I loved this hotel for several reasons: architecture and decoration is really cool, original 50's style. I was lucky to be upgraded to a top floor two room-suite with terrace and nice view over the neon lights of central Helsinki. Floors of oak gives a good feeling of quality. Best of all: Very comfortable bed and different sized pillows. And the room was completely silent! No noisy air con, elevators or slamming doors. I could highly recommend this suite for both business and pleasure!
Breakfast hall is really special and choice of food abundant. There is a sauna with a view which I did not have the opportunity to try. Location is perfect right in the city center.
