I booked this hotel for a quick one night sleep. When I selected, positives were central location in Helsinki city and car parking's adjacency, locating right on the backyard of the hotel. And those really remained the only positives.
The hotel interiors are very Nordic and very basic style. Some Aalto design furniture does not really make it any cosier... Rooms are small and extremely basic. Bathroom was the smallest I have ever seen - actually, can not be any smaller :) - and was not clean, some hairs on the floor. Breakfast was the basics with bread and hot oatmeal.
Room price was relatively high compared to quality. Can not recommend.
