About Hellsten Helsinki Senate, Helsinki

5 minutes to the ferries

Nestled in the upscale Katajanokka neighborhood, the Hellsten Helsinki Senate aparthotel places you a 5-minute walk from the Tallinn and Stockholm ferries. The Orthodox Uspenski Cathedral, Presidential Palace, and Kauppatori market square are a pleasant 10-minute stroll away.

A stroll down Esplanadi

Nice and helpful staff
Really friendly and helpful staff. They deserve 4 stars! But they overbooked our room and we had to move. Also the kitchen in the apartment wasn't cleaned, but the rest was really nice :-)

A Traveler, us3 night romance trip
Hellsten Helsinki Senate, Helsinki
Out-of-the-way, under-staffed at reception, after checking-in, we did not even stay at the hotel because we were so disappointed. I suggest that "" take it off your list of Helsinki hotels.
