Hardly a couple of minutes to Kampii station. Trams No:2 and 9 will get you to the cruise terminals to Stockholm, Tallinn and St.Petersburg. Also a short walk to the Rock Church. Highly recommended!

      Excellent customer service (special thanks to Mika and Oona!). The hotel is about 5 mins walk from the city. Rooms are clean and comfortable. I love the in-house shampoo and shower gel (I usually use my own)! Would definitely choose Hotel Helka if I return to Helsinki. Kudos!

      What's not to love? The hotel is a stone's throw from Kamppi, and sports very chic interiors. Love the eco-conscious reminders as well! Kudos for the functional details as well - covers for power points in the room, customised postcards (that double as great branding collaterals). The breakfast is a treat - think fresh, wholesome produce. I'd def stay here when in Helsinki!

      We enjoyed our stay at Hotel Helka. It was conviently located and within walking distance of the harbor. The room was clean and comfortable and the internet extremely fast. Breakfast was the highlight with delicious local foods including salmon and two kinds of herring, and a selection of local breads. There was also a selection of the regular breakfast food and a capuchino machine. We liked this hotel and would stay here again if we return to Helsinki.

      The single rooms are small but so well designed, they don't feel cramped. It had everything you could need - comfortable bed, great shower, tea making facilities, well insulated, good climate control. It's perfect for travellers who are out all day and just need a comfortable place to sleep. The staff couldn't be more helpful and welcoming. Breakfast is excellent - fresh, healthy, plentiful and the bar downstairs does drinks and delicious snacks. It's close to trams, trains and shops and the town centre is an easy walk. Best hotel I have stayed in for a long time and great value for money - for Helsinki.

      Fantastic value in the heart of Helsinki”
      I loved my stay here. As a solo traveler, coming to Finland can be intimidating due to the expensive nature of this part of the world. Hotel Helka is a fantastic value. Good things: - Very friendly staff, willing to answer questions and help you with your visit - Clean, bright rooms - 15 minute leisurely walk to train station, ten if moving along - Less than 10 minute stroll to Rock Church, 6 minutes if going straight there - Sauna is great! Why come to Finland and not have a sauna?? - Finally, a fantastic buffet style breakfast in a chic, clean, bright eating area Would definitely stay here again!

      1. Good location 2. Clean and comfortable room 3. Buffet breakfast was good but as it is the same items served every morning, long term stay guests may be tired of the same breakfast after the third day. There should be some change of items each morning

      Fantastic Breakfast buffet for price. Be sure to select a plan that includes breakfast. Very helpful staff, and the wifi is no-nonsense. It would help if there was a trolley at reception to move the heavy luggage, and a safe in the room, but these are minor points, Overall we loved it.

      An interesting weekend in Helsinki”
      Clean, quiet, well designed room. Good breakfast. Helpful receptionists.
      I would have preferred wireless internet in the room rather than broadband, and Scandinavian hotels never have a hospitality tray in the room for the guest to make a cup of tea!
      It was 40 years since my first visit to Helsinki when I stayed at the Student Summer Hotel in Otaniemi so this was luxury. A larger than usual single room with furniture of Finnish design, TV and minibar, and a nice ensuite. Everything was clean and tidy. I loved the silver birch tree trunks and the murals in the breakfast room and the food was good too. After discovering the route to the station via Kamppi and the Forum Shopping Centres without the need to get wet or cold, I would definitely stay there again. Kiitos.

      Attractive Finnish style and design features. Friendly and helpful english-speaking staff. Excellent restaurant with traditional and modern dishes and good bar area.
      Small bedrooms, leaky shower, smoky feel to corridors. Breakfast good range but quality weak.
      This is a small friendly low-cost hotel with a distinctly Finnish flavour. Situated two minutes from the metro and ten minutes walk from the main station, there is a good range of nearby shopping and eating places and night venues. The main town centre, harbour and other attractions are all within an easy level walk.
