“Awesome hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 13, 2012 via mobile

This was a very nice hotel which I highly recommend. 10 minutes walk from the City Centre, this hotel is on a fairly quiet street in the art district of Helsinki. The room had only just been refurbished and was clean, unbelievably quiet (I was at the back of the hotel) with a very comfy bed. Breakfast was a notable highlight with fresh bread and croissants. The staff were also incredibly polite throughout the hotel. Only negative was that it took 5 minutes for hot water to reach my shower.

We stayed at this hotel for 4 nights (26th-30th April), and it's one of the best hotels we've ever been to. The girls at the reception desk and at the breakfast bar are extremely kind and helpful, and speak english very fluently. Our room was very spacious, clean and functional, with a beautiful black-glass shower (situated directly on the room), parquet on the floor, big TV, very comfortable bed. The location is great, 10-15 minutes walk from the centre, on a quiet road (no traffic and noises at night). The breakfast was very rich, including both sweet (croissants, fruit juices, jams, yoghurt, porridge, etc) and savory (cheese, dried beef, salad, etc). We also appreciated the free wi-fi in the room. A sauna is available at the 4th floor of the building, but we didn't have the opportunity to enjoy it (you have to pre-book it and the cost is 18€ per person). The common areas are made in the style of an ancient castle, while the rooms are located in a renewed modern-style wing of the building. To reach the room you have to walk through a corridor, with automatic doors and some others that open with the electronic card provided as room key, but it wasn't a problem for us. In short, we really recommend it, especially for a romantic trip.

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.
