Comfortable room, convenient, excellent customer service. Would love to stay again. The breakfast had great variety and there was always room in the restaurant. The location of the hotel is ideal for links to transport, shopping and walking distance from all main sites. I found the staff to be particularly professional and courteous.

Thank you for your excellent service during my staying in Helsinki. Service was very good at all circumstances. I even received Superior room for my use instead of original room. Peaceful room according to my wishes. Central location is good asset for this hotel.
