With Helsinki being a compact city sightseeing throughout the city can... More

Ideal location in the Helsinki city center. Good standard of bedrooms with nice view over the square by the central train station. Breakfast quality is poor for this standard of hotel. And laundry bags are not collected in the bedroom (need to carry it to the reception down stair...).
