Good location.

Hellsten Helsinki Senate, Helsinki
Nice size apartment well located
Good size apartment in a nice area with a small kitchenette and fridge. Good if you plan to eat breakfast there or cook a little. Pro: Good Size with 3 rooms+bathroom, kitchenette, great friendly staff, free laundry room (just buy your detergent in the store or from the staff at 1 euro per load - I didn't use it), good and fast wifi, comfortable, very close to the Viking cruise terminal and to the tram 4 and 5 routes (1 small block), weekly cleaning, very close to tourist attractions, free luggage storage room that allowed us to keep sightseeing until the time of our cruise. Cons: No safe box, limited channels in the TV, smaller curtains in some windows that do not fully cover, it may get noisy during weekends from the neighbors, elevators is old and stops in between floors so you have to drag luggage half floors through stairs (tip go always one floor above yours), no restaurants or food stores in the immediate vicinity but a few blocks away Overall i twas a great stay and would definitely stay here again. The staff is very nice and helpful with visiting tips. The tram to main attractions 50 feet away was a big plus for us.

Nice apartment for a first time visitor
It was a very short trip, basically an overnight layover on my way back to the US. People are super nice in Helsinki and it was a pleasant surprise. With regards to Hotel, management was very courteous and a pleasure to work with, the hotel itself had a few issues (in my opinion) ... the elevator doesn't stop in every floor, which was annoying since I was carrying very heavy luggage and had to either go up stairs or down, in order to reach elevator. The other issue was the bathroom, for some reason it leaked a lot of water on the floor ... seems like it might have problems with seals (not a biggie, but always gotta be careful with water on tiles). Regarding the location, great walk during day, but won't find restaurants or pubs close by ... it's super quiet at night, which is good but a bit creepy walking by yourself. The area seems very safe though.
