Better than a hotel

by lloyd_wallace (January, 2015)


Reason for Stay: Too cheap for a hotel room
Where: Airside
Pros: Free (overnight only) sleeping pods. Toilets right next to them. Free wifi.
Cons: Expensive food only


There is no need whatsoever to get a hotel if you are staying overnight in helsinki, 2015 was my third year running staying overnight here. The sleeping pods are great, with charging sockets in them and storage under the bed for you hand luggage. The pods are free overnight, and it means that you can stay right by the gate and get a proper nights sleep without the fuss of getting a bus back and forth to a hotel. I LOVE IT

good place to crash

(Guest Review) I came with a flight that landed 1am, and my train didn't leave before 6am. I was only carrying hand luggage. So I never went out through the exit, but stayed airside where I slept on a bench, close to a few other fellow airport sleepers. It was rather quiet and comfortable.

Sleeping pods are not free

Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review by Casey Ryback) For those who said the three sleeping pods at gate 31 are free, thats not so! You just had luck of not bumping into the employee whos chargin money i suppose :) i was woken up by a lady who said all of these sleeping pods are not free. And 5 euros per hour cost a hotel stay if your transfer is really long. Nevertheless , i had a good nap at gate 31 abcde, downstairs, on a bench. The airport is quite and clean. Have a good trip!

Video report of sleeping in Helsinki terminal

by web-administrator (August, 2015)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review by John) HEL was my first terminal that I decided to sleep in. I slept there 2 nights in total, during the longest stay I arrived at 5pm for a flight at 8am the following morning. I was pleasantly surprised at how quiet the terminal was and the availability of decent (nearly) flat benched. I filmed my experience and you can find the trip report here: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7HbI9O-elrM

Helsinki Airport Review

by web-administrator (May, 2015)


Pros: -
Cons: -


(Guest Review) At the moment, Helsinki airport is going through major work (May 2015). It was impossible to find seats at my designated departure gate. Also, it was not very clean, and toilets were not satisfactory. Seating anywhere was hard to find except far away from my assigned gate. Perhaps, once they get the work done, this hopefully will improve. But, as it is now, it is quite poor. On a positive note, they had something I have not seen other places, USB outlets for charging tablets, etc. Still, next time I travel, I am going to try for some other connection.
