The place is a beautiful building and has a lot of potential of being one of Helsinki's nicest hotels.
Unfortunately the service at the reception is average (3 star hotels can be better).
The worst was the room, for the price asked, we checked into a room that although clean, was in poor condition. The comforter was ripped off, the carpet old, even a lamp was oddly standing on the corner, as if a drunken person had pushed it to the ground and tried repairing it.
I was disappointed to say the least.

Room Tip: make sure you get a newer room if this exists...!

Set in a beautiful castle like building with a huge wooden door this hotel definitely looks the part.
The rooms are the complete opposite, super modern with a well done out bathroom and great shower.
The staff were very friendly and gave good advice and location was great.
They also offer free umbrellas. A must in Helsinki we discovered!

Very good hotel in a very convenient city centre location. Easy to find and close to many restaurants and attractions.
Room on the smaller side but was very comfortable (lovely bed!!), quiet and clean. Staff were very friendly and helpful. Breakfast was excellent, lots of choice.
Sauna was extra cost but a nice relaxing way to complete our stay.

This hotel has a lovely reception area and the staff were very helpful. It is within easy walking distance to the center and you have no need of a taxi to get around as there are plenty of nice restaurants and bars in the center. The rooms we stayed in are in the next building and were a little too uniform for my liking, all black and chrome and it was hard to see in the bathroom the light did not seem to turn up far enough. Not a very nice view either but the same is true for a lot of city hotels. The bed was very comfortable though and as we only stayed one night I was not too bothered about anything else. If you go to Helsinki take a trip to Tallinn... well worth it.

Good room, clean and modern. Good wifi, though you have to re-log in every 24 hours. Lots of choice at breakfast, though if you're picky about eggs, don't eat the scrambled ones. They're the powdered hotel scrambled ones. Hard boiled are available on the other table.

Showers face into the room with tinted glass. Head and feet are visible but not so much the rest of the body. Fine for couples, though friends might find it a little more uncomfortable.
