            The room was very clean. And the service in lobby was good.

            The breakfast. Although there is enough choice, essential parts were either tastless or not tasting very good. For instance the orangejuice was terrible and the scrambled eggs were not much better. Also the bacon could improve substantially.

            Internet connection was not working and the bathroom was extremely small

            Overall the staying at the hotel was nice. Service and room was good too! Breakfast is good!

          • Single
            8.8

            A really perfect hotel at the city center: modern, comfortable, reasonably priced by the Helsinki standards. I stayed there two times and got everything I needed of a hotel.

          • Family with children
            7.8

            Great location. Although close to a road, the traffic noise didn't disturb. Breakfast basic and good. Nice design in hotel. Free WiFi worked well.

            Room was quite small, but I was travelling with my young nephew so we fitted in.

            everything was great

            the sound of the air conditioning (even in the turn off mode) was a bit loud.

          • Single
            7.8

            I liked the location, close to the city center. Friendly stuff, and clean and comfortable rooms.

            Quite small rooms

          • Single
            7.8

            The idea of the hotel interior is Finnish design and nature. Stylish and cool. Ten minutes walk to railway station. Bus station and metro are even nearer. Almost in the city center but also near to the gorgeous Hietaniemi Cemetery and Hietaniemi beach. Should try the open all day sauna sometime. - I was very well served in the restaurant Helkan keittiö. Delicious home made apple cake with coffee. Good quality-price ratio.

            Breakfast fas excellent. Also the cleanliness was very nice and you can fell that you are welcome there.

            Staff was helpful and pleasant. Hotel was clean and location is quite central.

            Impossible to lower the temperature of the room enough. Men's sauna was unfortunately broken. Breakfast was just above average.

            Hotel Helka has good location and the surroundings are nice

          • Group of friends
            9.6

            We arrived in Helsinki at 5 A.M. and there was rain. We had no idea what to do and went to the hotel to leave our luggage there until check- in. The guy on reception was so nice that he gave us a room!!! So we could rest normally in the morning and then proceed sightseeing. Don't know what we would do without him because of this weather. Everything else was also perfect. Not the first time in this hotel and definitely not the last!

          • Group of friends
            7.4

            It was my second stay at this hotel. I like breakfast, sauna, the possibility to leave your luggage before or after stay, frige, hear-dryer.

            When you do open the window you may hear the noise from the street, I booked the room using my name, but room was found only then I told the name of the second guest.
