A short Helsinki stay

A potentially great hotel with a good restaurant, excellent young children's play area and some excellent staff. Close to railway station - 10-15 minutes walk. Lacked attention to detail in room service that I'd expect from this level of hotel - soap dispenser empty, unable to open fridge without getting a key.
