We booked this hotel as it was near to the airport and our plane wasn't due to arrive until 9pm. Due to delays we didn't actually get there (satnav took a while to kick in - wouldn't attempt to navigate round finland without it) until about 11pm, when everything was shut (the whole of Finland seemed to be shut in May!) My partner who booked the rooms had intelligently decided to leave her mobile phone off "as it reminded her of work" so we couldn't gain access to the hotel. We were tired and not thinking straight by this time, so didn't ring the mobile number on the reception window which would no doubt have enabled us to get an access code. By a total fluke I used the code for access to the booking.com website, thinking it might be connected (it isn't) but my finger pressed one key twice. So looked as though any five figure number would have given access. Lucky, given that we didn't want to spend a night in the car in freezing conditions. So that's a tip for any visitors to Finland in May - keep your mobile on and be prepared to find your hotel unstaffed, even though you have booked it. get the access code from the reception window after you have wiped the ice from it.
Otherwise a rather nice hotel in a sort of student residence way, with a typical Finnish breakfast of good quality and pretty decent staff. It's ideal for anyone wanting a quiet hotel after coming in to Vantaa airport and beginning a tour of Finland, as you aere only just off the ring road, but well set for journeys North, West, and North east.
