            • Couple
              9.6

              Good location in a centre of Helsinki, close to railway station and main shopping centres.

            • Older travelers
              8.2

              Close to the bus station.

              Room layout--long walk from lift to room.

            • Couple
              6.2

              - The room was clean, had standard equipment. - The breakfast room and buffet was nice.

              - Hotel reception did not find my reservation until i mentioned it was made through Booked.net. - The room seemed like a standard double room, although it was classified as "superior" double room (whatever that means). - No clock in the room. - A lamp in the room was broken. Why didn't e.g. the cleaning lady (90% of cases it's a "she") order it fixed when she did her rounds? Poor service mentality. - Noticed a bit of the usual Finnish attitude to service/guests at the breakfast room ("cattle" which need to be steered in the right direction). Just a contrast to some other hotels abroad ...

            • Couple
              5.4

              I'd like Location

              I didn't like comfort and services.

            • Single
              5.0

              This is a rather tired hotel and very expensive for what you get.

            • Group of friends
              8.2

              The room was comfortable and cleen. Breakfast was excellent. The proximity to the train station and city center was very convenient.

              The number of computers in the hotel lobby could be bigger. We had to wait for a while to get a chance to use one. The air quality in our room was not ideal, the ventilation could be better.

            • Couple
              3.8

              Only the location of the hotel is corresponding to the description

              The hotel is very old and realy not a 5 stars as it is announced

            • Single
              8.2

              I did not like the tightly closed windows in my room - I could not open them at all to get fresh air. Although the room was air-conditioned, it was not enough for me.

            • Group of friends
              6.2

              Its location and price. Good typically european type breakfast.

              Porly finished bathroom and dust on vent louvers; noisy ventilation in the room. WiFi was not working well; most of the time connected with error and no access. Elevator: when you come to it with several people who are going to different levels, the last who've used the entrance card and pushed the button wins the game and elevators goes to the last pointed level. Maybe it is applicable only the left hand elevator where is happened.

            • Group of friends
              6.6

              It was clean and in a good location. The staff were very nice and we enjoyed the Spanish restaurant.

              The room was rather warm and the thermostat didn't seem to work to cool the temperature. When calling down to the front desk, it seems like the call was rarely answered. The in-house wi-fi was difficult to connect to and then the connection did not seem very reliable.

            • Older travelers
              9.6

              I have good feelings staying at your Hotel

              I enjoed the staff attention

            • Group of friends
              5.4

              Air-conditioning was broken,no toothpaste,comb,and rest bath things

            • Older travelers
              9.6

              Everything was great, staff was very friendly, free wireless internet.

              The hotel does not have a porter, so customers with lots of luggage have to help themselves using cards.

            • Family with children
              7.8

              The place and services was perfect!

              The room was too small for 5 people,this room only for 3-4 guest

            • Couple
              3.2

              Polite and friendly staff, nice home restaurant with fine food, free internet, parking

              when you book room at this hotel be ready, that all your wishes will be ignored, so update all info at the desk. Also really dirty rooms with dust, stain and wires everywhere... Bad breakfast for finish hotel This hotel can be a 2 star hotel if we talk about room and bath.
