Hotels Near the Train Station

Hello,

We will be flying into Helsinki and then taking a train to Tampere the next day. Is it safe to stay in a hotel near the train station? If so, what hotels are nearby that you recommend? Thanks so much in advance!

There are several good, safe hotels right next to the railway station;

Sokos hotelli Vaakuna www.sokoshotels.fi

Seurahuone http://www.hotelliseurahuone.fi/hotelliseurahuone!/en_GB/

Holiday Inn City Center …holidayinn.com/hotellit/…

Radisson SAS Plaza radissonblu.fi/cs/…

I book always rooms at Holiday Inn for my foreign business guests and they have been happy with it.

Stayed overnight in Hotel Arthur a couple of years ago - do not recommend. Hotel Vaakuna is right next to the railway station, a very nice hotel.

Helsinki city Railway station area and surroundings are safe today. Only place to avoid at the evening and night is Kaisaniemi park.

In centre there are always policemen and guards almost 24h.

So basic caution is always good vice when travelling everywhere in the world.

I stayed in Helsinki in June, at the Hotel Helka. found it very nice, but basic.

walked there from the train station.

only problem I had was where the road names change between Finnish and Swedish, so I actually walked back to the station and started again to try and find my way...

That's a drawback about bilingualism I always warn visiting friends about. On the tourist map, if the street is long enough, they print BOTH names - to confuse strangers, presumably.
