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.
