Good value for money

The breakfast wasa the best of all, assorted everything and good. All carpets in the hotel need more mantainance and cleaning. Some chairs need new tapistry. Staff very friendly but sometimes scarse, they need more staff at reception to lower waiting times.

Everything you need

The location is slightly further from the city centre, but the connections are good. I arrived at the hotel some hours before the check-in time and was pleased to get a room right away. The lounge is nice and spacious with good complimentary wifi, printing and scanning services.

Nice and friendly hotel, not close to the center

The location is close to the cargo harbor, otherwise it is surrounded by a residential area. The center of Helsinki with lots of good restaurants and shopping is a 20 min walk away. There is a tram stop outside the door for a 10 min ride to/from the center. There was a small closet in the room, but no drawer or shelf for smaller things. Our room was facing the backyard, maybe because it was prepaid. The restaurant was OK with a good breakfast, but we preferred the very good ones we found around the center of the town for dinner. Have a nice trip! Bjorn Born in Helsinki

A Very comfortable hotel with first class service

We are a middle aged couple and stayed here for six nights whilst visiting friends and family in Finland. The service was excellent, room was very comfortable and clean. We enjoyed a brilliant fire works display at the roof terrace bar on new year's eve, accompanied by other residents of various ages and nationalities, and felt very welcome. The sauna suite was a little too small for the number of guests that we're using it . The breakfast buffet was, as expected, outstanding.

Very nice place

Room was quite comfortable. Staff was extremely helpful. Location is in a quieter part of town, very relaxing. Tram stop is right outside the front door. Easy to get to anyplace in the city.

Variable

Staff at the reception desk friendly and helpful. Restaurant expensive. One of the restaurant staff (dark haired lady) told lies; said that it was only possible to have 0.5 liter beers although other guests had 0.3 liter. My wife and I wanted small beers and left nearly half of the contents of our glasses when we left. Very high beds. Too high to get onto for disabled persons.

The sink and the TV did not work the entire four days. Location is next to the tram a great plus . The hotel would not give credit to the Hotel loyalty club points since it was booked on internet , very unfair , no where is there such a notation while booking
