The Aalto Otaniemi campus is in the city of ESPOO, which is part of the metropolitan area of HELSINKI. ESPOO is not a typical city area, it is more residential. Therefore there are only a few hotels near our campus:

Some hotels in Helsinki
There are many hotels all across Helsinki, but it is best to be close to Kamppi, which is the central bus station and metro station or the Central railway station.
There are busses to Otaniemi which take some 15 minutes and we hope that our new metro will be running by then (it has a stop at Aalto University and it connects Otaniemi and the Aalto campus to Ruoholahti (Holiday Inn is at Ruoholahti, Kamppi and the Central Railway station, and cutting through Helsinki city towards the east ).
If you get a hotel in Helsinki, look for a central location. Some suggestions
