A new hotel opened last week at the Helsinki-Vantaa Airport. The Hilton Helsinki-Vantaa Airport Hotel is the first upscale establishment at the airport, offering travelers luxury, state-of-the-art facilities, Hilton style and a Finnish flavor.

The airport hotel is the city's third Hilton hotel. President of Hilton Hotels for Europe, Wolfgang Neumann said: : "As the only upscale hotel situated directly at the airport terminal, Hilton Helsinki-Vantaa Airport is a truly exciting and strategically important addition to our European portfolio. With almost 150 international flights departing from Helsinki airport each day - some 12 million passengers a year - our newest Hilton property is ideally located to cater to the growing number of business and leisure travelers who fly through, to and from Helsinki."

The lobby of the Hilton Helsinki-Vantaa Airport Hotel is equipped with screens showing arrival and departure information as well as self check-in kiosks for several airlines including Finnair, Finncom Airlines and KLM. The hotel hopes to add other airlines to the list in the near future.

The hotel is only a 20 minute drive from Helsinki's downtown area and is just on the outskirts of Vantaa city. The hotel was designed by Finnish and Scandinavian architects and is the result of a 40 million euro investment.

The hotel has 246 rooms and suits, with private saunas available in 24 of those rooms. High speed wireless internet access is available throughout the hotel. All guests have access to a Precor gym and Finnish-style sauna 24-hours a day. The hotel also has a 250-seat restaurant attached as well as a lounge bar.

Rooms in the new hotel start at £117 for weekend stays and £159 for weekday stays and include a buffet breakfast in the morning as well as all taxes and charges.

From London Heathrow, British Airways and Finnair both offer direct flights. Blue 1 offers service between Helsinki and London Stansted. Flights are also available from Dublin, Edinburgh and Manchester.
