Overall When the hotel opened in 1931 it was the tallest building in Helsinki. It still has great views over Helsinki. The hotel is well kept and has beautiful decor. There could be more cleaning staff and better breakfast to truly make this hotel the gem it deserves to be. If you are looking for authentic Helsinki experience with good... More

Cute little lookout and bar. Great blueberry cider. Super near 360 view of the city. Friendly staff from the front desk to the terrace bartenders. Fun spiral staircases to observation terrace and to very clean WC. Unique sunset view of the sea port and the towers of the city at the arctic circle.

Nice old hotel with unique history. Location could not be better in Helsinki. Rooms vary a lot, in general they are clean and decoration is very alternative from the main Skandinavian style. With old building comes some tricks, this is not Open and spaceous, more like a mace with narrow hallways. This is the place where locals go to stay... More

We stayed there only for a night so i have an opinion only for a short stay. There was a festival taking place at the time of our visit so we think we paid a lot for a room like this. It was a big room and despite the fact that the whole hotel seemed to be renovated, it still... More

Hotel ideally located in the Centre of Helsinki. Large room at the 5th floor, very clean and equipped. I particularly appreciated the coffee machine and the free water. Very calm. Don't miss the breakfast and especially the salmon, just delightfully good!!!! Shopping just around the hotel, nice and charming harbour at 10 mn walking, close to the train station.
