The hotel is historlcal and it can be felt. My overall impression of the hotel was positive. The atmosphere was a bit busy, everyone seemed to hurry somewhere.
The main entrance is not accessible for wheelchair. You have to ring a bell to get the receptionist to let you with the staff elevator. It wasn't such an easy thing to pop out outside quickly because the receptionist was needed to let me in and out. The accessible room is large and has a proper toilet (although the towels were kept too high for me). The staff was busy and therefore not able to help immediately.
The room service didn't have any vegetarian main courses. The breakfast room (that also serves as a highly appreciated restaurant) has a great views over central Helsinki.
