The hotel is situated in 5 min walk from the city centre, in a very quiet neighbourhood. It has no reception and therefore even no possibility to buy breakfast on the place. Before arriving you should know the code to open the front door. The girl, who may give you the key comes at only 9 am, so if you arrive at night, you would wait for until she comes. The apartments have two rooms, one living room with tv, armchairs, table and chairs, another room is a sleeping one with quite comfortable beds and a bathroom. There's also a kitchen with all the dishes, microwave, fridge, everything you need. The very apt. is very nice and comfortable.
They also have sauna, which you can book for you (couple) only by writing down the number of your room in the table on its door. Then it would be ready for you by the hour you stated.
The only minus of the hotel is that it's too expensive for such kind of service. In Sept. 2011 we paid 130 eur/room/night, but Helsinki isn't cheap at all in general...
All in all we liked our stay and would love to return to this place again!
