  • Hall of City Hall is open for free visits. During our stay here was held an exhibition of works by Slovak photographers to view for free. In the Hall there are many different advertising-information materials in various languages, including Russian. Here you can also make free use of the Internet and even make a printout to 5 sheets for free. The guide told us that even free to drink a cup of tea or coffee, but we did not see where it can be done, however, before us such a goal and did not stand. There is also a free toilet. In General-is the perfect place for guests to get some information about the city, surf the net and just sit and relax. Click here-you won't regret it!

  • There is quite a lot to see and useful information to get from this city hall. It is very well-equipped with plenty of space. It is amazing that it operates even in Sunday afternoons. 
  • This is not a building you will find easily, especially if you are taken away by the Helsinki Senate Square, yet it is very close and it looks brand new because it is very well taken care of. Just a s...  more »

  • The location of this place is incredibly convenient. Step outside of the train station and you're practically on the front steps. I stayed here for several days while attending a conference and have no complaints. The food at the restaurant was great.
  • I stayed this hotel to attend conference. Basically, nice and clean hotel. Staffs are very kind. Breakfast seems good. Room is bit small. Sometimes, the they don't clean up room. I am not sure this is the cheap pricing for conference rate reservation.
  • The service was spectacular. I can't thank the workers enough. Especially the ones that were working the breakfast area. For 3 mornings, the entire area was filled beyond belief but they kept up with everyone's demands and were never rude, or angry. They did everything with a smile. It was incredible. They even opened up the breakfast area 30 minutes earlier so that we could have breakfast before our big event. I am so thankful to the entire staff and crew that took care of us for 10 days. The cleaning crew also did a wonderful job. It was nice to come back to a very clean hotel every day after long activities. Thank you so much holiday inn!
  • It's in the heart of the city .... The nearest building to train station.
  • Great location, close to public transport. Got upgraded to an executive room, was quite functional with all amneties. Was a bit small though.
