Very friendly service. Not too big and yet, big enough. I enjoyed beautiful Finnish design. Meeting with friends,in a lobby, felt like spending some time in a living room. And kitchen offered many tasteful, pleasant surprises.

Stayed here overnight while taking in the sights of Helsinki - rooms are nice and spacious, food in the restaurant is very good and reasonably priced, bar has a nice atmosphere. The staff are amazing at this hotel - even provided us with a take away breakfast as we had an early flight - will stay here again!

Excelent location for business trips (near central railwaystation, bus, metro, Kampi).
Superfriendly and helpful staff. Clean roam, excelent breakfast and restaurant.
Third time I book this hotel and will always be my first choice for booking an hotel in Helsinki.
Kiisto, Helka staff.

There is something about this hotel which says 'family'. I have stayed here for a total of 82 nights so I know it through and through.

They recently tarted up the rooms ('my' room is 504) and I think they over did it but never mind its the same place. There is a sauna on the top floor.

To the left of the reception is a bar/cafe which I used to retreat to after seeing clients.

Yes there are problems with the adjacent night club scene which goes on until 3am Fridays and Saturdays. Afterwards you hear people shouting when they are finding taxis and so on.

You are 10 min walk from the main station and 3 min walk from the subway. You are a few minutes away from museums and art galleries and the Sibelius Centre (frequent concerts).
Don't bother to hire a car while in Helsinki.Public transport is good.. There is an amazing system for calling cabs so they are at your door by the time you put the phone down (well almost). Clockwork town it is.

By the way there are regular buses from the airport to the main station so even if you have luggage, walking up to the hotel is no hardship.

Room Tip: Don't pick a room by the lifts i.e. one at the end of the corridor is good.

Our stay at the Helka Hotel was short but perfect. The rooms look new and the ceiling with the Pictures are nice. there is a flatscreen-tv in the rooms and a Minibar. It's Close to the railwaystation and in the citycenter. Try the Falafel Restaurant right next to it. Our room was too cold since we weren't able to turn off the fan. We complained and they said we could Change rooms into a Junior Suite with our own Sauna without paying anything more. Perfect Hotel for a decent Price.
