The cozy boutique hotel is an old mansion in the center of Porvoo's charming old town, nestled among wooden neoclassical buildings that are now boutiques and restaurants, including the amazing wooden cathedral (where Russian Tsar Alexander II once worshipped). This gem is furnished with both antiques and modern conveniences, including in-room saunas. The staff is impeccably attentive, kind, and lovely. Breakfast is artfully served and includes homemade yoghurt and farm-fresh eggs, as well as an unbelievably rich chocolate pastry that even a fitness freak like myself could not resist. I found myself wanting to drift back to this peaceful and beautiful hotel between business meetings to enjoy the creative buzz I felt from all the surrounding comfort.
