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.

  • I have working in Olympic Stadium for about 6 to 7 months and it was more like my home because I work there all day and sometimes night shift.
  • Very nice place to visit. Old, definitely but still looking good. The tower is well worth visiting if weather is good.
  • You get an excellent view from the tower, the price is not expensive.
  • Building is nice but becoming of course a bit old. Employees for visit were sympathetic at all. But still a thing to see when visiting Helsinki.
  • An old Olympic stadium that seems a bit out of date. Nonetheless, it is still serving its purpose.
