I have stayed in the hotel for 5 nights. The interior of the hotel is impressive and you would think the service will be the same...well, it was full of surprises during my stay. At the check-in I wanted to opt for a room in the old wing, they informed me that it will cost me extra 10 EUR per night. So I kept the room in the new wing which is bit of a walk from the reception especially if you are with luggage. The room was tiny and compact, hardly any space for suitcases and clothes. The "wardrobe" takes about 4 hangers but then you cannot close the door properly. You cannot put your suitcase anywhere but the bed when you want to pack / unpack it. Despite all these problems I liked the room with it's modern and simple design. They tidy the room daily and you'll get fresh towels as well. The breakfast is very good, but with the same choice it gets a bit boring after day 3. The WiFi is free in the entire hotel, but do not expect any miracles. Only the basic WiFi is free and it has the speed of the 1990's modem connections. If you want to have something quicker then you have to pay 2-5 EUR per day. I also wanted to use the sauna (we are in Finland, aren't we?) only to find out that it costs 18 EUR and you have to book it 2 hours in advance. The location of the hotel is reasonably good, about 10-15 minutes walk from the city centre / esplanade / train station. Staff is helpful with directions and other things. All in all a pleasant stay however not a very good value for money as you have to pay extra for many things normally included in the price elsewhere.
