    Amazing location and value”

    Location

    the holiday inn helsinki city centre is a nice and relatively new hotel that is both clean and comfortable, and provides good value for money. the best feature about this hotel is its location. situated right next to helsinki station, it is steps from the drop off point for the finnair aiport bus from helsinki-vantaa airport. the hotel is also walking distance from senaatintori, as well as most other major helsinki attractions.

    Review for Hotel Indigo Boulevard”

    Holiday Inn was under going renovation and transferred us to Hotel Indigo. Absolutely love Hotel Indigo. Newly opened, rooms were artistically designed, with shoes and Iittala glasses. Even the room glasses were Iittala and Arabia mugs. Very nice. Toiletries given were from Aveda, very nice. But would be better if the toilet floor had heat as we stayed during winter. Overall better hotel than Holiday Inn although same group. Location not as central, but still able to walk into city centre in about 15mins, if it's too cold, there is a tram station less than 5mins away, pretty convenient.

    It's right next to main train station of Helsinki. The Finnair bus station that goes to airport is right in front of the hotel. It takes about 25 minutes to airport. You can pay the fare to the bus driver as you get on the bus. It's right in the middle of Helsinki within walking distance. The room is modern, clean, nice bathtub, fast WIFI, staffs are friendly. It also has a nice clean cozy sauna. It's not mixed for men and women. It's all separated.

We can walk to many of the major destinations.... some 15 minutes to 25 minutes away. the staffs were friendly . The breakfast was great too.The shopping was only 5 to 10 mins walk.

    Central but impersonal”

    Good location, nice rooms.
    A bit impersonal.

    The Holiday Inn is literally at city centre -- it is right next to central railway station. We were a bit worried if the central location might mean noisy nights, but the sound insulation seemed decent. The hotel itself is rather new, one of the glass-steel buildings that are an all too common sight in Helsinki these days. The rooms were nice and clean. Wired Internet was included. The reception staff was polite although a bit impersonal. We asked if we could get our room early and the answer was "no" without even checking. Only when we told that we had called and checked a few minutes ago did the receptionist actually check that there indeed was a room for us. We did not try the breakfast buffet -- it wasn't included in the standard price, and at a whopping 18 euros / person, we thought we'd rather spend our money at some cosier place. I would recommend this place if you need just a place to spend a night, but for longer stays I'd choose a place with a nicer atmosphere.

    This was an excellent location for me as I was able to quickly do everything I wanted to do within a few minutes travel time from the hotel. Items on the menu were tasty and the staff were always helpful. I extended my stay because it felt like a logical choice and the staff helped me get done what needed to be finished.

    Perfect location ”

    Location was unbeatable. Steps away from the airport bus stop making airport transfers a Breeze. Airport was also located in The Central station area, giving guests various transport options. During my stay, I effortless utilised trams, metro and buses. There were several supermarkets and malls very close to the hotel as well. Oodi central library, Amos Rex were amongst some of the attractions in the area. Faultless location! Hotel itself was very spacious for Helsinki standards, room came equipped with a mini bar and bath tub. The stay would have been perfect if not for the strong sewer stench coming from the toilet.

    A Need To Buck Up On Housekeeping!”

    Location is awesome, just maybe 3-5 minutes walk from the high speed rail station (that’s if you are taking a train to Helsinki). However, there is a need to improve on the housekeeping. The housekeeper didn’t bother to throw away our used cutleries and food containers, didn’t refill our toiletries. It’s quite obvious that the whole room wasn’t clean up properly, just touched and go. They definitely didn’t change the sheets as the beds weren’t properly made. Only reasons why I would recommend would be the location and the friendliness of the staffs.

    Location, location, location

    Perfectly sited to use the frequent and efficient Finnair airport transport bus. The hotel is at the edge of the central station and is approx, 100 metres to walk from the hotel doors to the number 30 bus stand (for Finnair bus) - very convenient for those cold early starts (and MUCH cheaper than taxis, also with free wifi on the bus - €6.30 each way as of November 2014). Other than that, the hotel is well, it's another fairly bland Holiday Inn. The location makes it a great option if you fancy seeing some of Helsinki and getting away from the airport area.
