“Nice city hotel”
Reviewed June 14, 2013

Nice hotel in the city center of Helsinki. It was right on the main shopping street. The hotel has nice design rooms, which are small but offer everything. Breakfast was expensive for what was served.

Used to stay in this hotel couple of times before it became part of GLO - hotels.
Gotta say, that the hotel is much nicer now.
Good location, also the service is very good. Rooms are very nice and peaceful.
The building itself is very beautiful and historic outside, but the hotel inside is very modern.
Recommended !

I stayed at the hotel with wife and some friends, in May. The Hotel is very good. Rooms were well equipped but felt they were small. Also the bathrooms were small, but well designed and adequate.

Location :
The Hotel is a good 10 minute walk from the main street / square.

Breakfast was good and served in the Hotel Restaurant.
Overall the service was very good. Would positively recommend staying here.

Only negatives :
i. The Room did not come with a Tea / Coffee kettle
ii. Also it was very tight on space. If you have big bags then, space will be a issue.

Room Tip: Ask for a larger room. Standard Rooms tend to be small.

My wife and I stayed here 2 nights in May. We liked the reviews of the hotel and the pictures and price before we booked and we definitely enjoyed our stay. Unfortunately we did not get to try breakfast as we were up too early. It's about a 15-20min walk from the train station or Esplanade (both easy walks). There are a variety of restaurants nearby. The hotel lobby is pretty cool as well as the outside. We stayed in a double deluxe room in the "newer" building on the right. Room was pretty modern with plenty of space. Bathroom was pretty cool with a see through-ish glass in the shower. Only issue is the water really runs all over the bathroom. I know it's Europe and so that's often the case but this was particularly crazy. The room and beds were comfy, staff were very helpful. Would recommend.

A nice hotel with an interesting and different décor. Room comes with electric beds, flat screen TV and an unusually frosted glass panel bathroom. You should be aware that this means there is not much privacy as you can partially see through this glass.

It's a 5 minute walk from the main square, 10 minutes from the port and harbor, 20 minutes walk to the beach. One thing to know though is that there small room is exactly that!

Breakfast is good here. Comes with Crossiants, pain au chocolate, porridge, cold meats and cheeses, fruits, pickled fish, lots of berry jams and some really nice breads.

The staff is very friendly and helpful, the rooms are very nicely furnished and the
location of the hotel is perfect. Places of interest are nearby - walking distance. We enjoyed our stay in this beautiful hotel.

The idea of staying in a converted castle sounded awesome to me. The rooms are all updated with modern touches.

This was one of the most comfortable beds I've ever slept in. Best sleep ever.

Our rate also included breakfast. I'm glad it did because I probably wouldn't have paid for it otherwise.

Location was great. Down the street there is a little pizza place (which was connected to a youth hostel so they spoke English). Also near there on the corner was a small grocery store.

Overall if I were in Helsinki again I would stay here.
