Great value for money

Nice and comfortable hotel near the train station, shops and major Helsinki attractions. You can't beat the location if traveling by train. My room did not have a hot water boiler for tea, and the restaurant had just closed for the night, but a staff member boiled water for me and let me take the pot to my room. I was under the weather with a sore throat so I really appreciated this!

Always great

I ALWAYS stay at this hotel in Helsinki because of the great location next to the main rial station and the bus station. The staff is always helpful and very friendly and goes out of their way to serve my every need. The breakfast buffet daily on the 10th floor is filling if not as excellent as it once was but it still beat most US hotels. Having an internet station in the lobby and WiFi in the rooms is a most welcome addition. I just love the place.

Excellent Accomodation in Helsinki

First time stay at this hotel. Altogether over the past 5 years my wife and I have stayed at 6 different hotels in Helsinki, and would rate this now as our favorite in the upper price ones. Our room was spotless, a large double, with windows overlooking the main boulevard--really quite spectacular. The breakfast room is on a top floor with lots of windows, so very pleasant. We enjoy walking, and the hotel is very well located for exploring Helsinki by foot or trolley.

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Within short walks of the hotel are great cultural and historic landmarks. Helsinki is a very walkable city, and this hotel is located perfectly for such excursions.
