“Nice hotel also for families”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 13 November 2011

Hotel Cumulus Hakaniemi has a very good location in Hakaniemi, Helsinki. It is only 20 meters from the hotel to Hakaniemi subway (metro) station and by subway (metro) you get to the city centre of Helsinki (central railway station and Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art) in only 2 minutes (1.5 kilometers).

It is less than 100 meters from the hotel to Hakaniemi marketplace and Hakaniemi markethall (food, souvenirs, Finnish products etc. in two storeys). It is only 100 meters also to Rosso Restaurant, which is very good for families.

Rooms are quite new and big, especially family rooms. There are even rooms with 3 extra beds. Room temperature can be manually adjusted to 20-24 degrees Celsius.

There is a pillow menu in this hotel: a medium pillow on the bed, a soft pillow in the closet and a firm pillow in the reception. If you want to get a peaceful room, ask a room with windows to the courtyard.

There is also a gym, a Finnish sauna (separated for women and men, heated in the evening) and kids' playing room in this hotel. All these facilities are free for hotel guests. The garage (for 17 cars) is very expensive.

There is a very typical, standard Finnish breakfast in this hotel. The view from the the breakfast room to Hakaniemi marketplace is very nice.

There are two very nice parks for children near this hotel. Ilola Park near Helsinki City Theatre (350 meters from the hotel) is the better one.

Café Piritta (Eläintarhantie 12, Tokoinranta, 400 meters from the hotel) is a very nice cafeteria. You get also lunches and there is a nice terrace there, too.

It is only 2 kilometers from the hotel to Linnanmäki Amusement Park and Sea Life Helsinki Aquarium.

Room Tip: If you want to get a peaceful room, ask a room with windows towards courtyard.

The location is good. The room was truly accessible for wheelchair and large. The breakfast was fine but not luxurious. Altogether, the hotel was very nice. The only minus is the lack of a restaurant or proper lobby to meet friends while our stay.

Room Tip: Mention about your needs in advance

well i stayed there for 5 nights between October 11-15th, staff were so friendly and nice, the breakfast was very good! i stayed at room 704 and it was so comfortable, large and the beds were so gooodd! if you will open the window you will hear noise,very loud, once it shuts, it's all quiet! so it's good! basically you deserve free internet cable connection, and our's wasn't working so we got the wifi for free,bottom line, the hotel was very clean and tidy, staff were amazing, i can recommend it with all my heart!!! if you want to be close to the center (7 min's walk) and have a good hotel with no so much money, it's the right place.
p.s if you need something from the reception, don't call, they barely answer, just go down and they will help you with good kind :)

Room Tip: ask for a room in a higher floor!!!

I agree with all of the positive reviews on this hotel. There is free access to the internet so if you don't want to pay for Wifi, use this. I used their computer many times while I was there with no one around. I would equate this hotel with the Hampton Inn but with a better breakfast buffet and larger rooms. Yes, lots of shops around and I walked to the center of town in 15 mins.

Please check my other review on this hotel for the pros of this nice place....

What really made me agree in my last visit is that they started July 2011 to charge for Wifi - especially that a daily fee of 2,5 EUR is soooo rediculous in Finland where 2 EUR has a purchasung power of 0,5 EUR in middle-Europe. In other words: why do they charge such stupidly low fee for a service which is free in McDonalds and Starbucks around the world and also many pubs and restaurants offer now free Wifi?

As cable connection is for free my assumption that this is Finnish way to protest on the iphone sucess? "we want to get some money from iphone users"? Actually it also hits the Nokia smartphone users... rolling eyes...

Please Cumulus Hakaniemi Managment, let's forget about theses fees - you can start charging Sauna for 35 EUR (as it's in Spain) or Breakfast für 30 (as it is in Germany) - but leave the Wifi free and skip the 2,5 EUR - do you really needs these 2,5 EUR with rates above 150 EUR?
