  • Family with children

    Hotel looks as yours own home. Close to the city center, enough comfortable and clean. Nice and secure garage for the car. Sauna! The best solution for the traveling family.

  • Couple
    9.6

    Great location, close to the port and city centre. A comfortable apartment.

  • Family with children
    6.2

    Location is good if you want to do touristy things. Short walk to the waterfront market and ferry terminals. Supermarket even closer.

    No staff or brochures to give info about the city or tourist information/services (eg taxi phone numbers). I've stayed at other Hellsten Helsinki apartments and they had those things.

  • Older travelers
    8.0

    We liked the location. Quiet surrounds and good security. The apartment provides the opportunity to cook and relax easily. Close to transport and markets and supermarket.

    There was a need to have more cooking utensils. There is a need to have curtains that block out the light in the summer months

  • Couple
    9.2

    It was a very large studio apartment, clean and comfortable. Plenty of hot water! For us the location was nice, and we walked everywhere from the apartment, including to the bus station to catch the bus to the airport (about 40minutes - but there is a tram near the apartment that goes to the bus station if you prefer). It is about 20 minutes walk from the other side of the port (where Silja drops off at Olympic terminal). We liked the late check out time (12pm) as it meant we were able to go out to the market on the north island on our last morning, come back and check out. We didn't cook, but there were pots&cutlery supplied, also dishwashing liquid and a scrubber.

    If you are a light sleeper affected by noise, this may not be the place for you as we could hear the noises from the other apartments. It is a little warm in summer as there is no fan in the apartment, but would be very nice and toasty in winter. The codes for the apartment are sent to you a few days before you travel, so if you are going to be without internet then you might want to contact the hotel first before you travel. Also ask for luggage room code if you are going to need it as I didn't see it on the information I eventually received (but I got it way before) - if you forget not a problem as there is a phone at the apartment that connects you to the main hotel.

    A great value close to tram and shopping. Free laundry room, and very nice sauna. Spacious and clean accomodation.

  • Couple
    9.2

    It has really interesting architecture and rooms, specially beds are very comfortable. Also the breakfast buffet was excellent and compare to other hotels in area the price was best. We really enjoy our stay!

  • Family with children
    7.8

    Central loction, close to tram stop, quiet, spacious rooms.

    Air condition may be not effective in this climate, but a simple fan during hot summer would be appreciated :)

  • Family with children
    5.4

    Location

    Temperature outside was 28c and the Bathroom floors were heated! Just like a sauna

  • Couple
    7.8

    Excellent location, just out of the main tourist areas, very convenient for the city center and also the port for trips using the Viking Line. A short walk to the markets, shops and main tourist attractions. Tram stops are very close if you prefer, and the waterfront/marina close by are very attractive.

    Perhaps a little expensive...but so is Helsinki in general. A two seater sofa in the living room would have been preferable to two single seats.

  • Family with children
    9.2

    Tidy and cleanliness of the room,

    The room didn't have air-con. Instruction for some facility that is not familiar with for oriental people like heater and sauna machine should be provided.

  • Older travelers
    5.0

    The hotel does not have a manned reception - everything is automatic. Which might ordinarily work fine, except that when we turned up, punched in all the right codes, opened our key locker, our key wasn't there. The hotel staff apologised, and said they thought another guest must have taken it. We waited till 7:30 pm that night before giving up.

  • Group of friends
    7.4

    Location near to the city and tourist spots

    no reception

  • Group of friends
    8.4

    Convenience to all surrounding important sites, waterfront, stores, trams, quietness of neighborhood.

    Hard to get taxi, not enough towels nor dishes and cooking pots in apartments. Several of us came to hotel (3 apartments) and we had a hard time eating together.

  • Older travelers
    10.0

    Great apartments - recommend most highly. Close to the market, and right in the middle of the Helsinki's most beautiful Art Nouveau quarter.
