Hotel Helka is a great place to stay in Helsinki. Close to everything including the central train station. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. The breakfast included in the room rate was excellent, lots of choices and good hours of operation. Highly recommended.

Exceptional 10.0
I would definitely stay at this hotel next time in Helsinki. Staff was super friendly, it was well located, breakfast was good, bed was comfortable, the temperature was nice. I was quite surprised by the fact that the bed in the single room was a single bed, and the size of the bathroom was quite small - but even when I am not a small person, I had a great night sleep and no problems whatsoever, just surprising at first!

Jenna and everyone on staff were so helpful. We needed help getting laundry done. They sorted it out! We needed a fan, done. We needed to stay an extra night at the last minute, they were able to make it happen. Super great! Also being able to use Netflix on the tv was great too.
