My husband and I will be in Helsinki in July, arriving at the airport around noon on a Sunday. On Monday, we are taking a day cruise to Tallinn, and we are departing from the Helsinki airport at 7:30 am on Tuesday.
We would like to stay in a hotel in the Kluuvi/Senate Square area for exploring on Sunday, but we need easy access to the port on Monday as well as to the airport early on Tuesday morning.
In looking at the regional transport web site, it appears that the trip via bus from the airport to Kluuvi takes 45 minutes, and that seems too far to make it practical on Tuesday.
Can you suggest a hotel (or area) that would be most efficient for using public transportation allowing us to get to the cruise port and airport? Or, if we took a taxi to and from the airport, would it be easy to get to the cruise port from the Kluuvi area?
