Helsinki and area to stay meeting my requirements/wishes

Jump to last reply

Long time Fodors poster/info seeker going to Helsinki in November. Have searched the site but looking for the right info on the area of the city to stay. . Here are my requirements/wishes or what I am looking for. I am a young minded straight male in my mid 40s. (I say straight because someone always asks) I travel alone. Like to get an hotel in an area with bars and restaurants to walk to at night and not far away. Irish Pubs, beer houses, Nicer bars are OK. Not much of a dancer so not really looking for dance clubs. (although there was Berlin !!! ) Like to be by Metro to get around the city and from airport. Where is that in Helsinki?

If you have a particular hotel suggestion in an area like this, that would also be great. I usually stay in a 2 to 3 star. As long as clean, safe and can make reservations online, I don't need much more than that. A little old is OK by me. I can eat breakfast elsewhere or at the hotel, don't really care. For restaurants, I will always find something to eat but a decent meal a day is good. Just not $120 for one person.

I have had the best of luck over the last 10 years using this site so I am sure you will not disapoint. (and I have a guidebook already so that suggestion is not needed !) Thanks in advance
