“Eccentric, great value & location”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2005

Location, location, location and good value are the best elements of this quirky little hotel. We were able to stay four (2 adults, two teens) in a room. The room was quite spacious, decorated dormitory style (single beds) with mismatched beds, towels and sheets. It had a huge window overlooking a quiet street. The full bath & shower was a tiny closet with a curtain separating the shower. With a sense of adventure (and humor) it was fun, funny and actually comfortable.
The staff was very helpful and friendly (called a car to the airport, held our luggage when we went for 4 day trip to St. Petersburg, Russia, found my husband an emergency dentist, recommended Stockmann's for all our snacking needs). True the room was not the cleanest but the cleaning staff was sweet and friendly and gave us extra towels and pillows. The standard is not to change the sheets or towels daily.
Theh hotel was perfectly situated for everything from the rail station, bus station, Stockmann's, great restaurants, and shopping.

Hello,

Thank you for the review.

We have upped the standards with the beddings and towels a lot since your stay. Customers staying for more then one night can now easily choose how often their bedding and towels are changed.

Also our cleaning personnel has completely changed since your stay. They are still sweet and helpful, but now the rooms also are spotless.

Best Regards,

Tio

Location is extremely central - you can walk anywhere, but rooms are on the small side (extremely small...), and not very clean (beer bottle caps under the bed, nasty looking bedcovers...). They could do with a little clean-up.

Very friendly owner, and good value. The room was quite large, and comfortable, but had an eccentric, though useable bathroom. Some rooms are not en suite, so are even cheaper. It is very central, near Stockman's Department store. Would use again.

This is a perfectly acceptable, cheap hotel and the location is really good: it's just metres from the main street and very close to galleries, shops etc. You take a tiny old-fashioned lift up to the sixth floor, where the reception and most of the rooms are. Rooms are spacious and adequate, though kind of grungy and brown - it's almost charming. Our room had a bathroom with a wonderful brown half-bath - it was half the length of a regular tub but deeper, with a little seat in it.

There's no restaurant, but they'll serve breakfast in break for €6. On a Sunday this is a good idea, because nothing in Helsinki seem to open before eleven on Sundays, so you won't find breakfast anywhere else.

If you get a room on the sixth floor on the same side of the hall as the reception, you can use nextdoor's open wireless network if you put your computer in the windowsill. Or you could in August 2004.

And the bar downstairs was really awesome on Saturday night. Very strange Finns. It was kind of dull other nights, so maybe this was a special Saturday thing.

Hello,

Thank you for the review.

A lot of things have changed since your visit :)

We do have the whole hotel covered with a free high-speed WiFi-connection, so no need for any balancing on the windowsill anymore.

We are also building a breakfast area to the hotel, where we can also serve some small snacks during the rest of the day. You can still get the breakfasts to the room (after the kitchen is finished) if you like.

Best Regards,

Tio
