Location and transportation
Very good location, old building with beautiful architecture, tasty breakfast served on upper floor restaurant with view over the town, friendly reception personnel, clean room, enough space for two people.
We had a family vacation in the city center. We were warmly welcomed to the hotel and our two year old got a present soft toy which became a favorite right away. The 9th floor room was clean and nicely decorated with balcony and a great view. Guest sauna was good (traditional finnish sauna). Playroom was spacious with plenty of toys.
The room was clean and comfortable, we had our wishes for a view and hard wood floor fulfilled and the breakfast was amazing having everything I could have hoped for. Especially the glutenfree breads etc. were very tasty and there was a lot to choose from. The breakfast balcony was also amazing. Thank you!
The hotel is very centrally located, right next to the main railway station. The hotel decor has historic elements, yet does not feel outdated. Staff is friendly. Room had good sleeping quality. The bed comfortable and two pillows to choose from. Breakfast buffet has a good selection to choose from (hot and cold), and the breakfast room is spacious.
Top location in city center. Good breakfast. 24h shop in same building. Big underground parking in same building. Good choice for people arriving by train because Helsinki main station is only 50m away.
I stayed at the hotel with my family one night only. The service was good as the breakfast which I have enjoyed very much. Our room had a wonderful view on Helsinki, it was clean and wide. I have loved it very much. The check in and out was fast, the reception was friendly and professional.
Undoubtedly one of the best landscapes you can get from downtown hotels in Helsinki. You can choose the view between Kamppi and Railway station area. A great scenery opens also from their restaurant where breakfast is served. Architecture of the interiors is nice, functionalistic. Though this is a rather big hotel, personnel is still very nice and warm heartedly welcoming you. Room was clean, well equipped and comfortable, on the ninth floor, included also a large balcony with chairs and table. I think this is value for money.
A very comfortable and elegant place, conveniently located close to the railway central station and famous shopping area, a wondeful panoramic view of Helsinki, gorgeous breakfast buffet, cosy bedding.
