We had such a nice stay in Hotel Finn. The room was nice and clean and the location of the hotel is excellent. The staff was also very helpful. Would definitely recommend this hotel.

It's not easy to find a city center hotel in Helsinki for less than 100 euro a night. this is one that we found and it's very central. Everything about it is simple but for a short stay it's perfect. The rooms were clean and the staff were friendly and helpfull. At the time the hotel didn't do any breakfast but right across the street there is a pub that does a good breakfast.

The hotel is situated on the 6th floor of a office building in the very center of the city, a ten minutes walk from railway station and Finnair bus-stop (platform 30 behind restaurant next to station).
It's a good hotel with small but very clean rooms without shower.
Reception closes after 1 am but you can enter the hotel using a entry code and/or a Card.
The hotel is situated in a small street with very nice bars and the main shopping center (Stockmann and Esplanade) at five minutes walk.

The hotel is located in the city center. I stayed here for one night and I am very pleased. First of all, I could check in early. It allowed me to explore the sights lie within easy reach, such as Stockmanns, Atheneum Art Museum and Kiasma. On the second day as I could reach on foot to the Senate Square and Lutheran Cathedral.

The room was well equipped. There I had the basic equipment (TV, air conditioning). There is a high-speed wireless inernet wi-fi.


Śniadnaia very tasty. The hotel staff very friendly.

The only downside is accessible from the airport, which takes a long time.

I recommend!

This hotel is in the heart of Helsinki and is on the 5-6 floor and the reception is on the same floor. in my openion this one is only to be as a last resort. If you are desperat for a stay overnight or every other hotel is fully booked.
The receptionists are lovely and very helpful. They will endeavour to get you to your destinatin.
If your aim is to spend the time out and about and only to crash and sleep the night in your room then it might work for a short stay.

Room Tip: Ask for a room with a bathroom, otherwise you will have to share. the hotel is 200-300 meters from...

We stayed plenty of places in Scandinavia during our trip of similar price to this place. I was convinced by some of the management comments on here and website pictures that this place was on the turn for the better. The location is good but the girl at reception put us into a room on floor five which was smelly in the extreme. The drain in the dimly lit bathroom stank and made the bathroom a no go area. Upon returning from a days sightseeing we asked to be changed. The polite young man on reception said he would have been happy to oblige but there was now no free rooms. He agreed that the room stank. I look forward to hearing the management response on this... I'd say don't be conned by the 'we are in the process of changing it' line as this seems to have been the excuse on here for months now. Helsinki itself is the least interesting of the Baltic capitals we visited. Yes the room is well sized, but only good for those with an interest in staying in a circa 1985 bedroom

First of all, I am terribly sorry about you enduring such an experience.

We have only recently received multiple complaints about the drainage in the fifth floor. All the non-ensuite rooms in that floor have been put out of sale and are going to be renovated during october, after which we move to the ensuite ones.

As to the management responses posted earlier. Currently we have finalized the renovations on all the triple rooms and quadruple rooms (or L and XL) and also on six ensuite double rooms, so generally half of the hotels rooms are now finished. We are renovating the rooms at a highest possible pace (it is hard not to bother customers if a high amount of rooms are being renovated at the same time) so changes definitely are happening. Hopefully the process will be finalized before next summer.

I sincerely wish you can in the future grant the hotel another chance to prove to be a small, convenient and nice place to stay in the center of Helsinki.

I had read very favourable reviews of this hotel so had a certain expectation upon arriving. On first appearance, one is greeted by friendly staff and a nice chilled-out ambiance. However, there seemed to be a problem with the drainage, resulting in a nasty smell coming from the bathroom. We asked to be moved to a different room it was so intolerable. Curiously, they didn't even question our request, or go and look at the room. This smacked of this perhaps being a recurring problem. The other room we were moved to was thankfully, much better. However there was still a smell of a drain in the bathroom. It seems that one's experience of Hotel Finn is entirely dependent on what room one is given. A lottery that results in reviews like this.
