This is a very nice hotel, located in the center of Helsinki. However, it is extremely difficult to get to the hotel, due to many of the roads around it being blocked off. Apparently you are meant to phone the hotel when you arrive, and they will lower the barriers at the end of the road so that you may drive up to the hotel. It would have been nice to know that in advance, rather than having to run around the place in the rain at midnight upon arrival.
As a married couple, we booked a queen sized bed. However, when we arrived, they were only able to give us a room with two twin beds. I wonder why they bother letting people select and pay for a queen bed if they actually have no intention of giving what has been reserved. Apart from these things, the stay at the hotel was good. The room was beautiful and spacious, and the beds were quite comfortable. The bathroom was large and had a decent shower and tub. The Internet didn't work, which was irritating. A member of staff came to our room to try to work it out, but it just wouldn't work.
Overall, a nice hotel with just a few minor problems, none of which are deal-breakers.
