                          • Nice view from windows and central station. Great all round hotel, liked the period features such as furniture and interior design, modern art museum. Good relation of staff, clean room and dinner in the Restaurant on the top floor was delicious and service was friendly and efficient. Breakfast buffet was excellent.

                            The bed was creaky and the matress not very comfortable, the elevator was ridiculously small. The glasses for the juices were all scratched and looked awful.

                          • The location is very good and the Hotel is located next to station and there is super store at basement. The lobby has a large seating area and ladies at the reception desk are very friendly. Rooms are spacious and clean, the restaurant on the top floor is wonderful.

                            Connection breaks every 5 minutes and is extremely slow, the elevator is too small. The breakfast can be better.

                          • The city view is perfect and this friedly attitude to the tourists travelling by Allegro train is really remarkable. Hotel decor is pleasant and s location in the centre of Helsinki could not be better, just walk out of the lobby. The staff is very friendly and the rooms are comfortable and many have balconies.

                            Not great value, as faced the railway station, , was a bit noisy and the bed was a bit ancient. The elevators were extremely small, mini bar was broken and sanndwiches for early breakfast were not fresh/ audibility in rooom.

                          • The location is great and the train station is right in front. The hotel is excellent and price is average for central Helsinki. The lobby is a classic of this genre and unforgettable, the staff are very kind. Rooms are large and clean, nice restaurant on the top floor.

                            The old decor that has been preserved in the premises makes the difference, i appreciate.

                            In my opinion, the hotel need some refurbishment and looks outdated.

                          • Perfect location, just between the main railway station and the bus station, its atmosphere and the helpful staff. Excellent service, very wide window and especially at the great breakfast buffet. Very nice seafood risotto.

                            The rooms were quite small and the hotel was not appealing from the outside.

                            Rooms a bit dull and just all over soap. Not all the dishes at the buffet were clean.

                            Panoramic restaurant on the roof top was closed on sunday evening.
