    Very good

    Clean and you can borrow an umbrella for free

    Small airless room, coffee and food machines were turned on, but didn't want to receive money so they were unavailable

    It's a good place to one-night stay, spetially for late arriving fly to the Vantaa airport.

    I liked the courtesy and responsiveness of the Hotel Ava's staff. And most of all I liked the availability of the kitchen, where we could get a tea or coffee at any time and even to heat some foods. It is a great possibility after walking all over the city during the whole day. Also I liked the prices and almost central location of this hotel. For me, it was the best choice if compare with other european hotels I have stayed at the last three years.

    Good hotel, clean, safety, with a small kitchen in the room

    A little bit far away from the center.

    Fabulous

    Located in a nice and calm uptown district, but close to the main streets to get anywhere by car. View from the 8th floor is awesome

    I wish there were air-conditioning. Too hot and stifling in mid-summer, especially in a room on the sunny side.

    Perhaps only the fact that parking was free of change.

    The hotel rooms resembled low market student accommodation. These are only few examples of why this is the case. 1) The room had a small wet room with a shower head sticking out of the wall. This was separated from the toilet by a smelly shower curtain. Of course this meant that the entire bathroom got wet after taking a shower. 2) The room itself was very small and there was almost no space to put away our luggage. 3) Both windows could only be opened a tiny little bit which made it almost impossible to let any fresh air in (because the temperatures were quite high it made the room feel almost like a greenhouse) 4) The staff looked uninterested and cold. After we arrived we realized that there was no soap in the bathroom. We went to the reception straight away as we wanted to wash our hands after a long journey. We weren't even told a simple 'sorry'. Overall this made our stay in Helsinki quite a bad experience as we expected much better from a three star hotel.

    2-3 room appartments with kitchent. It like you stay at home.

    At the moment they are doing redecoration and hotel free parking is partly occupied. So there is a good chance to park a car outside the hotel.

    Cozy and clean, we stayed at 7th floor and the view was not bad! It's not too far from the central city and I did enjoyed to take the tram everyday:)

    They have sauna and gym. In my room there were a fridge and microwave oven. Wi-Fi is not free but laptop with internet is available for 15 minutes

    Far from the city center. Beds are too soft (for me).

    nice and clean hotel, suitable to spend a weekend

  • 6.2
    Good

    The hotel is in a working-class area of Helsinki, quite far from center (i used the tram - 7A to downtown, 7B back), in a quiet neighborhood. The only thing remarkable is probably that Ville Vallo of H.I.M. was born here. As of the hotel, the price was very good - 72 euros without the breakfast - that would be another 7.5, the room reasonable, with basic equipment - 2 beds, clean sheets, two towels per bed. Bathroom with shower - directly on the floor. The only "luxury" was a TV, unfortunately with only 9 channels for free (mostly local, but without the usual dubbing of English speaking movies/ series), the others available for 10 euros/24 h. The area is far from nice, but as I used to stay in downtown, so it didn't bother me. As a guest you may use the kitchen and there are also wash machines available, plus the sauna , of course.

    The atmosphere is somehow cheap, as from a Hostel rather than a Hotel. The location is inconvenient for exploring the city (the last 7B tram leaves around 23: 25 from downtown)
