"The Finnish capital is one of the most romantic cities in Europe", says the London Evening Standard, and it doesn't get much more romantic than the 5-star Hotel Haven. The décor oozes elegance, with an abundance of white and cream tones, and there's an open fireplace in the lobby and bar, and harbour views from many windows. Little wonder that Travel + Leisure calls it "a gem".

It's the closest hotel to Market Square and only a 5-minute walk from the harbour, where the boat leaves for Suomenlinna (a historic fortress and a UNESCO World Heritage Site). It's also a short stroll to Esplanadi Park, where there are open-air concerts in the summer, the hop-on, hop-off bus stop and Helsinki City Museum. Market Square itself has a vibrant food market (closed in the winter) and there are a number of restaurants in the area. The impressive Uspenski Cathedral is a 12-minute walk away.

The boutique hotel has 77 rooms and an intimate air. Buffet breakfast is included in the nightly price and is served overlooking the water, in an elegant dining room.

There are two restaurants opening in early 2016: Bystro, serving Russian cuisine and a wide selection of vodka, and a new Finnish restaurant, plus 24-hour room service is available. Bar Haven is popular with locals and guests alike, but closes early at 11:30pm. There is an impressive range of whisky and rum on offer.

The elegant bedrooms feature Scandinavian furniture and swathes of fabric framing the windows. Some overlook the harbour, others have views of the cathedral or city. An upgrade to the Lux Sea View room is recommended. All rooms have king-size or twin beds, dressing gowns and slippers, free Wi-Fi and bottled water at turndown. Upgraded rooms also have a Nespresso coffee machine. There is a gym for all guests to use.
