What's your budget? Finland is not a cheap country but there's plenty of cheapish hostels and some reasonable prized hotels in Helsinki.

But there's propably lots of Finnish people from outside of Helsinki in the capital and also a LOT of fans from Russia since St.Petersburg is just around the corner. So you should make sure to reserve your accomodiation in advance.

I live just 70km north of Stockholm so I'll probably head down for a game or two if I got the money.

I would recommend you stay somewhere near the main railway station, that's where most of the bars and restaurants are located, and the arena is a short train ride away. Be ready to spend 70€ a night for accommodation, though.

The Scandic Simonkenttä is good located and nice hotel. But like he said, its not that cheap. Other notables ar Scandic Marski (Same hotelchain), or sokos torni.

Then there are hotels like "omena hotelli" which is quit cheap and without reception etc. you get a text message with a door code. So there are lots of possible places to stay it all depends on your budget.

Airfare alone is going to be expensive, I'd be willing to spend $140 a night on a hotel (which would be split).

I'm thinking about going to a travel agency for everything lol
