Definetely not a bad hotel, but it depends what you expect. Not close to the city center, no restaurants or shopping around, very quite place. Nice rooms, helpful staff, if you on the river side; a nice view.

This hotel is well=appointed and quite pleasant but the downside is that it is a really awkward distance from the city centre and taxis are quite expensive. There were a couple of bars and restaurants nearby but these were only discovered near the end of our trip.

I was attending the IB Workshop from 25th to 27th of July, and my experience was just positive starting from the reception (staff is very polite) and ending with the room. Everybody was complaining that AC doesn't work well but my room was cool and nice, everything was on place. By bus # 65 A I easily reached the malls... More

Excellent standard for a Holiday Inn. Great food in the restaurant. Rooms a good size. Only downside to the hotel, is it is a little way from the city 10-15 min taxi ride, and the metro stop is about 15 min walk away, and then 20-25 min ride into the city.

I've spent here 3nights and it was not the first time. But is getting worst and worst. The ventilation in the rooms was terrible and noise. I wake up every morning with horrible headache. Breakfast terrible. Too many people, little service, tables dirty and if you are not an early morning person, you find very little left. No coffee already... More

Great beds and shower AND a good pillow. Near shops and supermarket - where we got some good hot food because the restaurants weren't open apart from burgers. The hotel had a really good breakfast. The staff were friendly and helpful.

From the West ruoholahti subway you have to walk about 10minutes to the left towards the main entrance of the KALPPAKESKUS mall before you can see the hotel entrance.

A convenient hotel for the business district, opposite a shopping mall, round the corner from a sports centre overlooking the water. Receptionists and bar staff, waiters in the good restaurant will bend over backwards to make you welcome.
