Stayed here in June for two nights. This hotel is not a posh one but has everything you need.Its location is fab close to the train and buses, easy to walk to the harbour and main shopping area's. Good size rooms, reminded us of the 70's (the bed throws and chairs) :)
Shower was fab - good wet room. kettle / tea / coffee in the room and a tv.
Breakfast was excellent too (the best out of all the other hotels we stayed at on this holiday).
Would definitely return to this hotel.
We caught the bus from the airport into the main square which was a lot cheaper than taking a taxi and very straight forward. Just ask the information desk in the hotel and they will direct you to the bus stop which is just outside the airport. We got off at the last stop which was right by the train station and just round the corner from the hotel. :)
I loved this hotel. It is in an excellent location. It is a 5 minutes walk from the central station, as well as numerous bars, restaurants and tourist sites (pier, marketplace, museuns). The breakfast was abundant, the rooms were clean and confortable. It's a very nice hotel, I loved!
We picked this hotel because it was the least expensive hotel that still offered all of the services of a hotel. Other hotels in this price range were a little more like a hostel, or were the 'self service' types of hotel. This hotel is just a few blocks from the train station, which makes it easy to get from the airport without needing a cab. The staff was really helpful with suggestions and advice on what to do. Rooms were spacious, with room for a crib for our toddler.
We had a great experience here! The location is absolutely perfect. We had a new room on the 9th floor (I think it was originally an attic?) with a decent view. The room was a lot bigger than I expected for Europe and it was very clean. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom / shower was good.
The staff at the front desk were very friendly and extremely helpful (this was our first city on our vacation and we had a lot of questions). Breakfast was good as well. We will definitely be staying here the next time we are in Helsinki.
Nice price, clean, free Wi-Fi, excellent breakfast buffet and staff all very friendly and helpful. Just around the corner from the railway station and all central Helsinki attractions. Would recommend.
Located within walking distance of the main railway station. Very convenient if taking the bus from the airport, less than ten minute walk from the bus stop. Rooms modest but clean, good breakfast, friendly helpful staff, close to tram stop.
Great hotel in the centre of the city and near transport, restaurants and lots of the sightseeing spots, yet it is on a quiet side street and near a nice public gardens.
Room was clean and functional, and had a great wet shower room and very comfortable bed. Very quiet on the 5th floor so great nights sleep.
Breakfast buffet is an excellent start to the day with plenty of hot and cold options, fresh fruit, drinks etc.
Staff very friendly and helpful.
All in all a charming old hotel that was the perfect spot to enjoy Helsinki.
Moi! I just wanted to thank you for the nights I spent in your hotel at the end of March! Everything was soooo nice, from the rooms, to the food, to the kindness of the people at the reception! And the position was also perfect! I will certainly come back when I'll return to Helsinki! Kiitos
I recently stayed in this hotel for four days on a business trip. It was a pleasure staying here. The property itself is clean and modern. Location is central and well-known parks, cafe, bars and restaurants are just at walking distance. Everything that I needed for my stay -rooms, food and services of the staff, was the best!! I would not hesitate in recommending this place to my other friends and family members.
