As you know, I love design hotels, which is why I had to stay at the Hotel Indigo Helsinki. From the stunning interior design to the locally curated breakfast, this is a hip and comfortable place I’d recommend any of my friends and family to stay at.
Furthermore, it’s a great place to stay at as a base if you’re taking day trips from Helsinki. Read on for all the reasons why I enjoyed my night at Hotel Indigo Helsinki.

Everything in my room at Hotel Indigo Helsinki made my stay quite comfortable! The beds were firm but soft and had plush blankets and pillows. There’s enough space in the closet for an extended stay. The tea, toiletries, and towels were high-quality, and even the hair dryer rocked. It dried my hair in 5 minutes!
Getting from the Helsinki Airport to Hotel Indigo is quite easy. All you have to do is take the train to Helsinki Central Station (Helsingin päärautatieasema) and take the #1 or #6 tram to Fredrikinkat. Then it’s only a one minute walk to the hotel.
Also, it’s about a 20 minute walk to get to the Helsinki Cathedral and Allas Sea Pool, and there are a lot of good restaurants and cocktail bars around like Grön, WILD, and Runar.
Pro Tip: To get public transportation tickets, I suggest downloading the Helsinki Mobile Ticket App. You can easily buy tickets for your train and tram ride on there and not have to go out of your way to get a ticket booth to get tickets.
If you don’t have data, then you can use the free wifi at the airport before heading off to the train. Also, in general, if you don’t have data, then I suggest using Google Maps offline so you have directions on hand regardless of having data or wifi.
After reading the menu, I couldn’t wait to wake up and have a hearty breakfast at the hotel. I’m a sucker for local food so I salivated over the thought of eating the local breads and cheeses.
As a foodie, I was very happy to experience breakfast meeting my expectations! The eggs, bacon, and pretty much everything were cooked to my liking, and I had more food to choose from than I needed. I especially enjoy the American style bacon, which I haven’t had often since moving to Europe.
Of course, the design at Hotel Indigo is stunning. Whether you’re in the lobby or in your room, you’ll enjoy every corner of the hotel. It’s full of carefully curated furniture and art pieces.
Although Hotel Indigo’s amenities aren’t abundant in number, they sure take precedence in quality. There’s a gym with enough equipment to stay in shape while you travel, but even better, there’s a high-temperature and quality sauna and steam room.
I had the joy of using the sauna by myself, which made it feel like a private experience. Relaxing in the sauna melted away the physical tensions of traveling all day, and something I highly recommend you doing if you stay at this hotel!
