New hotel built on the edge of the old town. Mid price range. Decent location, since the old town is quite small and can be easily walked round. Rooms are small. We paid for an upgrade to a larger room and then got booted out of the room after the first night, because a regular visitor wanted it. A free bottle of sparkling wine did at least make up for the disappointment. The food is pretty decent, with a good selection at breakfast. Make it plain from the start that you won't pay for extras unless you've signed for them. We were asked to pay for a number of items charged to our room, but which we had never had.
Take a day trip on the ferry to Helsinki, it's pretty cheap, takes you right to the city centre and gives you plenty of time to look round without having to pay exhorbitant hotel costs. The Old Town hotel is around 10 to 15 minutes from the ferry terminal.
