Recent guest reviews

I stayed two nichts, because I had no other place to sleep in. I expected nothing, but för a good experience. Breakfast was edelleen, room was qiuet and clean and the view was otettu good, toi. No complaints. Oh yes. It wasn't expensive.

Nice hotel near to the railwaystation. Perfect location. Nice and clean rooms. Breakfast pretty normal. Breakfast at the topfloor with a nice wiev over the city.Satisfied with my visit there. Appreciated being served in my own language swedish.

Next to central railway station in the very heart of Helsinki. Historic building with very modern set-up and nice restaurants. Scandinavian full buffet breakfast with friendly staff, and helpful front desk.

In my first room there were bloodstains and a lot other big stains in the curtains.Really unpleasent.I wanted to change the room and then it was all good.I got upgrated for free.The new room was nice.Nice wiev.

Our room was wonderful (junior suite) and it was very clean, very friendly staff. Good food in Ravintola Loiste. Breakfast is allso very nice. Best of everything is location. You are in the heart of city.

Nice Weekend in helsinki, + Location one of the best in Helsinki + Very Nice view from the rooms and the breakfast area + Superb and friendly service from the reception + large activity area for children in the restaurant - The room was a bit outdatet,

The hotel is pretty much standard. You'll get what you expect and since you only might stay at the hotel for sleeping, then it will be more than enough. Right beside the central station, a 5 min walk from the arrival train tracks from the airport it's an excellent place to stay for a weekend. Quick access! Clean and everything in order (even if one of the saunas right now are out of service). Good breakfast on the top floor with some views over the city. Outdoor seating is possible (weather permitting). Free wi-fi. The small downsides might be that the hotel's design feels a bit old (might be intentional but I don't think so). Registration upon arrival takes some time. They have some sort of membership program that seems to make quick check-in possible, but otherwise, there will be some papers to fill out and it took some time. All-in-all a good place to stay if you just want a good bed and a central location to stay in.

Central, central, central. All the interesting places within walking distance. Nice restaurants, easy parking (though rather costly, but it would be in the center of the city). Highly recommended for an easy stay.

The hotel was good located, but in the night it was pretty much noise from the streets so that was a minus. The breakfast was also good, but it could be more alternatives with chicken, like chicken meatballs and chicken sausages. We got service on swedish on the receptation and that was a big plus. For the price it was good to sum up.

Excellent location for a business traveler who needs a quick access to railway station, metro or bus station. The only minus was the noise, I am used to hear the tram rattle so clearly so it woke me up super early in the morning. Breakfast was versatile and tasty, they served healthy options too. Room was nicely decorated with a wooden floor and nice view to city centre. Loved the bubble bath!
