The room was huge with a comfy bed and included a sauna, still the price was cheap. No breakfast, but you can fix your own and keep some snacks in the fridge or head to tram and go to center for some. Hotel is located in a quiet street 1 km from the center. If you arrive with a car,... More

Stayed here for a work visit. Got an upgrade to a large room, which was nice and had good views of the dock area of Helsinki. In general the apartment was nice and well kitted out, but there were a couple of areas where it could have been improved. First, there were some weird and unpleasant smells in the entrance... More

Stayed there with my spouse for the weekend. We had a studio room in the old part of the hotel, which I liked a lot. The location is excellent, the neighbourhood consists of great art nouveau buildings, short walking distance to the market place and to the centre. Quiet surroundings, no noise from the street. Good quality for a human... More

+ lovely area + easy booking and it was possible to stay just the one night + within walking distance from centre - dirty, not cleaned properly for ages (stains all over the walls and doors etc.) - old, worn out and dated furnishings -- not only dated, but dirty and in bad condition Overall, we feel a bit cheated...

There are one or two down sides to staying here (mostly lack of attention to details such as working lights as highlighted by other reviewers) but I really enjoyed it on our recent visit. The check-in process was a lot easier and smoother than I was expecting it to be, the apartment we had was spacious with enough room on... More

The Hotel is based on an apartment service - you'll pay for the room and you'll get an apartment, with a kitchen, like a studio room. Well this comes handy if you want to save money in the pretty expensive city (with cooking your own food). The TV and the kitchen appliances are modern, the beds are comfy and the... More

Checkin was easy as done during staff hours of 9-5, good location close to town walking or by tram. This is a very basic apartment hotel with limited kitchen cooking facilities. Everything is old and outdated. The sauna was good.
