This hotel is centrally located in an area filled with restaurants and shops close the railway station. The exterior of the building and the views of the inner courtyard are not the best but the rooms are clean and bed comfortable. I was in group and we ate both nights at the hotel, the standard of food was very good...

Nothing special, the corridor at 8th floor could use a new mat as it certainly smells a bit. Room was clean and the air condition worked well and the smell from the corridor stayed in the corridor. Breakfast was good.

Absolute central and good location with good connections to local transports. Otherwise basic standard level hotel. Rooms OK, maybe a bit old fashion style. Good breakfast even though very crowds during weekends.

The fact that this survey is only in English shows a rather modest and limeted world view, especially in Finland where Finnish and Swedish are official languages. The English only policy is not for today when cultural, including linquistic, plurality is valued.

Generally OK but bathroom (shower place) was to small. Room was on 8th floor. Localization of the hotel is perfect. Close to the harbour, city center and tube station. Technical equipment in the room was good enough, however I could not find the kettle.
