“Excellent location”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 13, 2014

We were very pleased with this hotel its very centrally located. We asked for a quiet room and got one very spacious quiet room. The receptionist was very nice and even provided us with fans as the room had no windows . The room had a large double bed and plenty of space. The shower room was beautifully fitted out. All very clean and coffee and tea making facilities out on the comfortable landing, Altogether an enjoyable experience. Breakfast was plentiful and good as well

We spent two nights. It was our third time in this hotel. Location is great. Busy street but for us it wasn't a problem. Nice room, very clean, comfortable beds. No AC but there is info on site about it. Good breakfast. There is a cafe on the first flow (ground flow in other countries) . Very good and useful staff. Thank you, BW Carlton!

The hotel is in the convenient place and have friendly and helpful staff. Breakfast were good and rooms were clean. It is in the walking distance to central train station and main trams pass by in front of the hotel.

Frankly, this hotel (room) is the absolute pits. First time I've stayed in a hotel that has no window, therefore no daylight, is VERY hot and has no airco. Sorry, for 125 EUR a night this is unacceptable.

Room Tip: Avoid room 201 like the plague... Not sure about some of the other rooms though I do know some face...

This hotel is located in the city center in a great spot in the city.
However taking into account the price per night and the service provided this is not the best choice in town...
Breakfast is small and some products are from the previous day ... if you combine that to the fact that the breakfast is until 930 it does provide a good experience.
The rooms are tiny and clean, good internet connection and the bed is ok ... but not something were you would like to spend more then a couple of days

It is placed next to the railway station, so it's easy to reach from the airport too. The rooms are not so large but very pretty, especially the bathroom. Nice the ground floor where the reception, the bar (with some spanish feature) and the restaurant (good breakfast) are all together in a unique space. It give it a young-looking aspect. There is silent during the night, even if you have the room in front of the road. Only problem: there is no elevator but the stairways are short. Good service. Ideal for a starting point to visit Helsinki.
