Although I had requested a non-smoking room with a queen/king-size bed when I made the reservation, the only room they had available when we arrived with a queen/king-size bed was in a smoking room. My fiancé and I decided to take the smoking room anyway since we figured it should be fine as long as we open the windows or turn on the air conditioner. Lo and behold, the windows did not open and the air conditioner in the room was broken! The hotel did not offer anything to compensate for any it.
Since we were out for most of the time we were in Helsinki, we didn't get a chance to try the breakfast (which was included) and the sauna (which was free).
The location was both a positive and a negative. It's right smack in the city center so it was easy to get around to all the sites, shops, restaurants, and parks. But for the same reason, we were woken up by construction at 8:30 on a Saturday morning.
