I stayed here for 2 nights on business trip. It is a reasonable hotel, rooms are OK but lack some atmosphere. On Sunday arrival nobody at reception, had to wait for 5 minutes. After telling the receptionist I was there already for 5 minutes, no apologies... Breakfast was good but you have to pay for "specialties" like cappuccino or a... More

We spent two nights here whilst on a mini-vacation to Helsinki, and were quite happy with our decision. The hotel is situated not far from the ferry terminal, where we came in through, and is relatively well situated in the city for some exploration on foot (although it seems intuitively out of the way at first feel). The room itself... More

I stay here with work on a regular basis... its clean cosy and just what you need in a hotel without all the fancy stuff! Staff are friendly, rooms are small but clean. corridors are a little noisy as when people go in and out of rooms and doors tend to slam. I have never used the catering facilities in... More

Hotel is in the city Center, there is Aleppa market opposite hotel. Room is cozy, clean and beds are very comfortable. There is small gymroom, where you can find couple of some basic gym equipments and sauna area, which is good place to relax.

This hotel is very nice in different ways. Its location can't be better, at the design neighborhood in Helsinki and not far from several other nice places to visit and to dine. There are several room types for you to choose from. Breakfast is very good. But, what really called my attention was the service. From the very beginning, people... More

I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. Service was really good and breakfast is very nice. They even prepared an early breakfast in the second day since I had to leave early in the morning. I had a room overlooking the street, I preferred to have less see through curtains for privacy.

I stayed for one night at this hotel and I was very satisfied with my stay. The room was clean and since it was facing the back yard, also very quiet. The staff at the reception desk was very friendly and the breakfast was good. The location of the hotel is excellent, just a 10 minute walk to the main... More

This hotel is about 15 minutes away from the central railway station. The location is in the Helsinki Design District so there's lots of small and interesting boutiques and galleries. Shopping malls and department stores are 10-15 mins away. The service was warm and precise. Room was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was good with many cold and warm choices.... More

It's very polit buru Stalinist era and I do like the fact that it's retained the interiors. Rooms are quirky and comfortable and importantly warm. No road noise so you'll get a good nights sleep. The food is good and the meeting room facilities and wifi fine. I would go back.
