“Good venue for business events”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed June 13, 2013

I was there for a business seminar. The room was clean and the services were good but not excellent. No toothpaste or toothbrush provided. The food was quite good but the desserts weren't. The hotel area is good and the whole place is huge so it can be excellent for events but not suitable for personal holidays as it's far from the Helsinki city center.

Came to Gustavelund on a business trip. First of all, this is far from anything resembling the capital, it is in the opposite direction from the already remote airport. Gustavelund is an enormous structure and our group was I think the only guests the first day we spent there so it felt very empty. Conference facilities were OK, nothing special but nothing to complain about either. Staff seemed disinterested, but possibly they were just bored due to the lack of business. Food was not spectacular either, well prepared but very bland and felt heavy and old-fashioned. To get anywhere you had to take long walks through narrow corridors, and up and down stairs, not good if you are disabled or have health problems. I ended up in a room furthest away from the reception and was extremely disappointed as it looked nothing like the nice rooms in the info material. Apparently, only the rooms closest to the reception have been refurbished, I ended up in a cramped 1970s nightmare facing a parking lot. And many of my colleagues complained about having been disturbed by construction workers and/or laundry, which I think could easily have been avoided by booking us into other rooms as the place was empty anyway... 2 more groups arrived the second day we were there but huge Gustavelund still looked empty.

All things considered, this is certainly the most awful hotel I stayed at in the last couple of years. The bathrooms have probably not been renovated since the inauguration of the hotel (seventies?), and the dining room has more of a university canteen than of the dining room of a hotel. But the service beats it all. The restaurant closes at 6pm (if it opens at all after lunch) and the only option which is then left is a kind of Burger 1 1/2 to 2km from the hotel.
On the second day of our stay, they cut the water at 8am (until 12am) without any prior notice, and on the third day, we were waken up by the drilling machines of the workers renovating the rooms opposite to ours.
The personnel at the reception was not particularly friendly either: when one of us did not check out by 12:00 sharp, the receptionist came to his lunch table to tell him that he is already 30 minutes late with his check out and should hurry up (and this with the probability 0 that his room had to be cleaned for an arriving guest).

I stayed in Gustavelund for one night on a business trip. The location is beautiful, but that's about it. The restaurant and breakfast are ok, but nothing special.
For me the biggest problem was the room. The walls were so thin that you could hear everything that was going on in the rooms next to you (even sneezes etc.). There had also been a water damege in the hotel on the previous day, and you could smell it in some corridors.
