This was my first stay in this hotel and I was looking forward to it. The location is very central. Service was very friendly. The lobby is small and dark and the reception desk is also small. Bar was closed - an interesting decision in the middle of the busiest tourist season! Our group had four rooms so I was able to peek into different rooms. It appears that the (standard) rooms (and their bathrooms) are all different in size and shape. The room I stayed in was small and the bathroom (with bathtub) was very small. Bed was comfortable, but it was slightly too small for two people, as was the sheet. There was only pillow per person in the room. If you need extra pillows you have to get them from the reception - not something you wish to do when you are all ready to go to bed. There is no A/C so you have to open the windows to cool down the room. There is no minibar in the room so you better BYO. The sound insulation in the rooms is poor - you can easily hear noise from neighboring rooms. There is a nightclub next door, which is open to 4 a.m. In the rooms on that side of the building you can hear the disco bump through the night. TV has a good selection of channels - except CNN, which is listed but does not show. Breakfast buffet was ok, but the selection of hot foods was limited. As there is a wide selection of hotels in the same price category with better rooms and services in the center city of Helsinki I will not return to this hotel.
