Historical Traveler Reviews Crowne Plaza Hotel Helsinki
If modern is your wish
Just recently opened and renovated as Crowne Plaza it's obviously still in good condition. The rooms I've been to have been quite large. Interior of the hotel is very modern, somewhat too modern for my taste.
No free parking but a small private garage. The location is pretty good. It's not too far to take a walk down town if it's not extremely windy.
One minus is that if it's weekday night and you want to sit over a beer, hotel's pub is closing quite early and there's not that much choices nearby.
Excelente ubicación, personal agradable
El Crowne Plaza está céntricamente ubicado en una magnífica zona para pasear en Helsinki. Las habitaciones son grandes y cómodas. El personal es muy solícito y agradable. Un gran desayuno buffet con una gran variedad de alimentos para satisfacer a cualquier paladar.
Excellent location, friendly service
The Crowne Plaza is centrally located and in an excellent walking area of Helsinki. The rooms are large and comfortable. The staff is solicitous and very friendly. The breakfast buffet is large with such a large variety of foods that every taste will be satisfied.
Simply wonderful !!!
Everything was perfect ! The decoration in the hotel was amazing. Everything was so nicely furnished ! The rooms are really modern and comfortable (with plasma-tv-set and king size bed). There is a bath and floor-heating in the bathroom. The staff was very friendly and the lobby really attractive. If you ask to have a room on the last floors (8th or 9th), you are gonna have a wonderful view across the green parks, to the city and the cathedral ! The breakfast is very tasty, and there is a nice fireplace in the restaurant !
This hotel gives you an amazing accomodation in Helsinki !!
I stayed here for two nights in September 05 and was very impressed with the hotel. The room was comfortable and reasonably spacious although the bathroom was a strange shape with a very short bath. The free internet connection in the bedroom was excellent. Breakfast was good, although not well organised - I went to the buffet and someone sat down at my seat whilst I was away. Slightly out of the town centre, but a pleasant walk (15 minutes).
Nice refurbished hotel
This was formerly the Sokos Hotel Hesperia and has been refurbished over the last year. It is therefore very clean and modern with nice in-room features such as LCD screens and bath robes. also has a free DSL connection in rooms which is a big positive. (also wifi in lobby but this is paid for - but coffee and tea are free). the spa, gym and pool are also open now and very good - there is a wonderfully hot Finnish sauna and whilst the pool is chilly is is definitely refreshing after the sauna heat. I found the hotel location ideal - not too far from things but away from the bustle of the centre. It overlooks a lovely lake, Töölönlahti, which you can walk around or by en route to town centre. it is about a 10-15 min walk to the railway station, and there is a tram service right by the hotel for those who prefer this. it is a bit further from the main shopping and harbour area of the city - c 30 min walk - but again one can go by tram. The Finnair airport bus stops behind the hotel both inward and outward (technically the stop is behind the next door Scandic). there are a couple of restaurants nearby and c 100 yards behind the hotel there is a small supermarket and more cafes and restaurants. All in all, highly recommended. note that trip advisor actually has two differently named entries for this hotel.
Excellent but quiet location, very good hotel
Ten minute walk from the very center (six minutes from the avoidable Kiasma, Contemporary Art Gallery) a very good hotel and a good service, to be a Crowne Plaza.
If you stay on a weekend, you can safely park the car in the crimeless streets in the nearby.
Liked this Hotel a lot
Spent a couple of nights here & was fortunate enough to be upgraded. My bedroom was large & comfortable, with both wireless (at a cost) and free high speed internet available. The bathroom was wonderful - spacious with a huge deep bath for relaxing in in the evening, heated floor & well lit. The Hotel itself was tastefully decorated and the restaurants provided a decent choice of evening meals and an excellent breakfast selection. The staff were both efficient & friendly. If I was there on vacation, I would have have found it a bit too far out of the main shopping/entertainment area. However, there is a taxi rank right outside the Hotel for those who don't fancy the 15 minute walk into the main thoroughfare.
The rooms in this hotel are scrumptious! However, I'm not sure its finished yet, I was really disappointed to find that the promised swimming pool and health suite don't open till the summer! It is also a good 15 minute walk north of the main train station which is north of most of the shops etc! The staff were friendly and helpful and as I said already the rooms are VERY well designed.
Good Location - Nice People
This is a really nice, if modern hotel. The staff are very pleasant and the room rates pretty good for this part of the world.

... on Friday but Alex hadn't had a chance to see yet. As it turns out, it's a great thing we went back, because this time the entrance to the prison itself was open, while on Friday I'd only seen the courtyard. The place is amazing -- it's enormous, for one thing, with cell blocks that seem to go on forever. The whole thing feels like it's about to fall apart at any second, and in most countries we probably wouldn't have been allowed to go in it since I'm sure it's a ...
... had a side of French fries and a glass of French red wine. Twas a very good meal! We continued exploring and found a little courtyard, where a screen and projector was set up, as well as tables and chairs. It turns out that someone working at the café that uses the courtyard organizes playing independent foreign films there every night. We considered staying to watch but the movie was in French, with Finnish subtitles so it didn’t sound very appealing to me. I was ...
... a narrow channel through which some of the ferry boats have to pass. We just miss the first incoming ferry as we are too low but make for higher ground for a good view of the outgoing. We go down to the rocky beach and sit admiring the view across the numerous small islands. A cruise ship passes through the gap, amazing they don't even slow! We then head back following the coast track. There are lots of families enjoying ...
... Hesperia Park.
Our final destination was Temppeliaukio kirrko (Temple Square Church commonly called The Rock Church), a beautiful Lutheran Church built entirely into the bedrock and quarried stone. Nothing prepares you for the beauty and uniqueness of its architecture. From outside the church has little presence, but once you step through the very accessible entry the round interior surrounds you. The church has a circular copper roof spiralling out from a ...
... you ask why we had to go to the RIddarholmskyrkan? In her wide expanse of reading, MJ had read about a French woman called Eugenia Desiree Clary who was the daughter of a Merchant in Marseilles, who met and got engaged to Napoleon Bonaparte before he became anyone important, subsequently married a Marshall of France (Jean-Baptist Bernadotte), who was adopted by the Swedish King and founded the Bernadotte Dynasty, which is still the royal house ...
