A modest and functional business hotel Jan 21, 2013
Cumulus Hakaniemi is a modern, business orientated, first class hotel in the quarter of Hakaniemi, only a five minute metro ride out of the very center of Helsinki.

It is most conveniently located next to the public transit hub, at Hakaniemi Tori, with direct access to the airport (the airport bus stops right in front of the door), the metro (station Hakaniemi Tori) and all thee major tram lines (stop also right across the road)

I stayed at this hotel on two occasions over the past three months. On my most recent visit I stayed in room 714, on the 7the floor. It was orientated towards tee courtyard and much quieter than the street facing room I stayed at, during my previous visit.

Room 714 is a very small twin room with two single beds, a working desk with a cable for free wired Internet , a flat-screen TV and a chair.

On my previous visit I stayed at room 511, which was equal in size but seemed larger since it only had a double bed. This room was facing thee street side and despite being on the 5th floor, I could hear the sound of the passing trams from early morning till late at night. This room also had a working desk with Internet cable, a flat-screen TV and a comfortable reading chair.

Both rooms were decorated in thee same bright colors and both had wooden floors. All rooms feature a pillow menu. The medium pillow is on the bed, while the soft one can be found in the wardrobe. A hard pillow can be obtained from reception. Neither room features a minibar, but drinks, coffee and tea as well as small snack can be obtained from the self- service bar at reception.

Both rooms had a small but pristine clean bathroom with a toilet, sink and shower. My only remark is that there’s not much pressure in the showerhead. This is not a room related problem, because I experienced an equally meek streak of water in both rooms’ showers and at the sauna!

The hotel tries to be very environmentally friendly. Waste is already separated in the rubbish bins in the rooms to be recycled. Spare towels are in the cupboard rather than ready in the bathroom. But the hotel’s ecofriendly nature shows mostly in the bathroom and shower room at thee sauna, where soap, shampoo and shower gel is stored in large containers, fixed to the wall.

Included in thee stay is free wifi for 24 hours. All additional wifi access needs to be bought at EUR 2,5 per 24/hours.

At the lobby there’s a pc with complimentary Internet access as well as a printer. Handy for getting your boarding pass.

Other facilities include a gym at basement level, a men's and a women sauna. The sauna is heated daily from 7AM till 1PM and offers room to 5 or 6 people. There’s no pool however to jump in afterwards, only showers are available.

Breakfast is served on the 2nd floor. It’s a nice and modern breakfast room with view over Hakaniemi Tori. The hotel serves, apart from the regular items like eggs, yoghurt, cereal, cheeses, salad and bread, a hot Finnish breakfast including eggs, Karelian pastries, porridge and berry soup.

The Cumulus in Hakaniemi is a good base for business people who have appointments all over thee city. Its location makes it an excellent hub to get just about everywhere in a short time span, even on public transport. For leisure travelers on a city break, there are plenty more alternatives in the very center.
