The Cumulus Olympia is a 10 min tram trip from the city. There are three trams the pass in front of the hotel which is very convenient and there is an R kiosk on the hotel corner where you can buy a tram ticket. I bought a 6 day card which costs less than four separate day cards. The card works on all public transport including the ferry, well worth it unless you intend to buy a Helsinki card.
I was a little shocked at the size of the room when i got to the hotel. I am not sure if it is the smallest room I have ever stayed in but it must be close to in it. The reception staff were polite but not effusive.
After working out how I was going to fit my luggage and myself into the room I realised that it was fairly basic. Not bar fridge or tea/coffee making was disappointing but considering the room rate i guess not surprising. On the other hand the TV was a modern flat screen, the bed very comfortable and the furnishings quite modern. The room was immaculately clean and in good condition. The bathroom (also small) was very clean and modern.
Breakfast was fairly standard but well done with a good range of options. After a few days i was quite used to the room and was quite happy with it. After all you only spend the evenings inn the room so I guess it didn't need to be spacious. The free WiFi also worked well.
Considering that the get is 30-50 Euro cheaper than a lot of other hotels it was very good value for money. If on a budget then this is a good option.
