Stayed 5 nights in late June/early July and found the hotel more than adequate. The location is absolutely first class being right by the main railway station, a metro station and busy tram stop. It is a leisurely stroll to Market Square. Reception was efficient. Rooms have sufficient space and all facilities and were clean and well maintained. The breakfasts are huge but the Breakfast Room can be a bit of a squeeze with large crowds. the major problem with this hotel is the poor standard of window coverings and noise from the trams. Bearing in mind that in summer it is light in Helsinki until at least 11.00pm the window coverings in no way provided any sort of blackout, and sleep was difficult because of the light. Otherwise a good place to stay
