This was a newly built hotel near the Espoo highway entrance in western part of Helsinki, just minutes from city centre. You'll need to either have a car or rely on public transport (tram stop 10mins away, takes 10mins to centre, cost around 2 EUR or 6 EUR / full day or 12 EUR / full 3 days) or bus (stop 5mins away, takes less than 5mins to centre, cost 2 EUR / or the above daily pass options) or taxi (10 EUR to city centre, 25-30 EUR to the HEL airport.)
The room we stayed was on the Executive floor which offered free orange juice, chocolate and water from minibar, which was a really nice touch.
Bathroom was filled with towels and should you run out / forgot some supplies they provide them free of charge by calling the front desk.
Found the room to be quite dirty, with stains on floor and used tissues behind the floor lamp and under the bed, plenty of dust in many places, too. Otherwise we had no complaints, as the modern room had great bed and good plasma TV.
There is a mini gym included in the rate but no pool.
When I pointed out the problems during our stay to the front desk, they seemed very keen to fix things immediately, which was good.
