Hip, arty hotel
The hotel is quite hip and arty - we enjoyed the rooms on the 6th floor that were open to visit! Our room was small but comfortable, and breakfast was excellent. Staff were also very friendly, and the bar was great too. Good location for walking to most of Helsinki, and the bus to Seurasaari stops right next to the hotel.

This was my wife and I’s first visit to Helsinki and we couldn’t have chosen a better hotel within our budget. The entire staff and the hotel offerings were outstanding. Not to mention so is the hotel’s location. I would definitely stay here again with f needed.

Hotel was nice enough foe the price range. The front desk was always really friendly and helpful. Stayed there 2 seperate weekends and wished they had made it clear that breakfast was included. Didn't realize until the second visit, skipped it the first time...and it was a nice spread!
