Finnish holidayPosted Oct 15, 2012 on Hotels.com
It was a great place to stay. However use the address and a real map as we used google maps and it got us lost for about ten minutes then we just used a real map lol. Anyways the rooms are clean quite quite and close to the tram ( it's right out front )

Different view of HelsinkiPosted Oct 12, 2012 on Hotels.com
Ok, I travel in Helsinki for years but forgot that this hotel is in the wrong part of town...but not all bad as I think previous reviews make out! The location is in a previous "dodgy "old part of town which could now be called loosely Bohemian.I arrived and was welocmed by very pleasant reception staff. My room was quite small even for a single, but clean enough...tiny bathroom. I had a front room where you can hear the trams runnig outside when the windows are open....not great for light sleepers...Breakfast was average but not the worst I have tasted. There are quite a few nice restaurants and bars around the area and much cheaper than the City centre. Recommend you walk down to catch the tube to town or take a tram....Enjoy a different view of the City! Good hotel for basic business travel or if you are on a budget......not sure I would bring my partner there for a romantic stay....better off in an expensive central location for that. Good value no complaints,....oh and the Irish bar in the hotel is the most expensive in the area! hahaha

Value for money option with friendly staffPosted Oct 4, 2012
Its value for money. The tram stop is right opposite to the hotel which makes it convenient to get to the city centre. The staff was courteous and offered that I can check out late, at 6pm since I had an evening flight. The rooms and the hotel are old, but nothing wrong with them. The breakfast buffet had sufficient options.

Ok value for money hotelPosted Sep 22, 2012
Pros: Comfy single bed with light duvet
Cons: Bit small room
Location: Was nicely close to where I needed to be for business. So good for me.
Fairly small room with a single bed, but functional. Location is good with trams on the door step but trams are also noisy when you want your window open.

Great for Ice Stadium, and Vatteri Flea MarketPosted Oct 3, 2011 on Hotels.com
We chose this hotel as it was uptown, 5 minutes walk from the big flea market (which is excellent) and also a short trip from the Ice Hall, where we were seeing a gig. It was clean and fine, a little basic, but did the job. It is also just 15 minutes on the tram from the centre of town. The tram leaves right outside the hotel, so its a good choice if you are on a budget. The restaurant is also fine, good range of food, perfectly edible. I was taken ill while I was there and the receptionist could not have been more helpful. I saw a doctor and had medication within an hour. I am very appreciative of the helpfulness of the staff when I needed it (which is surely all that matters, when you are in a foreign country!).

Not a Great Option but an Ok OptionPosted Sep 18, 2011
Booked late and this was the only thing within an affordable range. There is a mixed bar district nearyby, thought there is a bit of a quite/slightly dodgy feel to the area, though some of the places seemed to have character. That said it is less than a few minutes by metro the centre. Rooms are basic and small, though clean. Breakfast is good though there was a large tour group that monpolised the entire space during the stay. All in all not bad, not great, just ok.

The location was fine, as was the quality of the room, however the cleaning was a bit hit-and-miss and the reception staff were cold and clinical. When I arrived I had to carry my own bags to my room and no one wished me a pleasant stay. On leaving, my exact conversation with the woman on the front desk was as follows: Me: 'Hello - I'd like to check out of room (number), please.' Her: "Mini bar?' Me: 'No, I didn't use that.' Her: 'Thank you.' (Pause) Me: 'Is that it, then?' Her: 'That's it.' Then I left, without being wished a good/safe journey, or anyone asking if I had enjoyed my stay in the hotel, or the city... and that was that.
