Amenities are pretty basic in the room. No kettle for cofffee/tea. Rooms are of decent size. Very friendly and helpful staff. Very close to shopping centres and one can find good number of restaurants within 5 to 10 minutes of walking distance

Checking in the hotel was fine since the reception was indeed very helpful and pleasant. What was disappointing is the sparsity of the amenities in the room...what is available is shampoo and bath gel at the shower area, hand gel for toilet sink, one pack daily of lotion, big towel and a hand towel only for two, a refrigerator with...

We are staying at this hotel at the moment and everybody is so helpful. From when you arrive at the reception the young ladies go out of the way to being helpful. There is Sauna, massage, and a very good breakfast. Also a complementary safe and free Wi-,Fi.

The hotel is an original from the late Cold War, built for the Moscow Olympics. And it feels like this era, in the interior and furniture. However; the bed was good, everything worked well and - most important - the staff was very nice and helpful.

I've stayed in dozens of hotels in Helsinki and Presidentti ends up in the bottom five together with Vaakuna, Arthur and Cumulus hotels. The insane part is the price level: for the same money you can get so much more comfort, style and service elsewhere. The location is the only nice thing about this place but let me remind you...

The Hotel met most of our hotel needs (for a party of 30) while undergoing renovations (noise, dust, out-dated bathrooms, slow elevators, some spaces unavailable, etc. ). Hotel staff was very accommodating and relocated people promptly when needed. The location is across from the natural history museum and is a short walk to shopping areas.
