Stayed here as part of a business trip that I extended for the weekend. Initially I stayed at the Scandic Continental next door, which was rather depressing (very Soviet-style architecture and spartan rooms), so when I was able to move to the CP I was very happy. Front desk was very pleasant and upgraded me to an executive room, which gave me access to their lounge. The room was very nice; comfortable and modern, with some fantastic views over central Helsinki. The club lounge was simple, but clean and comfortable. The breakfast served here was simple yet filling and in the evenings drinks were served. Free WiFi in the hotel - wow! Not many countries or hotels offer this.
Location is also nice. 20-25 mins walk from central Helsinki, or a few minutes by tram, which stops right in front of the hotel.
The pool / sauna complex in the basement of the hotel is impressive and free for hotel guests. I thoroughly enjoyed this and it was a nice place to meet locals and have them explain the true Finnish sauna experience!
Price was also really good for this hotel and I highly recommend it to anyone wanting to visit lovely Helsinki.
