The Hotel is conveniently close to the train station and the city center, easily accessible. The room is small but clean, tidy and tastefully decorated. Breakfast was an abundant selection of choices both cold and warm dishes, different bread types, fruits, vegetables, juices. Staff was really friendly and coped with my odd requests perfectly.

The hotel is very nice and suitable. Location is convenient, near the railway station, metro station and bus station, in the commercial heart of the city. Rooms are equipped with good LCD TV sets, wi-fi internet is free all over the hotel. Bathroom is clean and modern. The relationship between price and quality is the best I've seen before.

Would definitely stay here again. Excellent value for the money. The best aspect was the competent, accommodating staff, from the personable waiter in the restaurant to the helpful barman, but especially the reception staff who did everything they could to make our stay a good one. Location is within walking distance of museums, shopping, excellent restaurants and the harbor. The design, furnishings and layout never let you forget that you are in Finland. My only complaint was the rundown appearance of the bathroom with traces of mildew. The rest of the experience definitely compensated for this, though.

Beautiful Hotel. unfurtunatelly I ended up in a room where the windows could only be opened partially and I hated it. Ask for a room where you can open the windows. But overall a very nice Hotel.
