          Great place

          Arrived about 1am, short walk from train station, is being renovated a bit at the moment, so entrance a bit scruffy. Check in was efficient if not friendly. Lift up to room which was a suitable size and clean. Then went to a nearby pub which has a vast array of beers (about 2 minute walk).

          Breakfast served until 10:30, which meant we didn't have to get up ridiculously early, but it is definitely worth getting up for. Buffet style had good range of options including bacon (albeit streaky not back), fruits and cereals. Check out at 12 and a luggage room to leave stuff for the day,

          Cheap souvenir shop about 2 minutes away. We then walked through train station to the Church in the Rock, then walked down along a park to the Market Square, I ate reindeer sausages and meatballs, whilst my wife had salmon on bread. Spoke to a weird lady, then saw the Orthodox church, Lutheran Cathedral and back to hotel all within 3 hours.

          Picked up luggage, 3 minute walk to tram, then 15 minute journey to port for our Tallink ferry to Tallinn.

          Highly recommend the hotel for location, price, free internet and breakfast. Everything you need really!

          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.

          Historical Traveler Reviews Arthur Hotel Helsinki

          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.

          Sehr positive Erlebnis,komme gerne wieder.

          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.

Again we struck Helsinki Day, so wondered around in the city during the celebrations, listened to some free music. I like Helsinki better than Stockholm. There are wide tree lined streets, and a pretty harbour. At the harbour we tried fried fish that looked like white bait, but were ...

          I decided to walk to the main harbour square and keep my bag with me till the afternoon so I can go straight back to the hotel when it opens.

          The other highlight of Helsinki was the Design Museum. Despite the fact that only half the exhibition was on display, the history of Finnish design is amazing.

          We said goodbye to the herring festival and caught the plane for the three hour flight to Rome. More about our stay in the Trastevere in the next post. L.

There were some good views here, i then came down, walked around some more and then went to the sports museum, after waiting for it to open, i explored that, didn't take long to see, also free with the Helsinki card.
