I stayed at this hotel and I want to warn anyone considering a stay here. The rooms are filthy dirty with mould in the bathrooms. I also had an incident where I found a "piece of snot" on my towel when I checked in... I put the towel on the floor as I felt uncomfortable using such a dirty towel......

Furnishings looked well worn and dirty - not comfortable so didn't sit in the chairs. Bedding not changed during 4 night stay. Lack of friendliness in most areas of the hotel. Location is excellent but not an enjoyable stay

Stayed 2 nights and the room size is quite small for triple room. Not much amenity in the bathroom (shampoo, body gel and handwash). The housekeeping did not replenish coffee n tea for day 2. It was still a great stay due to its location and the staff in the hotel. Breakfast was great. If price is right, I will...

The best part of this hotel is it's location - it is only minutes walk for the Central railway station where you can hop on a train to the airport. Also, breakfast was quite nice - good selection of food options, however, on weekends try to come early as the dining area fills up quickly and later people could not...

Great hotel: mestorapolozhenie, service, value for money. Disadvantages: a strong breakfast with a large number of guests, not very comfortable pillows - elastic, but that trouble many hotels ! Also note the friendly staff and the wooden floors in the room !

I stayed here one night. The hotel has a good and central location. Short way to shopping. The beds are good and the breakfast is also very good. Did not get to try the traditional sauna, but might do next time.

hotel close to the railwaystation (with a very easy and rugular link to the airport) and the city centre with shops and restaurants, but not on the very busy boulevards. Helsinki has something for everyone : culture, musea, shops, restaurants. A visit to Tallinn by boat is great.
