My daughter is studying architecture in Helsinki for one semester, her University Alto had a class in this hotel to learn the unique architecture design. The interior is very modern and high quality. The breakfast was included in my stay. Its worth the money. Helsinki is expensive, cup of coffee cost around 4 or 5 euros. If you book your room in US travel website, you can add about $15 for two breakfast. Good deal!

Room Tip: If you like to have a bath tub, make sure to request in advance. most rooms are only with showers.

single room for double use, not so sure.
alone with 1 case which get accepted by Ryanair and easyjet will do if you been asked to check this baggage by any of those 2 carrier then take a room single room for family use as your case will take 40% of space.
nicely decorated but lots of unecessarie things such coffee cup and glasses but no mini bar or coffee facilities.
Also plugs on top nor on wall? no desk to work
so pay the extra and get large room, ask at desk.
people very friendly and the deco from entrance vey nice

Room Tip: ask rooms with desk and space for luggage

Got a superior room, its very spacious and the design is very modern and superb! The spa is also very beautiful and used by its customers a lot, which makes it alive, which is nice! The service of the staff is excellent, they are very friendly and nothing is too much to ask. The location is probably the best in Helsinki, close to everything. The downside of this hotel is the restaurant/breakfast area, which is completely different from the whole hotel concept. The ventilation system was noisy, as other reviewers have pointed out before!

Stayed 6 nights in this hotel. Highly recommending. Very clean, very quiet, excellent location. Check out their sauna and a library! Their staff is very friendly, hospitable and knowledgeable. Book with breakfast included, you will not regret. Food and service is just impeccable. Will stay there definitely during my next trip to Finland.

My husband and I stayed at this hotel for 3 nights, over Easter. The hotel is beautiful, especially the Reception area. The staff we dealt with were always helpful, smiling, and very happy to give us advice on the city. Breakfast was plentiful, both savoury and sweet, and I highly recommend you try the strawberry jam: the best I've tasted in a long time! The location of the hotel is great: 10 mins from the centre, away from the tourists and close to some really good book stores and shops.
The room itself was 'compact': I think it would match the size of a a smurf's house. However, the bed was comfortable and the room was very clean.
If there is one thing which was negative about our stay at the hotel was the air con: it was very very noisy and impossible to operate. It would be really good if the hotel installed individual switches on each room, so that one could switch the air con off completely.

I wouldn’t recommend this hotel. The door on the bathroom didn’t close. Who wants to do a no.1 or a no.2 with friends listening and perhaps smelling? Urgh. The new room was smaller and smelled of paint. The shower is see-through. Again who wants that? You might have your privates covered by the greyed out section but you are really on show. Urgh. We each showered when the other person was ‘sleeping’. I’m sure if I’d been travelling with my partner this wouldn’t have bothered me but I would defiantly avoid this hotel if travelling with friends or family. Now there were some good points. The location is good and the breakfast is good (as long as you get down early, they ran out of coffee pods for the fancy coffee machine the morning we were travelling). They even have porridge which I was delighted to see.

Room Tip: I would defiantly avoid this hotel if travelling with friends or family.

This hotel was the best hotel I have ever been to. We spent three nights in April 2012 and absolutely loved everything about the hotel. The staff was very nice and helpful, and everyone spoke flawless English. We stayed in one of the small hotel rooms and were very impressed at the way the room was designed. There really is no need to book a bigger room because the design allows for so much storage space, you probably wouldn't need anything more. The location is about a 10-15 minute walk from the center of town, which was very convenient and also meant that the hotel is far enough away that we couldn't hear any street noise. Little touches really made this a great place to stay, from the kindness of the front desk staff to the "welcome" message that pops up when you turn on your tv for the first time. I could not recommend the hotel highly enough, this is really a top notch place to stay and will help to make your trip to Helsinki wonderful.
