Hotel in a great location next door to the train station. Check in for 13 of us was smooth and easy, staff friendly and helpful. We had 7 rooms with no complaints from anyone one in our party. Rooms are large and warm - 6 outside. Breakfast was good with a reasonable choice for gluten free people. Would stay again when in Helsinki

Can’t beat the location of this hotel - it’s right next to the central railway station and plenty of public transport options, plus there are so countless things to see and do within walking distance. The room was clean, well-maintained and comfortable! I’d definitely stay here again in the future.

I've stayed here multiple times, can't beat the location or the price. Not only is the property right next to the train station, it's also in the heart of Helsinki with tons of sightseeing/shopping/restaurants options. Hotel has a friendly staff and quick check-in process. The room is always quiet, a decent size, spotless, and with good in room toiletries. Restaurant has a wide variety of options for breakfast. Will be staying here again for a trip in May 2024!

Had a 3 night stay here. Asked for a high floor overlooking the square when booking and that's what I got (6th floor) Nice view and no noise. Probably the best thing about this hotel as others have stated is its location. Literally right beside the train station. Had an early flight home and had worked out a shorcut into the station by then! Check-in was efficient and staff were friendly. Room (Standard room) was spacious as was the bathroom. Didn't get the room cleaned so can't comment on that - just hung the sign on the door to get the points on my IHG account. Good choice of food for breakfast. Didn't use the restaurant or bar when here. Overall, hotel is clean and modern, good facilities and perfect location. If I'm back in Helsinki would stay here again.

I stayed here to be close to transport with easy access from the airport and I preferred to believe the positive reviews. However, I agree with a previous reviewer that this is no more than a three-star hotel. Pro's Easy access from the airport. Close to public transport. Close to many of the sights and shops. Kettle and small fridge in room (base rooms have a locked fridge???) Rooms are a good size When I complained about the first room they gave me they changed it without question Good blockout curtains. Small gluten free station at breakfast. Staff working the breakfast room were lovely. Cons The hotel needs a serious makeover. Very stained carpets, walls marked. The inner rooms overlook a concrete courtyard and when they first gave me one of these rooms there was dog faeces visible through the windows. The fridge was locked in this room and it was claustrophobic. I was told that this was due to people stealing the alcohol. Note: No lock on the fridge in the second room. The breakfast is not great. I don't understand how other people have said that it is. The Finnish oats were not done well, they were lumpy and tasteless. The eggs were rubbery and dry. However, when I asked for fresh eggs to be cooked, they did so. Had to ask to have my room made up. Had a latte from the bar that was undrinkable. Also, staff should not discuss customers in Finnish when they think no-one is around to understand them. I wish I had more positive things to say but I am afraid that I do not. I doubt that I would stay here again. There are better hotels in this price range.

We arrived by train from Helsinki airport into Central Station. Before I could find the hotel on my Google Map app, there it was, right beside the station complex. Great check-in staff, really helpful, who gave us good advice for sightseeing around town. We stayed here overnight before catching the ferry over to Estonia for a couple of days. The hotel kindly let us leave our suitcases in storage whilst we took just back-packs over on the boat to Tallinn. The rooms were nice and the beds very comfy. With good double glazing, we had a great nights sleep. There was an iron and ironing board in the room along with a kettle and tea and coffee making bits. Breakfast was very pleasant. There were plenty of cabs outside, or if you want the local trams are available from by the station. Good choice of hotel if you want to keep it simple and pleasant.
