Big hotel with very drab decor - what were they thinking? This hotel is the definition of beige! The hallways are unbelievably and unrelieveadly drab beige. Lifts were dirty. Restaurant and rooms were clean. Food fair to good. A major plus for long haul travelers is that unusually for Europe this hotel has a guest laundry. The downside is that... More

Hotel is located in the old warehouse and it very big. Room I had was quite small and because it was located int top floor it had only very small window in it. Minibar in the room was locked and in the reception was not given key to it when I arrived. Ws too lazy to go ask it, because... More

Initially I wasn't sure, the room we had seemed small, there were no tea and coffee facilities in the room that we booked but some rooms do have that option. The fridge was locked (which was probably just as well) we asked for a key but there were no spares! However, the bed was comfortable and we were out most... More

Quiet hotel, even with several boys' hockey teams at hotel. The bed was comfortable (two twin beds pushed together with two separate duvets). Desk staff friendly and helpful, rented a car through the staff at the front desk - car was delivered to and picked up from hotel. The conference centre is across the street from the hotel and the...

Just off the market center near to the Viking line ferry terminal, this hotel is well worth a stay. Converted from a port side warehouse, it is an interesting building and a very nicely styled hotel. The rooms are very high standard, clean and the beds are some of the best I have slept in. The restaurant and bar are... More

The hotel is well located if you are taking a Viking line ferry. The hotel itself is big - a converted warehouse - and can be very busy. Staff are helpful, breakfast is nice - all in all a good hotel.

Plusses: I loved the e-checkout where you were able to checkout over mobile device and just drop the key at the reception. Breakfast was good. Location is great near the Esplanaadi. Minuses: First time I have seen a room minibar that was locked, so to have a drink you had to go to the reception to pick up a key.

The hotel is very close to the Viking Line terminal, so it's convenient for cruise and ferry passengers. You can store your luggage in the luggage room before check-in and after check-out. Good breakfast buffet (very crowded at peak times). On the harbor, close to the tourist market, Uspensky cathedral and other landmarks.

We were on a tour, and unfortunately, only stayed here one night. Very good location - we were less than 10 minutes to Kauppatori Market Square, which was one block away from Senate Square. Uspensky Church was on the way to Market. Showers were easy to step into, with complete glass doors (so you don't drip water all over the... More
