4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

Nice and clean room (Solo Twin) at the corner. Extraplus for ironing board and iron at the room and good variety at the minibar (even salmiakki!). Spacious bathroom, but after the shower the whole floor was wet. Breakfast was delicious, but really growded (I think there were some meeting customers as well) so all the time there were empty bowls... More

Location is good, it's near city center just walk away from railwaystation/busterminal, but still quiet place. I think I waited something little bit more 'cause it's Solo-hotel, but it's not there. No glamour, not so unique. Solo twin -room is nice, bed is good and 3 different pillows to choose of, nice :) But when it's two accommodation, you might... More

I just spent one night in a one person room, so I dont have massive insight to how other rooms etc are. But, the room was very nice, stylish and hotel overall good. I guess I will need to try it out once more. But, the name is rather confusing. Its called Aleksanteri, located at Albertinkatu 34. 200 m from... More

My first impression on the hotel was that the hotel was a bit kwirky, which I did like. Only spent one night in the hotel, but the staff were friendly and the beds amazingly comfortable. Although. I have been charged for the minibar €7, which I did not touch, keep an eye on your bill! As I think this is... More

Hotel Aleksanteri is not an old hotel despite the looks. It used to be a headquarter of Insurance Company and 10 years ago it renovated for the hotel purpose. The old part of the building is from 1920's and although the total renovation, there's disadvantages because of the age of the building. Corridors are labyrinthine and the sound proof isn't... More

Stayed Friday to Sunday as we were attending a wedding in Helsinki. Room was rather small, but had all the amenities and comfort expected. Breakfast was interesting, but very busy and had to wait for tables both days. Unfortunately the weather was poor so could not use their summer terrace. For a short stay it was fine, for a longer...

This hotel was a stopover on our way from St.Petersburg onwards to Barcelona. The rooms are standard, comfortable, clean, perhaps a little clinical. Breakfast was nice with a good selection of foods. Service was efficient and the hotel is located a little way from the main train station, but not 'out of way'. Overall, for a stopover it was fine... More

I spent one night at this lovely hotel and I did enjoy it very much. I must say I travel a lot and I spend around 15 nights per month in hotels, so I can recognize a good hotel and a good service. Outside looks like a normal building but as soon as you open the door you will see... More

Staying in the hotel due to working purposes, and having to wake up really early in th morning, I had to undress my pj's and leave the hotel at 22:30 looking for food, as the room service is closed on sundays and mondays?!?!? I find it unacceptable.
