Disappointed five star hotel

A bit disappointed with the standard room which has no kettle, and much of the things are out of order. Such as coldness fridge, lightness lamp and unfunctioned telephone, every time I found anything wrong should go to the reception becos can't contact them in the room. Finally we requested to change another room though it is smaller for 3 people because we didn't want to find out more broken facilities. That's the worst hotel I experienced in this Finland trip.

Convenient location

Have stayed here before in 2009 and was happy enough to come back. Hotel is well located for main railway station and airport bus comes quite close. Staff speak excellent English and are helpful. The hotel is also close to major shops such as Stockmann and the tram stop is also close.

Time-saving tip: Short walk from hotel

Helsinki is a good stop over for Australians going to Europe. It is only 10 hours from Tokyo, Finnair is a good Airline and a lot of Finns in Helsinki speak good English.
