Location is quite good, many attractions, shops and restaurants are well within walking distance. It seems, however, a little bit far away from public transport when you are arriving the bus terminal with luggage.
Staff were good and speak English very well, no problems.
Room: My room was probably for the disabled (judging from the bathroom). The room looked like an apartment more than hotel. It was spacious with a couch, decoration looks basic (nothing like those photos on their website) but it was clean, with working wifi and everything I need.
The hotel is not directly adjacent to driving roads so it's very quiet, I could sleep very well.
Bathroom wasn't very good looking but it's basically clean. One strange thing is that the bath was drilled with many holes so it's strictly for shower only but why don't they simply remove it?
Breakfast was good with lots of choices, but the place is small can get very crowded.
Overall it's a good choice for those who just need a basic hotel service. Good value for money (things in Finland are not cheap) in good location.
