I was in Helsinki for the night on business and I chose this hotel via my travel agent and then TripAdvisor. The advantage and the disadvantage of the hotel is that it is in the centre of town which meant it cost an extra 39 Euro to park each day. The hotel room was clean and just what I needed.... More

The hotel is located very centrally but quiet. The room was big and super clean but lacks any charm as the hotel in general. very good breakfast with lot of choices but rather crowded restaurant. Very long queue for the check in with just 2 persons on the reception. Good and convenient for business overnights.

I've stayed in several hotels in Helsinki and this was probably one of the friendliest. The room was modern and quiet and beds comfortable. The location is great, on a pedestrian street and you are surrounded by shops and restaurants. The only downside for me was the bar. One of the things I really enjoy doing after a long day... 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
