The hotel is located near to the Tennispalatsi and Kamppi shopping center. Around 15 min walk from the railway station. The room was clean, breakfast was included in the room price. I'd recommend Helka hotel to a friend.

Friendly service, quiet location near all the attractions and the city centre. Rooms were spacious but a bit dated. Breakfast was decent, but the area was very worn out and dingy. Private parking place was small, but we manage to get a space for free :)
