“good value if compared to the rest of Europe”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed June 30, 2014

It is located on one of the major access roads to the center of Helsinki which is 10 minutes walk from the hotel. Staff was helpful and friendly. The decoration of the room was a little "tired"
but functional

Room Tip: In June 2014 the hotel is being remodeled: Ask for a floor in which no remodeling is going on.

My wife and I had booked a so-called superior extra room. The room was dusty in general and even had dust bunnies in the closet. Also the room had some indescribable mess under the windows which looked like an unfinished ventilation- or heating device. This device had a permanent humming sound and a periodic more noisy sound which efficiently woke us up whenever it sounded. Further, we couldn't turn on the reading lamps at the bed and the mattress in the bed was so worn out that the slightest movement from one of us was transferred to the other by springs so tired that it felt like we were at sea.

All in all a very disappointing stay.

With excellent connection to Helsinki airport (just 6.5 euro with Finnar bus) and excellent rooms is good choice, if you are OK with the price. Breakfast was excellent also with wide selection. Wi-fi was not working the first hours of my staying, but later was OK

Room Tip: Just remember that this period of the year (midsummer period) during the night is not actually dark...

The Hotel currently under renovation but still works well and the room I had was excellent. It is a large city centre hotel Friendly helpful staff, good breakfast and excellent rooms on the 9th Floor.

Room Tip: I used the 9th Floor Exec rooms and it was an excellent room. Quiet, clean, comfortable and spacious...

Stayed here 1 night and participated in a business meeting.
- Rooms are very old (that is why they are renovating)
- Conference Room dates back to 1960's
- Lunch (Set Menu) was mediocre (2 slices of Thin Fish + Dessert + Coke or Fanta)
Rude serving staff
Good reception people
10-12 minutes walking to city centre

Room Tip: Ask for the renovated rooms.

A good spacious room (the standard), all basic needs covered. We stayed there only one night from Thu till Fri.

We didn't hear any of the noise other people have written about although the construction works were still going on; perhaps we were lucky to have our windows to the better side.

Unfortunately we had to skip the breakfast as it was too early for us: only until 9.30, and we needed our holiday beauty sleep!

Huge queues to check in. Was told room not ready so decided to go for lunch. Returned 2 hours later to find even larger queues then was told that room was still not ready. Also hotel is undergoing refurbishment that wasn't advertised when we booked our room.
