I suppose for people coming for the fair the location is perfect, for common tourists it might be a little bit too far away from the main attractions; still with great public transportation connections. The staff was friendly and helpful (coming as business guest you don't have to pay city/tourist tax). The room and the bathroom were spacious and very clean, do not expect a great window view thou. I like the beds and linen. The sport and sauna area was quite nice, although the finnish saunas were turned off.
Do not go to their bar. One has to wait for ages for the drinks and they must used so pre-made mixtures to mix the drinks. Never ever. Or perhaps we should have a beer?
The absolute highlight was the breakfast. Nicely decorated breakfast room, great variety of tasty food, delicious omelette, even the coffee wasn't so bad. Everything look very fresh, and I must say it again, the choice of food was very large. The price for the breakfast was rather high but then skip lunch and have late/bigger breakfast here.
I definitely recommend this hotel!
