The Holiday Inn is everything you would expect; Easy check-inn with friendly staff, clean big american style decor rooms (heavy furniture) and a good bathroom. Got a double room with separate beds, that where surprisingly comfortable. If I stayed with my spouse the 10 cm space between the beds would be annoying. If staying with a friend or colleague it...

Location quite 'remote', there are no restaurants, bars etc around which is quite limiting. Perfect location for the exhibition centre or There is a bar/bistro attached to the foyer, which is lovely but the hours are quite strange. On a Saturday it didn't open until 4pm which left nowhere for us to be able to sit and eat. Rooms are...

My girlfriend and I stayed at this hotel for one night when attending a wedding in Helsinki. The room was a real bargain (via Booking.com), probably because no major exhibitions or other events were going on at the time. It's a fairly large hotel that's not located at the city centre so at times they may have a lot of...

I barely stayed at this Holiday Inn property for two nights. The room was well furnished and luckily had the dark curtains as well, quite a relief in the land of the midnight sun. It is quite far from Helsinki City Centre, but overall the staff were helpful and it was a comfortable stay.

Stayed in this Holiday Inn on my points and at least didn't have to spend cash on it. Otherwise, quite a few things were disappointing a bit.
