I had to choose a hotel in my hometown because my flat were being refurbished. Although my stay was short we spent plenty of time inside. The location cannot be better, the breakfast is gorgeous and the chambermaids are helpfull and very polite. Do not miss it while staying in Helsinki.

Age for sure is visible in rooms where single room very small, even close to uk levels. Though location is perfect for city central. Good buffet breakfast and nice & helpful personnel. If arriving own car, parking hall door just in front. Note, only side street parking places available in city centre if to arrive after midnight.

The location is one of the best in the area. You are not far from transportation where you need to get to the market square or anywhere else in Helsinki. The room itself is clean, I love the shower and the modern feel of the living space. The reason I did not give this hotel five stars would be because... More

The location is superb, this is probably the best location where a hotel can be in Helsinki! They do have rooms with bathtubs and it's a huge plus for me! The breakfast area (Fransmanni) is too tiny, but they do have a few tables outside as well (enjoyable during the summer but beware of the seagulls!).

Does what it says on the tin, basic no thrills city hotel. Lower class than a uk Travel Lodge and Premier Inn. Wouldn't stay again as I'm sure for €150 there is better. Had to move luggage as the hotel was closing for Xmas at noon, which should have been advised.

Just in the centre of Helsinki, five minutes away the Railway Central Station. The room was larger than I expected and very comfortable (free wifi). Friendly and helpful staff. It was a nice surprise because the price was cheaper than other hotels I have been looking. Breakfast was the only point to improve, as the room was too crowded every... More

We stayed for a week in August and had a lovely time. We especially liked the inhouse sauna, which is of course standard in Finland. The hotel was very clean and staff were friendly and helpful. The food at breakfast was lovely with a large selection.Overall a great experience. Would go again. Good value for money.
