Fabulous 8.8 From 1,318 reviews

Hotel Helka, Helsinki
A really nice place to stay
The hotel is amazingly renovated, with a deep eco-friendly touch. The comfort rooms do worth the supplement (for the bigger space and the late check-out, until 2PM). And last but not least, the free breakfast is absolutely gorgeous and the open sauna at the last floor really quite and comfy. Will come back there without hesitation for my next trip to Helsinki!

Excellent for introverts, whole stay without human interaction.

They nail the details!
It’s the small things. I arrived at 8am to drop off my luggage for storage pending checkin later that evening (as agreed beforehand). The reception—without my prompting—offered that I could instead check into my room early. This is just one of the many little details that this hotel takes care of more than most. The room I got was on the tiny side by any measures. I got the cheapest but even then you expect the room to be a little bigger than a shoe. Size aside, it was neat and the bathroom was spotless. The later—as well as the service—made me forgive the size of the room. The breakfast also had a few creative items beyond the usual suspects. I will very likely return to Helka.
