My friends and I stayed in a triple room for three nights. The room was in the first floor towards the back of the hotel so we couldn't hear any street noise during the night. Furthermore, our room was very spacious. It was really a triple room and not just a double room with an extra bed. We were very positively surprised! The bathroom was also big enough for the three of us. The TV had dozens of channels and the beds were very comfortable.
The staff was extremely friendly and it didn't hurt that most of them could speak Finnish with us. We had an early arrival and a late departure but we could leave our luggage in the luggage room. The staff was also very helpful and readily answered all of our questions (at the hotel and through e-mail already less than an hour after we had made our reservation through ebookers). The reception was open 24/7.
The location was great! We only had to use public transportation to get to the airport. All the museums, shopping streets, sights, parks etc. were within walking distance. The walk to the central railway station only took about 15 minutes.
We didn't try the hotel's own breakfast but there were many grocery stores, cafes and restaurants nearby. The nearest ones were in the same building. You'll never go to bed hungry!
All in all, our stay at the hotel was very pleasant. The only negative side I can think of is the fact that our room didn't have its own hairdryer. If we wanted one, we had to borrow it from the reception.
