Reviewed 3 days ago NEWvia mobile

It's a convenient,simple and newly refurbished hotel next to the central station of Helsinki. You can easily reach from the airport by Finnair shuttle bus because buses are stopped in front of the hotel and 6€ one way. Rooms were clean,staff were helpful and kind. Don't think that, staying next to the station creates disadvantages for the hotel, definitely no....

This is a very conveniently located hotel right next to the train station. Rooms are typical of the Holiday Inn chain - well set out, neat, clean. Staff were welcoming and breakfast very nice. Would definitely return.

The location of this hotel is second to none - not only is it near the station and a rental car company, it's a great base for sightseeing because a lot of the good stuff is within walking distance.
