Run as a business. No heart.

This is a BIG hotel, always queues at check in desk. Foyer always full of bus tours. Very impersonal but efficiently run. Felt like a small fish in a big sea. Room clean, well stocked and quiet. Windows dont open (7th Floor) but A/C very efficient. Quiet room, extensive and tasty breakfast. Sadly didn't have time to visit the pool. Central location. Ideal for our short trip to Helsinki.

Ideal location if you want to

Ideal location if you want to leave Helsinki by plane as the hotel is about 200m from the train station where the Finnair airport bus leaves from. The room was a good size and very clean. The breakfast was also of a very high standard. Free wifi in the room as well, once you get the password from reception. The hotel is also walking distance from the port if arriving by ferry but probably not if you have heavy luggage or suitcases.

The hotel is a bit tired, which

The hotel is a bit tired, which is understandable. The attitude of the front desk staff is in need of a major overhaul - most are not very welcoming at all, and seem grumpy about actually having to interact with customers. The fact that the hotel is fully booked (or close, since, despite claims, there were still rooms available - for a fee) does not excuse not honouring requests made far in advance. The hotel may view these (eg, non-smoking, one bed vs two) as 'wishes', but customers do not.

Staff were very polite. Aircon

Staff were very polite. Aircon was not working in room but front desk was very responsive and brought a small desk fan to room. Wide selection at breakfast. Centrally located to go out and explore.
