“Nice sea & forest but old hotel”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed May 28, 2013

If you are looking for the quite place in the nature but near the big city, this could be a place for you in case you close your nose for the smell (like in the hospital). Hotel is located in an old and long time ago renovated building. It seems that this place is built in the 70ties last century. Clean but you still see that old think even cleaned look worn out.
Otherwise - the sea and forest air is wonderful.
The breakfast was good.
Conclusion - typical old style 3* hotel that is well kept.

Room Tip: The hotel is located in several buildings. In building 5 there is no air conditioning. It could be t...

I spent 2 days there for a business meeting. Clean, quiet, excellent food!!!
I walked around a bit in my free time: everything is green, very nice... in the middle of no-where (no people, no cars, just few houses but no lights or people around)! Perfect if you want to relax and have some sauna (amazing! it's just by the sea, so ideally you can jump into the water when your body is too warm, and then run into the sauna again - before to freeze).

Its not close to the city center but that was counter balanced by the very nice view from our room on the Baltic sea (100 meter distance to shore, room was in house VI).
Also, the breakfast buffet was very good and plenty. All rooms have cable based internet.
What should be improved: some WI-FI repeaters would be good - wouldnt cost much.

Was here for a 3 day workshop. The hotel was built in the 60's for a bank training campus, so it is not a new hotel!

Rooms are basic, but very comfortable, clean and warm, and I got one of the best ever nights sleep whilst there.

My room wasn't serviced during the day and I'm not sure why.

Food is good and faculties are great for a conference.

Surroundings are very pretty and I'm sure there is lots to do in the woods and on the sea, when the snow disappears and the ice melts!!

Dear All, I woukd like to say a lot of thanks you for this site, honestly, I have chosen the right hotel and booked it for 10 minutes. Before that, I was looking for a suitable option on other sites, but found nothing. Your site really helped me, because I tried to found something a litle bit late - before 2 days till my trip to Finland, nevertheless I have found that I need. Since I first armored something via the internet and also paid in the first, I was a little scary. After booking I immediately called to the hotelf and checked whether the room booked in my name or not. Hotel employee kindly informed this information. Once more, thank YOU.

We visited this hotel for a weekend in February. I did not have a car and walked from the metro. It is about a 20 minute metro ride and then a 30 minute walk. From the metro to the hotel is all residential. There is one market and a pizza restaurant. The hotel itself is very nice. It is geared towards business with lots of conference rooms. My room was nice, clean, and quiet. There were hardly any other people in the hotel. There is free internet, laundry room, sauna, and breakfast. The breakfast was good with lots of options, but it is the same everyday. This hotel is a good place to stay, especially since it was half the price of any other hotel at the time I booked, but do keep in mind it is a little out of the way.
