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
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.
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.

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
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.

... But Vicki asked for one on the Street not the inner courtyard. This wasn't a problem and one of the very pleasant staff had moved them over before we had even finished checking back in. We are lucky we were able to check in early. First item in agenda was a walk along the street to look at the wooden church then a stop at one of the famous cafes we had passed on the jump on bus tour. The church wasn't open yet but the coffee and pastry at the cafe ...

Helsinki airport is all white wood, polished concrete and low pendant lighting. I suspect the whole building was delivered in a “flat pack” from Ikea. The place is spotlessly clean, large enough to accommodate thousands and designed superbly. In fact the ...
My first full day touring around Helsinki! The city is fabulous, shops and restaurants everywhere, many small things to see and do. It's the complete opposite of Russia and I'm loving it! Visited the Senate Square and Uspenski Cathederal. Walked around Market Square and met an amazing jeweler whom I bought a ring from. He takes photographs of the landscape of Finland and then ...
... three people a little bit up ahead pulling carts behind them full of cheap containers of alcohol they purchased on the ferry at the Duty Free shop. The first one somehow got his wheel stuck on the escalator and it toppled over so the two people behind him got their carts toppled over, too, and it created a big people jam. The next people coming down were falling over the ones in front, including a few elderly people and people holding babies. One girl from Semester at Sea standing ...
... day but probably getting too late to head back for a swim so we had dinner in the city - ended up having tapas which was really good. All the usual chorizo, gambas, squid, patata bravas, omelette, olives and goats cheese with breads. But the crispy sweet churros with chocolate sauce to finish was the highlight for me and the boys - and Andy had a plate of cheeses with rosemary honey and peach chutney which kept him happy.
