Restaurant Arthur Helsinki is a popular place for guests and non-guests, locals and visitors. Usually open just for lunch, it is known for its extensive lunch buffet, salad bar, and delicious Finnish favourites. You can also order from the menu too if you don’t fancy filling up on the buffet. The buffet always features at least one type of soup and three warm dishes, although the exact selection varies from day to day. Examples of a la carte dishes include burgers, borscht (a type of soup), hot pot (similar to stew), pasta, steak, and salmon.

There is a small shop in the reception area where you can buy a selection of drinks, snacks, and toiletries. The reception is staffed around the clock, and the friendly members of staff can assist with booking taxis and offer great travel tips to help you make the most of your stay in Helsinki.

Free Wi-Fi internet access is available throughout the hotel, and you can pay to use the computer in the reception if you do not have your own devices with you.

One of the hotel’s most recommended facilities is the excellent private sauna. For just 6 EUR (approximately 6.5 USD) per person you can reserve a session in the sauna for just you and your family or friends. Bookings can be made at reception. Sit in the hot wooden cabin and inhale the slightly-sweet aroma of the steam before bracing yourself to stand under the cold shower – it’s icy! After cooling off, head back into the heat to sweat some more! Relaxing and beneficial for your health, try to book the sauna at least once during your stay.
