We arrived by train from Oulu and the hotel is only a short walk from the train station. Check-in was efficient. The lobby is sort of gloomy and old-fashioned but our room (816) was fine; roomy with twin beds plus a couch that could serve as a third bed, if needed; very clean. Built-in desk, mini-fridge, closet, wide-screen TV, hair dryer, iron and ironing board. Good-sized bathroom with a nice shower. Free wifi with a strong signal and good response. Breakfast was very good with a selection of both hot and cold items, open from 6:30 on weekdays. However, this is a big hotel and if you get down there when everyone else comes for breakfast you’ll find it quite crowded. We got there about 7:30 and by the time we left the room was pretty full, so the earlier the better. We needed to catch the ferry to Tallinn the next morning but their early breakfast (available from 5) isn’t much. We waited until 6:30 for the regular breakfast but were then rushed to catch the boat. We asked for a quiet room and this room was fine. There isn’t much traffic overnight on this street anyway and from the 8th floor we really couldn’t hear anything. The only thing we would have liked to have would have been a coffee/tea making facilities in the room. There is coffee available all the time in the lobby, but at a price of EUR 2.50.
