Staying at this hotel was one of the nicest experiences I've ever had. The three-star hotel was not as pricey as other hotels in Helsinki, but I decided to give it a go. It turned out the hotel was brand new (opened in August 2007) so the rooms and bathrooms and the hotel in its entirety was top-notch. I was especially delighted with the modern, practical bathroom. The rooms were nicely decorated and bed extremely confortable. The hotel was quiet and the atmosfere was relaxed.
The staff was an absolute joy - one night during the week we arrived at the hotel at about 1-2 am, exhausted, dirty and dusty as we had been helping our friends move all day and night. The restaurant has already closed and we were starving. Without hesitation the receptionist offered to trace the chef in the back of the kitchen and in less than ten minutes we had these beautiful trays filled with gorgeous food that we could take into our rooms. Needless to say, it felt like it was the best meal I had even had! Also, upon arrival a free wi-fi codes were offered to us for the whole duration of our three-day stay without us even having to ask for it.
The breakfast buffet was very good, as was the italian-style hotel restaurant.
The location of the hotel is at the city centre in Punavuori which is a great lively and fashionable area for design boutiques and nightlife.
