    • Liked: Staff & service, property conditions & facilities, room comfort

    Overall it was nice. Could have been a bit cleaner and it was often too warm in the room, even when I adjusted the thermostat all the way down to the coolest setting. This made sleeping some evenings a bit uncomfortable.

      Located in downtown Helsinki, the hotel is near to shops and restaurants, the train station, and within walking distance to attractions. My hotel room felt spacious, was very clean and the beds were very comfortable; the breakfast buffet was excellent. Although you are in the heart of Helsinki, the hotel is very quiet.

      Good location, very small room

      The check in was nice and service minded, the room was tiny with an even tinier bathroom. The bed on, but worn out on one side. The retro phone was probably a nice design idea, but not useful and the work desk was too small with a very uncomfortable stool (no chair).I was charged €300 per night which is way too much for what it was worth. Breakfast was ok, but nothing near what one expects in the Nordic countries. But very good location.

      Stayed 3 nights in Oct 2019
