How far away is a public sauna from the hotel?
There is the Allas sea pool across the harbour. Maybe 15 to 20min walk. It’s got saunas, outdoor heated pools and a sea pool. As well as a restaurant and a bar.

The best way to get from the airport to the hotel is by Yellow Line Taxi (hope we have remembered the name correctly) - a shared ride shuttle service. It is easily organised in both directions and cost effective. If you contact the hotel they will provide you with other options. The hotel is on a quiet street and only a short walk from the market hall and harbour. It takes a little longer to get to other attractions - perhaps 15 minutes to the Helsinki Cathedral. We found it very convenient and walked to all the places we visited. We enjoyed staying at this hotel - the staff were very friendly and helpful, the breakfasts were good and the room was very comfortable. The hotel does not have an evening restaurant - you can organise room service, for a 10 Euro delivery fee, from a "sister" hotel a couple of blocks away. We didn't do this as there are some good options for evening meals nearby.

Dear sdettaa, We do have a couple of options for you. Best one would be a Lux room with adjoining corridor next to a Comfort room. Please note that the doors open to a corridor which is not used by other quests. Other options would be a Style room connected to a style room on the 6th floor, but they are rather small. One option also is a Lux room connected to a Lux room, but I would suggest a Lux with a Comfort room. Just send us an email to info@hotelfabian.fi and we can give you rates and more information. Kind Regards, Anna Alamaki Hotel Manager

"ask for a room facing the central courtyard for an extra quiet stay"
"Don't believe any of the rooms have any sort of view - focus on what you want in your room."
"Our room was fine. On second floor. Nothing objectionable to note."
"For quiet, ask for a room on the rear. Block-out curtains but no shutters on windows => not full obscurity at night (northern Europe)."
"Go for Lux to get home-away-from home feel with a bigger room and kitchenette"
US$142 - US$296 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
