Recent guest reviews

We had at first sauna at 9th floor to our group and food from your restaurang Memphis. Everything was good there. Rooms were very nice,clean and the beds was comfortable. Breakfast was excellent; something to everyone. Thank you to the hotel and personal.

The hotel is located very practically right in the center of Helsinki. The staff at the front desk is very friendly. As the hotel was full, I got upgraded, which was nice. I got a huge nicely decorated superior room in the upper floor. I had a very peaceful night and slept very well. The only little minuses were that they ran out of dark roasted coffee during the breakfast (however, it was the busiest hour) and that there was a little stain on the tolet table. Otherwise, everything was perfect.

Arrived very late, about midnight. Warm welcome by front of house staff. Was very impressed to find out the next morning that the hotel was slap bang in the middle of everything that I came to see. Senate square, the harbor, train station all within a few minutes walk. Lovely breakfast in a very nice setting.

Stayed there for business purpose. The room was quite dark and the style a bit old fashion. The bathroom demands for refurbishment. Also the elevators are very slow performing. However, the staff was extremely friendly!

Very satisfied of the hotel and its services. The room was very confortable and clean, the staff very kind and helpful. The buffet breakfast is really great too. Excellent location. Totally recommend!

Nice hotel with great service, great location. Everything worked well in sixth floor superior room. We stayed as couple but it was a business trip. I got some flowers and they kindly borrowed me a vase for them during my stay :)

Only minus of otherwise great experience was sound proofing the rooms, a lot of noises from the hallway during night time. Service was perfect, rooms were great aswell as the breakfast. Some random stuff to make 200 characters.

The hotel is located at the centre of Helsinki, short walking distance from the railway station. It is not the most modern hotel in Helsinki, but friendly and clean. Bed was confortable and there were couple piloows to choose from. Room was quiet, and so the sleeping quality was good. Staff is really helpful and friendly. Buffet breakfast has plenty to choose from, hot and cold dishes to start the day well. I have stayed in this hotel several times, and will come back again.

Excellent visit. The only small inconvenience was the parking because we did not arrive to the correct level with the shortest way to the hotel. It should be informed which access should be taken to the parking in order to arrive to the right level.

Overall my experience was very successful but there were a couple of minuses: first of all, the floor drain didn't pull in the shower. Second, there was such a mess under the bed. I'd understand that issues in a motel or someone's home but not in the hotel.
