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.

This hotel is situated right next to the main Helsinki train station. From here, you can get a train directly to either airport, or a finnair coach to the airport terminal. Being in the city centre means your'e close to the port, shops and park. The staff here are very friendly, as you'd expect from a worldwide company like IHG....

I have stayed at this hotel several times. It used to have an excellent breakfast, including American pancakes and maple syrup. These days the breakfast is highly average. The room was against the street and quite noisy because of the traffic. The cleaning was acceptable. The location just beside the main train station is very convenient. I will undoubtedly stay...

Good location, next to rail station and bus terminal. Spare and clean, friendly staff. Excellent breakfast and good dinner in restaurant which isn't open all the time but you can order from the menu and it will be served in the bar. Walking distance to lots of tourist attractions and lots of shopping.

失望中既失望破壞旅程原來美好既心情:( 再被我們選擇一次都絕對不會入住, 更不值這價錢.有很多星級沒比它高都比它好! I am usually to write good things rather than the bad, as I travel a lot and I did not have such bad experience so far.But, this hotel made me one, the only one! Firstly, the staff is unknowledgeable! I did twice check-in regarding my traveling schedule. For the first time, it took 15 minutes to wait!...
