Stayed in hotel for 1 night at start of June. Very nice hotel in centre of Helsinki with lots of restaurants and easy walking distance to harbour and main atraction nearby. Hotel was very glam and staff friendly. Was surprised with hotel as it was a working trip and didn't expect much, however I was given an upgrade to an executive room on 9th floor with balcony over looking city, stunning sitting in balcony taking in the atmosphere.
Hotel in perfection location to explore city and it's lovely attraction.
Ate in Leonardos the Italian directly opposite train station, very nice seafood risotto and cold parsnip mash.
Would recommend this hotel for future visits.
