Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Nigel66 Perfect experience
I have been staying at the Holiday West Ruoholahti on a weekly basis for the past 2 months.
I have found the staff to be very professional, pleasant, knowledgeable and helpful. Every week I get a great experience staying there and frankly would not stay anywhere else in Helsinki.
For the front desk and catering team - a huge thank you for making my experience of working away from home feel close to being at home.

Helsinki is a super expensive city, so this was an excellent price using points. It's not the city center exactly, but walkable (long walk). We went to the wrong hotel from the airport -- best to book the Airport Taxi in advance (29,5 Euros for 2 persons - can do online) - pickup & delivery service is great. Staff were more than accommodating - hotel is nice and fresh - feels well cared for. Our 9th floor room was SUPER QUIET -- had we not seen other people in the lobby we would have thought we were totally alone in the hotel!
Bar is super spendy too = draft beer (16 oz) was 7 Euros = $10. We were served 1 small dish of free peanuts, however . . .
Sauna is their claim to fame - it's nice if you like that sort of thing. The people here seemed to enjoy it!
Overall - I'd stay here again. There's a small mall across the boulevard - food everywhere is spendy. Bus line & metro is very close - easy walk. Be prepared to do a lot of walking!
The hotel room was the only thing reasonably priced in Helsinki . . . $9 for simple McDonalds salad with a little chicken on top.... $3 for the dollar-menu hamburger, etc.
