Having zipped across the Baltic sea on the seacat I took a leisurely stroll up from the harbour and was at the reception desk in minutes. Helsinki is so beautiful from the water.
I booked the hotel thru a consolidator so got a fabulous suite/executive room for a steal. Stumping up a little more brings a whole load of benefits; full bathroom, full acess to the spa, unlimited wifi, full breakfast buffet, and of course the room itself.
Bed was a joy. Pity I couldn't spend more time in it! The Kamp spa (an unfortunate name) had many different ways to get hot and sweaty in a gorgeous setting. The Turkish bath was especially nice.
Maybe things have changed since I was there but brought back a guest for the night and no problems whatsoever. Even joined me for breakfast. How sociable the Finns are.
Did not try the hotel for dinner as there are so many choices nearby. Lunch on the harbour is a must if you care for fish or reindeer.
And the slippers? Huge padded beauties that are so comfy I glad I took them back home. Go. Do it.
