This hotel is situated in a very good location near the Helsinki train station. Plenty of restaurants, bars, shopping places, and things to to do nearby. Front desk staff were nice and check in and check out went quite smoothly. The area in front of the front desk is smallish, so it gets too crowded easily. Corridors were a bit... More

If I had reviewed this hotel last year I should have wrote "excellent" and "the best", but quality is a little lowered now ... The location is fantastic; it lies in the city center, near the harbour, near the tourist office and close to Stockmann mall, in the vicinity of a tramway stop; rooms are really comfortable, having iron and...

Good things about this hotel: Location: This hotel is located on a side street with shops across the building. So you get a "silent night"! Pillows: for once they were comfy. Yaaaaay! Good assortment for breakfast. AC in the room. The two restaurants located at the bottom floor; one French, one British. Great food. (Tip! Try "Fish and chips" in... More

Dear Stina_Uppsala, Thank you for your review of our hotel! Great to hear that you had a good night's sleep here. We have pillows in two different sizes in all of the rooms. But just in case the two pillows are not enough, we also have few ergonomic pillows available. These ergonomic pillows can be ordered from the reception or... More

The room was old, and one of those old hallways which smell a bit and make you not to happy to be returning to your room, but price was cheaper than other Helsinki hotels, only by a bit though. I still paid about 180 euro for a very mediocre room, on a positive note front door staff very very friendly,... More

Nice hotel in a good location (centre of Helsinki). Room had everything needed. One great thing was that my room windows where pointing inner courtyard so it was very qiuet. Breakfast was good. And of course it had sauna, who hasn't been there must go to sauna.

The website shows plenty of nice pictures of design rooms. However, the room we had that design but felt incredibly empty. Nothing on the walls, a curtain that can't be closed (it's just decoration), fortunately there were blinds for the window, but the window itself was sealed and could not be opened. As the air was a bit 'old' we... More

Got a good deal on this hotel for a party of 3 adults. Good central location, pleasant room and beds, although bathrooms needed a redurb and the rooms walls had a few knocks. Fine for a few nights. Service was good.

This hotel is situated on a walking street in a very central place of Helsinki. But that's all. Long waiting lines at the reception, no answer on the phone, poorly equipped room, and the price to have the breakfast in the room is... 15 Euros! Not for business definitely. Maybe it was because I was there in summertime.

Stayed as part of a conference. Basic rooms with not a lot of character. They did have all modern facilities and the wifi was good. good service and location near to most points of interest in Helsinki. Great breakfast with lots of choice.
