The Indigo is a large modern hotel in the centre of Helsinki.
Situated on Bulevardi and close to the City Park, it’s a short walk to the main shopping centre, railway station and Kauppatori
market square and harbour.
Our stay was a leisure break which we enjoyed with a friend. We stayed in room 810 and our friend in 808. Our rooms had lovely south-easterly rooftop views across the city.
The rooms are functional, bright and clean with a good sized bathroom and shower with Aveda toiletries. There is a useful iPhone compatible alarm clock/music dock.
On the ground floor next to reception, a bar and small restaurant are situated to the side, as well as a business centre.
The bar isn't overly comfortable, warm or welcoming. It's functional and offers some local beers too. The reception staff operate the bar during quieter times meaning you have to wait to be served when there are late check-ins.
The breakfast served in the restaurant area was a continental style hot buffet with cereals, fresh fruit, cheeses and cold meats. I asked for poached eggs but was informed they can't make them, contrary to the menu. Omelettes were available to order.
In the basement there’s a small gym and sauna.
My only real criticism was having informed reception that the television in our room wasn’t working, nothing was done about it but then I guess we didn’t spend much time in our room as Helsinki is such a great city to visit! I mentioned this to reception again on check-out but they appeared not to be interested other than mentioning theres a switch in the cupboard that could have been the issue. [Less]
