The hotel has a great location, just a few minutes' walk from the central train station. A couple of tram lines stop in front of the building. The staff is friendly and speaks excellent English. The room had hardwood floors, not carpets, as is typical in Europe. I heard virtually no sounds from other rooms. The bathroom floor was heated. The room safe was not large enough for a small laptop. The room included a minibar. The free wifi was great. I was "upgraded" to a room that had a bigger selection of TV channels, but there weren't as many as in other hotels. For English news there was BBC World and DW, which focuses mostly on Germany. The Finnish channels sometimes have American shows in English; there were also Swedish and French channels. The breakfast buffet was extensive, including scrambled eggs, bacon, sausages, cold cuts, breads, fruit, etc.
