Helsinki vibes @ 8th floor room
Location is perfect for city experience, during my stay great Nordic/Finnish breakfast included for the price at rooftop restaurant and sauna is important to me. I also like 1950 architecture. Food/dinner is affordable at 10th floor.

Not worth the price
I was very excited about staying at this historical place and I have dreamed about it for years. I was sorely disappointed. The elevators were small and took forever to get on. The phones in the room don't work. You need to go downstairs to talk to anyone. I didn't know this at the time, but I swiped my card to get into the sauna and i couldn't get in because the lock battery was dead. It took me an hour to get someone to help and it was too late. The ac wouldn't go cooler than 19C which with hot flashes, I could not sleep. I couldn't open the windows. The breakfast at hotels at the airport is better. They picked my plate up full as soon as I set it down to walk away. This happened 3 times before i asked someone to stop throwing away full plates of food. I also lost my table 3 times. The bed was soft and the view was spectacular, but thewes were my only positive things to say.
