    This is the best airport hotel in Helsinki and accessible from the terminals via a covered walkway. There are five floors of which the top one is an executive floor with an (often unmanned) lounge open from 7 to 11. The sauna and nice gym in the basement floor are open and free for all hotel guests. Rooms are not huge but have a bathroom with both bath and walk-in shower. Executive rooms are not bigger than normal rooms, but there are a few bigger executive rooms with their own private sauna.

    Breakfast is served in the main restaurant from 6 and in the lounge starting at 7. Should you have to leave earlier you can ask at the reception if they can arrange something for you. The lounge has some snacks in the evening + a seletion of some basic liquors (at least vodka, gin, congac VS and campari). One of the snack options should be a hot one.

    Nothing to complain about, modern and stylish, but it is still a slightly impersonal airport hotel.

    If you mean the Aalto chairs, they are from the 1930's (!)

    There is a hotel inside the terminal (Scandic?) where the rooms have no windows- this Hilton is a great improvement and the best option at the airport. But my days of compulsory travel to HEL are over so I may not see this one again until the 2030s (retirement.)
