Exceptional 10.0
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.

Best hotel breakfast room in the city!
I happened to pick a very strange time to be in Helsinki. I arrived on Saturday of Mid-summer weekend. The city was as quiet as I had ever seen it. Many restaurants and smaller shops were closed. But, there was plenty of things opened as well. This hotel has the best location in the city, in my opinion. It overlooks the train station and their breakfast room is the best view in the city, in my opinion. Very good breakfasts!

Great location at a great price .
Perfect location in the city next to the train station. Nice and quiet too. Old hotel so rooms are small, but comfortable. WiFi stopped working after a few days . The reception would drop out and then not connect to the hotel login page. Asked at front desk but to no avail. Renovations to the lobby are kind of an eyesore, but it’s not their fault . Staff seemed fine with staring at a wooden wall all day. Very friendly and helpful. Breakfast trays were filled. Good times
