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.

The hotel is close to many of the prime attractions in Helsinki, plus within an easy walk of the central stattion and various tram lines.

We upgraded to a superior room when arrived. In this hotel it means a little bit more room space, bathrobe, slippers and coffee/tea making equipment. Too bad that the extra space was not utilized in any way as the room only had one recliner even though there would have been space for at least three or four. So we felt... More
