Good hotel, satisfied

Posted May 7, 2017
Pros: Sauna, staff, interior, breakfast are good.
Cons: Screws should be screwed. Soap should be on basin.
Location: Bike rent station to the west.
Located in walkable or cyclable distance from Forum and Railway station. Almost everything is good: staff, interior, breakfast. Has sauna as many Finnish hotels. There are couple of small unpleasant things. First, there was no soap in room, I was explicitly told on reception that they have only shower gel and shampoo in shower cabin. And it's not possible to get this shower gel from shower cabin to basin. I had to pour gel in shower cabin and wash hand in basin. Inconvenient. Second, glass "curtain" which formed shower cabin had one screw which was sticking out, not screwed in completely.

Boutique hotel close to city

Posted Apr 25, 2017
Pros: Reasonably convenient to city and other sites. Furnished with classic Finnish design pieces.
Cons: Breakfast is very average with very limited selection of teas, hot food, jams and pastries.
Location: Reasonably convenient to the city. Close to the Rock Church and National Museum of Finland.
Hotel was comfortable but nothing special. Rooms were small and breakfast average. Arrived from airport at 7:00 am after a 22 hours flying but couldn't check in until 3:00 pm. Only place to change was in a toilet cubicle.

Good hotel in the city centre

Posted Apr 24, 2017 on Hotels
Great location in the city centre, friendly staff, easy check in & out. I had booked a room for one, and the room had plenty of space for my luggage and still enough to move around. Complimentary shampoo and shower gel were a nice surprise. Breakfast was really good. Easy to recommend this hotel and I would stay again when visiting Helsinki.

Pleasantly surprised

Posted Apr 15, 2017
I was expecting much less. But the room, although small, was more than i needed. The bathroom was huge. The breakfast had a good variety; hot and cold. Close to everything.

Indie hotel puching above it's weight!

Posted Apr 2, 2017 on Hotels
Stayed at this hotel many times, however, it has been maybe a good 18months since I stayed there.Must say I was pleasantly surprised. It was always a decent stay, however, they certainly are trying a little harder and from the warm welcome from the Receptionist, standard of room, to the quality and choice of the breakfast buffet I could not fault it. It's a short walk to most amenities and the Kampi shopping centrum and bars and restuarants. About a 12-15minute walk from the Central rail station to the hotel. Would recommend without hesitation and will try and stay there again on my next trip to Helsinki.
