This hotel is located about 4km outside Helsinki city centre, but easily accessed by tram (7A/B outside the door) or train (Pasila/Bole about 500m). It was perfect for us as we were mainly visiting around the Kapyla area.
Reception staff were very good and always helpful with an excellent command of English as you would expect. Despite being there for a week we had to, on at least 3 occassions, recharge our room cards as they had failed to work (they also operate the lift.)
The thing that let the whole place down is the general room housekeeping. We had left the sign for the room to be cleaned when we were out but was not done for 2 days and for a further day when we mentioned it to reception. Hence that tea/coffee was not replaced either!!
The breakfast buffet was good and should appeal to all tastes. Free wi-fi on the first 2 floors needs to be extended to all rooms. You can use your lap tops in the rooms but not your mobile phone!!
Overall, a good hotel, just could do a little better. This hotel was booked for us by the company we were assisting during our visit. I like some others here, would prefer to stay in the City Centre given the option and travel from there.
