Convenient for airline travel

Pros: On nce for parrkingg
Cons: The application form should be a bit clearer- it asked which airline and my date of travel and changed the date on my booking form to that
Location: I wanted free parking and overnight stay for airline travel
Did not go as planned- I put the day of travel in 1day later than I should have which meant I didn’t get the correct price, however. Hotel staff did. Find me a room at a considerable extra price- other than going home again I didn’t have much choice but to pay the extra fees

Good location, but the hotel needs that special something

There's nothing terribly wrong with this hotel, but the overall impression that its gone over the hill a bit. The rooms are a bit worse for wear, the breakfast was adequate, but not great or 'enchanting' as they advertised. The location is pretty great , right in the center of the city. There are many other hotels in the neighborhood, though, so I can't flat out recommend this. Only if have business in the city, and you can get a good deal I can recommend it, but don't expect anything spectacular.

Central location

The hotel has a fairly central location - just a few hundred meters from the train station, and near to the Kamppi shopping centre. The breakfast is really nice. The room wasn't particularly pretty, but served the purpose for one night.

Good, but crowdy

The hotel is nice, great location and friendly staff. It was very crowded though. A lot of russian tourists going there, which gives this "elbows out, me first" ambience. If you can cope with this kind of respectless fellow guests, you'll have a good time in this hotel. Go to breakfast early!

Sijainti täydellinen Helsingin keskustassa. Todella moderni hotelli jossa hyvät palvelut ja eritäin ammattitaitoinen ja ystävällinen henkilökunta. Siistit ja hiljaiset huoneet. Aamiainen heikkolaatuinen.
