The hotel is located right in the centre of Helsinki, so you won't have to go far to do anything. Service was good, nothing to complain about. The rooms had a few flaws, such as the lamp in the picture didn't stay up. Room was quite small, but good for a few nights. There also wasn't a bathtub, which isn't that big of a deal, but most hotels do so it kind of stood out to me.

We had 2 rooms for the family. Stayed 1 night. The double room is very nice. Warmly furnished with view to the main street. The triple room was a bit empty and sad, with view to the back, but rather large. Both were clean and tidy. However, the rooms were cold. We were on a rather nice autonm day, and the heating did not work yet. The AC is only cooling. The location is amazing. Close to the main train station and to even nearer metro, tram and busses. Breakfast is excellent!!! Take the time to enjoy it. We arrived around 13:15, and were able to get the rooms even though official check-in time is 15:00. Definitely highly recommended :-)
