There is a good railway connection between Helsinki and Tampere. The closest railway station from Helsinki Airport is Tikkurila (Tickursby på svenska) which can be reached from the airport by bus or taxi. It takes about 20 minutes by taxi to get there
There is a direct bus line from Helsinki Airport to Tampere bus station. The buses leave every 2 hours or so. It takes somewhat longer to travel by bus than by train or 2 hr 15-30 min, but on the pro side is that one can sit in the bus at the Airport and get out at Tampere bus station, which is located only 200 metres from SokosHotel Ilves.
