Located on the Esplanade in Helsinki you cannot be in a more central location you're literally moments from all the highlights of the city. This is truely a five star hotel and the attention to detail from the embroidered logo on the sheets through to marble bathrooms is exquisite.
We had a suite which meant we overlooked the Esplanade itself.
The suite was huge and the bathroom was finished beautifully in marble with both a bath and a shower. We had some problems with the shower flooding the bathroom on a few occasions but suspect this was a small fault with the seals.
The service levels were a little disappointing as the staff seemed somewhat aloof. When we arrived in a taxi no one met us until we were in the lobby despite clearly need assistance with our luggage.
As many of the other reviews mentioned the lack of free wifi is a little disappointing in a five start hotel when in fact there is free wifi in many parts of the city.
The hotel is expensive but not out of line with other hotels in Helsinki and if you book in advance there seemed to be significant savings.
