Cumulus Kaisaniemi
Ranked #42 of 66 Hotels in Helsinki
Reviewed 25 May 2013

Travelled for business and was placed into one of the superior rooms, so perhaps the upgrade affects my overall impression. The room was huge for 1 person and the design looked more upscale than I had expected based on the photos. Not too much natural light in this particular room (the windows opened to a small courtyard), but the lamps were well placed and the light from them pleasant and adequate. The bed was comfortable and the room was quiet, so good sleep quality. I'd say the only downside of the room was the lack of water heater/coffee maker (I believe I could have gotten a hot drink from the lobby, but couldn't be bothered to go see).
I've got no complaints about the fairly standard Nordic-type buffet breakfast. The lobby is much cosier in real life than on the pictures. The service was quick and the staff very friendly, although I did have to come back downstairs to ask for the Internet code/password (valid for 24 hours) after checking in initially (such a minor thing to mention really).
Overall, I would gladly stay there again based on this experience and due to the hotel's excellent central location.

Room Tip: Go for the superior room.

Each time while travelling to Helsinki I book this hotel. There are few things that really important for me and I have found it in this hotel: great attitude and willingness to help from hotel staff, clean rooms, perfect location and of course price. I reccomend this hotel for people who share the same priorities while travelling.

The hotel is located right next to Kaisaniemi metro station, and the city centre and also central railway station are very close to the hotel. Rooms are clean and have everything you need. The bed is comfy, and breakfast is also very good. I would definitely recommend this hotel if you're looking for a place to stay in Helsinki. Not too fancy, but the price is right!

there is a number of hotels in that area, and this one is a good option among of them.
pay attention at check-in not to get the room with window to the street, where the tram line goes - that one is noisy.
Set of pillows to chose in the room, internet connection, good breakfast - exactly what I usually need.
As a bonus - perfect pub just in front of the entrance...though beer price in Finland is a crime :)

Room Tip: be aware of a tram line view!

The only reason to stay in this hotel is its location. Comfort, breakfast, bathroom are really poor. and the lifts are terrible. The place is noisy. It is rather depressing hotel, .I paid 150 e for a very average hostel.

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.

Room Tip: Get a Superior Room

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