“Ordinary hotel with a good location”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 18, 2013

This hotel is normal. No better and no worse than similar. The well-known hotel chain with a good level of comfort. Room of sufficient size, plumbing, bed linen without comment. Wireless Internet works. Breakfast is good. The biggest plus of the hotel is its location: the railway station, bus station, subway at a distance of 3-5 minutes of slow walking

Stayed there in August and room was average size, from outside, the Hotel looks grand and lobby was good however as you go up to the floors, it looked like a 2 star hotel. Their outside atrium looked like an abandoned lot. Location was good in the middle of city and near local trams. Helsinki is expensive city , more modern and commercialized. We were hoping to find a Finnish Restaurant nearby but we didn't find any, ended up eating in Chinese restaurant. Breakfast and front desk people were good. Their swimming pool water was cold.

Was a decent place to stay in, no complaints however the bed wasn't very comfy!

I shared a room, it's big enough for two, and what was nice is that there was a sofa, large enough with spare pillows & a duvet (we were on a festival package deal)!

Breakfast was normal, nice. Only annoying thing was that breakfast finished at 10:30am, fine, but the staff pretty much took the food away from you at that exact time, so get there early!

There's a small pool to enjoy and a sauna however they're only open at certain times.

Free wifi was very handy :-)

The hotel is dated and needs significant upgrades. The rooms remind me of youth hostel basics. This is not a place where you can relax in your room at the end of a long work day. Helsinki has other options for the same money.

The hotel has got most thing you need but is very tired and could do with an update.
Rooms very Spartan and bleak.
Entrance and lobby very dated.
Overall a bit soviet.

Very clean though. If you just want a bed for the night and get a good rate then it's worth it. But not at the standard room rates. Better options in Helsinki for the money.

Stayed here in September for 3 nights.
First room was suffering from the traffic and the garbage-men, so we asked for an 'inside' room, no real view, but overlooking the inner court, which was nice and quiet.
Although the room was ok, the bathroom needs upgrading, it was too small as well.
Pricing: a bit high, but this is Helsinki.
Breakfast is included, but too busy, coffee too strong.

Room Tip: Overlooking inner court, quiet
