The hotel deserves a hurrah for the value they provide. For the price we paid, I was very pleasantly surprised at what we got. The rooms was great; very comfortable with a big bed, had a fantastic entertainment system on the TV, and a good layout in the closet. The bath even had a proper shower (I've never understood that half glass door thing in many European showers). ;-)
The staff were very helpful, if at times a bit reserved. Anything we needed, they were more than ready to get us.
The free bikes on loan were great! We took a two hour ride around the waterfront and loved it.
The restaurant is good too. As we found in all of Finland, food and drink are not a bargain. However, it's was all very good. In fact, the hamburger was one of the best I've had in a while.
The location is just about perfect. It's close to everything you'd need for a visit to Helsinki. We walked most places, and when we needed to go further afield, the tram runs just beside the hotel. Also, if you like chocolate, Karl Fazer is directly across the street!
