well for us. We would definitely stay here again.

I want write a sincere Thank You to the management and staff of the hotel! The hotel showed the they cared more about solutions than carved in stone policies. They were intuitive and knowledgeable about a wide range of needs and offered solutions before the next question was even asked! Very professional customer service hotel! This hotel has a great location, excellent rooms and super staff! They made us feel safe, welcome and supported on our first visit to Helsinki and would happily recommend to other travelers! Thank you for making a difficult trip a bit more comfortable!! Kiitos, olette erinomaisia!
