“Hellsten Senate Helsinki”
Reviewed 21 October 2013

Very nice (clean and peaceful) apartment and suitable for family staying near the city of Helsinki. Very good value for price. There were some cups and plates in the kitchen, but no sugar, salt etc...

I did not have high expectations of this apartment hotel but I was pleasantly surprised.

I had a very spacious one bedroom apartment, large living area with kitchenette in the corner and dining area. In the bedroom there was a nice double bed and two sturdy looking foldaway beds neatly stored in the corner.

All windows had good curtains (a must in the summertime Finland) and I even had a small balcony, which was lovely.

There is a shop just down the road where you can go and stock up on all lovely Finnish food, you will have everything you can think of back in the hotel to store and cook whatever you buy.

I only wish I'd stayed for longer time!

Great location just minutes from the city center. Wi-fi is included, has a microwave, full size refrigerator, stove top and dishes/pots/etc. Includes the use of laundry services and a private sauna. Would absolutely stay in this location in the future. Best hotel of the 5 we stayed in within Helsinki.

-free wifi
-room has a small kitchen

None

Looks like not Hotel, but apart-hotel. Hotel has no receiption on weekends, have to call to check in.

Nothing more to add. At all. 200 char are too many.

We had a family room and it was a way more than we expected. The apartment was really spacious, I guess about 70 m2 or 750 ft2. We called to the hotel before we arrived and asked for sauna or balcony and they said that they do what they can but they couldn't promise for sure. And when we arrived we realized that they had listened our wishes and we had sauna AND balcony at the city center!!! Room had a cosy furniture with oak parquet, very good beds for 5 persons + sofa, functional kitchen with coffee machine, crockery and dishwasher. We payed extra for a car park at the basement. Overall the hotel was worth each and every penny. Good service when we called to the hotel. No staff (at least not at night time), but easy to check in using the door code and following the instructions by phone at the reception.

Room Tip: Ask for sauna and balcony ;)

I stayed at this hotel for four nights, along with other friends. We booked two units that included a bathroom and a private sauna. The bedrooms are spacious and quiet. The quality of sleep is very good. Very clean, although the towels are not changed daily.
Near the hotel you can take a tram into the city center within a few minutes, very convenient. In short, a very attractive value for money spent.

Close to Market Square, Esplanade Park and historic centre.
On a tram route to Central Station.
Comfortable and warm with appropriate furnishings including a rather intrusive fold up bed stored in the bedroom.
The kitchen area is adequate but does not include a toaster or condiments. This is an apartment and not an hotel room so you need to take such essentials as tea, coffee, salt and pepper with you for a short stay. There is a small supermarket nearby.
The TV set is dated and reception range is limited.
There is no personal contact other than by phone - even check-in is made remotely as described by other reviewers. During the 3 nights we were there the apartment was not cleaned or serviced with new towels etc. The price of £37 per person per night seemed expensive for the quality of what we received.
