Hotel Helka

Pohjoinen Rautatiekatu 23, Helsinki, Uusimaa, 00100, Finland

Owned by the Finnish YWCA, this is a pleasant, affordable alternative to the higher-price chain hotels. Although in the heart of the city, the Helka is surprisingly quiet, thanks to its double-paned windows. Furnishings are in light wood and mixed pastels. The restaurant, Helka Keittiö ("Helka's Kitchen"), specializes in classic Finnish dishes. Prices can drop to nearly €100 for a standard double on weekends.

PROS

  • peaceful accommodations
  • central location
