I booked Cumulus Pinja after reading a few reviews online. I felt like going to another hotel - nothing to do with the "art noveau" mentioned about the hotel. It is a fake - you don't see too many art noveau objects / furniture / architecture around there. There is some wallpaper and small details you can find. That's all about it.
First they had several mistakes with our booking request. Then we got a superior room with twin beds and an extra bed, instead of superior room with a double bed as requested. Luckily they made the only right decision to upgrade us to a suite.
The suite was quite dirty, old fashioned, no air condition etc. We had to place a complaint for what we got. There was dust and dirt in many places, including bathroom.
In the evening we came back to the hotel and wanted to have some snacks and wine. All they had was Finnish "long drink" (please see Wikipedia or any other source in order to read about the honorable history of this drink generated for the Finnish Olympics in 1952!) and beer. A terrible mix with the snacks they had available - Pringles and hot dogs.
The staff was friendly, professional, and did their best to make our stay as comfortable as possible. Finally we got a bottle of sparkling, which made our day. However, I wouldn't come here again.
