Location is very good, you can easily walk to old town.

Room was a standard with double bed. Bed is good, not too soft. Everything was clean and in good shape. Room was a bit hot, thanks to the warm afternoon sun. Luckily you can open the window.

Breakfast is good and

WiFi is good and free.

Staff was friendly.

Bad sides:
The cellar restaurant Baieri Kelser has been closed, or rather limited to breakfast serving and prebooked happenings.

There's no bar in the hotel to get a cup of coffee or a beer. You need to go out for that.

The walls are paper or then we got very bad luck with extra noisy neighbors. Door slamming, elephant walking, loud talking until early hours... Actually it was strange that normal talk (not drunken shouting) could be heard through the walls so easily! Next day we bought earplugs, it was worth it.

If you dont want to pay old town prices but location is key. Hotel st Barbara is perfect for you. Just a walk through the subway to freedom square and all the delights of this beautiful old town. Staff are super friendly. Hotel and rooms kept very clean. We had a room on floor 4 at the rear with no noise from traffic or bars. Breakfast was plentyful with a good selection which was replenished all through service. Would deffo stay here again.

Booked our room and paid months in advance. Arrived to find out that they didn’t have a room for us ( apparently they overbooked) and that they had transferred us to another hotel. The secondary hotel
Was not very nice and didn’t have the same facilities as that we had booked and paid for. Unacceptable. Be careful if you book this hotel as there is no guarantee you will end up staying there. They didn’t even contact us in advance to explain the situation. Ruined our visit.

Friendly helpful staff and a great location very close to the Old Town. Two disappointing factors though. Many reviews indicated that if you get the early ferry to Helsinki the Hotel would provide a packed breakfast for you to take with you, they do not do this. We did ask but politely were told this can not be done. Also the downstairs area used for breakfast is also a bar but is not open in the evenings. I dont understand this as it would have been good to relax over a couple of drinks in the bar after a day out but not to be. The rooms were clean and breakfast was good.

Hotel St Barbara is in a fantastic location. Staff are Excellent and very friendly. Cross the road outside via the subway and you are straight into Freedom square and just 100 mtrs straight ahead is the tourist information office.
