We arrived after a 12 hour flight and because it was just after 7am we assumed we would have to leave our bags in storage and check in later on in the afternoon, but were given a room straight away which was a huge relief.
The hotel dating from the 1920s has real character and is so much nicer than the plastic "chain hotel" experience.
Room was comfortable and nicely furnished
Breakfast was superb - good variety and high quality healthy food
Hotel location is central, when we arrived we walked to hotel from central railway location where the Finnair airport bus dropped us off. We also walked from hotel to port (for a day trip to Tallin). Stockmanns dept store is nearby as well as Forum shopping centre which has a lot of chain stores and heaps of other shops.
We had dinner in the hotel restaurant as well and it was very high quality.
The rooftop bar in the tower section of the hotel is a memorable experience also
Would definitely stay here again if in Helsinki
