Quiet and comfortable hotel. Easy and safe parking. Very friendly and helpful staff. The breakfast is very complete with surprising details. Charming hotel was equipped with respect for the origin. The location is just 15minutes walk to the city centre.

This old prison have a really nice atmosphere and a very friendly staff. It's situated just a short stroll from the centre of Helsinki. The breakfast is splendid and the prison jard around the hotel creates a calm buffer from the city outside.More

Very comfortable rooms, great buffet breakfasts, close to public transport. The building is solid and quiet, and a few cells have been preserved, so guests can see how it looked as a prison. So glad this building was not torn down!
