After spending a few days in Panama, it’s even better to be in another foreign country! Just two weeks ago, I would never really been past Illinois or Ohio. Now, I am discovering the world in a whole new light. We are here in Helsinki, Finland, where it’s not quite so warm, but it is still nice. It is really …
Made it to Helsinki.
I thought it would be a day of less walking than usual, which I need since I hurt my right calf. Pulled or strained a muscle while chasing a fly that got into my room last night in Tallinn. (It's funny but I do I need to be able to walk ..)
Anyway - took a cab to the ferry this morning - and then had to walk …
Whew - long day - and busy.
I started off bright and early at 9:00 at the Tin Tin Tango Cafe. Web searches showed that they served coffee and had self serve laundry - hard to find in this part of Europe. Gotta love Google maps. The place was close to my hotel. Got there to find that there's one stacked washer and dryer in the cafe. The guy …
Badly in need of a pedicure. And a foot massage. I've spent more time walking in Tallinn and Helsinki than the whole 2 weeks in Vilnius. And I thought I did a lot of walking in Vilnius.
Got up late and headed to the Tin Tin Tango cafe again. They have the best lattes I've had on this whole trip - and I've had some pretty good ones. (the …
My last day in Helsinki - and on this trip. More parks and statues of animals. I can't believe how many parks there are in this city. And the people use them. A symptom of short summers and cabin fever in the winter? Or more to do with not wanting to blast and cart away the limestone that's everywhere. It would be like building a city in the …

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.
