I arrived from the airport after a short flight from Stockholm and transfer on the excellent new Ring Railway Line. The hotel is only about 200 yards away from the station so obviously I walked taking in the wonderful sights that I have known from nearly 50 years of visiting. The first thing I saw was that there was a...

The building is outdated and unattractive. Long corridors, lots of noisy ppl running there through the night. Would not stay here again. Staff was very nice and efficient, room was clean. Our room was very close to the elevators and they found us another room in the middle of the night when we complained. Good breakfast.

The check in was painless with a cheery smile. All the staff were very friendly and helpful. The rooms were nicely appointed with enough space for three people, although coffee and tea facilities would be a bonus and the housekeeping staff could do with lessons on how to dust, as most of the surfaces were in need of a good...

Stayed here for 1 night with my wife. The rooms are a good size and clean, and the beds are relatively comfortable. The hotel is located within walking distance (2km to 10km) to a lot of the tourist attractions and the breakfast was really good.

I would not rate it like 4-star hotel, but 3-star as maximum. The carpet in the korridor was so much dusty, I tryed do not breath while passing by corridor from lift. It was very noisy from the pub (or club?) downstears, so it was difficult to fall asleap before 3AM. Otherwise, it is a good hotel. A bit expensive...

We stayed in this hotel during our 24 hour stopover in Helsinki. The hotel is very easy to reach from the train station. 10 minutes walking. We choose this hotel because it is close to the Finnair airport bus and it is very convenient to visit the city centre attractions. Staff was very polite and helpful. Breakfast was very good....

The room was very far away from the elevater. But we were happy because we could relax soon. When we enter the room it was not cleaned so we dragged the luggage all through the way back to the front. They changed the room. But the problem happened next day. We couldnt find our passports and we surely thought we...
