“Great views!”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 20, 2013

Got a large room with a great view. Receptionists were nice. Breakfast OK. Executive lounge had pretty good food and drinks, but hours are limited. Hotel is situated 10-15 minutes walking from down town - ok for most, but there are hotels closer to the hot spots.

Stayed May 2013, traveled with friends

It is some way out of town but that's not a problem as the tram stop to the city centre is close to the hotel and fares are very reasonable. It is about a 20 minute journey and passes many of the sights of Helsinki.
The suite we had facing the seaside was fabulous and very spacious, but like most things in Helsinki it doesn't come cheap.
There is so much to see and do and the open air museum which gives a real insight into Finnish history is only a short walk away.
Other interesting sights were the Olympic stadium and the Fineteresting. Art Gallery, Ateneum.
A boat cruise around the harbour was also very informative.
All our food was delicious but very expensive by English standards.
The Hotel restaurant was OK but avoid the room service option.
Breakfast was exceptionally good.
We tried a few restaurants in the city including La Famiglia which was great value and Savotta which was fun with Bear salami and Reindeer meat.
We also went to 2 concerts in superb surroundings.
Generally a great 5 day break and we were surprised how few English people appeared to be around, as it has many attractions appealing to English tastes.
The hotel is absolutely great and the staff were very keen to please.
I definitely suggest you give it a try.

Very nice setting with lake view and access for bathing. The hotel rooms are modernly furnished and excellent breakfast buffet. It is not downtown, but if you want a quiet oasis to stay in or you have business nearby, this is an excellent stop-over. I will come again.

A beautiful resort hear Helsinki. Gorgeous rooms. Exquisite surroundings. The lobby needs updating. The breakfast was good; the dinner menu was also good. I'd definitely go there again. It is a bit of a distance from the downtown area, but you can catch the tram right at the base of hill on the top of which the hotel is built. Make sure you get the directions to the tram because we missed the initial connection and walked around a bit before finding another tram stop. It is about twenty minutes from the downtown.

This is a very Nice hotel, in a beautiful location. The hotel staff are very friendly and polite. When booking rooms you must get a sea view or the hotel is a waste - stay somewhere else a lot cheaper. Once you have a sea view the location is stunning. It is not the best value Hilton in the world - but the breakfast is good choice and value

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights in early June 2013.

We booked a sea view room and the view was breathtaking.

Room was very nice but the window didn't open and there was no air conditioning. It got a bit warm as the sun never stopped shining the whole time we were there.

Would stay here again and recommend to others.

Dear Guest,

Thank you for posting your comments here on TripAdvisor!

We are pleased to hear your stay over all was a succesful one. Thank you also for bringing to our attention the airpconditioning, all rooms do have airconditioning, which is the reason for not being able to open the window at it affects it. We will, however, make sure that maintenance checks that everything is in working order as we do want to make sure all our guests are comfortable in their rooms.

Thank you for staying with us and we hope you will be back soon!

Yours sincerely,

Very nice structure and location. Price is relatively high but not excessive. Very good business facilities. Excellent breakfast. The restaurant menu is good but limited. More variety would be appreciated. The gym is small but comfortable and not too crowded.
