Take this hotel if you want to be in town centre. It is not to expensive. (no elevator) You can meet interesting people in a hotel bar with good food. The bar is to be converted to a breakfast place in the morning. Walking distance to esplanade, catedral and market place. Next to the hotel is entrance to big underground... More

Reasonably priced hotel in a great location for exploring the city, and also close to the railway station. The breakfast was excellent and there was plenty of choice. My room was at the back of the hotel which could be a little noisy due to a large extractor fan outside, but I guess that the main road side would have... More

It's hard to comment whether this was value for money as we happened to be here during the World Gymnastics Championship and accommodation in Helsinki was even more expensive than usual. The bathroom was a wet room but the shower good. Hairdryer provided. No safe and no aircon when room was a bit stuffy. A kettle, tea and coffee provided... More

Excellent price, nice room, maybe a little small. There are two flights of stairs to get to the second floor where the rooms are, but the staff will carry up your suit case. Good restaurant/bar downstairs but no waistress service. Rooms are a little small, bed is single bed. only basic stuff but for the price its a good value,... More

The location of the hotel is incredibly convenient. The fact that on the ground floor, at the hotel´s entrance there is a cafe and a Mexican restaurant, is not necessarily negative for those who may need a quick dinner. Somewhat pricey though. The port, the cathedral an the central square are within walking distance. For utility reasons I would return... More

This hotel has a great situation and has next to it a fantastic Irish themed bar "Molly Malone's". Unfortunately this is where it ended - my hotel room shook when ever a tram or bus went past, the floor was dusty and probably hadn't been cleaned the whole week I was there - not even a wipe over towels were...

Good breakfast. With bar and restaurant with intense movement. Great location, very close to the Central Station and the bus stop leading to the airport, and easy access to most tourist attractions. Cleaning and tidying the correct rooms. Unfortunately room 211 is just opposite the place where the deposit Hotel trash cans, and very bad soundproofing in the ceiling as... More

This small and simple hotel is very centrally located in Helsinki, only 50 metres from the railway station. I only had a couple of hours to explore the city, but the very helpful receptionist gave me a map and indicated some points of interest which just about filled my two hour slot perfectly. The rooms are quite small but well... More

The hotel was rated 4,5 stars, but I would say it is barely a 3 star. The lobby of the hotel is shared by a coffee shop and a Mexican restaurant. Breakfast is served in the Mexican restaurant. Room amenities are really at the very basic level, the free wifi is slow and unreliable. Since there is not a proper... More
