Great location, but rooms are a bit tired
Practical hotel - nothing fancy but very convenient for the central station. The room was practical but quite tired. While it was a single, it was very small. The breakfast was massive but very average. A good hotel for location but not if you want to hang out in your room.

Good stay
Nice, clean, and comfortable, even though the room was quite small. Great central location, and decent breakfast with a fine rooftop view. Would stay here again!

Stayed in the room with a spacious balcony, fabulous. One of the best rooms we have stayed in for a reasonable price. Staff is very friendly, can't beat the location, and the minibar was actually cold. The balcony is more like a spacious terrace than a balcony. Highly recommend!

Perfect location
The hotel is so centrally located that we walked everywhere we wanted to visit. It is across the street from the train station and the express airport bus. Next to the hotel are two large grocery stores with both fresh and prepared foods for those who might want a break from restaurants, which abound in the area. Our 7th floor room was small but clean, and the beds were comfortable. The closet left too little room for hanging clothes. The bathroom would be safer and more convenient with a step-in shower rather than the small tub with high sides and too-round bottom. Also needing updating, though the rotary dial phone had an antique charm, are the placement of the electrical outlets, and the Ethernet ports that need to be changed to USB ports. The Wifi is poor, but at least it’s free. The ample breakfast buffet offered lots of hot prepared foods as well as cold cereals, huge bowls of yogurt and fruit, baskets of pastries, etc., constantly refilled, as the dining room was very crowded, squeezing some people out to the balcony. Being on 10th floor, the balcony offers a great view of the city.

Great hotel, excellent location
Very spacious and comfortable room. Wide selection for breakfast. Lovely rooftop area with views over Helsinki. Excellent location literally across the road from the central train station and all tram stops. I would definitely recommend this hotel. Some rooms face into the shopping mall so make your room selection carefully.
