Where to stay in Helsinki

Set yourself up with easy access to many of Helsinki's most popular tourist sites by staying in the city's bustling and modern center. You'll find that the area is packed full of shops, restaurants, and bars, plus it's conveniently close to both the city's main train station and energetic waterfront. Though there's certainly a range of options when it comes to big-name hotel chains and upscale accommodation, prices are generally higher throughout most of the center, so consider staying at a hostel to cut down on costs. Hostels typically offer a solid location in or near the city center at a fraction of the cost of a big chain.

  • The Bonk Industries exhibition was out of this world. Make sure to google Bonk Industries as you leave, with their free wifi. Best art exhibition I've ever seen by so much. Descriptions are the best.
  • Attended a nice function here. And per Martin Lunn's review have added some Bonk pictures!
  • Pretty eye-catching building which houses the mayor's office.
  • The city hall provides shelter just to Homeless with documents from Helsinki. Quite discriminating.
  • Fine from the balcony of the City Hall, the Interior of the great and great views of the market square.
