Reviewed 3 February 2013

I first had a standard room. It was tiny and the bathroom was rather cramped and unappealing. There was not hot water pot in the room. Frankly, I've stayed in YMCA's that were nicer. The staff were friendly and the room was clean.

I moved the next day to a Superior room and that was much better. The living area was larger, it had a coffee pot, and the bathroom was more spacious and well appointed. If you stay at this hotel, do get a Superior room.

Internet access if free, but you need to get a new code every 24hrs.

The location is 2 blocks away from the train station and there are several restaurants in close proximity to the hotel, as are many sights and shopping locations.

The breakfast was adequate with breads, cereal, coffee/tea, and a few hot items...nothing special.

Overall, this is a convenient hotel with no frills or anything special about it.

grim, unappealing hotel. The worst breakfast I've had at a business hotel in Helsinki. The only good thing is the central location.............................................................................

I paid 80 euros for a night which was very reasonable for this hotel. It's clean. It's in the middle. It's got good breakfast. Sauna is included for the price. Rooms are decent too. That's it, nothing more needed.

I stayed at this hotel for a two night business trip a while ago and it is typically Finnish. Clean, but with little to no frills. Locationwise it is as good as it gets - right in the city centre but if you are looking for comfort or luxury - look elsewhere. The hotel offers good value for money but little more. Breakfast buffet is surprisingly good!

Only 3 minutes walk from railwaystation. Tram, Bus and Metro - stright opposite to hotel. Also, location is outstanding! Breakfast - not bad, relatively rich selection and, most important - well organized and spacy breakfast-room with street-view, from the 2nd etage. single-room - typical european small and cozy room with VERY compact WC-shower-room, no minbar. For me it is, usually difficult to sleep well in hotels, especially in 1st night - herer it was excellent. What's bad - only 1 sauna (ladies from 16 till 18, gents - from 18 till 20!) If the price is good - highly recommended to choose this hotel

I loved the "cloudy" ceiling - so fitting for the Cumulus Hotel! location is fabulous! Super central - perfect! A great value for money hotel. The room was - like in many hotels in Scandinavia - small, but clean and functional. The bed was extremely comfy (never slept better in a hotel bed), and breakfast was nice. The location is amazing (a short walk from the central station, and to most attractions in the city). WiFi was free (although the Expedia confirmation page said 2.50 Euro/day), and staff was friendly. Can't find anything negative about this place - it was a great place in a great location for a reasonable rate! Would always stay here again!

Very clean hotel in downtown Helsinki. Prices were right on and it was a pleasure staying there. Good breakfast and the internet worked very well. Close to shopping, restaurants and the water. Try the Indian restaurant (I forgot the name) close to Cumulus. Also, many good grocery stores are right there so you don't need to eat out if you don't want to.

Room Tip: Ask for window overlooking the square
