The hotel is beautiful and pleasant. Staff were quite helpful for general enquiries. Upon the first day of our group arrival, we were required to fill registration cards for the hotel. In a short while, 2 of our colleagues' bags were stolen. Passports and everything was gone. That was the act of a theft gang (couple) roaming around in the hotel lobby. Hotel need to step up on lobby security to identify suspicious persons and also prevent non-hotel guests to be roaming around in the lobby.
Nevertheless, hotel has good control over security for room access. Lift could only be activated with scanning of the room key. Hotel is connected to the shopping mall next door via basement. Hotel is situated in central location within walking distance to the Central Railway Station. One could easily acquire a transit to the airport and other cities. There are many shopping malls nearby. Also walking distance to some major attractions such as the Lutheran Church and even the Uspenski Cathedral and harbour for the Silja and Viking Terminals (if stroll is preferred over bus and tram rides).
Hotel rooms design were minimalistic and clean. We checked in twice throughout our journey. The room for my second check in was very small and cramp.
Breakfast spread was quite good with varieties. Good supply of fruits.
