The hotel has a very nice location right outside the bus station and 50 meters to the train station. City center and shops, restaurants and clubs just around the corner. Regardless that the hotel is right outside the bus station it’s quiet and you hardly can hear the traffic and sounds from buses, very well! The room was very nice...

Thank you so much for your stay and for your observing feedback. We do have plans to change opening hours at the lobby and in the restaurant in the future due to the high demand. We have spoken about the quality of scrambled eggs as well within the kitchen team. We do our very best to keep the quality high...

It was very cold in the room in September, you can neither regulate the temperature of the air flow nor switch off the condition system completely. They brought an electric heater to the room on my request, but it was still very cold because of the conditioning that was still flowing down cold air directly to the bed. Also in...

Vantaa, Finland
Reviewed 21 November 2014

Good and quite new hotel. Very central location next to railway station and i.e. taxi station at front door as well as direct bus service to/from airport. Basic double-rooms are comfortable, clean and quiet. Good breakfast, but not as versatile as at Scandic's (which is on my opinion main competitor in Helsinki). Small gym available.

Why comfort : Location was very central, there are bus terminal (not noisy at all), supermarkets, shops, restaurants, tram stops. Breakfast buffet spread and dining room with floor to ceiling windows were satisfactory. Room was very clean, bed comfy, toilet with bathtub. However, since it's a modern minimalist hotel, we'd better bring our own bubble bathing soap or favorite shampoo...

Picked this hotel because the airport bus stops here and from that point of view was ideal. Also centrally located to most of Helsinki's attractions, including restaurants, cafes and shops. Nice, spacious room and good service at reception.

The location of the hotel is about as central as it can get - next to the railway station, right in the center of Helsinki. The room was good, the breakfast had everything you need. The central location also means a lot of noice from the traffic, ear plugs are almost necessary. But the hotel is overpriced - I paid...

Great location, next to the main railway station and the bus transfer to the airport. New (ish) hotel , no fancy stuff here. Quiet and a good breakfast. Forget asking for a view, it will be a bus terminal. The hotel is designed for a comfortable stay in right in the centre: ticks all boxes for an over night stay...

Stayed for one night only. Hotel has one of the most central locations in Helsinki. Rooms are nice, comfortable and not too spacious.
