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.

      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.

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!

      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!

      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.
