We stayed here 1 night with some friends. The room was a very good size and easily accomodated us and our 11 year old. We found it very quiet, with a comfortable bed. Centrally located not far from market place etc.
The staff were very helpful especially at breakfast in the morning when we need to take a few things for one of our party as they needed to leave earlier and had no time for breakfast.
The one bad thing was NO SAUNA! Very odd

We use hotel Haven every time we stay night in Helsinki.

Located in the middle of Helsinki, just a minute walk from the Market Square and no more than 5 minutes to the Central Railway Station. Hotel is surrounded by nice restaurants. If you arrive with Silja Line, you can walk to the hotel in 5 minutes from the ferry terminal.

Staff is efficient.

Breakfast is served downstairs in Restaurant Havis. During summertime they have small inner courtyard which is nice. Complimentary wifi, nice Bang&Olufsen TV sets with 40+ channels.

Beware - hotel has very limited parking capacity. We've stayed in the hotel few times and there's a 50/50 chance whether you can fit into parking garage (free of charge, very limited space, hard to get in if you drive big SUV) or not. You can always use garage at Kasarmintori, chargin anything from 24€ / day up to 60€ or even more.

As with all Finnish hotels, price is quite high but there is really no cheap options if you want to stay anywhere in Finland at a bit better hotel.

Hotel Havens location is superb. Our room was tastefully furnished, however it could have been slightly more spacious. This also goes for the bathroom. The view to the harbour from the bed however was breathtaking.

Staff at the reception, in the bar and at breakfast could not have been more friendly and helpful. A special thank you goes to the concierge who helped me with a special post request I had.

Breakfast is absolutely delicious and offers a wide choice.

The hotel is a very classy choice and I absolutely recommend it.

I can really recommend this hotel. We stayed for 2 nights, had a De Luxe room with excellent view of the Market square and the harbour. The beds are so comfortable, the bathrooms luxurious and all is very good. The only thing and that is what stopping me from giving the highest grade is that when we returned after a long day out at around 4PM wanting to take a shower and dress for dinner our room wasn't cleaned! So we had to find the maid and ask her to clean our room while we went out on town again for a while. You do expect your room to be cleaned sooner than that.

Stayed at the Hotel Haven with my wife over an extremely cold Helsinki weekend and are happy with our stay. The decoration of the rooms is the first positive thing that comes to mind, modern and elegant in a warm way, as we like it. Bathrooms spacey and pleasant, all the modern amenities there, breakfast OK, although not exceptional, taken in a restaurant that you reached after crossing a small courtyard. Staff was very friendly and professional, helped us with tips about Helsinki. They also charged us 100 Euros for smoking in our room, however we can't fault them on that as we had been warned first and we were repeat offenders. Only real minus was that we didn't have a view from our room. There are a couple of restaurants adjacent to the hotel, I visited the less formal one and enjoyed it very much, would definitely recommend it for fine Finnish cuisine. Helsinki was great, alhough we visited at the wrong time of year: very, very, VERY cold for two Greeks like us. We imagine that in the summer it must be much more pleasant.

The Haven Hotel in Helsinki has a fantastic location right by the waterfront and the park as well as shopping are a very short walk away.
The staff are very friendly and the facilities are well-provided.
