A no frills, centrally located, friendly staff. Rooms clean, so clean and designed verge of monastic. Our room was nicely sized. Great generous breakfast for all styles. And check out the prices!! The bar seemed nice, a bar in the hotel for us was essential in subzero weather.

The cost for the two weeks was very reasonable and was train enough to stay there, as Helsinki can be expensive. The front of house staff and restaurant staff... More

Sure this hotel has a great location, very reasonable prices, clean rooms, outstanding breakfast and is close to public transportation of every kind, but the staff is the best this world traveler has ever experienced! They are knowledgeable, willing and capable. Can't bet that combination.

The first impression of this hotel can be a bit misleading as the doorway looks somewhat run-down.
