+ Great location in the safest and beautiful side of Helsinki
+ Good breakfast
+ Coffee and tea in room
+ Internet
+ Great service, nice paintings, little details
+ I felt welcome

- Outdated room, broken shower floor
- Old bed, maybe other rooms are better?

I would recommed this hotel for couple nights shopping trip, not for luxury though.

So in Finland overall 4 stars, internationally 3.

Dear Darrya!

Nice to hear that your stay was mainly good! Our hotel is famous for its art; we get a new painting every month from the art exhibitions at Ateljee Bar. There is a changing art show and the artist always leaves one piece to the hotel as rent for the space. These paintings are then put allover the hotel; also the rooms. :)

We have just last year updated our mattress toppers to a "Tempur" mattress made from viscoelastic foam (memory foam). Tempur was originally based on NASA’s research to develop a material that would cushion aircraft seats and improve survivability in the event of an accident. Next thing to do are the main mattresses then. Would be nice to know the room number you stayed in; we could check on the shower floor and appearance of the room.

Next time, try out our art deco suite or jugend suite; I hope you could find some luxury in those rooms. :)

Welcome again to Torni!

With best regards,

A unique touch, intelligence and truly individual style: the room decoration pleases your eye and pampers your body. In an Art Deco -room you have a selection of three pillows in a queen-size bed like a cream cake, a scarlet composite sink, an all-glass bathroom with a fabulous view over the roofs of Helsinki, lots of beautiful, yet practical details with an antique fish bone parquet floor. Good air conditioning and sound proof walls guarantee your comfort. We felt like stayning in a private, tiny studio, and enjoyed every minute. Next morning the friendly staff will welcome you to the luscious breakfast buffet asking what you'd like to have for a hot drink. You will find fresh, crisp salad with a balsamico dressing and many other delicacies, chosen in an intelligent and thoughtful way. What a treat for a weekend retreat!

This was a great choice of a hotel while staying for a night in Helsinki. The room was comfortable, the hotel was historical and we could easily walk to the main street. The breakfast was great too. Check out the view from the top!

Location of the hotel is fantastic, right next to all the shopping centres and restaurants & nightclubs you need.

The hotel is classy, elegant, and the staff is super friendly. The rooms are quite big, although the bathrooms could be bigger (we didnt have a tub, so those rooms must have larger bathrooms).

Breakfast was superb, the only negative side is the parking, there are no parking spaces for customers, but you get discount from either Forum park or Qpark.

The bar located on top of the hotel is worth checking out. Stunning view, which is why the bar is rather full all the time, so better visit when it opens, as there arent that many tables.

This hotel could easily become the priority #1 hotel in Helsinki for me (us)!

Dear Hannu85!

We are happy to hear you enjoyed your stay with us! We still have some rooms with bathtubs and the bathrooms in those rooms are maybe a little bit bigger. Maybe next time you try them out? :)

The hotel being over 80 years old, we unfortunately don't have our own parking places. But with two closeby carages, it is fairly easy to get your car in a safe place. The prices though are on the more expensive side, because we are right in the heart of the city. But with our discount and contract rate, it gets easier. ;)

Please come again; we aim to serve you even better next time!

Location is just perfect and the staff is really helpful. Go to the Ateljee Bar on top of the hotel, one of the best views in Helsinki! Breakfast area is too little, but you can avoid standing on queue if you're wise enough not to go on the last hour of breakfast serving. The breakfast is really delicious!

Room Tip: ask for a room with bathtub - they still have some rooms with them!

Dear kataaaw!

Good to hear that we were able to be of service! The breakfast in our restaurant sometimes is crowded during weekends. That is why we have breakfast time from 7.30 - 12 so that everyone would have the possibility to sit in peace and enjoy the most important meal of the day. :)

Hope to you and your friends again in Torni!

The elegant deco tower is a delightful nod to her big sister in new York. Our stay at the Torni was made all the more enjoyable due to the very friendly staff on reception who were very accommodating in helping us change room so that we had a bird's eye view over Helsinki (very important if your stay happens to be over New Year!) Our room on the 11th floor was very comfortable, mixing minimalist with nods to its deco heritage.The staff running breakfast were equally friendly with a warm smile and friendly chat to help start the day. Breakfast was a wide range of high quality choices to please all tastes. Central location means the major shopping and cultural areas are very close at hand, the ferry terminal and rail station short walks from the hotel. Restaurants and culture at hand. yet the Torni is situated slightly tucked away from the main boulevard so quiet and safe.

Room Tip: Rooms on the 8th floor and above facing East so that you are facing over the sights of Helsinki (per...

We decided to spend our new year eve at city, have a different new year. This time we traveled with our small dog, and it was main criteria for hotel to be pet friendly. At arrival, we also received small "gift pack" for dog which was really nice touch.

Small bar at the top of the building was really packed, and it is very small. Go visit for the view at least! Forum shopping center is literally next building, Stockmann is down the road and Kamppi quite close too.

Breakfast was very good, two different coffees to choose from, excellent orange juice and nice selection of fruits and such.
