Nice and centrally located hotel in Helsinki. Short ealking distance to key stations (railway, bus) and to heart of city center. Quiet due to none high traffic roads next to hotel. Lots of shops 100m from hotel. Excellent breakfast with wide selection. Clean hotel with several elevators. Gym is a plus despite it is small.

The bedroom was ok. Tidy and modern and big enough. The bathroom was tiny. No space for make up stuff and no mirror with the table in the bedroom. The breakfast had a lot of different things but nothing was bulls eye perfect. Even the rolls were yesterdays and bacon too salty and dry.

Stayed here earlier this month with my grown daughter and son. First thing we noticed was the sign near the faucet saying that Helsinki's tap water is the "best water in the world." And, it definitely was. In fact, so much so that we continued to compare water in Stockholm, Oslo, Flam and Bergen to it - none compared. Terrific sauna and pool in basement. One of the best of our entire Scandinavian trip. The only shortcoming I would say is that slightly elevated bathtub, which was very slippery. I was terrified I was going to slip and fall every time I got in. Took to showering down by the sauna to avoid that. Oh and the sauna is gender specific - since it is off of the women's and men's changing room. The pool is co-ed however. The breakfast room is insanely large with a huge assortment of food. Very tempting to break your diet with so many yummy choices. The hotel staff was very accommodating and helpful from arrival through departure. The restaurant is sort of so so. Had a delicious fish soup, but nothing else remarkable and somewhat disappointing. And pricey. We found other restaurants in the area at considerably better prices. I would definitely stay again and recommend it for either business or pleasure. There were plenty of families there, as well as working people.

We really liked this hotel. The lobby was nice and calm, the room spacious and in - and check-out went smoothly and everyone was really friendly. One thing I didn't know about myself is how much I appreciate hotels with many and fast elevators, until I stayed here and. I really loved the many and fast elevators :D But the best part was the pool. So nice to swim after walking around for a whole day.

Location really nice near the subway and malls. Overall the service was good. Couple of points for criticism relate to key card functionality, had to ask three times to make them work. They fixed fast and helpfully. The rooms were nice but some areas could have been cleaned better (like under the bed). Bit of dusty here and there... All in all, nice and good place to stay right in the centre of Helsinki.

Brighton, United Kingdom34 contributions40 helpful votes
Long queue to check in. Insufficient reception staff throughout our stay meant constantly queuing to speak to staff. Rooms and public areas are refurbished so pleasant. Housekeeping missed cleaning our room so we had to queue at reception again to request it. It took over an hour for dinner to be served in the bistro after ordering burgers and a prawn pasta. The prawns were rubbery and the pasta dry. After complaining we were compensated with free desserts and a discount. Saunas and pool are closed between 10am and 5pm so forget about enjoying a relaxing dip after breakfast while the hotel is quieter. The hotel is clearly struggling with insufficient or inexperienced staff which is impacting on the guest experience. We would not go back.

Nice hotel with a central location. Check-in is 15.00 hrs Sharp. They do not even check if our room is avalible if you arrive earlier. Nice fresh room with comfy beds. In house restaurant open for lunch and dinner (just had a light lunch which was nice, very friendly staff). When checking in you have to choose a time for breakfast, and get a small coupong that states your breakfast time. Even if this coupong is checked when entering the breakfast, it was absolutely crowded! Hard to find a free table and had to que for everything. That said, the breakfast was nice! Will we stay here again? Maybe…

Dear Smalgangen, Thank you so much for your review. I am glad to hear that overall your stay with us went well. The normal check in time is at 15.00 and in case the hotel has been full the previous night we are unable to check our guests in earlier than that. I am glad that the room was to your liking and you enjoyed our breakfast. I apologize for the crowded breakfast area, we are doing our best to improve our system. Hopefully you will visit us again soon. Have a great day! Kind regards, Filloreta/Front desk
