We stayed at this hotel for two nights, one being prior to joining a tour. The room was satisfactory and a reasonable size. The bed was comfortable and the bathroom adequate. The hotel is right next to the Central Rail Station and where the airport bus terminates. The area in the immediate vicinity is a little seedy, but we felt...

This hotel has one of the best locations in the city. And despite of that, it is very quiet. Other than that, all is very average here. But the breakfest is poor: sortiment is nothing special and the quality is almost low. You would epect more ina hotel like this.

It was a great experience staying in this hotel as part of the group tour I took. No question about the cleanliness of the hotel. The shopping center with big supermarket and restaurants is just across the street. I cannot complain with the free breakfast buffet, I enjoyed it.

Modern hotel in a great location. The hotel is clean and looks new. It is located next to the train station and bus depot. It's just a few minutes walk to the waterfront. My room faced the bus depot, but I did not hear any noise. The soundproofing is amazing. The Finnair bus to/from the airport stops 100 yards from...

The location is very good. With the airport bus just minutes from you, it is very convinent if you have an early flight to catch. Good spread of breakfast. Free wifi in hotel. Rooms are clean and spacious for two. Except the room I took was facing the mid afternoon sun which made the room really warm. Windows are sealed...

Boston, Massachusetts
Reviewed 28 September 2014

This hotel is centrally located in Helsinki, right next to the central railway station, and express bus service to the airport. The staff are friendly and helpful, and the lobby lounge is comfortable. A very short walk away is a metro station, tram stops, department stores, the main post office, and a grocery store. Very convenient place to stay.

We stayed for two nights in this hotel. Our room was clean and large enough. In the sixth floor there were no noise from outside, though bus stops and the railway station is very near. Breakfast was fresh, typical Scandinavian one with a good porridge. The location was best possible because we used the airport bus. The staff was friendly...
