Great stay in Helsinki

The apartment was very spacious. All staff were pleasant and did their job well. Great location for easy access to town centre and transport and yet very quiet.
So good we booked extra nights.

Overpriced, with no service

It was available on a busy weekend, but that's not surprising given its mediocrity. Quiet.
Entirely unstaffed (i.e. no service): no cleaning was done during my stay; no one was on reception at any time, so there was no one to complain to about the lack of soap/smell of drains/lack of room information etc.. We even had to call another hotel in order to get access. The facilities were there of an upmarket youth hostel, at the price of a four star hotel.

this is an apartment, no staff at reception, comfy

location, comfort, price
Nobody is on reception after17:00 and all weekend. There is a number to call from the intercom but it takes time to work through. Otherwise the apartment is comfortable, spacious. Sauna. Wonderful location.

Nice Apartment Hotel

Located 20min walk to city center; Quite place; well equipped kitchen
*First of all, If you book this hotel via Agoda, you have to contact this hotel by mail yourself (find it yourself in their webpage) after booking, as Agoda is not giving your email address to the hotel, thus you could not receive their check-in arrangement email. The location is very good. It's a local living area. Although it's 20min walk away from the city center, but it gives you a quite and cozy environment. If you rent a car, the street of the hotel is Zone2, which mean you can pay lesser parking fee than in the city center. If you are too lazy to walk, you can take a bus to the city center, there is a but stop and train station nearby. There is supermarket just a street down and you can buy your foods for dinner and breakfast and cook it in the suite. You can also walk 5min to the harbour, which has a great scenic view. The bed is a spring-coil bed, but maybe it's too old, it sucks your whole body down when you sleep on it (we are slim people!), which gave us a back-pain after the stay.

Lovely, quiet hotel in heritage area

Well-appointed rooms, quiet location and good access by tram.
The Hellsten Senate has two buildings: old and new. The old is a gorgeous, well-maintained art nouveau building with well-appointed rooms. Choose this one if you can. My first room in the new building was large and well-appointed but had no character, was on ground level with no privacy from the street and had almost no wireless internet. The curtains were inadequate and in poor repair so this made the situation more awkward. I moved to the old building and was much happier. The reception is open only during the day, but the 'remote control' reception from Hellsten's other hotel is flawless and efficient. Don't be put off by the limited reception hours. The area, really an island, Katajanokka, is quiet and architecturally notable. It is not an area for nightlife, although I highly recommend the restaurant Wellamo which is a short walk from the hotel, and there is a small and cosy bar between the tram stop and the hotel. The price I paid for the hotel was very good indeed, and unequaled in value on the rest of my trip.

Great room

nice and warm, nice to be self contained.
good location, close to the ferries, and waterfront, about a 15 minute walk into town.

Reasonable priced apartment

spacious, good facilities for cooking
the apartment is a bit far from the vr station, and it's not easy to locate the building's main entrance. the building looks quite old, but it's tidy and spacious, overall a good pick if you need to stay long and travel to the nearby pier.
