Location to Länsisatama harbour quite convenient, I got there by tram. Got a restful sleep before weekend trip to Tallinna, I felt exhausted after a long bus journey to Helsinki. Not a luxury hotel, but the atmosphere is nice. The room was a little bit chilly, altough it was not a very cold weather outside.

The venue is not so far from the town Centre, one can actually walk. It's closer to trump stations and absolutely peaceful. I like the view from my bedroom. Very vintage European buildings. Food was great and customer service absolutely excellent.

It's a very good hotel to stay when travelling to Helsinki with great location and nice suroundings. It's, however, a bit difficult with finding the parking lot (due to the "oneway streets" in the centre of Helsinki.
