Stayed here for one night last summer after hearing all the hype about this new and modern-style hotel in the heart of Helsinki. Our room was only a standard, but it was very spacious, with a big bathroom and walk-in shower, a little 'living room' area with a settee, television and coffee table, plus then the 'bedroom' with one of the biggest and comfiest beds I have slept in!
With regards to the location, it couldn't get any better being right along of one of Helsinki's busiest streets, with lots of nice bars, shops and restaurants very close by. We also enjoyed the complimentary tea and Fazer hot chocolate provided in the room while winding down after a busy day out and about town. The breakfast is a buffet-style continental breakfast, which we found was pretty average but the breakfast room was rather nice to sit around in and enjoy some people-watching if you manage to get a spot by the window (and assuming you manage to get out of those super-comfy beds with enough time before check-out as well!)
The only downside was that there wasn't much of a view from our room window, which was facing the walls and windows of the rest of the hotel building... So we kept our blinds closed in the room which didn't matter too much seeing as we only stayed for the one night, but might have gotten a bit claustrophobic had we stayed for longer... The sauna/spa was also not included in the price but cost extra, which was a slight disappointment.
Overall however, have to say that we were impressed, especially with it being only a four-star hotel, it lived up to our expectations and was comparable, if not even nicer to many 5-star hotels! Definitely one to be recommended for anyone planning a visit to Helsinki.
