We stayed two nights here prior to fly out to start our fortnight in Finland. Clean comfortable and the staff most helpful. The hotel is conveniently located close to the train station and close to the airport bus shuttle and walking distance to many sites.
We had to leave the hotel very early prior to the official start of breakfast so assumed we would be missing out on breakfast. But on checking out the staff member pointed out the light breakfast they provide for early departures - sandwiches, fruit, juice and tea or coffee - if only we'd known the night before we could have had something to drink but as it was we grabbed a sandwich and fruit each and rushed out into a snow storm to catch our shuttle bus to the airport. So a very lovely and considerate thought on the hotel's part to provide this light option for its guests.
