Small luxuries are the name of the game at the 77-room Hotel Haven, from the cozy fireplace in the lobby to the king beds, Egyptian cotton sheets, bathroom TVs and Elemis amenities. But don’t expect high style – the prevailing theme is plush comfort, especially in the lobby, with its chintzy chairs, paneled walls and herringbone parquetry. The adjoining Siluetti Spa offers anti-aging treatments such as body scrubs and Botox. And for foodies, there are three Scandinavian restaurants to choose from: the seafood-driven Havis, and Finnish dining temples Sundmans Krog and G.W. Sundmans.
In the Area
Always wanted to watch an Elvis impersonator swivel his hips in a Finnish casino? Well, you’re in luck, thanks to the popular dinner show in the Fennia Salon at Casino Helsinki, located near the hotel. If more highbrow entertainment is on your agenda, head to the impressive Uspenski Cathedral, whose 13 golden onion-shaped domes are hard to miss from the waterfront, then check out the Alvar Aalto-designed Finlandia Hall, completed in 1975. Cap the day off at the hotel with cocktails and a backgammon challenge in the Haven Bar.
How to Get There
I have enjoyed my stay here. The room was great. Breakfast was very rich and kept me through the day. Location is fantastic. The rates I believe are high but this is Finland. Walked to the train atation in 10 minutes. Recommend.
This was the best hotel I stayed at throughout my fortnight in Scandinavia. The room was luxurious and spacious and spotlessly clean. The staff at reception, the bar and the porter couldn't do enough for me. Breakfast was amazing. You will be made to feel most welcome in this beautiful hotel. Haven Hotel made my holiday in Helsinki just perfect.
The Hotel is located in a great central location with great views. It was a well planned room. Thought the elevators were bit tiny but it’s an old building. But if you are claustrophobic you been warned. The breakfast is served in a very old building which is pretty too. The service was good and prompt. Bar Haven has a great collection of whiskey!
Very efficient staff, great breakfast and really comfortable beds. May not look that amazing from the outside but it has everything you need including good gym and bar. Did not eat in restaurant. Good size rooms too
Of 6 hotels in 4 weeks travelling in Scandinavia this is by far the best and at reasonable price. Rooms are very spacious and quiet. Excellent service by very friendly and attentive staff. Great breakfast included.
