“Perfect location”
Reviewed 23 October 2011

Very nice hotel, superior room was spacious and clean. Own balcony was a nice surprise. Hotel has a perfect location at center of Helsinki, but still the rooms are quiet and you can't here any traffic noises to the rooms.

This is a hotel with long history. it is perfectly located and really stylish. We had a family room which was big enough but unfortunately provided no view to at all. If you are lucky the rooms up in the tower offer brilliant views. The Atelje Bar on the top is most recommended, splendid view!

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a view!

I spent two nights at the Torni (= tower) hotel and was fortunate to have corner room on the the 7th floor with a beautiful view in two directions. It was a quite small single room but everything was very nice and completely satisfactory. A trendy glass wall between the room and the bathroom made both seem larger. The whole hotel has preserved the original art deco style of 1931 when Torni first opened, which I found most interesting and fascinating. Torni has a very central location within walking distance of the central railway station where also the airport bus stops. The breakfast was of high standard.

Room Tip: The view rooms are on the 7th - 11th floor (each having only 4 rooms).

I stayed in the Torni for 3 nights in the Summer of 2010 with my boyfriend. We had a double en-suite room in the third or fourth floor. The room was really nice and clean, bed was really comfy etc. It is probably the best hotel in Helsinki, as far as I'm concerned.

The location is great, just in the middle of central Helsinki.

The breakfast is average, being a bit industrial as many of the hotel breakfasts in Finland. However, you have a lot to choose from!

The bar/café on the roof is something to see - the prices are really expensive but the view is great. It is a really nice place to visit when travelling in Helsinki.

The only warning I need to give are the toilets. Torni has a unique style of having the toilets and the shower box made from glass (or something through which you can see). For couples/good friends it is not a problem, but if you are planning on taking a twin room for example with someone you don't know that well, bare in mind that the other one can see you taking a shower/going to the toilet. It's actually a fun detail!

This was my first stay at the hotel although I had visited the top floor bar before (highly recommended). It was fully booked and I arrived rather late, so I was given a room at first floor. The style was nice, combining traditions and today. However, the furniture was already a bit run-down.

My room was facing backyard, so there was no noise from outside. However, the walls or ceilings in an old building are not verygood at insulationg noise. All through the night I heard slamming doors or heavy steps.

This hotel has long corridors with steps and heavy doors, so it might not be the best choice if you are disabled or travel with children.

The breakfast was normal, Finnish hotel breakfast with all the basic stuff and some extras.

Location is good, central but not facing any main street.

Room Tip: There must be a great view from the top floors.

Torni is a nice and stylish hotel in the center of Helsinki (near Kamppi bus station).
The room was small, but clean and all the facilities were available. The staff was helpful.
During the weekend the breakfast room was a bit too overcrowded. Otherwise, the food was great and selection rather good.

I enjoyed my two-night stay at this hotel a lot. I had a nice and quiet room on the 5th floor. The only think about this hotel that struck me as a bit funny is the elevator. There's only one tiny one that goes all through the building + one that went to the 5th floor.
So if you're travelling with children in prams this might not be your hotel as the tiny elevator was full most of the time?
excellent breakfast and I managed to get myself a table by the window both mornings :)!
