First time in Finland

Fairly quiet yet convenient location. Great Scanic buffet. Beware not to leave belongings unattended though, Heard several guests had their bags snatched. Friendly staff. Was waiting for a delayed bag, but unfortunately the person who accepted it didn't know the TV notification system wasn't working, which meant an extra day without my bag. Nice sauna.

Nice hotel, loacted ideally near the city center. Room cleanliness needs a lot to be disired though. Beds were not even properly made up and floors were not cleaned. Breakfast quality was ok, but it was chaotic during that time.

Great Location

This hotel is very conveniently located minutes away from all the happening events in Helsinki. The rooms that face the water are terrific especially if you can get one with wide opening windows. It is one block away from the 4 and 4T light rail line, about two blocks from the presidential palace and the Market Square and is a good value at about $80 to $100 U.S. dollars

Sightseeing tip: Short walk from hotel

Take the ferry to Suomenlinna because at 5 Euro it is a real bargain.

Disappointed

Great location by the water, that is pretty much it for this 4 star hotel. Arrived to find my room has a single bed in it, ok, lets upgrade, paid and find two single beds joined together, lets upgrade again, paid more and got a double bed. As for the interior, the rooms need a proper (as opposed to a cosmetic renovation) renovation, old pretty much everything, I'm talking 1980's furniture etc. The TV was flat screen but remote did not work. No soap in the bathroom dispenser and overall a tired old room and a tired old hotel. I paid a lot of money to stay here and the end result was very disappointing.

Very average

About a 10 min walk into town. My biggest complaint was there wasn't any air conditioning and it made it hard to sleep. They didn't have any porters either,and we had a lot of luggage and were tired. The breakfast that was included was very good. The lobby was comfortable and attractive.
