We have stayed here 3 times and every time is excellent. The place is in the best location in the centre and the staff are so helpful. It should be rated much higher than it is. 5 minutes from everything! The patisserie 4 doors up has the best pastries and cakes as well.

Have stayed here several times. Best location, clean rooms, friendly reception. Good value for money! Sain myös suomenkielistä palvelua. If you can climb the stairs, choose a room on upper floor, maybe you get a view over the roofs.

The room was the smallest I have ever seen, stairs are also the worst. Booked a room for 3 days, checked out the second day went to the DoulbeTree for the same price. Worst Hotel I have ever seen. If you want a small cramped room and some exercise getting to it this is the place for you.
