I booked a superior room just so we could have tea-coffee making facilities but did expect a little more for our money than a small, though clean, room in a brand new hotel. There was absolutely nothing extra to recommend it from a standard room in other hotel chains.
Our room was on the 8th floor and the view was over flat rooftops, again nothing extra. The insulation was good as the railway line was very close but we heard nothing from it at all.
Breakfast was again not up to the usual high standard in Finnish hotels and the breakfast room was too small for the number of guests. We had to share our breakfast table with 3 other people which was not ideal as we could not chit chat and relax as we would normally do and that was the whole point of taking a weekend city break.
The area ouside the hotel was nothing special at all and is clearly unfinished. It could be quite a dangerous place for elderly people to walk as there are broken paving stones and a lot of mud etc....
When we asked the hotel to book us a dinner in a very good restaurant for 19.00 they did so whilst we waited. When we wwent to order a taxi at 16.40 we were informed that the booking was made for 21.00!! It was only when I expressed my absolute dismay that I was dressed and ready to go that they phoned and got a table for 19.00.
Not the most superior of services.
