“A clean and quiet hotel”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 9, 2014

We are a part of a Trafalgar tour group when we stayed at this hotel. The hotel was filled of clients coming from several tour groups. Still, we find the place quiet. The staff were courteous and breakfast was plenty. The hotel is quite far from the city center.

Across the hotel is a supermarket where you can buy your daily needs. They even have cooked food just in case you want something different from what you in the hotel. Inside the supermarket, there are several restaurants.

Dear Racq,

Thank You for Your feedback.
It is always very important to hear was the accommodation succeed.

From the hotel to the city center it is about 2,5 kilometers.
By Metro it's easy to go to the center.
That is good that the shopping center is located just infront of us.

I hope to see You again in the future for stay with us.

Best regards,
Tiina Heino, Duty Manager

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.

Room Tip: Our room (no.538) faced the Ruoholahti shops. Rooms on the other side face towards a lake or inlet.

Dear guest,

Thank you for writing a review about your recent stay with us. We work very hard to ensure our facilities and service are superior. We are always very happy when a guest contacts us about the great experience and service they have received. Though our hotel is not quite in the city centre, there is quick way to reach it with buses and metro. One can also enjoy the closeness or the sea and have a walk along beautiful canal nearby. Vivid attraction is also the old Cable Factory close to our hotel. It’s the largest cultural centre in Finland offering vast amount of concerts and exhibitions and events.

Once again, thank you for your kind words. We hope to have you as a guest in our hotel again soon.

Best regards, Mari Salonen General Manager

The only reason why I've stayed at this place is because this is at a walking distance from my office and suits well. anyways, the hotel is decent enough and works well for the short trips and has average looking rooms, but neat and clean.
Staff isnt very helpful, and expect customers to most things by themselves. Breakfast is okay, and the price is fine for the offerings.

I picked the hotel to be close to the location of next day's meeting and was not let down. It is outside the city centre but that is a 15 min walk or 4 min Taxi ride. Staff is friendly and helpfull. Rooms have thick curtains to keep light out during summer (nearly always light) and breakfast buffet has plenty of choice and is well organised.

Hotel is located 20 .. 30 min walking distance from Helsinki downtown (or few minutes with Metro). Nearby has one shopping mall with adequate amount of stores and some restaurants. Hotel itself is standard quality, rooms ok with good beds. Rooms are also quite quiet. Breakfast very usual, not as good as in Crowne Plaza (same chain) but ok. Staff was very friendly. Metro station is couple minutes walking distance and bus stop almost opposite/beside of the hotel.

I stayed here with a tour group on 5/21/14. The air cond. was not working and the outlets were not working. I had to use an extension cord into the bathroom to use my Cpap machine. The staff was unwilling to make any effort to remedy the situation. I will recommend to Trafalgar to take this hotel off the itinerary list. The attitude was indifferent at best. The place is I adequately staffed to provide a minimum level of service. It was a terrible experience.

Thank you for your visit at our hotel and for taking the time to write us a review. Please accept our sincerest apologies for any inconvenience and dissatisfaction these aspects have caused you.

We will inform better about this for our guests, I’m sorry you didn’t get this information from the reception. I will share this review with our team to improve our service.
