Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

    It is an amazing modern building conceived as the social and cultural centre of the city. It is worth a long walk on the interior where you can find the library, a cosy cowork space, a cafe, a child space, and much more.

    The building is extraordinary, and you can wander around to look at the collection. Some of the books I found were well over 100 years old, and in great condition.

    The library is across the street from the church, and well worth the stop,

    The white Carrara marble is the trademark of Aalto's masterpiece but it doesn't tolerate the Finnish climate. Already 30 years after the opening in 1971 the exterior of the building was replaced for the first time, now a new operation with Lasa marble will take place during the next two years. A small substitute hall in wood has been erected in front of the construction site. It looks interesting with a long sheltered corridor where the wooden pillars have still some branches intact. A restaurant with a large terrace overlooking the Töölö bay will enjoy mainly evening sun.

    Anybody can enter to admire the University Library built above the metro station and designed by Anttinen Oiva Architects in 2012. There is a small door at Kaisaniemi on street level but the main entrance is on Fabianinkatu. A connection through several doors and corridors leads to another remarkable showcase of Finnish architecture, the Porthania which too belongs to Helsinki University. Aarne Ervi whose works include the Töölö Library and the almost derelict Heikintori shopping center in Tapiola designed it in the 1950's.

    This information center can be found in the center of the city, a good place as this is where many of the tour buses stop. Inside are free maps and staff who will help you with your questions. English spoken.

    A winding main staircase, a rotunda with columns and a loft for newspapers are the architectural elements giving the red brick building from 1912 its character. The first publicly funded library in Helsinki was designed by Karl Hård af Segerstad. The array of things you can loan nowadays is ever expanding, there is even a carrier bike by the main entrance.
