"Cosy and small boutique hotel"
Everything in Hotel Helka is great: strategic location, attentive staffs, swift check in and out, great breakfast, sauna and most importantly Finnish style designed room! It's located near the Kampin bus terminal, tram and metro station, 10-15mins walking distance to Helsinki main train station too. The famous rock church is just behind the street, there are plenty of shopping malls or department stores around the vicinity. Single Room is quite spacious for one and I like the minimalist design. Room is clean and tidy, love the comfy bed and pillow as well as the ceiling deco. I'm so surprised to see they're using Thann products in bathroom, it's a bit of comfort for me as an southeast asian to see some familiar brands and scents here in Helsinki. They also kind to allow me to keep my luggage for free for a few days in the hotel after I checked out. Thumbs up for this kind gesture! Although there was renovation going on during my stay period but it doesn't bother me. Will return to Hotel Helka again!
"what a warm welcome !"
It has been years since we were that nicely welcomed in the Hotel . Chris , the receptionist , acted as we were family that entered after a long trip . she was very spontaneous , helped out perfectly with resto recommendations ( not the standard expensive one's but nice , cosy , for locals also and not too expensive ) . As our room was not ready yet , due to new staff , she offered us a glass of wine and a seat in the bar . The rooms are renovated and in a special , non traditional way , I'd call it" Finland's art nouveau " . The inside and the rooms are much nicer then the outside . The breakfast is excellent : cold and warm buffet , pancakes , warm vegetables ,traditional food and berries . Great to start the day with .
"Very good "
I spent two nights at Helka. It's a very modern hotel in the city center. Everything is new. They offer a breakfast buffet. The highlight was the very nice comfortable bed. LOVED IT. I recommend this hotel if you visit Helsinki.
"Efficient, pleasant hotel"
Stayed one night en route to vacation destination. Less than a 10-minute walk from Central Station (railway) and conveniently located to shopping and restaurants. Key card access required for elevators. Quiet room (smart single), clean with a comfortable bed. Would stay again.
"Comfortable in central location"
The hotel is good value for the money. It is centrally located, and is also very close to the central bus station. The room had a distinctly Finnish, simplistic design and was clean. My room faced onto the main street and it was quite noisy. The hotel has an environmentally conscious approach.
