Convenient location to all main attractions

Pros: The location and breakfast
Cons: the temperature of the room
Location: Centrally located to Old Town and Quite Centre. Also very near train and bus station in case you wish to travel further afield.
The hotel was in an excellent loacation. It was close to the bus and train terminals but is also convenient to walk to all the local attrations (Old Town / Quiet Centre). The breakfast was excellent and the staff very polite and accomodating. My only concern was the bed and pillows were way too soft for my liking and although i had the heating off the room was incredibly hot (which i found strange as the termperature outside was about zero). In the end i had to have the window open but then the noise from outside was too much).

Siisti, remontoitu pikku hotelli. Hyvä sijainti, ystävällinen ja kielitaitoinen palvelu sekä hyvä aamiainen. Kävelymatkan päässä kaikki vanhankaupungin nähtävyydet sekä Stockmann ja isohko, siisti ostoskeskus ihan vieressä. Asema myös vieressä vaikkei junalla kuljettukaan. Hotellissa itsessään ei kummempia aktiviteetteja, mutta kaikkea löytyy ihan tuntumasta.

Vastaanottovirkailijat halusivat opastaa kysymättäkin merkittäville nähtävyyksille ja neuvoivat edullisiin vaihtoehtoihin.

Loistava kaikinpuolin, jos jotain haluaisi mainita niin Sisääntuloaula aika pimeä myös päivällä, samoin aamiaistilan yleisilme pimeä kun lattia, seinät ja huonekalut tummia.
