There are several Holiday Inn around Helsinki, I stayed before and this is the average one. The room a bit old and located a bit far from the center of the city. I notice that it's more for conferences. Very helpful reception and hotel staff. A very good breakfast too.

The Holiday Inn is everything you would expect; Easy check-inn with friendly staff, clean big american style decor rooms (heavy furniture) and a good bathroom. Got a double room with separate beds, that where surprisingly comfortable. If I stayed with my spouse the 10 cm space between the beds would be annoying. If staying with a friend or colleague it...

My girlfriend and I stayed at this hotel for one night when attending a wedding in Helsinki.

I barely stayed at this Holiday Inn property for two nights. The room was well furnished and luckily had the dark curtains as well, quite a relief in the land of the midnight sun. It is quite far from Helsinki City Centre, but overall the staff were helpful and it was a comfortable stay.
