I have stayed at this hotel a couple of times, and found its location very pleasant: a quiet but central district of Helsinki, next to the Sinebryuhoff art museum (recommended) and about 10 minutes' walk to the main square. Nice interiors, cosy rooms, modern facilities, and comfortable beds. The upgraded rooms have tea and coffee making facilities.
Buffet breakfast is served in the spacious breakfast room, which is actually the hotel restaurant specializing in Italian cuisine.
The only thing I would complain about is the room temperature: the heating system only starts working when a guest moves in, and it takes a couple of hours to warm the room - could be an issue when the outside temperature drops down to minus 20 Celcius, which is not at all uncommon in Finland.
