Parveke on mahtava, wc niin pieni et mieheni ei mahdu jos on ovi kiinni. Siivooja Päivi oli huippu hänelle 10pistettä, asiakaspalvelu henkinen ja siivouksen osasi ammattitaidolla.

Hotelli-info iPadilla, jollaista en käytä. TV-komennoissa ohjeita säätönäppäimistä, joilla ei vastaavaa nimeä kaukosäätimessä. Monipuolinen aamiainen. Hyvä sijjainti

Hei, kiitos palautteestanne. Mukava kuulla että aamiainen ja sijaintimme oli mieluisa. TV:n ja kaukosäätimen osalta tarkistamme tekstit, jotta ne vastaisivat mahdollisimman hyvin toisiaan. Lämpimästi tervetuloa vieraaksemme kun seuraavan kerran tulette Helsinkiin!
