I was curious about this famous hotel. It is really close to railway station, i would save time, just cross the street and you are on the train. The house itself is impressive, the stairs are beautiful, and the room hight is gorgeous. But the room I got, on the 4th floor, is not nice. The table looked like a... More

We appreciated the spacious room with wooden floor even if the interior is all in all somewhat worn out. A big plus is also the location: it could hardly get more central. The service was friendly. Breakfast was ok but nothing special.

The hotel has a perfect location in the middle of everything, elegant rooms but in desperate need of a brush-up. Breakfast was delicious and served in the beautiful restaurant. Also Bar Socis was nice with live music.

As usual in old hotels there is that strange smell in passageway. Furniture in room was black with lot of big mirrors. I felt like in some scary movie. Bathroom was so tiny. Probably the smallest bathroom what I have seen. The only good thing is the location of hotel. It's located right across the street at central station.

Dier Viesha Thank you very much for your feedback. We collect these kinds of reviews for future plannings. The bathrooms in some of the rooms are indeed quite small. Our house was build 100 years ago, when guests had different needs. The building is also protected by Finnish Museum Authority, so major alterings can't be done. In the future renewings... More

+ : location (very close to the Main Street and also the central station), cleanliness, ability to choose your own pillow, interior. - : some of the staff (some of the breakfast staff not so polite, more acting like polices that wants to make you feel stupid) and the breakfast overall - bad quality.

We stayed at this hotel for a night as we were attending a concert in central Helsinki. The hotel is in a very good location as it is situated just opposite the central railway station of Helsinki. We booked a club room and were very pleased with the size of it. The room was very clean. However even though it... More

Perfect old building situated near the hot spots in Helsinki. The staff was very friendly, the room was clean and nice decorated, the food was excellent (very diversified) and the drinks as well. Overall, a great experience!

We were looking forward to staying in this hotel in December as a family. I was very disappointed to receive an email stating they were cancelling our booking and could move us to the Holiday Inn or Crowne Plaza. No explanation and no word of apology. I have had no reply to my email by return and can only suggest... More

Experience was OK but considering the value for money-ratio it was definately not worth the relatively high price. Location is good if not excellent but the hotel is old. The venues for the bar and the brasserie are beautiful but the rooms and hallways just look plain and worn-out leaving the over-all impression lame. Breakfast buffet was definitely nothing special.

One of the oldest hotel in Helsinki with nice 1900th century atmosphere. In the lobby the interior was old fashioned. Rooms were big and clean and quiet. Beds and pillows were extremely nice. They have exceedingly fine looking dining room. Service was excellent. All and all money well spent
