From the outside the hotel is unassuming, on the inside it is fresh and well appointed. We stayed one night in a room with twin beds together. The room was of a good size and clean. We stayed on a Saturday night and the room was quiet and we had a comfortable nights sleep. No coffee/tea making facilities as is generally the case in Europe - it would improve travel in Europe if all hotels provided such facilities. However there is an iron and ironing board in the room. There is a good size shower room (no bath). Good towels and bath robes provided. There is also good wardrobe space with a room safe.
The staff were all very pleasant and helpful. There is a good buffet selection for breakfast. Overall this is a very comfortable and quiet hotel which provides a great base from which to explore Helsinki at a very reasonable price.
At the moment the courtyard is undergoing renovation but this did not affect us in any way.
The hotel is just a few minute walk from the market square and harbour. Helsinki is easy to walk around if you are moderately fit. Also the number 2/3 tram (formerly 3T) which passes through market square, does a figure 8 loop through the city and is an inexpensive way to tour the city. A 24 hour ticket is 8 Euros. From the harbour at market square you can also catch the ferry to Suomenlinna Fortress which is also covered by the 24 hr travel ticket.
