Hellsten Helsinki Senate3.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
Hellsten Helsinki Senate is tucked in nice and quiet neighborhood conveniently connects you to museums, shops with tram 4. Or you can take a walk to the waterfront, city market and down the Esplanade.
The Hellsten Helsinki Senate is a great option with the perfect location in the port area blocks from Senate Square, Uspenski Cathedral, and the whole downtown area. It was spacious, private, and fairly quiet. The trolley is a block away and restaurants and shopping close by. The staff was helpful. I look forward to stay there again and would recommend it for either short or long stays.
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.
We are so glad we found this place. This was our first trip to Helsinki and we loved the city and our apartment. The location was perfect, only a couple of blocks from public transportation and a little market. Easy walking distance to downtown. Neighborhood was safe and very quiet. The room was just what we needed; good sleeping arrangements, full bathrooms, plenty of space and a nice little kitchen. The building was secure and the keys were waiting for us when we arrived. We would definitely stay there again any time and would recommend it to others.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Great location in a convenient, picturesque, quiet neighborhood minutes from downtown Helsinki. Adjacent to convenient trams giving access to the entire city. Walking distance from the Viking Cruise ship terminal. There is a small market open until 9pm around the corner for groceries. It was a little unusual for us to have no direct personal contact at checkin/checkout, but following the instructions worked like a charm. The apartment met our needs. The laundry was a big help--we used it during both of our stays. Some minor repairs on the kitchen countertop and some lubricant on the noisy gate would be an improvement, but we would definitely stay here again if we return to the city. Overall a great value which enhanced our enjoyment of Helsinki.
