“Good central location”
Reviewed 24 May 2014

Good hotel, very clean. Right in centre next to bus station and railway station, ideal for seeing the city and also travelling out. Rooms clean and ours was a good size. Breakfast excellent. Staff friendly.

Very good hotel, very clean, good service and English speaking staff, breakfast is good but can be upgraded to have more choices but for an European standards is very good.
I went to Tallinn (Estonia) for the day and they had prepared (on request) a take on breakfast for me and my friends since the restaurant was still close by the time we left.
Room very clean and I can say sound proof.
Very well located for anyone planning a visit for pleasure or business, bus station in front of the hotel and railway station just under it and next to it. Metro and trams at 1 minute walk from the hotel front door.
I will definitely will stay again in my next visit to Helsinki.

Room Tip: I am an IHG member so I got a room on the 6th floor, I guess that also helped with the almost none e...

This is a very convenient place to stay - although it is a couple of minute's walk from the bus station (airport bus) and railway station, it is fairly quiet.
Rooms are big enough with free wifi (works OK, a bit slow at times) decent showers and all the usual stuff. Breakfast buffet is great. Staff are friendly and English speaking.
Being a small city, you can pretty much walk everywhere - it's 10 mins walk to the Olympic Stadium through the park.
There are plenty of eating options nearby too.

I chose the hotel on the pretext of location and it did serve that part very well due to proximity from train station and within walking distance of most sights, restaurants and shopping.
I noticed during check in that front office had trainee staff, who took a bit longer than usual for check in and took a while to help me with some information about public transportation but I dint bother much.I was in for a rude shock. In the evening when I reached the hotel , I went to the front desk personally to set my wake up call for the next day's flight.Yet again I encountered another trainee and I repeated everything twice to make doubly sure that she understood what I wanted.But alas! there was no wake up call and I missed my flight!
The hotel was apologetic and I have even demanded a compensation but it is quite sad to see that they have so many trainees for such critical operations.No what I expected out of Holiday Inn chain.

Amidst the cold there was a warm feeling within this hotel. From the tour I had around the city of Helsinki, it seems that this hotel is in the centre, with close vicinity to the train station, the bus station, the main outlets and other places of interest.

Room Tip: All the rooms have a quiet ambience, however the ones overlooking the square of the bus station are...

It is located 3mins from the Central Train Station. If you have an early morning train like us, it is a good choice for you!
It is situated at the busy area, not only near central station, but also embedded with shopping and food. Convenient but not over-crowded, quiet place for a good rest.

The hotel is in a perfect location, even though Helsinki is perfectly walkable everywhere. It is located next to the rail station and the bus stop for the airport bus is right outside. This was good value in a very expensive city. The rooms are large and comfortable with free wifi.
