The hotel is part of Helsinki's South Harbour old warehouse district, close to a number of ferry terminals, but also in walking distance to the city center. That makes its location pretty unique and interesting. The hotel seems slightly overpriced even for Scandinavian standards, but it is functional and clean, the breakfast (despite of warnings) is scandinavian-like comprehensive and organized, and the good gym is open 24h. Wifi-access is free, but unnecessarily complicated with vouchers, which expire every 24h and TV-coverage is limited to Finnish channels, which is specifically annoying, when you suffer from jet lag.
- Official Description (provided by the hotel):
- The hotel is located in a beautiful warehouse building from the early 1900s, and features plus-sized rooms and modern meeting facilities. The large arched windows and high ceilings create a spacious and bright atmosphere in the restaurant and bar. During the summertime, guests can also enjoy our large terrace. In addition to the hotel's own meeting facilities, the adjacent Marina Congress Center offers settings for events and functions of up to 2,500 people. There is plenty of parking space just outside the hotel and in the garage. The hotel offers WiFi, a gym, a sauna, and a 24-hour shop. You can borrow a bicycle or sticks for Nordic walking from the reception. Close to the Helsinki city centre, the hotel is located by the sea in idyllic Kajanokka next to the Market Square, Uspenski Cathedral, and the Helsinki SkyWheel. The hotel offers an excellent starting point to see the sights, spend some time shopping or enjoy the restaurants and nightlife of the city. ... more less
