This was my least favourite Holiday Inn that I've stayed at in any country so far. We were in room 475 (215 sq ft, 1 queen) and it smelled disgusting. As soon as you step in, the bathroom is to the right and you get a strong smell of an old dump someone had taken. There must be something wrong with the plumbing, because the odour never went away. If we hadn't arrived so late in the night due to a delayed flight and were trying to catch some sleep before our morning flight, I would have asked to ... Read more

All in all an OK airport hotel with big enough rooms. We had two big luggage, but there was enough room to move around even they were both open on the floor. We left early, so we chose an option without breakfast. The parking costs 10? / 24 hours which seemed to be a standard rate among the airport hotels.

We all know that Holiday Inn is a cheap solution, but sometimes price-quallity value is lower than standards like this time. Room was clean, but with an old and negleted appearance. Toilet was bad smelling and with bad looking formiture. Taking into account hall, restaurant and breakfasts the overall value increses.

I had 6:50 am flight leaving Helsinki. This hotel was a perfect location. They have free Shuttle Bus every 20min. And only took10 min. to get to the airport terminals. Very good service. They email me a shuttle bus schedule when I called hotel from US. After touring Helsinki, I took Finnair bus (6.3 euro)from outside of Central Station to Airport Terminal 2 and took elevator down to the arrival hall. Hotel Shuttle Bus just outside of arrival hall on platform #21. Hotel room is big and clean.

I arrived late to my room and had the usual Holiday in welcome, very courteous and professional. The room was Holiday Inn Standard. No surprises here. The location is listed as airport, but you??ll need a cab. The Concierge service in the morning was brilliant, I got my taxi straight away and all the local knowledge I needed for my day. Obviously the breakfast is great, and here is no exception, a clean well cared for breakfast area, so familiar and welcoming for business traveller.

Nice airport hotel only few kilometers from Helsinki Airport. Free hotel bus 1-2 times /hour. I enjoyed breakfast. Breakfast starts early, so you can catch your flight easily. Comfortable rooms. Hotel is quite far from shops/bars etc activities. Long term parking possible. Good hotel for sleeping before/after flight.

Stayed two nights, business related. Small, but clean and tidy rooms, nice bed and I had a good night sleep, which is important! Using the shower caused a small flood, not a problem for me, but I feel sorry for the room cleaning personnel. Reception polite and professional. Had two meals at the hotel restaurant, not very impressed over the quality vs. price, nothing more than an "ok minus" Conclusion: ok, but nothing more.

The room was in need of a serious make-over. The furniture was very old. The "air conditioning" did very little to anything to keep the room at a reasonable level during our two night stay. Occasionally it would kick on and make a very loud fuss until we turned it off (CLANK CLANK CLANK CLANK!!). We never considered the room was at a comfortable sleeping temperature during our stay. T he pillows were large and awful. The "soft" pillow was harder than any pillow I would normally sleep with. The... Read more

This hotel is geared up to serve guests that are having an early flight or land late and want to have a rest. While it was previously immaculate, it starts to look old and weary. If in the restaurant water is leaking from the air-con unit and there is a pale, it doesn't convince. Room air-conditioning was not working thus needed to open the window. On my next visit I will use another hotel.

OK hotel for stay over close airport. Free bus transfer from Airport over hotel (see photo's for times). The bathroom in my room had a small shower screen which was not sealed to the floor - so don't leave anything on the floor when showering. The outlet by the side of the bed was linked to the light switch so my phone stopped charging when I turned the lights off (using a switch that was behind the pillows). OK for one night sleepover but with limited expensive food options would not be my fir... Read more

The room was small and basic, but that is sort of what we expected - that's just the way hotel rooms are in Northern Europe so no surprises there. Although the room at Holiday Inn was probably at the smaller side of the scale. But just to have a sleep after arriving late at the airport that was just fine. My main disappointment was that when I made the booking, the reservation website had indicated "breakfast included" - and that was probably the reason why I picked up Holiday Inn from the very...

We arrived at almost midnight and had to be out the door before 5:30 a.m. This was our oasis in between and it was a shame we couldn't stay longer. The hotel serves its purpose well - a convenient and comfortable place to stay when your arrival or departure through Helsinki is too late or too early to make connections.

Good location next to a big shopping centre. The shuttle service to the terminals runs every 20 minutes most of the day, and it only takes roughly ten minutes and is free of charge. The staff were very friendly and helpful, in the reception as well as in the restaurant. We had dinner in the restaurant and were very pleasantly surprised of the wide selection as well as the quality. Breakfast is served from 5 in the morning, very good for early birds.

Rooms are small (compared to Rantasipi or Cumulus) but are more cosy and modern. Not a good option if you need huge spaces, but was alright for me. Good for a 1 night stay. Has the signature holiday inn feel when you are walking along the corridors. Staff are very friendly, and the breakfast spread was GOOD!! Gym was rather under-equipped though

I booked this hotel because we were going to be arriving at 00:55am and didn't want to trek into the centre that late. The hotel's website says the free shuttle service goes to 1.10am. When I called the hotel reception to check if the shuttle could be booked, the receptionist told me she would put me through to someone who spoke better English!

Most people only stay at airport hotel for one night, between flights; so usually you don't care much about the facilities as long as you get a comfortable bed. This is just a standard Holiday Inn chain hotel, however, I enjoyed my stay there because unexpectedly they also have a few free bicycles to explore the area (this is not mentioned on the hotel's website).

This was a great hotel for one night when we had a long layover in Helsinki. Great amenities, great breakfast, great sauna, and great fitness room. We enjoyed our stay.

Great place for a short stay--or a longer stay for that matter. It was wonderful!

I have stayed at this hotel a couple of times and it is what it it, a airport hotel. Has a decent restaurant but I prefer to walk over the road to the shopping centre and eat at the Greek restaurant.

A big let down is the rooms as they are a little disappointing but hey it's an overnight for the airport.

Holiday inn Helsinki-Vantaa can be reached well by a non-stop bus that runs between the airport and three hotels. Rooms are pretty small and nothing very special, yet they are clean and serve well their purpose. Breakfast begins at 5:00 am, which is excellent for those with early flights. I have never stayed longer than one night in this hotel, so I do not know what kind of facilities they have for those who stay longer.

The Holiday Inn close to Helsinki airport is very convenient with a regular bus shuttle to and from the airport. The shuttle runs every 20 minutes (except for a break in the middle of the day) which runs in a circle route serving multiple hotels. You can get it from Stand 21 in Terminal 2 (I think it was stand 10 in Terminal 1). The hotel is nice with nice rooms and well equipped public areas.
