I had read very favourable reviews of this hotel so had a certain expectation upon arriving. On first appearance, one is greeted by friendly staff and a nice chilled-out ambiance. However, there seemed to be a problem with the drainage, resulting in a nasty smell coming from the bathroom. We asked to be moved to a different room it was... More

The hotel is on one floor in what appears to be an office building right downtown across from Stockmann the big department store. Stayed for 1 night and was very pleased with the accommodations. Any hotel in Helsinki seems to be extremely expensive so a budget option that provides a reasonably sized and comfortable bed and room was nice to... More

Agree with the other reviews which praise this hotel's relatively budget friendly prices and excellent location. We also found the staff exceptionally helpful and rooms comfortable and sheltered from outside noise (the windows were double glazed). The only negative was the we were given a room right next to the reception area (when we opened our room door, we were... More

I really enjoyed my stay here. The staff was very friendly and helpful. This is a perfect location and near hotels that cost double what this one is. I recommend booking ahead because if there are events in the area, this hotel could fill up fast. I had a room with a bathroom all to myself. I traveled by myself... More

Thank you for your kind words. We are currently looking into expanding the receptions opening hours to 24 hours a day, so soon that won't be a problem anymore. More

Very simple hotel well equipped with main services in a very great location. Excellent quality price-location. I'm in Helsinki at least once per year for my own pleasure 'cause I'm personally in love with Finland and Finnish people and actually I use to rent a flat for longer period but if you need only to sleep and have a start...

Thank you for writing a review. Good that you liked one of our newly renovated rooms. Unfortunately only half of the rooms have been renovated thus far. We are currently renovating the rest of them so soon all the rooms will be in pristine condition. More

Our family of four flies to Russia through Helsinki every year and this year we finally decided to spend the last night of our trip in Helsinki to check out the downtown area and just get a feel for the city. I selected this Hotel based upon price and previous reviews and am wholly satisfied with our choice. The Hotel... More

Thank you for your review and some good tips for visitors in Helsinki. We do realize the old age of the lift might cause some problems with guests who have gotten used to much more modern lifts, I do guarantee however that it is perfectly safe. Hopefully we can get a new lift installed to the building as soon as... More

Location is very good-near the Helsinki main railway station, means, nearly in the center of the city. Spend there 2 nights, only coming to sleep. From this point there were no probs.. All other services ( restaurant, room service, etc.) didn't use at all - so, do not have com- ments about..

Yes this is a basic hotel but it's the best bang for your buck in Hel$inki that's for sure. The location is excellent and our private twin ensuite was comfortable and quiet. The tv even had a few english channels. The deep tub was a little weird but better than the drains with no shower curtains we had in Turkey... More

Helsinki is a very expensive city and this hotel is one of (if not) the cheapest hotels in central Helsinki. The hotel is a short walk from the train station and the main shopping streets. The rooms are basic but clean and the hotel staff are very friendly and helpful. Whilst the hotel’s central location is very convenient, is also... More

Thank you for your review. We are currently fitting new sound-isolated double windows to all the rooms under renovation, so sound coming from the vibrant street downstairs will not be a problem soon. More

It's the cheapest hotel in Helsinki (bar hostels) and is fine without being special. A clean room, friendly staff who speak good English but no reception after 7p.m. on Sunday nor before 8 a.m. the rest of the week. Very central location (5 minutes walk from bus & railway stations and 10 minutes from most harbour terminals). All it needs... More
