“Great ONLY for budget travelers”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed February 27, 2012

The Omena chain offers cheap accommodation. Especially if there are three of four people in the room, they are a bargain.
The rooms are OK. Our mattresses kept sliding off the base of the bed.
The shower heads are the strange roof things we don't usually have in Finland and that's why they are awkward to us.
It also kept dripping in the middle of the night quite loudly.
Noise from the other rooms can be heard easily.
TV big, new and not always working properly.

They do have a microwave and a small fridge, which add up to the bargain.
The locations are excellent.

DO NOTE: Omena hotels are all self-service, which means there are no staff, no clean sheets or emptying the bins while you are there. If you don't mind these things, they are GREAT.

Rooms were like ship cabins and actually the beds felt similar to Silja Line or Viking Line beds.
This is hotel is proabably ok for young people, but I would not recommend this for adults or couples looking for a romantic stay. Room was very worn out and air conditioning controls were broken.
NOthing good to say actually about the place.

If you're looking for a place with great facilities, friendly service and some luxury ... then don't choose this. If you're looking for a very cheap place to sleep and leave your bags, this does the job. The room is comfortable enough - TV, coffee making facilities, ok bathroom - and the location is great: lots of bars and restaurants nearby, 5 mins walk to the centre and 10 mins walk from the harbour. We didn't mind it at all and saved plenty of money.

Like the omena eerintikatu in a nearby street, this hotel has nobody around, no loft. The entrance is dirty, often packed with people drinking. Drunk people come in at 4 o'clock in the morning and make a lot of noise and there is no night watchman to prevent this to happen, so it happens! We did not receive our room number in time so it was a difficulty, we were obliged to use the elevator which was slow and the TV is very difficult to manipulate with the telecommand which did not work very well. Apart from that the room is large and comfortable. The bathroom was equipped with alarms for disabled people but no switch for the light! There was no indication on the buttons that that was an alarm so when I tried to switch off the light the alarm went on but nobody from the staff never came. Could not find how to stop that. So these alarms are totally useless in case of real necessity. You can die before anybody comes to help you! The absence of loft, stairway and receptionist and the poor breakfast in a fast pizza boot are not adding to it. Cheap for Helsinki maybe (but still 75€ plus breakfast) but not enjoyable at all. I wrote to them for a problem I had on the monday, and got a reply 6 days later only while I was back home!!!
