We were travelling to Helsinki for a weekend with two children. We had booked a family room and we got accomodated in a room that looked like it was from a retirement home. It was roomy but the bathroom looked like the floor or the walls next to the shower had never been scrubbed. The shower curtain was dirty and... More

We were disappointed by the size of the room which is the smallest 4 * I have every stayed in. The pictures are somewhat misleading as they mostly show some non "standard" rooms so give a misleading impression. Also the bed was held up by a piece of wood in the middle of the frame and was uncomfortable. For the... More

The hotel has friendly service, rooms are clean and comfortable. The breakfast is really good. There is plenty to choose from and the breakfast area is large so you can eat in peace. Coffee is served to table and you can choose what kind you want. Hotel is a bit off from the centre, about 15 minute walk, but the... More

Stayed here recently 3 nights and it was better what i excepted. This hotel is a Solo concept hotel of Sokos hotel chain. What makes it more special is probably the service which was really warm and welcoming on every level of employees. On arriving I was offered a room from the "basement" floor :) which doesn't sound really tempting... More

Reception staff were very helpful and spoke excellent English (like most people in Finland) although there were frequently long queues at reception with only one staff member on duty (we waited 15 minutes to check in!). Our room (016) was spacious, tastefully decorated and with an excellent bathroom (although the shower cubicle leaked all over the floor). Comfortable bed and... More

The hotel is just 10 min. walking distance away from the market square. The place is very quite, a lot of nice restaurants nearby. The hotel is absolutely wheelchair friendly, the room is fully equipped with all necessary for a guest in a wheelchair. The room is very cosy and spacious and can easily accommodate three people.

We were lucky enough to book the Rock and Rose -room designed by a Finnish rocker Remu Aaltonen. The room was to our liking with its dark tones, slightly tacky rock 'n roll theme and.... PINBALL! Got to admit, the pinball takes an hour or two as it is so cool but then again, that is why the room was... More
