The Aleksanteri is a good 4* option in a city that has a number of similar priced alternatives. My room was located in the older of the two buildings that form part of the hotel complex. Initially the layout is a little confusing - two separate lifts taking you to two separate parts of the hotels and a sea of connecting doors, some of which require the room key to enter, so a little annoying if laden down with bags. But overall the hotel has managed to respond to the complexities of re-using an old building
My room was perfectly acceptable although a bit on the dark side, not helped by the use of heavy brown furniture. Other colleagues staying at the same time had an altogether different 'visual' experience, with some of the 'themed' rooms as mentioned in previous reviews.
Spotlessly clean throughout. Breakfast was excellent and the fast free Wi Fi (once you'd keyed in the hotel code) was a welcomed bonus.
Overall a good choice and would be happy to return.
