"Pretty in Pink"
A charming and quaint hotel in a nice central location. Very peaceful with friendly functional staff. Interesting compatible decor. The bedroom was very clean and a vast choice of a healthy Finnish breakfast buffet. Coming from the UK. Wasn't expecting to have a sauna on the top floor. An invigorating experience. Thank you to the proprietors!
"Good hotel, not so friendly breakfast staff"
The Helka Hotel had a very nice designed room and the atmosphere in the lobby was quite nice. Its central enough to explore lots of Helsinki's inner city by foot. The negative point was the breakfast staff at least during both of our breakfast. They were not attentive, not friendly and little requests were fulfilled without any feeling they like their job.
Superb, peaceful and very clean. Fantastic Staff: really well located in the centre of Helsinki City. All facilities near : Shopping Center's, Metro, Trams and Buses. A wonderful hotel. Matthew :Chairman ARTRAINASSOCIATION
"Exellent location, exellent hotel"
We stayed there with my husband just a couple of days ago. Rooms are smallish but cozy, functional and decorated with Finnish design. Staff is marvellous, so friendly, helpful and always with a smile on their face. Good breakfast, not the widest selection but includes raw food porridge, brewed tea and special coffees. Strong recommendation!
"Great hotel, great value"
We recently decided to stay at Hotel Helka because we had an early appointment on Saturday morning and didn't want to take the bus into Helsinki at 5 AM. First of, location is fantastic, only a 5 minute walk from Kamppi and close enough to restaurants and pubs. Service was very friendly and check-in swift. Rooms are big, very clean and modern. Beds are super comfy and their in-house line of cosmetics smells heavenly. Breakfast was way above average by Finnish standards, including American style pancakes with maple syrup in addition to your usual continental/Scandinavian selection. Unfortunately we didn't have the time to check out the hotel's bar or saunas. Overall excellent value for money. If we ever need a place to stay in Helsinki again, we would definitely choose Hotel Helka!
