“perfect location”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed 5 April 2014

I had to choose a hotel in my hometown because my flat were being refurbished. Although my stay was short we spent plenty of time inside. The location cannot be better, the breakfast is gorgeous and the chambermaids are helpfull and very polite. Do not miss it while staying in Helsinki.

Age for sure is visible in rooms where single room very small, even close to uk levels. Though location is perfect for city central. Good buffet breakfast and nice & helpful personnel. If arriving own car, parking hall door just in front. Note, only side street parking places available in city centre if to arrive after midnight.

I spend one night in this traditional hotel. Room was twin room not in noisy street side. Room was spacious and clean. Bathroom was quite standard not special. Service was good. Location in the heart of Helsinki is very good. There is plenty of nice places around hotel. Breakfast was ok but area was too small compared to people having breakfast there. So beware of timing your breakfast. Parking of car was handy but expensive.

Room Tip: Take from non street side. There is noisy night club around hotel and can affect to your sleep quali...

The location is one of the best in the area. You are not far from transportation where you need to get to the market square or anywhere else in Helsinki.

The room itself is clean, I love the shower and the modern feel of the living space. The reason I did not give this hotel five stars would be because of the noise factor. The individuals above us were quite loud until quite late and that makes it difficult if you are trying to catch up on sleep from traveling.

The hallway as well can be noisy at points, so you must get accustomed to that or be able to sleep quite heavy. All in all though, it was a wonderful place to stay.

The location is superb, this is probably the best location where a hotel can be in Helsinki! They do have rooms with bathtubs and it's a huge plus for me! The breakfast area (Fransmanni) is too tiny, but they do have a few tables outside as well (enjoyable during the summer but beware of the seagulls!).

Room Tip: this hotel still has rooms with bathtubs, just ask!

Does what it says on the tin, basic no thrills city hotel. Lower class than a uk Travel Lodge and Premier Inn. Wouldn't stay again as I'm sure for €150 there is better. Had to move luggage as the hotel was closing for Xmas at noon, which should have been advised.

Room Tip: High room on South side away from bars.
