Stayed here for one night as my usual choice of hotel in Helsinki (Crowne Plaza) was full. The location of this hotel is great, very central with good access to shops and restaurants. Friendly and efficient check-in staff upon arrival. Room was a good size double (although like many Scandinavian hotels...a double bed actually seems to be two individual beds next to each other or with separate duvets. Rooms look very recently refurbished and had high quality furnishings and other nice touches such as Tivoli Audio HiFi units to plug ipods etc into. What is quite different (and seems to divide opinion amongst guests here) are the bathrooms...my bathroom was essentially like a glass cube in one corner of the room...the glass is smoked and has large sliding glass doors that slide together to form part of the walls...they don't fully close however, so depending upon your comfort level at such an arrangement, it may not be the greatest of hotels to stay at with your partner!
Other than that, there is little to criticise this hotel about. I only tried room service as far as food goes, and it was expensive (this is Finland after all) but very nicely prepared and presented. The hotel seems to be in the middle of a refurbishment at the moment, so my room was obviously one that had been refurbished. The area between the lifts and the corridors was a little low rent but otherwise this is a great hotel in a great location, as long as the bathrooms don't put you off!
