We stayed at the Helka for 5 days in May and had a fantastic stay in a hotel I would definitely recommend.
The location is perfect - 10 minute walk from the railway station, 5 minute walk from bars, restaurants and shops and 2 minutes from the Church in the Rock.
The room we stayed in was beautifully clean and stylish - although twin beds. Great decor, including the canvas design overhead. Free internet access was another bonus as was the free morning sauna and sumptuous breakfast buffet.
Staff at the hotel, bar and restaurant were always friendly and happy to help and the hotel is excellent value for money. The rooms aren't huge - but they're big enough for kipping in for a few days.
Helsinki is a beautiful city - if you're visiting, be sure to visit the islands around the city, buy local beer rather than imports and for something totally different and bizarre, visit Hevimesta, the heavy metal karaoke night - amazing!!
