Accra, Ghana
Reviewed 1 November 2016

The venue is not so far from the town Centre, one can actually walk. It's closer to trump stations and absolutely peaceful. I like the view from my bedroom. Very vintage European buildings. Food was great and customer service absolutely excellent.

It's a very good hotel to stay when travelling to Helsinki with great location and nice suroundings. It's, however, a bit difficult with finding the parking lot (due to the "oneway streets" in the centre of Helsinki.

Hotel is located at an acceptable distance to the sights of Helsinki.
