    Stop the renovations!

    Renovations from hell, drilling, noise, explosions and then interim lifts that hold a maximum of 4 people. Other than that, bed is comfy enough, room served its purpose. Also, perhaps the cleaning girl can come around a bit later, i.e after ive woken.

    Buena relación calidad-precio en el Hotel Arthur de Helsinki


    Nos alojamos solo una noche. Todos los hoteles conocidos estaban llenos. Este hotel ofrece una buena relación calidad-precio y la ubicación es fantástica. Habitaciones cómodas y limpias. Sin quejas.

    Nice city-hotel


    Stayed at the hotel Arthur for two nights, and was satisfied. We had one of the newly renovated rooms, and it was spacious, well-furnished and had good beds. The bathroom was adequate - good shower. We had a quiet room facing the back-yard, and I would imagine that it is a lot more noisy if your room faces the road on the other side.

    The breakfast wasn't all that good, but OK. Great coffee. We ate dinner in the restaurant one of the nights, and their slightly smoked rein-deer is absolutely worth a try! Reception staff was friendly. Good cleaning. The hotel is only a 10-minutes-walk from the city centre, so the location is great for exploring Helsinki. All in all a good central city-hotel that doesn't rip you off.

    Ich warte auf wiedersehen!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

    Basic - that's all


    The reception was small and cramped, but the breakfast was brilliant. Rooms were basic but clean and the location was quiet, but only a few mwters from the city centrum. Price was low, that's good. I'd say I've been to hotels which cost lots more, but are much worse!

    Good Value at Hotel Arthur in Helsinki


    Stayed just one night. All of the big name hotels were full. This hotel offers good value and the location is fantastic. Clean comfortable rooms. No complaints.

    Lovely homely hotel


    Lovely homely hotel. Very helpful staff. We arrived after a 14 hour plane trip from Australia to -10 degrees in the early hours of the morning and the staff were wonderful, allowing us to get into our room early also when we left they opened up the breakfast early. The staff were very helpful and the rooms comfortable, although coffee and tea facilities would have been good. We were a family of 4 and loved our stay in Finland, will be back again if possible.



    Stayed in one of the "suites" or family rooms and I was absolutely horrified. The bathroom was filthy, I refused to shower in it as there were lots of dirty rings in the bathtub, the room had not been swept for ages, the windows didn't close properly, the beds were old and uncomfortable. Good points: the staff were friendly.

    I would not stay here again and would urge anyone to go elsewhere. The photos I saw had nothing to do with the sight I got when I arrived. Thank goodness we were only there for one night!

    Nothing to shout about here


    The staff were very friendly and helpful, and the hotel was quite centrally located, but otherwise it was rather bland. The decor was drab and dull, and our room had lots of stains on the walls from where mosquitos had clearly been squashed (!) - Totally disgusting. Not really much else to say, except beware of Scandanivan television ('Adult' programmes commence after about 6 pm!) and breakfast buffets - In Finland raw peas, salad, ham, cheese, pickled fish and brown rye bread are the norm for breakfast! - And at this hotel no alternative is on offer. I went to meet a friend in the bar of the much smarter Hotel Kempe, where i would definately stay next time

    Reasonable hotel


    This is a reasonable hotel in an excellent location on a side street not too far from the station. The hotel needs a little work on it but still a good place to stay. The breakfast was very good.

    Great central location


    We stayed six nights in the Arthur Hotel in summer 2004. The hotel is probably quite old, but some renovations have been done. Our twin room was OK, but quite small. The good thing of this hotel is its excellent location, right in the city centre and in a quiet side street. Don't expect luxury or a special atmosphere, it is just a hotel as there are so many. But enjoy city life that is so close by.

Yes, we wanted to go to Stockholm, but there is so much more to see in Sweden. On our way north to our first campsite, we decided to stop for coffee at a small roadside place. At this place, we saw some brochures for an Elk Park (aka Moose Park). We decided that we just HAD to see some Mooses ...

    In Helsinki we tried to check into our room but they wanted to charge us a 20 euro fee. Instead we stored our bags for free and had a little wander around the city. We are taking a ferry tomorrow and went to see if we could get tickets. With the Eurail we were supposed to ...

    ... yoga and down in the lobby by 5.10. The students and parents started packing the bus and hoping on at 5.45. A check of all the groups revealed 4 missing students, 2 girls and 2 boys. We used the reception phone to call the rooms, but no luck. I grabbed a key for the boys room and headed up the oft. I knocked (belted on the door) but nothing. So in I went and there is Martin and Billy sound asleep. I rousted at them and Martin was up and freaking out and packing in about 3 seconds, ...

    ... Spotting the student uniform pictured and described I knew that in fact it had never really caught on; next to it was a picture from Signe Brander that reminded me of the others I'd seen. Later I ran, aiming for the slightly below-street-level path across the city that runs in front of he parliament building. From there I ended up spotting a bridge and went over it to Lauttasaari, which has no special features marked on the map, but some nice ...
