Reading travel books this hotel looked interesting and had a good deal. It is a converted prison built of red brick and looks rather daunting from the outside, although very well kept. Inside the rooms/cells were spacious and comfortable, the staff friendly and helpful and the breakfast ( included) was ample. It was served in the Jailbreak restaurant, where dinner was also available if wanted, and had a variety of cereals, berries and porridge as well as an assortment of cheeses,meats and fruit. Many types of bread were on offer and there was a cook to make us eggs, bacon and omelettes. A five or six minute walk took us to the centre of Helsinki where the summer sun shone and made it an ideal place to walk around the city, take a boat to an island, explore the delightful daily market and generally relax. Many pavement cafes are located on the side streets, by the harbour and in the market. The sun shone for us and we reluctantly made our escape from jail after three days! Highly recommended.
