We were only guests one night. Hotel was sold out and despite reserving months ago, we did not get a harbor view, which would have been nice. Room was large and nicely appointed. No outlets and poor lighting in bathroom. Agree with other reviewers that breakfast buffet is poorly designed (cereals, condiments, and yogurts are in dark corner that can...

We enjoyed our stay at Hotel Haven very much, but a few things keep this property was reaching 5 stars. During our trip to Finland, Stockholm and Denmark, hence three separate hotels, we were able to experience some distinctions amongst them. For Hotel Haven, the staff is excellent. Very friendly and accommodating. One minor annoyance was that I had contacted...

Hotel Haven has a very central location for a tourist – you may walk to almost all of the attractions in Helsinki and you have the harbor with the marketplace just in front of the hotel. We had a room with a view of the harbor which is nice as there is a lot of traffic of boats coming and...

Had a long weekend here (26-29 July 2013) and enjoyed some spectacular weather. The rooms were clean, large and comfortable (we'd opted for the cheapest). The reception staff were charming and very helpful. The bar was good, with a great barman, although it wasn't cheap (nowhere is cheap to drink in Helsinki). Only criticism was the buffet breakfast, two out...

We visited for weekend get-a-way to Haven Helsinki. Location is good, you can walk every main sites at Helsinki. Esplanad-park is just behind the corner. Rooms very pretty large (we visited Lux-room), clean and tradional styled. Bed was H(e)avenly comfort. Stuff was very friendly, bar and restaurants are at high level. But if there is something negative it will be...

This was our second stay at Hotel Haven. Our Lux room had a harbor view which allowed us to watch one of the tall ships sail in and dock. In our opinion, the room was overcrowded with furniture making it difficult for two people to navigate without running into a piece of furniture or each other. The management offered to...

4 of us stayed for 2 nights and were very satisfied with the hotel. Staff were friendly and helpful with good English. The buffet breakfast was good although some of the cooked options were charged as extras. The rooms were a good size with comfortable furnishings and a fine bathroom. We had dinner one evening which was good but a...

I really enjoyed my stay here. I think the location was perfect - about two blocks from the main market area and water - close enough to explore easily but on a quiet street. It was also an easy walk to the main train station, although too long to do easily with lots of luggage. The staff was very helpful...

We stayed here overnight after having a super holiday on the Baltic Sea with friends at their summer house. The service at the Haven is amazing, the beds are amazing, the food is pretty darn good and the bar is one of the best whiskey bars in all of Finland. We had so much fun here, and the staff was...

After lots of research on TA, my husband booked this for my birthday and I wasn't disappointed! 5* all the way and hard to find fault. Let's start with the bad things, as there were hardly any problems and we literally were looking for things to find fault with. There aren't curtains to keep the light out in the bathroom,...
