This hotel has a lovely reception area and the staff were very helpful. It is within easy walking distance to the center and you have no need of a taxi to get around as there are plenty of nice restaurants and bars in the center. The rooms we stayed in are in the next building and were a little too uniform for my liking, all black and chrome and it was hard to see in the bathroom the light did not seem to turn up far enough. Not a very nice view either but the same is true for a lot of city hotels. The bed was very comfortable though and as we only stayed one night I was not too bothered about anything else. If you go to Helsinki take a trip to Tallinn... well worth it.
