Chasing The Northern Lights - Finn Hotel


Perfect place in the middle of city, conveniently located near train station and airport bus station. Shopping malls and restaurants just a few steps away.

It is a simple but comfortable budget hotel. We paid 143 for a double room 2 nights.

It's located at 5th and 6th floor in a building within city center, so there is no facility like gym room, breakfast or spa. Breakfast is available at 7 at nearby cafe.

Reception is located at 6th floor and open from 8am to midnight from Monday to Saturday and 10am to 9pm on Sunday. If you can only check in after reception opening hours, Hotel Finn will provide you door code to enter. Tea and coffee machine is available at 6th floor. You can also buy bottle water or drinks from vending machine beside reception.

Lift is very small, probably can only fit up to 4 pax without luggage. 2 of us with 2 big luggage couldn't move at all in the lift.


Room size is not very big, but bigger than typical small hotel room in Japan. It's a bit worn but overall is comfortable. No safe, no mini bar, no fridge. No wardrobe but there is a place to hang your jacket, and a few hangers are provided. There is one table and chair in the room. LCD TV is mounted on the wall.

The shower facility is very old and worn out. Towel and bed liners are provided.

No aircond in this hotel, which is fine for us during chilly winter time. This could be a problem if you visit Helsinki during summer time.

The mattress is too thin until I could feel the spring.


The location is unbeatable and of course the price is pretty affordable too. But the bathroom facility and the mattress quality need to be improved. Highly recommended for those who are looking for budget hotel in Helsinki city center.
