I booked 3 night at hotel it was fantastic! The room was cleaned and fresh during my time away which made me feel appreciated. I didn't touch minibar but check inside it was filled with a nice set of Snack and drinks had even space left for my own soda. Cabin was nice were i was able to unpack my clothes and take them after shower. Towels were great and soft i really liked them! Bathroom was not bad either. Only down side i found was during using TV trying to browse tv channel had annoying overlay during browsing. Movie option didn't work either and the remote seemed bit weird but overall my staying in was very happy and positive experience.

Business hotel close to conference centre and Helsinki's second station, access to central Helsinki easy by train or tram which stops outside the hotel. Area and hotel do lack character but is clean, modern and well run. Quiet mid-week in July, but much busier at the weekend. Avoid breakfast after 9, as it becomes a scrum on Sat and Sun. Breakfast quality was good, with a wide choice available. Hotel has gym and sauna facilities but no pool, which is the only negative. Staff polite and helpful and like everyone in Finland, speak excellent English. Overall good value, would recommend.

Huge inconvenience
All was good but the restaurant was closed. I cant walk well so this was a huge inconvenience for me as everything nearby is located uphill. I was not informed of the closed restaurant when booking.
