Stayed 3 nights in this hotel, and were very satisfied with the property. Got std. room for 2 adults and they gave us an add'l bed for our kid (age 7) free of charge. Excellent breakfast (included), sauna, gym, bar with live music after 7 p.m. Car parking on the street right in front of the hotel- 15 euros per... More

The hotel met my expectations but didn't offer anything extra. The gym would for example need a facelift. Still, the staff was nice, the location was good and the internet connection was good. I also liked the possibility to connect hdmi-cables in the room.

Friendly staff, room clean, but basic and super-dark due to a column in front of small window, the family room had a not so comfortable sleeper couch for the kid, breakfast crowded, but fast staff to manage the mass. The missleading hotel picture suggests a seaside hotel, but in fact sea view is almost completely obstructed for almost all rooms.... More

We were staying in Helsinki for 2 nights before travelling to eastern Finland. Our travel company booked this hotel for us - something we don't normally do, but we took the view that for 2 nights it wouldn't matter if it wasn't to our normal requirements. How glad we were that we took their recommendation! Due to flights we arrived... More

The hotel was clean, quite & the staff was extremely friendly. The breakfast buffet had many selections & the food was outstanding. We were only a short walk to the open air market & many excellent shops. The city is fairly flat so we walked a lot, but there are buses, street cars, & a subway system if you'd rather... More

Very nice hotel, excellent location, rooms space and clean. A little rush at breakfast, too many people eating the same time, kind of running out of food. The stuff still makes its best. Sauna is available in the evening.

Room was nice, clean, quiet and fairly roomy, considering we squeezed 4 people into 1 room. Location is great - as we arrived to Katajanokka terminal via ferry, and left with another by Olympia terminal, we could walk to both. Downtown Helsinki is within 10 minute walk or so. Good breakfast, free wifi (I didn't get a chance to look... More

This hotel is located near the tourist harbor with ferries and outdoor markets. Hotel is quiet and clean with a pleasant staff. The breakfast has a fine collection of choices. The restaurant offers a regular menu plus a nightly buffet at a reasonable price for this city.
