Holiday Inn Helsinki Exhibition & Convention Center
Ranked #46 of 66 Hotels in Helsinki
Reviewed 28 October 2012

Everything was great. I just didn't like how limited we were to food. Finland is really expensive compared to the United Kingdom. Either way, it was a very nice hotel and I would recommend it to people. Just make sure to get the times of the restaurant! The tram is right outside of the hotel which is great. It is about a 15 minute easy, smooth ride to the city. Also there is a grocery called Alepa's that is 5 minutes away on 7B. The way to get back is 7A.

Excellent self contained hotel and conference centre. Although a little out of the city centre the hotel has all you could need for a comfortable stay and conference. Was there for three days in October - comfortable room, excellent restaurant for breakfast and dinner. Helpful and friendly staff. The conference rooms were well appointed and equipped with efficient ICT facilities - everything worked without a hitch - I wish I could say the same about other venues I have used. A short taxi ride from the airport - expensive but everything in Helsinki is. Also a short tram, train or taxi ride from the city centre and its lively night life. Would be very happy to hold another conference there.

Room Tip: All rooms are very similar but I like high floors.

Our group stayed there for two nights, overall the quality was good and rooms were very clean. The hotel staffs were very nice and were willing to assist us based on the fact that we asked them directions to the city for many times in different groups and they were still very friendly and willing to help. The location is just okay, it is kind of a business area to me so nothing much to do in the hotel area and also the only restaurant available around the area is the restaurant at the hotel ground floor, which offers great food but closes at 10pm. Train station is about 3 minutes walk from the hotel, and one stop away from the city centre (about 5 minutes on train). I think overall, it was a good stay.

There is one Holiday Inn right in the center which I don't know and one 5-10 minutes away by train.
The latest didn't leave me a good impression. Not sure if it's understaff or bad management. If the reception is a bit busy or room service they just never pick up the phone.
Rooms are dated and not very clean. The carpet will need to be changed or at least shampooed.
Area is depressing, surrounded by factories and offices.
On the top the cleaner seems to like vacuuming the corridor early morning.
Breakfast is not very good and don't be late as they lock the door...
Gym is small but well equipped. Couldn't see the sauna as its opened only a couple of hours per day.

I was at a confernece and an exhibition in Helsinki for 9 days. It was very convenient.
Desk Staff are very professional, helpful, nice and all speak good English.
House keeping are not very good.
A good Variety for breakfast.
The Hotel is not in the City Center, however the tram is facing the hotel: Tram 7A, 7B & 9 go to city center. The train station is 5 minutes walk from the hotel.

We were at an exhibition in Helsinki for five days. First point was that the hotel was fully booked and my Platinum status got me a suite, no problem. The hotel is nice, clean, got all you need, competent and helpful personnel at the front desk, WiFi everywhere and that was free. We had a few points on the bill under discussion and all points were quickly resolved in our favor by the hotel. The suite was great, specious and exactly what we needed. The fact that the hotel is part of the exhibition center was of course a very good point too, since we did not have to travel at all to go to and from the exhibition. Overall a very good experience and I can recommend this hotel. Also the price was reasonable. I have seen many Holiday Inn hotels, and this is definitely on the higher end of it.

Room Tip: The status helps and is respected in the hotel.

Perfect location if you go to the exhibition center. Room was nice and clean and breakfast had a good choice. The neighborhood does not offer much to do, but tram or train connection are really perfect to get into the center. I tried the gym as well, small but really ok for my to do my running.
