I stayed here with a friend for a couple of nights and was looking forward to it after hearing so much great things about it. The hotel itself is right in the center of Helsinki, which is perfect for those who are interested in shopping and doing people-watching. It's a beautiful hotel with large rooms and the luxury-feel you except from a hotel in this class. I have no complaints about the room, the staff or the beds per se, but there were some flaws.
When you stay at a place like this, you except certain things. I was shocked to find out that you are expected to pay for using the WiFi connection. The fee is not a small one either. In fact, the price for 24h access was around 20€, which is just ridiculous. How come this isn't free for the guests when other hotels in lower price ranges can offer it for free? Needless to say, we didn't want to support this form of robbery and so didn't use the service.
Finally, the TV channels had some lag now and then, which was annoying. No idea why, but just so you know.
Besides the WiFi and TV-issue, this is a great place to stay.More
