Kongressikoti Hotel Helsinki

This hotel is located in Snellmaninkatu which is around a 20 minute walk to the centre or you can jump on the 7a tram just outside the hotel and be in the centre in 10 minutes. It is on a quiet hill and just around the corner from a military museum and a peaceful park. Also on the street is a quiet bar and some small shops so everything you need for your stay at Kongressikoti.

The hotel is run my a women who's name I didn't catch, on arrival you are buzzed in with the lift to your left, just four floors up you come to a door and behind that door is a corridor with the 10 rooms. There is one shower and toilet to share between the rooms so it is more like a hostel which I didn't mind. In the bathroom there was a few toiletries and a washing machine, the toilet and bathroom are cleaned daily and are kept in nice condition. There is also a kitchen which has everything you need and more, they have a great range of cereals and teas, as well as a fridge/freezer, toaster, microwave and cooker, I was highly impressed.

My room was small and basic it had a chest of drawers, a table and chair, a mini fridge, a bed and linen provided there was also a sink and a mirror. The window opened out to a view of rooftops and an impressive view of the city you could open the window fully which I liked as most places have child locks on. It was cleaned daily and I had a fresh towel daily as well, I was impressed as it was a single women working and she was able to cleaned and maintain a hotel all by herself I also asked a for a hairdryer which she provided.

To stay at the Kongressikoti it will be around 40-50 euros a night, for Europe that's a good price.
