This is a very reasonably priced hotel in a central location – very convenient to the main train station which is why we chose it. We were very happy there for a night, but wouldn’t choose to stay for a longer period.
The hotel is an old property that has been “made-over” using contemporary Scandinavian style – but nothing can disguise that it is a bit tired and run down.
Every staff member we dealt with was delightful – helpful and well versed in customer service.
We arrived around 11.30 am off a cruise ship – and were delighted to be checked into our room immediately. Our room was very compact, especially the bathroom – but everything was in good working order, the bed was very comfortable, and it was quiet and peaceful. We also appreciated that there was a small balcony (no outlook unfortunately) and windows which opened allowing for fresh air in our room.
A very good breakfast was included in the nightly rate. There was a nice little bar downstairs where we had a very pleasant night-cap before heading for bed.
I wouldn’t hesitate to stay here again if we were in transit in Helsinki.
