Great location at a reasonable price

We were in Helsinki for a three day stop over and thought this older style hotel was really conveniently located. It is close to airport transport, shops, restaurants and the main sights. We easily walked to everything we wanted to see in the city. The hotel is on a "no traffic" street so it is quiet. It has lots of natural light and we had a decent sized bathroom. We also enjoyed using the sauna! The staff were friendly and helpful. Late check out was not a problem and having breakfast included in the tariff was terrific. We would stay there again and certainly recommend it.

Try the salmon soup at the waterfront markets and for other "local" food and some design history, try Kosmos - the reindeer and the wild duck are both very nice.

Great Centrally Located Hotel

This hotel is a 5-7 minute walk from the Train Station and bus stops, very centrally located. After stays in several Scandinavian hotels we were overwhelmed at the huge size of the room. However the bathroom did have a problem with the door to the shower, it did not open very wide due to the towel rack, a larger person would have had a problem. The staff were very friendly and helpful. This hotel is situated on a pedestrian only road and is a pleasant place to walk, or sit in the outside cafe chairs and "people watch".

Take time to walk down to the park, about 4 blocks away. It is a very entertaining place. Also the Cathedral and waterfront market are easily within walking distance.

This hotel provided a large room

This hotel provided a large room and a large bathroom - when compared to similar hotels in other countries. The bathroom floor was heated which was unusual - at least from my experience. Breakfast was of a good standard. I would recommend the hotel as a good and convenient place to stay.
