Don't let the medieval looks deceive you, this is one of the best hotels I've stayed at in the Nordics.
The entrance and the lobby bar is ok, the Tom Dixon lights in the monastery like decoration look a bit out of place but the atmosphere was great and we enjoyed a nightcap in comfy sofas each night.
Breakfast buffet was great, not amazing varieties but far than enough and everything tasted great. Good bread, good cereals, good juices etc.
And now to the best part, the rooms.
I stayed in a newer part of the hotel in the back.
The rooms are just perfect, pretty small but perfect for a business trip, maybe on the smaller side for a romantic weekend.
Really quiet, clean and cozy. The beds and the pillows are some of the best I've had in my trips, I think I have never had such a good nights sleep. I really enjoyed the small work table in the corner, managed to do a lot of job there between meetings.
No broadband and damaged iron board are my only complaints.
The location is another small issue, no problem if you are on business but a bit far from the central on foot. Still lots of restaurants and bars in the neighborhood.
For a more central location I recommend Glo Kluuvi.
I highly recommend this hotel!
