Rivoli Jardin Hotel

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The rooms are not up to date, but very quiet, clean and you get everything you need. So if you want to stay to visit Helsinki it is perfect. Located in the city center, not even 10min walk from the train station, it is ideal for a sightseeing trip. The front desk personell was very kind and helpful and the breakfast is absolutely great. I would book it again. Nothing to complain.

This hotel is a pure gem in Helsinki City. It’s location is fantastic. We’ve spent 3 amazing days in the city, taking in the shops, the Christmas Markets, street entertainment etc. We were able to walk everywhere, which made our trip so enjoyable - no timetables, queuing for transport, etc. We used two rooms in the hotel. We were greeted with a glass of bubbly on arrival. The staff are friendly and efficient. There is a lovely seating area in the foyer, where one can relax with a complimentary coffee/cake/biscuit. There are also Faser chocolates on the table/reception area to be sampled by the guests. The rooms are perfect, with extremely comfortable beds and pillows. Breakfast was a delight, with a great selection of hot and cold food and that so delicious fresh bread! We had to leave early for the airport on our departure day, but there was no problem going for breakfast 10 minutes early to give us that important few minutes extra to enjoy our third and final breakfast at this excellent hotel. Congratulations to the owners, Merry Christmas and every good wish for the future.

Booked at the last minute for my urgent business trip to Helsinki. The hotel is near to Esplanade park. The rooms are large and very comfortable. All rooms are provided with free WiFi and basic amenities like coffee maker. Bathroom was clean and had all basic stuff like soap shampoo and lotion. The buffet breakfast in the morning has good options to choose from. The staff is very friendly and helpful. I will was to reach post midnight so I called them to ask if check in will be any issue at 1 AM. They said they are open to welcome guests 24 hours. That was a relief. It was snowing and raining all throughout my stay. But the staff helped me with Taxi, restaurants nearby to eat and even umbrella. Very descent priced hotel.

We stayed here for 2 nights. Nice staff, clean warm room, had everything we needed, a kettle would have been nice in the room however free coffee, tea etc was served all day & night in the reception, with biscuits. Good Wi-Fi, quiet, nice breakfast. Great location near to everything.

The Hotel Rivoli Jardin significantly exceeded our expectations. Upon arrival we were given a very warm welcome and the staff even gave us some Prosecco as there was a small party going on! The rooms were quiet and comfortable. The WiFi was decent. The breakfast was superb - the selection initially looked a bit small but it’s just arranged in a very compact space. They have everything - fruit, salad, meats/fish, juices, tea/coffee, yogurt, cereal, croissants, bacon, sausage, scrambled egg etc. Complimentary coffee/biscuits/cake is available all day in the foyer and the location is unbelievably convenient - about a 10-15 minute walk from the Central Train Station and right next to the main Design/Shopping area of the city. The reception staff were also incredibly efficient and friendly to deal with. I would definitely be happy to stay here again.

Very good hotel by walking distance of center Helsinki. Rooms were cozy and bed was comfy. Staff was friendly and welcoming. We spend one night sat-sun, and there wasnt any noise even at the bar next door, wich was bit surprising! :) Breakfast was regular, but tasty. Very good overall at this price.

The hotel is about ten minutes walk from the main station, in one of the streets off the Esplanadi. We had a good sized room, with two comfortable beds and an L shaped sofa. The triple glazed windows open easily (I hate air-con). There's a heated towel-rail in the shower room, a bidet spray...and plenty of hot water. Plenty of storage space. A kettle and mugs are provided - you need to supply your tea, coffee etc. and there's a small fridge. (There's a good supermarket just a short distance up the road.) A work desk is provided, but the room lighting is poor. BBC World and Radio 4 are available, also CNN and Fox News...but the rest of the radio channels from all over the world are pop and easy listening. The rooms seem well sound proofed. A small lift is quick and efficient.The breakfast area is rather crowded. There's a reasonable choice of the usual cooked and cold meats, cheese, salads, cereals, fruit and breads, but nothing outstanding. Some more variety and imagination would be good. Staff were pleasant and helpful.

We enjoyed our stay at this lovely hotel, tucked on a quiet part of Helsinki but a short walk to city center. The hotel is located just a ten minute walk from the train station. The staff was very helpful and welcoming. The breakfast had many options. The room was comfortable and met all our needs. We couldn't ask for a better stay.

This hotel is well situated. You can walk to the markets, the harbour and the main shopping streets. The breakfast is very good and the dining areas pleasant. However, the rooms are not air conditioned. This means opening the windows and many rooms face an inner courtyard so your room is open for all to see. This was unpleasant. The room is very small but there was a nice little sofa which was nice. The reception people were always helpful and pleasant. And, there is a large grocery store diagonally across the street where you can pick up water and sandwiches or other meals. This comes in handy because restaurant prices are quite high.

Fantastic location Terrible bed remodeling (sheets folded badly in the feet) The 1-ply duvet placed on a double bed, the other placed in the lush and frayed closet, inconceivable for a hotel in Europe. Breakfast with sufficient, but uncommon assortment and disposition of the improvised ones (example sugar located far from hot drinks). For breakfast no table preparation, the cleaning is better than a mc/do overcrowded.
