Stayed at this hotel for a weekend-trip in mid-may. The hotel is good - and the price even better! - but the location is not as central as you would wish for a short weekend get-away first time you're visiting Helsinki... The walk to the more central parts of the city takes about 15-20 minutes - which may not seem that much - but we found it a bit tiring. (When you walk from the main street you just go straight ahead on "Lönnrotsgatan" - it's easy to find and you just walk right on 'til it stops, there's the hotel - but it's actually a pretty grey and dull neighbourhood, so a better option is to choose the paralell street "Boulevarden", which is a bit more fancy and nicer.) (There are buses/trams as well, but they were under re-construction at the time for our visit.)
The rooms are pretty small, and there is no safe in the room! (Which was quite unexpected at a hotel of this standard.) The service at the check-in/check-out was good though, and the breakfast very good! A large variety of things to choose from - a rich continental buffet with both hot and cold items.
Overall a nice hotel, but I wish the location had been a slight bit better.
