I stayed in the Torni for 3 nights in the Summer of 2010 with my boyfriend. We had a double en-suite room in the third or fourth floor. The room was really nice and clean, bed was really comfy etc. It is probably the best hotel in Helsinki, as far as I'm concerned.
The location is great, just in the middle of central Helsinki.
The breakfast is average, being a bit industrial as many of the hotel breakfasts in Finland. However, you have a lot to choose from!
The bar/café on the roof is something to see - the prices are really expensive but the view is great. It is a really nice place to visit when travelling in Helsinki.
The only warning I need to give are the toilets. Torni has a unique style of having the toilets and the shower box made from glass (or something through which you can see). For couples/good friends it is not a problem, but if you are planning on taking a twin room for example with someone you don't know that well, bare in mind that the other one can see you taking a shower/going to the toilet. It's actually a fun detail!
