We stayed with our two boys aged four and six and enjoyed a family room - queen bed, and an L shape sofa bed pulled out with two beds made up on it. Our boys don't sleep well together in abed but as the sofa was so large they could be separated easily and slept very well. Our room was on the second floor so not much of a view but it was close to reception which we appreciated. Real coffee machine in the foyer for a couple of euro self service style. Gym was great but we found it very hot in the hotel and only a small fan too keep cool made my run hotter than on a summers day in Tropical cairns where we come from! This is a very minor point. Breakfast brilliant. Ate at a restaurant called Merri..... Can't recall the rest of the name shot walk turn left out of the hotel across the road on the harbour. Great service good food. Keep going along the same road on the other side hemmingways bar was cosy for a beer and snack. The hotel have a play are in the foyer for kids, tv, small children's games and table soccer. We ate in the restaurant I had pizza and it was great although toppings are sparse. Reception was very friendly all spoke amazingly good English. They even provided small gifts for the children upon arrival which they appreciated. We were very pleased with the price..the hotel website is the best price. We stayed for two nights and didn't bother with any Helsinki cards etc. we did buy a 24 hour tram ticket if you use it for three rides it's cheaper than separate tickets an had four suitcases just hop on the back of the tram no probs with space. We walked to town it took 15 minutes tops. Very easy, however it was raining and bitterly cold so...Number six is the tram you want for this hotel it is the last stop on that route. We took finair bus to and from the airport it's right outside the terminal, 6.50 euro for adults one way children were free not sure from what age. Stops right outside the train station. No booking required they depart every 20 mins and you can pay onboard card or cash - I had a QANTAS cash card which wouldn't work however. It didn't work for taxis in Rovaniemi either.
