The hotel has a great location and lots of common facilities and comfy seats. Fron desk friendly. Room was clean and tidy with fresh colorscheme. Extremely comfortable bed + bedding. As a pillow lover I needed more and easily got 2 extra pillows from the front desk. Minus for no amenities in the bathroom (only upon request from the fron... More

It's an excellent choice for someone who is travelling by train and flight as it's located right next to the Central Railway station which is also where the Finnair Aiport Express bus stop is. It's very centrally located otherwise modest building but the rooms where a good size, quite, clean with comfortable beds. Serves well for business travelers as well.... More

I stayed there two days one night on transit at the end of October 2016. I seldom write reviews but I think this hotel is a gem and I want to let everyone know. Firstly, the location is really good. From the airport, you can take the Finnair shuttle into town and it ends at the Central Train Station and... More

I was in and out of this hotel in one night. I ate at the restaurant and the selection was good. Breakfast was quick and well stocked.

We spent one reward night last weekend there. The lady in the reception had a very nice and friendly smile when she welcomed us. And upgraded us to the business suite. Then we smiled also.

Stay couple nights here in June. Hotel is very good located in the city center on the sea side. We had business meeting there and I suppose that the hotel is very good for such meetings. One issue to mention is the friendly personal and excellent service.

This place is great: the location is excellent, the staff is friendly and super-helpful, particularly the lovely woman running the downstairs bar. The room is very clean and tidy, modern and comfortable. If you're used to huge rooms you might feel its a little small but its no shoebox. The other thing i love is hotels like this that really...

Picked this hotel as we were catching the train from the central train station to St Petersburg. Located adjacent to the station. Easy to access all the central tourist sites by foot. The room was clean and relatively spacious. Breakfast area was large and airy. Definitely a good location if catching a train or coming in from airport via train.
