I spent a couple of nights at Kongressikoti and absolutely loved it. Very clean, quiet, charming, and in the heart of Helsinki, next to the Tuomiokirkko. The hotel has a kitchen so you can eat in and a fridge in each room. Absolutely charming.

I stayed three nights at this place and have no reason whatsoever to complain. The room was clean, there was free coffee and the price was great. The location was great with trams and grocery stores just outside. Fridge and sink in the room.

Great location, not the easiest to find (look out for a very small sign on the front of the building). Rooms decent; homely but clean. Useful kitchen area, nice and tidy. Good wifi.Shared toilets and bathroom but again clean and adequate.

I booked a room with shared facilities. Sharing shouldn't be a problem but in this case it was. 2 toilets for 11 rooms some of which are doubles and family rooms is inadequate. The shower arrangement is even worse as there is only 1 shower. The hotel was full throughout the entire period and there were some issues about having...

Worst hotel experience in my life. Charged your card without your consent. Basically, the worst thing could happen to any traveller is to stay in a liar hotel. Worst experience. Scary, offensive and illegal. They will charge you using your credit card information even when you have specifically said to them that you will not pay for the unreasonable fee....

About this case. This guest arrived and he asked us to laundry service. We answered the cost is 5€, and we warned he can’t use the machine without the staff. This information also is in guests folders in rooms, also there is a sticker on the laundry machine. He said he understood it and he will think. Then later, without...

Good value for a small budget hotel. Great location, close to Senate Square, nice view). Cheaper for a private room in Helsinki, i think. Looks old-fashioned. Breakfast not included according to the booking, but they have a small kitchen.

Worst hotel experience in 15 years of travel. Avoid this establishment! I made a guaranteed booking for 3 days, fully paid in advance. The hotel's check-in ends early at 11pm (read the small print), I missed it, as I had just landed at airport. By shortly after midnight, the hotel had resold my room for the entire 3 nights (while...

You can't get cheaper for a private room in Helsinki. The location is excellent in a lovely old building. Close to all stations and central sights, Right behind the Cathedral with a tram stop on your door. Room smelt of tinned meatballs and was small but that is quite usual for a single cheaper room. Coffee and tea provided and...

The hotel agreed to meet us at 12 rather than the normal 2pm. However when we arrived at 12.15pm nobody would answer the doorbell so we were stuck with all of our bags on the street until a lady leaving her apartment let us in. When we then went to the 5th floor and rung the bell a friendly cleaner...

After booking online, I received an email from them saying that I would be charged for four beds instead of one. I asked to cancel the reservation but I was told that they have a three day cancellation policy -- how convenient that they only send the invoice three days before, when cancellation is impossible! While this hotel is centrally...

This order was placed through the site hostelworlg.com by their standard rules We think it is not the fault of the hotel if the guest did not read the conditions when he did it the booking or if the guest has been careless. The hotel can not change booking with partner sites.

“The only bad one might be the single one whose window opens onto the balcony where smoking is allowed. If one doesn't smoke, then there is no other fresh air until the smokers leave and you can re-open the window.”
