Zero complaints here. Location is spot on, walking distance to the ferries and the bulk of the major attractions in the city. Rooms are spacious, they feature very tasteful modern decor with good air conditioning (30C + days whilst we were in Helsinki - A/C coped fine) and good quality WiFi, TVs are quality and large, the rooms themselves are scrupulously clean. The 2 rooms we had both had large "bathrooms" without a bath, instead a very large shower, which suits us Aussies (hate showers over baths). Reception staff are extremely friendly and helpful and speak perfect English. Breakfast included in the tariff was Continental (with a nordic slant) but very diverse to suit just about all tastes, we loved the daily variations on the breakfast salmon! Additionally there is a bottle shop (liquor store) right next door to the hotel called "Alco" ?!? So your mini bar can be supplemented very inexpensively. Not only that, there is a supermarket 2 minutes from the door so snacks can be supplemented inexpensively as well!
This hotel exceeded our expectations by miles; represented excellent value for money and if we are ever in Helsinki again we will be staying at the Fabian.
