    Very clean. Very close to central station and to bus terminal. Good selection for buffet breakfast.

    Superb

    Excellent location within the city.

    It is a problem of not only Holiday Inn Helsinki City Centre Hotel, but some other hotels in Helsinki, as well. Sometimes it is impossible to pay using Visa debit card. An explanation of this fact is difficulties in connection with foreign banks.

    Superb

    One of the reasons why we chose this hotel was its location. It was right beside the train station. Located outside the train station were the tram and bus stops. It was very convenient - just a couple of mins walk to the senate square & market. We enjoyed the breakfast and was really happy about this choice even though it was a bit expensive.

    Hotel is located in a central helsinki location. The staff was very helpful and service excellent. Especially the sauna in this hotel is awesome.

    The gym could be better. Now it's only couple of aerobic devices.

    Superb

    The sauna was very clean and relaxing - a bit small though. If there were more than two people it would not be usable. The rooms were standard size, the beds were very comfortable, there was a restaurant open late and even though I looked out onto the bus terminal there was no noise. 2 minutes to the 3T tram (good for tourists) and the metro. Also the end stop for the Finnair Airport bus. As a business traveller or visitor to the city I would stay here again.

    Fabulous

    Very clean facility and great location. Friendly and helpful staff. Clean and nice sauna for free! Good breakfast!

    May be it is because I stayed in the least expensive room but there was no bathtub and only shower booth available. Wish it was available. Room service hours were only limited to restaurant operatation hours so no late night meal available.

    1. free parking. 2. something special in the breakfast. In Finland many hotels always offer you something, ... So, it was better than in Italy and too European for Finland... P.S. by the way it was one diamond - tomato juce!!!

    Great location! - the central railway is right next to the hotel, together with bus station and good bus communication with the airport. I loved the interior design, free Internet access (cable) and great service. The bathroom is fully equipped (soap, shampoo, hairdryer) + you get coffee/tea facilities in the room. Nice view outside the window is also a plus!

    I loved everything about the hotel!

    Exclusive

    A perfect location for those who arrive and depart by train or plane. The Finnair Airport Bus parking is located in several steps just right in front of hotel's main entrance. For those who are not afraid to walk a lot - the most city's sights can be reached by walking from hotel's location as well as the huge trade centers like Stockmann, Forum, Kamppi - for those who like to make shopping. The reception personnel was very friendly. The room was also very nice.

    In my horrible opinion evertything in hotel is very good foreseen, so I found nothing to complain about...

    Great location, good breakfast

    For 200 Euros/night in Helsinki, you expect more from an hotel. Toilet paper in the bathroom was worst than "gas station" paper.
