“Good business hotel in Helsinki”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 17, 2013

I usually stay in the Plaza, so this was a first time. Good and friendly service with great breakfast. Location central, but a little pricy for what you get. Will probably stay at the Plaza next time around...

Great base to explore the hustle and bustle of the centre of Helsinki , comfortable, über stylish rooms, bars and restaurant. Faultless, apart from exchange rate not being in our favour. Definitely recommended.

Great hotel. Clean, modern, quiet. One of the largest flat screen tvs I've ever seen in a hotel room. Breakfast was amazing. So much variety and great quality. Location was very convenient. Steps from the train station. Easy bus to the airport and about a 10 minute walk from the harbor. Would definitely recommend.

My little son and I only stayed at this hotel a night, but the impressions are the best.The design and comfort are beyond all praises. And those old photos of past times in the corridors are really touchig.The location is in the very centre, but in a quiet street at the same time. Very close to the railway station, and we travelled by train. Breakfast is various and delicious.The staff at the reception are very friendly and helpful. Our staying was extended till 18.00 pm absolutely free of charge. We couldn't see any faults. When we come back to Helsinki, we'll choose the same.

I stayed here with colleagues for one night on a short business trip. We stayed at the sister hotel in Turku the night before and this hotel was even better. The room was spacious in typical Scandinavian style - the bed was huge with big comfy pillows and a huge TV adorned the opposite wall. I was on the 7th floor with roof top level views, although all I could see was scaffolding from the building opposite. The bathroom had plenty of room for my toiletries bag etc, and a good sized bath with 'mood' lighting so that just the light above the bath came on for a really relaxing soak in the bath. Breakfast was included and this was also very good - plenty of choice of hot and cold foods and waiter service for hot drinks. I won't include dinner in the hotel in my rating as this would bring it crashing down. We had to wait half an hour for a table when the restaurant wasn't even full, the electronic tablets as menus were a nightmare and the food wasn't exactly worth the wait - but that is an aside. Overall bed and breakfast here is well worth it and the hotel has a good central location.

Overall a good hotel but with some room for improvement.

Positives :
- Super efficient and friendly staff at the front desk, restaurant and bar. We checked in at 11pm when the kitchen was about to close. The gentleman at the front desk walked us to the kitchen immediately and helped us order our dinner that was delivered to the room promptly. We also requested for a late checkout which was granted free of charge.
- Nice location close to all the busy and lively neighborhoods
- Decent rooms. We went for the standard. The bathroom was a bit cramped though.
- Good breakfast


Areas of improvement:
- The hotels seems to be a bit short staffed. The major pain point was that we had to try atleast 5-6 times every time before someone responded to our call on one-touch-service either for room service, housekeeping, queries etc which was very frustrating.
- On the third day of our stay the room was not cleaned properly. We found dishes from the previous evening uncleared and the bathroom also wasn't attended to. After a few attempts from the room phone, we finally managed to speak to sometime but no one from housekeeping showed up for another 30 min. Finally I had to go downstairs and request again which was not ideal.

But for the inability to immediately reach someone when required, this hotel scores well on all other counts.
