Single room had all what I needed: decent bed, toilet, shower and Internet connection. Room was quite small but I don't understand why people need extra space. I needed room for sleeping and spending some time in the evening and for that it was just fine. Walls are quite small and I could easily hear the TV from the next... More

I can not recomment this hotel. The lifts are dangerous. I stay on the 6. floor and during the night there was so much noise comming from out side and from other guest. The breakfast was so awfull and the breakfast restaurant was so stuffy.

This hotel's saving grace is its proximity to multiple tram lines, necessary if you want to go downtown or anywhere else. Reception staff are helpful but reserved, breakfast is seriously dull and the rooms tiny (I stayed in a single, which had an additional bed on the wall above my bed - felt like I was in a train compartment)....

The Cumulus Olympia is a 10 min tram trip from the city. There are three trams the pass in front of the hotel which is very convenient and there is an R kiosk on the hotel corner where you can buy a tram ticket. I bought a 6 day card which costs less than four separate day cards. The card... More

It's hard for me to get excited about this hotel, but at the same time I can't really say anything negative about it either. In a pinch or if you got a deal (I didn't think the value for money was great), this hotel would be fine. The lobby is quite small, and everything about the hotel is plain. Having... More

I spent here 3 nights for business reasons; check in and check out were both fast. My room, a single room, was small but clean and with all the necessary furnitures. Wifi did work well, bathroom quite small but shower much bigger then many other hotels I have been to. I could print my boarding card flight from the computer... More

I stayed here during the Helsinki GoSport trade fair as an exhibitor. It was approximately 20 minutes from the exhibition hall and about the same distance to the city centre by public transportation. The building itself is dated and needs renovating. I stayed in a single room that had everything I needed (no mini-bar) but the room itself was very... More

We was at this hotel in 2006 early December. The hotel was about 5-8 klm from center, but had the prevelege of being just in front of a tram station which made it quite convinience in terms of transportation. The staff at the receprion was rude, althoight the hotel was clean and the breakfast descent. The hotel is situated infront... More

The hotel's got good location, 10 min by tram and the stop is just in front of the hotel. Rooms are simple and small but tidy and cute. We had included breakfast during our stay and we enjoyed it -a great variety of meals,drinks and fresh breads. The service was good though at the reception desk they were a little... More
