Reviewed 25 August 2014

Initially I wasn't sure, the room we had seemed small, there were no tea and coffee facilities in the room that we booked but some rooms do have that option. The fridge was locked (which was probably just as well) we asked for a key but there were no spares! However, the bed was comfortable and we were out most of the day. The room was cleaned and tidied every day? The hotel is a short walk to the market square and the boat trips. Town is only a half hour away and buzzing with life.
The breakfast choices were very very good and plenty of it. We ate in the evening in the restaurant and very happy with the food. The staff were always friendly and helpful
It's a very busy hotel with people coming and going all the time. It was fully booked whist we were there

Room Tip: Not sure but ask for tea and coffee facilities if you like coffee in bed in the morning

Quiet hotel, even with several boys' hockey teams at hotel. The bed was comfortable (two twin beds pushed together with two separate duvets). Desk staff friendly and helpful, rented a car through the staff at the front desk - car was delivered to and picked up from hotel. The conference centre is across the street from the hotel and the Silja ferry docks just across the harbour (we took a taxi to the hotel, as suitcases are hard to roll over the cobblestones). The room was clean, but housekeeping service on days 2 and 3 was not the best, no replacement of milk or coffee in the room, pulled up duvet on bed, but not made to look tidy. Shower has good water flow and towels were good quality. Hairdryer, nightlight, and magnifying mirror supplied in bathroom. Bring your own washcloth. Excellent, free wifi. 30 minutes from airport.

Just off the market center near to the Viking line ferry terminal, this hotel is well worth a stay. Converted from a port side warehouse, it is an interesting building and a very nicely styled hotel. The rooms are very high standard, clean and the beds are some of the best I have slept in. The restaurant and bar are well serviced and the menu is excellent. Breakfast is superb but typical Scandinavian style. I think it may have something to do with the Finnish character, but the staff although efficient and friendly, are not warm. You feel a reserved welcome and you get the sense they are all working that little bit too hard to be affable. Great stay and we will return.

The hotel is well located if you are taking a Viking line ferry. The hotel itself is big - a converted warehouse - and can be very busy. Staff are helpful, breakfast is nice - all in all a good hotel.

Plusses: I loved the e-checkout where you were able to checkout over mobile device and just drop the key at the reception.

Breakfast was good.

Location is great near the Esplanaadi.

Minuses: First time I have seen a room minibar that was locked, so to have a drink you had to go to the reception to pick up a key.

The hotel is very close to the Viking Line terminal, so it's convenient for cruise and ferry passengers. You can store your luggage in the luggage room before check-in and after check-out. Good breakfast buffet (very crowded at peak times). On the harbor, close to the tourist market, Uspensky cathedral and other landmarks.
