I was very surprised with this "hotel". There is no staff, no service, no breakfast. It's just an old apartment building that somebody decided to call a hotel. Terrible. It definitely doesn't cost its money.

Hotel is located just outside of the main "hub" of town, definitely a nice area. Plenty of local attractions located close by, about 15 - 20 minute walk from the city centre. The hotel itself was nice enough, clean room and functional facilities, wifi was a bit slow though.

Location is great, the tram station's really close. The room was spaсious with everything you need, it's so great to have your own kitchen in the room. What else...free sauna, I think from 6 to 11 p.m., don't remember exactly. It's a really nice place to stay:)

It was a great pleasure to stay literaly next to the Uspenskiy Cathedral and close to the centre of the Finnish capital on a reasonable price. Room was spacious and clean and the service staff was more than helpful and correct !

Located conveniently for short walks to groceries, the water, and even local market. Quiet without much city commotion. The rooms are VERY Outdated unlike what their advertising shows. We were given a different style room than we had booked. Things are well used and basic. It is about double the price to some other nicer city hotels.

We rented an apartment here for ten nights and loved it. Even in winter, downtown Helsinki is an easy, scenic walk away, perhaps 20 minutes at a leisurely pace. (The tram will take you there in five minutes.) The harbor markets -- both indoor and outdoor -- are even closer, as is the Viking ferry terminal. The apartment was clean... More

The apartments are well-sized, but basic. Location is great, right on the marina in the East of the city. The tram easily connects you to all other areas of the city. The sauna has to be booked in advance (in time slots) but is worth doing as its private for 1 hour then. The reception closes at 5pm each day,... More

Great location. Specially for those travelling to Helsinki with ferry to the South harbor. Calm place near the center of Helsinki. Clean rooms and good service by phone. Luggage room is locked, while leaving it after check out.
