Helka is a great place to stay. My wife and I spent a total of 4 nights there in September - 3 nights consecutively, a trip to St Petersburg and then returning to Helka for one more night before returning to the states. The staff were helpful with all questions and great at giving directions and suggestions for dinner. They even let us store a suitcase for three days while we were in Russia. The decor was Scandinavian modern and quite nice. We requested upper floor accommodations to avoid street noise and had perfectly quiet rooms. Restaurant was fabulous but busy at breakfast time. Helsinki is expensive and Helka is not cheap but we have no complaints and would definitely return. It was a very positive experience.

We have recently returned from yet another trip to Finland, based in Helsinki. Helka Hotel was excellent for everything.The food is very good,healthy and good quality. The hotel's recent refurbishment uses all the best of Finnsh design.The rooms are smart, functional, comfortable and modern.All very tastefully done,throughout the hotel.The staff are very helpful and the location is very convenient for central locations.We would definitely stay there again.

I would recommend this hotel to anyone who wants a good location, just out of the hustle & bustle. The shops are just 5 mins walk, the harbour probably 15 mins- im not sure,kept going in shops on the way! The room (220) was very modern, business like. Lovely black floorboards and modern decor. The beds were so comfy. And even though we were next to the stairs/lift we couldnt hear any noise, apart from if people were talking loudly as they walked past. The rooms have free air-con which is great, english channels on the tv showing actual decent sutff and there was free internet in the reception (and in the room if you have a laptop.) The bathroom was small (bit difficult to bend down in) but very clean. And the staff were very helpful and polite, speaking good english. Other areas of the hotel are very clean & modern. Breakfast was basic continental (typical Finn breakfast, oats, bread, cereal) we only ate it twice cos we were to lazy to get up!
I had a great time here! P.S- go the the cinema, (we saw Miami Vice in English with Finnish subtitles!) Its 2 mins from the hotel- left and cross the road. It has comfy chairs and loads of leg room oh and its sloped well so if some tall person sits in front u can still see!)

Stylish Finnish hotel. Whilst the corridors might seem a bit like a dorm, the rooms are well fitted out with examples of Finnish design.

Close to the Kamppi shopping centre and bus station, day trips from Helsinki are easy. It is a relatively short walk to several tram and metro bus lines.

Staff were helpful, with a secure luggage room to use after checking out. Breakfast is well stocked compared to other hotels in the region.

Very comfortable beds, excellent breakfast and quiet rooms if facing the courtyard. My husband and I stayed there 3 nights in all. The price of 102 euros can't be beat, especially for rooms so well designed with classic modern Finnish furniture and light fixtures. The staff was very patient and helpful. One night we ate dinner at the Helka Restaurant (where breakfast is located) and had superb food - Finnish salmon salad was delicious. We would definitely go back. The only detail which could be improved is in the hotel rooms the black-out curtains underneath the sheer white drapes were about two inches too narrow for the large windows and let light in from the sides, which was a little bothersome with the extended summer daylight, though this probably wouldn't bother most people.
