Happy in Helsinki
Nice hotel in an excellent location for sightseeing. There is a McDonald's literally inside the hotel and a department store, as well. Staff was very nice. I would have liked it if the hotel could have handled a money exchange for us. However, we were able to do this at the railway station just across the street. Breakfast was excellent.

Great location!
This hotel was in a great location. Right next to the airport bus stop and train station. Lots of stores nearby, including supermarkets with a nice salad bar with lots of fixings including smoked salmon, curried chicken, falafels (one day but not the next), Thai and Chinese noodles, etc. Walking distance to the Esplanade, Market Square, etc.

In need of renovation
I'm used to average service in the Nordic region, and this hotel was no different. The bear minimum of service and care, rather rude waiters, etc. The biggest disappointment was the state of the room. Yes, it's clean and rather comfortable, but it is desperately in need to a renovation. It's old, and feels old and unmaintained. It's a really pity because the building itself is gorgeous.
