The rooms are clean and large in Finnish terms. It is also very quiet in the hotel: no noises from the corridors or from the street can be heard to the room. If you want to have a good night sleep and don't want to pay extra on high end decor and can accept slightly longer walk (1 km) to...

Hotel Albert is nicely located close to downtown at same time being in a quiet area. Arriving to the hotel is like coming back home, friendly personnel giving you warm welcome. Rooms just a bit small, but roomy enough for a few days business trip. Definately coming back to Albert.

The location was good and the price okay considering the generally high prices of hotels in Finland. Breakfast was okay and gluten-free food was also available. We spent two nights in this hotel, and the air conditioning was not working in the first room we got, so the temperature was way too high. First we thought we just didn't understood...

I stayed in this hotel for the first time and was satisfied I chose it. The staff is very helpful. The location of the hotel is good, with a tram stop very near but the city centre in a walking distance as well. The room was comfortable and peaceful. The shower wasn't very spacious nor functional.

I have stayed several times in this hotel wich is nice and quiet. The restaurant is very good. More extensive openning hours for the sauna and more fresh fruits for the breakfast would be appreciated. Sometimes the hairdryers are a bit too old and broken. That is a pity. In spite of that, this hotel is really nice.

We live only 15 kilometers from Helsinki, so this was just for fun. I booked this hotel, because the deal was so good and I did not have very high expectations, but was positively surprised. Room was quite nice looking, the bed was confortable and the view was kind of nice, even it was just the opposite house. But the...

You really can't beat a great hotel breakfast - and the Albert offers one of the best hotel breakfasts I have experienced. Perhaps it's a little unusual to start a hotel review with comments about the breakfast, but this is one of the Albert's real selling points. The restaurant (well used by the public during the day), is not large...
