When you enter Hotel Helka, you get a strong sense of being in Finland: a hotel that offers an elegant combination of Nordic design and Finnish culture. The hotel's building in the heart of Helsinki dates to 1928 (originally a YWCA and still owned by the Finnish organisation) and was renovated in 2006. Bright and spacious interiors are furnished with top Finnish designer products.
All bedrooms are decorated with light wood furnishings, luxurious beds from Hilding Anders, air conditioning, a kettle and a flat-screen TV with Chromecast streaming.
The hotel has an elegant lobby bar serving all types of beverages from Finnish specialities to international classics and snacks. For smokers there is a stylish cigar room. In the restaurant a buffet breakfast and a-la-carte dishes based on fresh Finnish ingredients are served. The sauna complex on the top floor offers a wonderful view over the city and has a sauna and king-size Jacuzzi.
