Charming and romantic hotel in Helsinki, Finland

Couples will adore the Helka, an independent hotel in Helsinki, Finland.  Thanks to its clean rooms and friendly staff, this 4 star hotel does not skimp on providing guests with that luxury feel and treatment.  In addition, there's no more convenient location for travelers with an interest in both the natural and metropolitan features of this area of Finland.  Guests are within walking distance of many of the city’s attractions, and only a short drive or bikcycle ride to parks and other natural wonders.

The Helka, located in the Kamppi area, is very close to the Natural History Museum of Helsinki, the Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art, Ateneum Art Museum and National Museum.  Finlandia Hall is also close by and a great to visit if you are interested in modern architecture or Finland’s politics.

Enjoy a free breakfast every morning

Start the day right with a complimentary breakfast cooked by the friendly staff.  There's also an on-site bar/lounge for drinks in the evening, and guests can order room service at specific hours.  If you don't have a laptop, just visit the hotel’s convenient computer station with free Wi-Fi which also available in every room.  There is a small surcharge for self-parking, but offsite parking is available at discounted rates.

This is a great hotel for couples, but the business center and meeting rooms make the Helka a good place to take clients or plan events.  The hotel is less likely to have kids running around than other hotels which specialize in accommodating families.  On days when you don't want to go outside, relax at the sauna or visit the library.

Comfortable rooms with views of Helsinki

The rooms at the Helka have bright, shower-only bathrooms, and features that include a minibar, Plasma TV and an ergonomic desk; standard amenities in 4 star rooms.  Guests, who are more interested in location and room comfort than the usual bells and whistles, will appreciate the service and style offered at the Helka. 

The bottom line

Situated close to the Radisson Blu Royal Hotel Helsinki, the Helka provides their guests with a balance of city and nature, a touch off the beaten path from the strict family and business hotels.  The simplicity implied in its name is no fluke, the hotel offers no-frills but solid quality.  If you plan to travel to Helsinki with a special someone, the Helka should be your first choice.

Well-kept contemporary bedrooms have white walls and huge photos of flora and fauna on the ceilings.
