Down in the quieter, cooler, but easy to reach and enjoy "design district", this landmark Deco mini-palace has been converted into a medium-sized hotel by annexing the non-descript modern block next door. The rooms can only be described as "bijou", the decor as highly practical, and the curious roomkey-driven "airlock" system that copes with guest security and Helsinki's winter climate takes a day or so of getting used to. If what you want is generic and plastic, book somewhere else. If what you'd like is a comfortable, convenient and reasonable bolt-hole right in the heart of the primo knick-knack shopping area, several idyllic parks, the occasional theatre and museum and just a couple of hundred steps from the "6" tram, try it for size. Staff fine, breakfast ok, cleanliness good. Just to the left is an independent excellent bar with some of the finest bar food I've ever eaten, equally excellent music and primo beer. And the harbour is just 5 mins walk down the road.
