For your convenience, we’ve picked some of our favorite places to stay in the center of Helsinki. There are plenty of places to choose from, but by picking something in the center you’ll have the best connections to the EARS venues, city attractions, brunches, lunches and late nite action!


For location: Cumulus Hakaniemi

The convenient Cumulus Hakaniemi is located just 1 km from the city center and next to the trendy Kallio neighbourhood. For an easy walk to town, excellent public transport to the airport and the city, and easy access to Modern Sky Festival Helsinki venue Ääniwalli, this is definitely a good pick!

Siltasaarenkatu 14, Helsinki


For class: Hotel Helka

Packed with Alvar Aalto and Artek design classics, the Helka Hotel housed in a 1920s building is an easy going classic at its best. Located right in the center of Helsinki, Helka is close to everything: main attractions, city buzz, culture, parks and museums.

 For a little extra: Klaus K

For an uniquely Finnish experience, have a go with Klaus K. A member of Design Hotels, Klaus K is inspired by Finland’s national epic Kalevala and its nature but definitely not in the most traditional way. Next to it’s modern feel and excellent kitchen, Klaus K also serves great scenery over the city rooftops.

For tradition: Seurahuone 

Hotel Seurahuone Helsinki is a high class, tasteful hotel in the heart of Helsinki. Historically over 180 years old Seurahuone is one of the most traditional hotels in Finland.

For trendy vibes: Lilla Roberts

The trendy, boutique-style hotel Lilla Roberts is located in the heart of Helsinki’s design district and is only a few minutes-walk away from the city center. And your best pick, if it’s the old Jugend-style surroundings, good access to public parks and some marine vibes you’re after in your free time!
