The Hotel Location is great, and the entrance, lobby and library room are lovely with great architectural features. The front desk staff were extremely helpful and even printed off some searches from the internet for some music clubs and concerts we had asked about. Its a shame that the rooms don't live upto the entrance! Our room was on the 3rd floor and was an OK size but the wooden floor was very scratched and lots of chips in furniture which gave it a slightly shabby feel. there were some nice features like the armchair and footstool, and plenty of storage. The TV had a strange blurry effect so was OK to check the news but you couldn't watch a film. The bathroom was Ok and had a bath and shower, and plenty of space to store things, but it was a bit scruffy and had mould around the bath.. As other people have mentioned there is extensive building work outside so it was very noisy from about 8am, but there was also a loud humming noise from the courtyard at night (from the non existent air conditioniong?) so you had to keep the window shut and it was very warm and stuffy. The breakfast buffet was nice, the usual selection of eggs, cheeses, fruit, lovely rye bread etc, served in the basement which was cosy but some might think a bit dingy. The hotel was fine overall, and a good location although Helsinki is very small so any downtown hotel will be within 15 minutes or so of the station. The rooms would benefit from a lick of varnish and a good polish up, and aircon, and once the hotel is expanded and building work finished it would be a more comfortable place to stay. I would recommend the Fabian a few blocks across, a bit more money but superior rooms
