Overall is good. We changed our room. The previous one was not warm enough (winter time), the hotel staff dealt with this problem quickly and we moved to a new one (warmer).

Great place to stay in Helsinki
Hotel Helka is a great place to stay in Helsinki. Close to everything including the central train station. The staff was very pleasant and helpful. The breakfast included in the room rate was excellent, lots of choices and good hours of operation. Highly recommended.

Location - few mins to Kamppi station, then connect all tourists places by metro. A tram/ bus station at the back of hotel too. Room - simple, clean, spacious enough for 1 person Breakfast - busy in the peak morning, but food and drinks refilled fast. Overall is nice.

The room was not cleaned, even found crisps on under my blanket which means that they probably event changed the sheets.
