Much what you'd expect. Clean, quiet. Efficiency over character so you get to your room, catch up on essential business and sleep.

Rated 2.0 out of 5.0 by colshakti Overall an average experience
The hotel is located at a good location with a good eating joint across the road. One can go for an evening jog on the bridge and by the backwaters.
That is all what is good about the hotel. I had no other choice, as all other hotels were full.
Ya the office shuttle was the saving grace.
all the best

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by caracinho Overall slightly below average
Room: My experience was mixed. The room and cleanliness were ok but the room temperature was about 22 degrees celsius which was definitely too warm by night.
Service: Service at counter was perfect! Service at breakfast was horrible! Unfriendly, unqualified (it took 3 people and 10 min to fill milk into the coffee machine...) and always trying to get people out early. (Cleaning machine started working 30 min before breakfast has ended!)
Food: Coffee was good! Toast was good. Lots of fruits! Toppings were lower standard. Scrambled eggs were odd, boiled eggs were always cold. Forget about the bacon and the the sausages! :-(

Rated 5.0 out of 5.0 by Otto148 Great city-centre hotel
Helsinki is a very open city with its many parks and sea inlets. This hotel takes advantage of the latter having, on one side at least, extensive views across the gulf taking in as many forests as office blocks. The service was easily up to Holiday Inn's usual standards and exceeded it on occasions, with a very friendly welcome.
The hotel as an excellent restaurant though the bar is quite small; the menu offers a good choice of well-cooked food at, for Helsinki, reasonable prices.
If you get the choice, ask for a room overlooking the gulf: my room on this visit, far from my first, faced the business district and was far less interesting.
A little tip for anyone traveling there from the Airport: a taxi costs almost 50 Euros but the airport bus to the central station is only 6.3 and a few minutes on the Metro from there to Ruoholahti is another 2.4 - quite a saving. Getting back, if you have a light suitcase, there is an very pleasant, 25 minute walk to the station - ask at reception!

I use this hotel alot at the moment, every 2 weeks or so, excellent hotel for the business traveller, facilities are very good and have everything you need including a Sauna (very nice and quiet), fitness gym and even a smoking room for those cold days and nights.
Staff remember me when I check in and always very friendly, I really should take the time to find out their names so I could write some personal thanks, food is very good and tasty.
So keep up the good work!

Rated 3.0 out of 5.0 by JayKayHD Small rooms, worn bathrooms, bad breakfast, great staff
it is definitely not a hotel for vacation. Easy to walk to the city center and close to Metro and a shopping place, but next to a highway, windows can not be opened, aircon is acting weird, too warm during the night. Breakfast is not very good, nice selection but poor quality, coffee from a machine that produces very bad coffee. Dinner was nice though but very expensive. The staff at reception and throughout the hotel is very nice and helpful, we felt very welcome. The gym is quite okay, as is the lobby area and restuarant ambiente.
