Travellers' Choice 2018 Winner
Certificate of Excellence
GreenLeaders Bronze level
Helka is a four star boutique hotel located in the heart of Helsinki. Our decoration of our comfortable rooms pays homage to Finnish design. Our beds are luxurious Finnish Hilding Anders beds. In the bathroom, you can pamper yourself with aromatherapeutic THANN toiletries. After a relaxing shower, relax by watching a show on our 49” TVs with Chromecast, or by surfing with the most stable Wi-Fi in town. Every room has a kettle for your use. Helka draws its inspiration from Finnish design and icons such as Alvar Aalto and Artek. Our lobby and lounge areas have a beautifully minimalistic look created by classic Finnish furniture, lighting and textiles. True to Finnish traditions, our sauna is open every day. Our Scandinavian breakfast buffet features a versatile selection of local products. Our bar serves customers until late in the evening with a selection that includes a number of Helka's own cocktails. Helka is a discrimination free place where everyone is welcome just as they are.

Great location near the bus station. All attractions within walking distance. Comfortable beds and lovely linens. We slept very well. Tea and coffee facilities in the room. The room is stylish, very quiet and warm.

Our room was large, comfortable, with our own full sauna, separate bedroom, excellent location, and the staff was wonderful. Will definitely stay here again. Close to all, around the corner from the rock church, walking distance to everything!

The hotel is cozy and the breakfast was really good and rich. There are a lot of organic products. Location is good, It's easy to move everywhere and the staff is really friendly. There was a quiet night to sleep, I highly recommend.

Pluses: Very helpful staff, good breakfast and comfortable bed. Minuses: So little room and little bathroom, there is no fridge in the room, one elevator is working and it is too slow. So this is a nice hotel!

I have stayed here several times and it always feels like coming home. Everything is perfect. Now with the renovations there is a warning that there might be some noise, but I did not experience any noise either.

What is the best way of transportation to this hotel from the airport? Is the hotel located in the City center?
Hello, We always recommend using the train. Train takes you from the airport straight to the city center in 30 minutes. From the central station you will reach Helka after a 10 minute walk. we are located on the edge of the city center, in the quiet part of an area called Kamppi. Everything is very easy to reach from Helka. See you soon! Oona H. / Service Manager

"Upgrading to a room with a private sauna is really worth it"
"inside rooms will be great, no sound, overall seems great"
"Comfort Double rooms are good on the higher floors"
"Higher (6th floor) rooms had quite nice view and quite soundproof so no noise from the street."
