Near town centre, parking facilities, nice rooms.
A nice hotel, near the railway station and town centre. Parking near by. Rooms ok, ample breakfast, although the breakfast room was a little too full (of people). One drawback was that the person at the reception desk when we arrived did not speak Swedish, when we checked out the desk was occupied by a Swedish-speaking person. We may choose this hotel again, if we visit Helsinki.

Sokos Hotel Presidentti

Centrally located. Good sevice. Nice breakfast.
Presidenti is a very good hotel in the center of Helsinki. The staff is very nice and helpful. But the rooms could be a little more practical with cupboard to hang you clothes in and some drawers. It wo uld also be could tobe able to order food or at least coffe on a Sunday afternoon. I can also recommend the excellent breakfast.

Old building, renovated rooms

Excellent location. Very friendly staff at the reception.
The Presidentti hotel has a very central location, especially with the new Kamppi shopping center. Excellent connections with public transport -- bus station next door, trams and main train station in walking distance. The hotel itself looks a bit old, although it has a certain charm. Rooms have been recently renovated and they were in good shape. There was also a restaurant with Spanish dishes. The receptionist was very nice and polite.
Shopping Tip: Kamppi shopping mall is right next door.

concrete charme

good location, large breakfast buffet, helpfull staff
a huge hotel with many many rooms (a little labyrinth). The rooms are not too small and clean. Depending on the location of the room, there might be some noise from the disco (when the windows are open). The breakfast was magnificent (if you like fish). The sauna and the pool area were ok. The temperature of the pool water was very low. Unfortunately the sauna is closed on sunday evening. The staff is very nice (we wanted to go after the Helsinki Marathon into the sauna. Normally the opening hours were passed, but we could enter and stay in the sauna as long we like).
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: the tram (station direct in front of the hotel) ist good for sight seeing

A Convenient hotel

I think this hotel's location is very good. About 10 min walk from railway station, near from one shopping center and some restaurants around there.
We stayed here for a night. The location was good; about 10min from the railway station, also to go to the center (Stockmann department, other many shops places) about 10 min walk. Very convenient for going everywhere in Helsinki. The hotel room is also good. It isn't new hotel but cleaned well and you can enjoy taking a bubble bath. But there are so many rooms so you should be careful or you might get lost:) Breakfast is also good. Tasty and many kinds of foods. It is buffet type. Many kinds of drinks, bread, cheese, meatball, muesli, salads, deserts etc... We could really enjoy having a breakfast.

Convenient hotel

Good location: This hotel is near from the railway station. It takes about 10 minutes walk from the station. Good breakfast: Many kinds of foods, good taste.
We went to this hotel as a small group. The check-in was smooth and the hotel reception's clark was kind. The location was near from the railway station and we could go to the center only few minute walk. The hotel room was clean and we could enjoy taking a bath. Near from this hotel, there are one shopping center. Also, about 10 min walk, we could visit the diet building and Finlandia hall, national museum.

A good hotel

The best features of this hotel is the very convenient location. You can go there about 10 minutes' walk from the Helsinki railway station.
I think there are three good points to stay this hotel. Location: it is very close to the middle of the city. You can easy go to departmentstores, restaurants, clothes shops and so on. In addition that, you can go to the railway station/bus staions about 10 min walk from the hotel. Breakfast: Breakfast was very good. Many selections of foods (fruits, bread, small cake, salad, coffee/tea and juice, etc.) Buffet type so you can eat as much as you want. Taste is also very good. Room: I felt very comfortable. It was not so big and very simple but there were, bathroom and bedroom. Very clean. There was not inculde tea kettle. Other: This hotel has sauna and swimming pool in the downstairs.

Hotel in good location

The hotel is in the center of Helsinki, at walking distance from the Central Station
The hotel has a good location in the center of Helsinki, at walking distance from the Central Station. The staff is fair but not too friendly or helpful. The breakfast room was very busy both days we spent there with families with kids, large tour groups and individual tourists. It was hard to get a free table, the room was crowded, the variety of the food limited.

Comfortable yet affordable
Music from the night pub was heard from the room even with closed window, but it was not very disturbing.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Kiasma Contemporary Art museum is really worth to see - just across the Mannerheiminaukio.
