We would have expected to have nice view and clean room in terms of curtains for example.

The fridge was left closed without the key and the safety box was also closed so... More

Bathroom and tub was not well designed, it was small with funny extra space behind toilet which you couldn't use. Otherwise room was clean, bed good and normal finnish hotel breakfast. Nothing special

My favorite hotel in Helsinki City Centre for business and also for travel with family. Ask big rooms when you are with family. Department store, supermarket, McDonalds in same building. Good parking place.

I opted for standard room but in standard room as well you should have Cattle service. I have not found any cattle in room and upon asking to reception they were saying that it is on chargeable basis and 12 euros per day.

Enjoyed everything from the special arrangements for the early check-in to the flexible late departure on the last day. Friendly and attentive staff, exellent location in the city center and next to the railway station, and also had an amazing room. Will book this for the next Helsinki visit, too.

The hotel is in nice location and it's very easy to get in and out. Also they allowed us to checkin early even thought the room wasn't ready. The room itself was a bit small, but otherwise clean and ok. Breakfest is the also ok.

Basic business trip with Basic needs: all went well. Clean rooms, nice service, good breakfast etc. And the location, of course, is superb. The only negatvie feedback concerns the reception: the receptionists were "multitasking" i.e. simultaneously serving customers both By the desk and by phone which is ocassionally a bit irritating and easily creates a bit of turbulence while chekin-in...
