A lot seems to depend on the flight schedules and times of year. Some commentators cite busy overcrowded gates, others empty spaces. The price of things at the airport, and it should be understood in Finland generally (should you be stopping-over and not in transit) are high in comparison to other places, including those elsewhere (outside Scandinavia) in the Eurozone.
There are new terminal gates and associated shopping areas being finalised at this time (late 2016), but there are also plans for another phase of expansion as Finnair purchases a fleet of new A350s for the far eastern routes Helsinki is well placed to feeder to other European cities.
The airport is impeccably clean and staff proudly courteous; there are good connections to the city and elsewhere in Finland. There is a new train to the city centre.
Airport hotels are plentiful; the free shuttle buses run from outside the terminal building at approx 30min intervals.
You can check availability via dedicated terminals just inside from the bus stops, and there is a manned helpdesk for city information; although you will have to do the booking/reservation yourself.
If you want to sleep at the airport, there are a fair few couches around - particularly in the new long distance part of the terminal; however these are not suitable for all - some commentators have complained about the shape of them.
Taxis are expensive in Finland (the driver does not expect a tip - 'they are expensive enough already'), but you can save some money and still retain convenience by using the "Airport taxi" minibus service. Find the yellow counter downstairs near the exit to the bus stops and the information desk. You can tell them at the desk where you want to go and they will combine you with others and drop you off in order. You can haggle the price.
There is a baggage storage area. It is a little hard to find, you have to take a lift down from the main floor level near the Information Desk. You can leave your bag in the locker, or talk to the attendant and they will transport your bag to another location for the duration (for longer trips)
