Helsinki - Hotel Helka
In two years Helsinki is going to be the World Design Capital 2012. So if you are a design lover you just have to go there. But who wants to bump into hords of tourists when on holiday. So better go this summer, when Helsinki is still a bit undiscovered.
A great starting point is Hotel Helka, an affordable boutique hotel in the city center. Designed by architect Wivi Lönn and furnished by Alvar Aalto, with elements of Finnish nature and a traditional Finnish sauna in every suite.
Price: from 48 euro p.p.p.n double room. Check their offers for an even better price.
