This unique hotel combines atmosphere, comfort and good service for the same price. The hotel, which used as a prison in the past, situated number of tram stops from the center of Helsinki (on a clear day can be done either on foot, as long as you don't carry your luggage) in a quite dead end zone. There is a tram stop right outside the hotel (tram number 4).
The staff, wearing stripe tee-shirts, was extremely professional and very courteous. The breakfast, with the polish gray dishes alike in prison (as seen in the movies), was rich and excellent, as it should be in a first class hotel, and the well equipped room (even an iron and an iron board were in it), located on the first floor, was very modern, comfortable and spacious with luxurious large shower room, high ceilings, a small low window, as well as high windows, so that you could not escape...(but don't worry: the bars were removed...).
The internet in the hotel is free, but I didn't succeed using it inside the room (the thick walls maybe...).
I really enjoyed the stay in this unusual hotel.
