        Nice people + nice hotel + nice city = 5stars

        • Average rating
      • Single

        Quiet, yet close to the city centre, the room was very clean, the hotel staff were very friendly with excellent English.

        Somewhat inconvenient shower stall. When asked about nearby eateries, hotel staff searched the Internet rather than providing tips on good places.

        elevator is the best! and very interesting retro variant radio and big mirrow/ It made very romantic atmosphere)

      • Family with children

        Friendly staff who all spoke excellent English. Helpful with all the questions I had, and were knowledgable of the Helsinki area. Really enjoyed the breakfast buffet, and the couple of meals we had in the restaurant. Great location for the city centre - easy to walk or take the tram without the bustle (or possible noise) of the city centre.

      • Couple

        Cosy room, high speed internet access, the tram is just 50 m across tne hotel entrance

        A little bit old fashion building facade and not rennovated reception hall

        • Average rating
      • Couple

        It is conveniently situated and has all necessary amenities.

        We booked a double room through Booked.net. However, on arrival it turned out that there were no double rooms left and we were offered a twin room and drink vouchers. The bathroom, although appeared clean, smelt really bad.

        • Average rating
      • Couple

        Good: staff, meal (breakfast), rooms, location (but you have to walk about 15 minutes to the center).

        I didn't like the bathroom. When you are getting a shower the water falls down on the floor and spreads about the whole bathroom, so there's always a lot of water.

      • Family with children

        Great location (in the design district with lots of great restaurants around and unique shops), friendly staff, good breakfast - great with our little 6 month old!

        The room was a bit small for us however we did have a cot and stroller taking up much space.

      • Group of friends

        Very good and comfortable room. Very good breakfast. Good location for those who are coming for shopping!

        Just lifts which work strangely (from room key). We were 4 standing in the lift from different rooms and nowbodies key was working! After 5 min. Something happened and it started to move))

      • Older travelers

        We stayed just for one night and have nothing to complain about: our room was clean and quiet, the girl at the reception was very polite and helpful, we were satisfied with breakfast and we like the location of the hotel as well.

        Friendly and cheerful staff eager to please. Nice, quiet hotel in a good downtown location. Easy walking distance to shopping, restaurants, galleries & museums. Free WiFi internet access in room (requires own computer) This hotel merits 3½ stars - not quite 4

        No one available to assist with luggage. Local calls expensive. Minimal amenities in bathroom .

        Very nice hotel - location ok, food good! On the day of my departure I asked if I could stay 3 hours longer than the official check out time 12 pm and they told me generously that they can offer me to stay longer charging me 10 euro/hour. I am used to stay in very nice hotels with friendly service, but that never happened to me ....
