Haven - still a piece of heaven in Helsinki

A lovely one night stop with a good view to the city harbour. Lovely and cozy lobby as a living room with a gasfire. Absolutely superb selection of malts with reasonably pricing. Also a good wine cabinet with some specials. Just before Christmas also live music. Excellent breakfast in former top restaurant Read more[SPLIT]Read lesswith a view to Old Market Hall.

Gorgeous hotel in the perfect location!

Unexpected upgrade to a harbor view room. The view was stunning! Loved walking to the harbor and eating at the Market Building across the street.

The Haven is a haven

The staff at the Haven are extremely professional, attentive and kind. I arrived late and they welcomed me as though I had been staying with them frequently (even though this was my first time).

Hotel Haven - still a small piece of heaven in Helsinki

I have visited in Hotel Haven since it was opened in 2009. After ten years it has kept its unique and cozy atmosphere with lovely bar and lounge which feels like a home. It's still one of the best locations when you are staying in Helsinki but without crowds. Hotel has extended with new part on it and Read more[SPLIT]Read lessI stayed a night in 6th floor. All new rooms feels like they've been a part of hotel since opening. Lovely breakfast is served in former gourmet restaurant G.W.Sundström's facilities and you have a great view over the harbor from it's windows. Only thing to remember is that you have to walk 20 m outside for your breakfast - otherwise it's worth of it!

Perfect Location

We spent 3 nights at Hotel Haven in a Grand Deluxe Harbour View room which meant that we had a view across the water which was nice. The room was on the 8th floor and there was absolutely no noise at all during our stay either from outside or from other guests - very quiet and that is important to Read more[SPLIT]Read lessus. We weren't even really aware of other guests until we arrived for breakfast which was always busy. Lovely staff on reception and so helpful. The bed was huge and so comfortable and we had a sofa in the room for relaxing after spending our days walking around Helsinki. One thing to point out though is that there was nowhere to unpack your clothes to - no drawers although there was hanging in the wardrobe. Therefore we had to live out of our suitcases for 4 days. I would personally prefer to be able to unpack my clothes especially for a 3 night stay. The bathroom was well fitted but the hand held shower over the bath was rather difficult to access because of the design and that meant having to get into the bath to reduce the risk of turning the tap the wrong way and getting soaked! A Nespresso coffee machine was provided and a kettle although only espresso cups which are far from ideal if you want a cup of tea. I arranged for a mug to be sent to the room. The hotel is in the most perfect location being very close to the Esplanadii which was beautifully decorated for Christmas and within 10 minutes' walk of Senate Square where the main Christmas market is located. Breakfast is taken in another building which is the 2nd oldest stone building in Helsinki. If you are lucky enough you can get a table with a view of the harbour - it did seem that you could reserve tables although I am not sure how that worked. We booked a private transfer from the airport to the hotel through the hotel and that was expensive at Euros 100 - the driver was very scruffy indeed which was a shame. We then arranged a taxi through the hotel for the return trip to the airport - very smart car and driver and Euros 45. All in all though it was a lovely hotel in the best location for exploring Helsinki which we really enjoyed.

Very pleasant place with friendly staff and high quality experience

Wonderful place with the class that a 5 star hotel should have. At arrival an issue regarding a double booking on our end was sorted without dispute. In addition we were upgraded. The breakfast is very well organized in a building that reminds you of a small castle overlooking the harbor.
