My company changed our normal hotel to this one and I looked at the pictures in the Internet. It looked nice, so I had hopes it wouldn't be a big change from our old hotel. First I took the normal elevator upto the 4th floor and then relised I would have to walk some steps with my heavy suitcase. My... More

I’ve been in this hotel earlier a few times. Ones got a room from the middle floor and it had a view which was acceptable and I knew what to wait for. Ones in the bottom floor under the street level and that was also okay. Now I was somewhat disappointed. The room was ordered with a window view. Well... More

I've met there my girlfriend for a weekend together. Due to my job I arrived very late at Vantaa airport getting to check in after midnight. As it usually happens with late check in no receptionist is at the reception so you need ring in order to attract attention. I checked in and got a room , being disappointed by... More

I've stayed here now couple times and Aleksanteri has some extra character in their interior style and the staff is super friendly. It's in convenient walking distance from city center and the location is overall quiet so you get good night sleep. Rooms are nice and beds good quality. Breakfast is above average in Finnish standards and gives you good... More

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

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.

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
