Nice hotel near central train station

We arrived in the middle of the night and the staff was very understanding and helpful. The location was perfect to allow us to explore this lovely city on foot and get to and from the airport at odd hours.

Great Location in the City of Helsinki

The staff was very friendly and helpful. The room and hotel were very clean. The daily breakfast buffet had food for everyone. There were omelets made to order, sandwich ingredients, sausages, fresh fruit, yogurt, pickled herring, smoked trout, cereals, etc. The locations made it easy to travel downtown Helsinki with my mother, who was in a wheelchair. The bus and train station is very close and the public transportation system in Helsinki is excellent. There are beautiful jogging trails behind the hotel. The only drawback was that the air conditioning did not work in our room. The room temperature averaged 24-25 degrees celsius. The front desk brought up a fan, but it was still too warm.

We went to Savotta, a restaurant that serves traditional Finnish food. The food was an experience as was the humorous server. If you want to experience traditional dishes, this is a great place. It is a bit pricey.

Great staff

The staff was extremely friendly & helpful. The location was great - right in the heart of Helsinki & close to the bus/train station. The hotel was super clean. The breakfast buffet was outstanding with made to order omelets as well as cultural selections like smoked trout and pickled herring. The beds were very comfortable. We did experience trouble with the air conditioning. It didn't work in the warmer than normal conditions. The front desk did provide us with a fan, but the room was uncomfortably warm to sleep in.

Great for a business stay

This hotel is pretty close to perfect for a business stay. The location is great for getting to/from the airport using the Finnair bus and also for shopping/restaurants. I also liked that Wi-fi and breakfast are included. Pros: good breakfast, location Cons: wi-fi was slow, the room was a bit small (but fine if you are alone)

Wonderful for solo visit

This is a simply wonderful hotel for a solo visit to Helsinki. The location next to the train station is not particularly quaint, but so convenient and easy. For my taste, the room was perfect. The bathroom lighting was beautiful. The towels were thick and the pillows were soft and cushy. There are outlets all over the place in the room. I skyped home from bed. Everything was spotless. The breakfast was huge with something for everyone (including, for me, oatmeal and bananas). I don't know how the room could be so quiet, but I heard no noise from either the street or inside the hotel. One of my all-time favorite hotel experiences.

The hotel was central to everything. We could walk to town or the tram. Many restaurants and bars very close. This was a great choice of hotel!
