Good Location

Good Location
Good location, very close to attractions, rail station and bus terminal. From the airport T2 platform10 can take the Finair bus until last station, about half an hour journey and will stops directly in front of the hotel.

Good central location but need fixing details

Location, food, English speaking reception
The way shower cubicle is designed caused water to flood the general bathroom floor. Hotel left a water scraper in the shower area that initially stupefied us what that was for until after the shower did we realize it's meant to help hotel scrape water from outside the cubicle to be drained from the cubicle manhole. Had to squeeze dry the soaked bathroom floor towel to mop up the rest of bathroom floor as a hotel guest. Suggest that hotel get contractor to line the bottom of cubicle with a rubber strip to prevent water draining into the general bathroom in all the units as a one-time fix to raise hotel rating. Please treat this as constructive feedback to improve an otherwise good experience.

The Holiday Inn Helsinki City Centre is situated in the heart of the city, next to the railway station. No matter from which direction you arrive, the hotel is easy to find. Follow signs directing you to the central railway station. To access the parking (Eliel) from the main street of Helsinki, Mannerheimintie, turn left to Töölönlahdenkatu just after passing the Finlandia house on your left
