The Hotel has an enviable position in the city centre; infact it is a crosspiece of the “Aleksanterinkatu” (the main shopping street in Helsinki), near the departmentstore Stockmann, the Kauppatori and the Central Station. In front of the Hotel there are many restaurants (also a Mc Donald’s), shops and the tram stop. The area is very safe and quiet, even if the building in front of our room had a big fan that worked for all the night and so it was a little noisy. I and my husband stayed here for 4 night in August 2010 and we booked a double room on the hotel website; when we arrived at the hotel they gave us a beautiful room at the 8th floor with a great view on the cathedral! We had breakfast in the hotel: the food was good and with a fairly good choice. The room furniture was discreet, bathroom wasn’t too small with bathtube. Moreover the hotel has a free wifi connection for guests, with a different key access every day, and a business room with a computer and a printer. The nearest supermarket is near the centralstation (5 minutes on foot from the hotel), inside the Sokos Vaakuna centre (very good and cheep); an other supermarket is inside the Kamppi center (3 minutes far from Sokos Vaakuna centre).
Finally I really suggest this hotel to stay in Helsinki because of its position, the price (isn’t too expensive) and staff is very friendly.
