Breakfast is good altough the restaurant area is small and gets easily crowded. Service is good and the price-quality ratio is excellent. Suits for both business and... More

Nice little hotel next to city center. Shopping center cross the street and the main shopping street is within 5min walking distance. Ask room with windows without streetview for better sleep quality. Good breakfast and reseption service.

I stayed two nights in this hotel which is very centrally located. Staff was polite, rooms were nice and there was a free wifi in the room. However it did not work at all one evening. The only shortcoming was the breakfast time, which ended too early (9.30). Hence I ended up without breakfast one morning.

This hotel is at the heart of everything in Helsinki. Everything you need and want is literally a walking distance away, brilliant shops, bars and restaurants near you. Front desk staff very friendly and helpful. We will definitely return here next summer.

The hotel is near everything you want to see in Helsinki. Only a couple of minutes to go from the main railway station. Great breakfast with the possibility to make your own smoothie. Friendly staff and they fixed immediately a minor cleaning problem in my room. The room was big enough. It's not luxurious but ok. The wifi was ok... More

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

This hotel is located a short walk from the railway station, and the quayside Market Square, so its location is good. Although there is a McDonalds and Roberts Coffee shop opposite the hotel there is no tea/coffee making facilities in the room. Our room was spacious, but the central heating/air conditioning did not appear to work and the room was... 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...
