    Default Finland during Transit.

    Hi all,

    I'd be travelling with my 4 year old son to India coming saturday and am flying Finair. Would reach Helsinki at 11 in the night and my connecting flight is at 2:15 next day afternoon. Am currently residing in Switzerland but holder of a Indian passport. On inquiry, finair officials denied issuing transit visa to person holding passport of Indian origin even if the transit time is longer than 7 hours.

    Am in a fix as to what i'd do in the middle of the night with a kid at the airport. If at all I get a transit visa, could someone suggest a budget hotel to spend the night near the airport and also some sight seeing tips i could use to kill time in Helsinki and how to go about it.

    An anxious traveller..

    cheap but good Hotels (but within Helsinki..about 40 min by bus):

    Hotel Helsinki | Hotels | Eerikinkatu (requires prebooking on the internet)

    VODA-CARLTON Helsinki (200 m from the central station...very good if you need to go back to the airport as the bus station is at the central station)
