We spent four nights here and must give first mention to sleep quality. The bed was superbly comfortable and we felt like taking the soft pillows home with us (but we didn't). Our room (no. 538) was very clean and had a safe, bar fridge ( thankfully not filled with drinks we didn't want), an iron and ironing board, kettle, free wifi and aTV with the BBC and CNN. And the curtains were thick enough to make the room dark enough for sleeping.
The hotel is about 500m from Ruoholahti metro station (which is two stops from Central Station, a €2.50 fare) and there are supermarkets and restaurants nearby. The surrounding area is mainly office blocks, and is very quiet at night ( and in the daytime, for that matter). So there are no attractions nearby, but plenty of shops and it's just a short ( but expensive, like everything in Helsinki) ride to the city.
We paid AUD $168 for room and breakfast..
The breakfast selection was good and we had no complaints with the service.
