This hotel is in a good location in Helsinki. I asked for a smoking room which was located on the top floor with a pretty unispiring view. Despite being a smoker the room obviously had not been particularly well ventiliated since the previous occupant. Still, the room was clean and mine had two single beds. I prefer a double bed, but it was comfortable and gave a good nights sleep. The staff were friendly and helpful, breakfast was no worse or better than any hotel of this type, the only issue being the very weak orange juice. To be honest it was obviously diluted. Overall this is a good hotel in a great city. There is a however. The bar and restaraunt are both closed on a Sunday. There are places nearby that you can eat at which is fine. In my opinion the fact a hotel of this standard that cannot cater for guests on a Sunday (including room service) is very poor. The excuse that "it isn't worth opening and this is Finland" didn't really cut it. If I didn't have to stay on a Sunday night I would consider this hotel again, but after a long day travelling guests may not want to have to go searching for somewhere to eat. Even a limited bar menu (always supposing they opened the bar) would be welcomed. The upside was that thanks to this policy i found a cracking bar that served a decent (if expensive ) steak nearby. Which is money that the hotel lost!
