“Lovely hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 19, 2010

Really nice hotel, decent location in Helsinki.

The only drawback is the cost but then Helsinki is incredibly expensive (and ridiculously cold in January!).

5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 6, 2010

This hotel is in a great location in town that made it very easy to get around either on foot or on the tram. The rooms were very comfortable and well-furnished that made the stay enjoyable. Also a great buffet breakfast. I can't say enough about the customer service I received at the hotel. The front desk staff were extremely friendly and helpful with making dinner reservations, suggestions, etc. I even had a mishap where something was removed by housekeeping by mistake (it was an item that looked like it could be garbage so it was thrown out) and the hotel staff was completely sympathetic and made sure that I was quickly reimbursed for the item. I have never experienced such professionalism and customer service from a hotel. I highly recommend this hotel and would stay there again.

First time I stayed in this hotel, even i've been visited in Helsinki hundred and hundreds times. Not a bad choice. Location is fine in the centre of the city. I think it's value for money.

Room was clean, spacious and quiet. There were also bathtub which is not very common nowadays in finnish hotels.

The 24/7 free internet is great. The breakfast buffet was a pleasant surprise with extraordinary choices of assortments (normally in finnish hotels breakfast buffet is quite similar). Staff were very friendly and helpful.

Only negative thing was that air condition was little bit noisy and the there were not so many satellite TV channels available.

I´ve stayed there once a month when traveling for business. Great Experience. The rooms very clean, the bar well frequented great cocktails. The restaurant in house has the best steaks in town, absolutely.
The staff always welcoming and friendly and the included breakfast was a positive surprise. I would certainly recommend it.

I wasn't impressed by the hotel. Receptionists in the check-in weren't helpful, eveything needed to be asked twice to get a answer. The hallways smelt funny. Good location tho, near a shopping centre and underground / bus station / train station. Don't go there by car - they charge 30 € for parking a day.

3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 15, 2010

We stayed at this hotel for one night. The location is good, near Kamppi metro and 10 minutes from Central station. I expected it will be closer since we were with bags, but still 10 EUR for the taxi is not a big deal. The staff is very good, we had to stay additional hours and they let us to stay, that is a big plus. The rooms are quite big, the only thing which in my opinion they need to improve is the cold floor in the small hall near the door and in the bathroom, probably carpets will be a good solution, or something like it. Free internet downstairs is always a plus. Breakfast is great to my taste.

Great clean and comfortable hotel. Our room was a standard room on the 7th floor and we were extremely happy with it. Beds were super comfy with great soft and warm duvet & pillows. Breakfast buffet was huge and tasty - just about had everything you could possibly want to eat and drink. Close to Metro but we found we walked everywhere anyway as the city is so beautiful and safe.
