Excellent hotel convenient for touring major sites

Pros: Convenient location, excellent service
Location: Centrally located to many sites. within walking distance to train station and harbor
The hotel was centrally located, only a ten minute walk from the train station. Many shops, restaurants within a few minute walk. Relatively quiet setting near transport (trams and buses are literally across the street. Service was fantastic, especially that provide by Jenna at the front desk. She willingly helped me book a ferry from helsinki to tallinn and went out of her way to make sure all my travel questions were answered. Super breakfast with quality foods. The smoked salmon was delicious and the made-to-order omelettes and pancakes I nice touch.

Old rooms, require major renovation. Cleaning was not done properly, there was garbage in the bin from the previous guests. Service at reception slow and not professional. Breakfast is OK but one would find wider choice in other hotels in Helsinki. Certainly not a 4* hotel.

Well located oasis of comfort

The room was perfect for someone with a disability and was centrally located in a pedestrian friendly city. Service and helpfulness room and breakfast were top rate. It was really appreciated that the lifts were so near the room and so imaginatively designed. We were in easy wheelchair pushing reach of all the major sights. One minor thought which only occurred to me after return was that the 24hr self service coffee bar could have offered a wider range of sandwiches and the vegetarian menu could have had two options instead of one. These are very minor quibbles. This is an excellent hotel that is extremely well designed.

Perfectly adequate for city break

Hotel is a bit out of the 'centre'of Helsinki, but a 20 minute stroll sees you at the heart of things. Room was very clean, if slightly on the small side. Bathroom was also very clean, with all the expected bits and pieces (hair-dryer, shower gel/shampoo etc.) Breakfast (included) was more then adequate and of a reasonably good standard. The meal we ate at the 'Grill It!' restauarant was excellent. On the down-side, the complimentary coffee/ tea , sweetners and creamer were NOT replaced on a daily basis. Additionally, the beds were NOT made properly eac morning, with the duvet just being pulled over the rumpled bottom sheet.

New Years trip

It could be due to the new year and staff holidays but the room was sadly kept, which is disappointing really they could have made a bit more money from me if they bothered to restock the mini bar after I raided it. The hotel itself was well appointed with modern furnishing all in good condition. The beds were the latest space age memory foam. I personally find memory foam cooks me and is too hard but others swear by the stuff. So depending on who you are you will either love or hate the beds. Note the bed was the reason the room comfort was rated as 3 otherwise it would have been 5. The hotel is conveniently located in the heart of the city so it is easy to get anywhere in Helsinki from this location. For the ladies - read major shopping centre just down the street (plus opera, museums, theater). For us guys there's pubs and lots of other things near by as well.

Uudet tilat olivat viihtyisät. Rauhallinen ja hiljainen hotelli. Aamupala loistava, löytyy myös hyvin gluteenittomia tuotteita. Lattiakaivo veti huonosti ja koko wc-tils sen johdosta ui vedessä eikä ollut lattialastaa, jolla vedet saisi pyyhittyä pois.

Kiitoksia arvokkaasta palautteestanne! Mahtavaa kuulla, että nautitte aamupalastamme, ja saitte rentouduttua rauhallisessa huoneessa. Pahoittelut, että kylpyhuoneen ongelmista. Uudistamme hotellihuoneitamme parhaillaan, jotta tulevaisuudessa vieraamme eivät joudu kokemaan kyseisiä tilanteita. Oikein mukavaa alkukesää ja toivottavasti näemme teidät uudelleen! Ystävällisin terveisin, Ida Vastaanotto
