Hotel Helka, Helsinki
Awesome place. The best!
The hotel is very well located, within walking distance to everything you need to see in Helsinki. Modern, great service, very comfortable. Breakfast is just fantastic!!! I highly recommend.

Hotel Helka, Helsinki
Hotel Helka is centrally located and within walking distance of many of the main sites in Helsinki. Helsinki Art Museum is a block away. Kampii shopping mall is two blocks away and just past it is Amos Rex. All of the staff were very nice and helpful. Excellent breakfast. There is not a restaurant for lunch or dinner but the bar serves sandwiches, soup, and salad. Many restaurants, though, nearby. I highly recommend this hotel.

Very good choice
This is a very nice hotel. I stayed in a Comfort room, and I would absolutely recommend doing so for the slightly better space and facilities (according to the Web site). The hotel is extremely clean. The breakfast spread is diverse and maintained well. (The breakfast area is also very elegant, with a few fake tree trunks on one side adding very much to the look.) The sauna is nice (but sadly, did not include birch branches!). They provided Thann toiletries, including body lotion. The room included a sauna robe and slippers. The main train station is only a 10-15 minute walk away. All of the main parts of central Helsinki are easy to get to (even by foot). There's plentiful public transit nearby: It's only two minutes from the closest entrance to the Kamppi metro/bus station and mall, including the very good K-Supermarket. The hotel staff are helpful, friendly, and very responsive by email. A few small issues I reported were handled very quickly (though one never received a reply). The Wifi is fast and has no login at all, which is very nice. My only slight annoyance was that the hotel made a really big deal out of their "Finnish design", and yes, they do have a few Finnish furniture items. But these weren't particularly fancy ones. I suspect to most travelers, it would have been indistinguishable from a room furnished entirely at IKEA. Overall, it was a great place to spend a few days, and I would return without hesitation.
