    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    Disgraceful!

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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

    from

    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.

    ... water runs when it rains. It's quite a beautiful design, and the circumstances of its architecture are worth a quick read on Wikipedia. Jenny had something to attend to and Dmitry wanted to get back to the apartment so we said our goodbyes and Dmitry and I rode back to the apartment. We entertained ourselves on our respective tablets for a couple of hours, then Dmitry made pancakes for dinner. I just can't get over his hospitality. While I enjoyed ...

    ... 3 hours walking the islands. It was really cool. We went into the Suomenlinna museum and information centre where we watched an informative video on the history of the fortress and saw photographs and artifacts. With just a couple of spots of rain for the afternoon in between the rays of sunshine it was a fabulous afternoon. On return to Helsinki we finished the evening with further walking to the Kamppi shopping center. There we found ...

    ... 8211; how cool and progressive.

    We decided that we’d get off at the ROCK CHURCH and then walk the rest of this small city that housed 450,000 Helsinkian’s. Because it’s not a big city, this can be covered off pretty quickly. You can easily see that this city was a favorite of the SPB crowd for vacations as there are so many similarities to the buildings and infrastructure here in this Finnish capital.

    ... br> Finnlines is a Finnish ferry company but owned by Prince Albert of Monaco's Grimaldi shipping group. The Finns have the same pragmatic approach to their odd language as the Hungarians. They are delighted if you can speak a few words, but they all speak fluent English. We tried to say thank you in Finnish, the accent or intonation was never quite right.


    We went to our room. Took a quick turn around the restaurant and bar deck and then ...

    ... themselves.

    There was no passport check, something I've got happily used to in the Schengen Zone. Outside, I understood none of the signs and couldn't orientate where I was with what I'd looked up on the internet previously. So I did what I really don't like doing - I followed everyone else. Good move as it happens - they led me right into central Helsinki and a tram stop where I could catch tram 7A up to my hostel in the Vallila district.
