I have generally found the hotel very pleasant and convenient. This time the staff were welcoming but sometimes seemed distracted..perhaps overworked. My booked morning alarm call never happened . breakfast rooms service included request for tea.. but amazingly I was brought only herbal tea.. Surely, given the number of Anglos, the kitchen should learn about dark tea!!At dinner the waiter... More

We liked it a lot! Good location and friendly staff. Room was simple but nice. Quiet and nice atmosphere. I warmly recommend! Hyvä sijainti ja ystävällinen henkilökunta. Huoneet siistit ja simppelit. Rauhallinen hotelli vaikka lähellä kulki liikennettä. Suosittelemme!

I stayed here with severe colleagues arriving from different places around the world. All of us remarked that we were not sure we were at a hotel. Much more of an inn than a hotel. Very small elevators. The rooms are average, very clean. The beds are eh... The bathroom was odd, the shower had a small glass door that... More

If you have a stay in Helsinki this hotel will suit you just fine. A taxi from the airport will set you back about 50 Euro. If the hotel books you the special airport taxi for your airport return, for two people it will cost 27 Euro. The front desk staff are very helpful. They will gladly assist you with... More

Hotel has seen it's best days, but is well located and good for short stays. Rooms are small and there is basically room for bed only. Hotel has been renovated but looks like it's from 1970's. Classic in a way....

Personal hotel with friendly staff and cozy atmosphere. Rooms were clean and style was good. Breakfast was okay and gave a good start for a day. The surrounding area is also very nice but not its best in winter. I definitely come back someday.
