Thank you for your excellent service during my staying in Helsinki. Service was very good at all circumstances. I even received Superior room for my use instead of original room. Peaceful room according to my wishes. Central location is good asset for this hotel.

The room was great. It was so quiet that I was able to have a great sleep. Loved it. The bed was good, a little sagging on the right side, but being alone, I used both sides and the middle. Being allergic, I appreciated the bedding, pillows and covers.

Hotel reception service was excellent. The room was old but very clean. Rooms should remodel. At breakfast the staff were attentive and friendly despite the fact that the place was very crowded. Value for money excellent.
