The room was spacious and clean. The hotel is just along from the market square, with Viking line ships docking next to the hotel. All done in a quite manner so no disturbance in the early hours. Breakfast was excellent with wide range of food available. Restaurant open for evening meals if required.

Great hotel for staying central in Helsinki. Walking distance to everything in the centre. Rooms minimal but clean and comfortable. The breakfast is great!! Huge selection of food, and very large buffet. Would definitely stay here again when coming to Helsinki. Front desk staff very helpful with all directions, information and assistance.

Beautiful hotel, big room, clean, and easy to reach from the main rail station. Small sauna, one for men and one for women. Not expensive, good value for money, It is nice also for kids. If I will come back in Helsinki I will use another time this hotel.

Official Description (provided by the hotel)
The hotel is located in a beautiful warehouse building from the early 1900s, and features plus-sized rooms and modern meeting facilities. The large arched windows and high ceilings create a spacious and bright atmosphere in the restaurant and bar. During the summertime, guests can also enjoy our large terrace. In addition to the hotel's own meeting facilities, the adjacent Marina Congress Center offers settings for events and functions of up to 2,500 people. There is plenty of parking space just outside the hotel and in the garage. The hotel offers WiFi, a gym, a sauna, and a 24-hour shop. You can borrow a bicycle or sticks for Nordic walking from the reception. Close to the Helsinki city centre, the hotel is located by the sea in idyllic Kajanokka next to the Market Square, Uspenski Cathedral, and the Helsinki SkyWheel. The hotel offers an excellent starting point to see the sights, spend some time shopping or enjoy the restaurants and nightlife of the city. ... more   less
