The hotel has a fantastic location, slap bang in the middle of the shopping district and a few metres from the Esplanade and a short walk to the bus and train station or the ferry port. Despite this the rooms are well insulated from street noise.
The reception is compact and can get busy given the number of rooms. I booked a medium size double room which was on the 6th floor and a good size. The room was very nicely decorated and for once boutique meant just that – quality fittings, well thought out space and good bathroom. Nice toiletries and great shower, the bed was comfortable and the climate control worked well. For the price paid it offered excellent value for the centre of Helsinki.
Breakfast was good with a nice choice of food and decent bread, juice and coffee. The restaurant is quite compact so it does get crowded at popular times but I was always able to get a table.
Wifi was a bit patchy in the room and the free connection was quite slow although there were faster connections available for an additional fee.
I was extremely happy with my choice for the three days I was here and will be happy to return.
