Wonderful stay in Helsinki
We had a great stay here for 2 nights. We had a large room, very comfortable bed, great shower and amenities. Breakfast was excellent. We arrived just before 9 on a Sunday and kitchen stayed open to cook us a hamburger. Tram stop right outside. Would definitely stay here again

Great hotel and a cool setting
Great location and room with friendly and helpful staff. Short walk to shopping and restaurants
Michael, us1 night trip
Exceptional 10.0
A unique experience
I’m giving it a 5 also because it’s a unique experience to stay in a former prison that has been exquisitely designed as a contemporary hotel. The breakfast was just a 4 because of the poor coffee. However, the excellent reception staff made us cappuccinos to enjoy with our breakfast.

Great Hotel near city centre attractions
It's a beatiful modern hotel, easy walking distance to city centre attractions. Beds are comfortable, the staff is friendly, awesome breakfast buffet. We've tried their restaurant for dinner, and the food was delicious! Highly recommended.

Probably the coolest hotel in Helsinki
I can’t say enough good things about this hotel and the staff. It was a top-notch experience from start to finish. Check-in was quick and easy, the room was comfortable, the complimentary breakfast was wonderful, and the concierge got us a same-day reservation at Savoy (a 2-Star rated Michelin restaurant). I’d come back to Helsinki just to stay here again!

Must Stay in Helsinki!!! Best experience!
Stay was amazing, they provide special coupons for the and expedia member for each night, and the staff is super cool and helpful. And special mention for manager "RITA" which truly won our heart with her hospitality and special care for the breakfast menu. Never experienced such great hospitality in other hotel. As this hotel is converted from a jail, but based on our experience we would love to go in such a jail more often :). Fully recommended to all the people visiting helsinki.
