It may have a kitchenette but you are unable to cook, only warm up. Was told that I needed to ensure that dishes were washed and dryed prior to departure but no towel or sink plug was provided, had to request one. Photos have been touched up to make the rooms look new which they aren't. Day receptionist was very...

It's just sad, how this accomodation wasn't really as good as expected according to the ratings. No one even wasn't surprised or upset, that things are broken or nasty in the rooms. It's confusing. It would be nice to clean rooms and make repairments. Or at least there need to be person, who check rooms before people arriving - if...

Superb location to tram station and to suomenlinna, however mattress is old. Service from the reception is good and helpful. Kitchen utensils are clean but stove is a bit dirty. The hotel room is a bit oudated need a renovation soon. Overall a good stay and worth the value given that location and surrounding area is quiet.

Spent two nights in the hotel in March. Easily accessible from the train station by tram and only 10min walk from the heart of the center. The hotel rooms are studio apartments so there was plenty of space. Kitchen corner (coffee maker, kettle, microwave and fridge included), comfy double bed and tidy bathroom. The place was calm and quiet, no...

Great position to stay in Helsinki, close to trams and amenities. From booking on line to getting keys etc was very easy and organize. Apartment was very spacious and great to be able to do self catering. Havin laundry facilities was an extra bonus albeit in the apartment block next door.

Though it was in good location, the hotel cleaning was under standard. They'll not do daily cleaning plus wonth clean out trashes daily. It is understandable that you'll not chagr towels and bed linen daily cut cleaning could have beem done daily. There were moles on shower floors and on shower doors and it's still there after there cleaning service....

Lovely place to stay, very conveniently located just outside the city center. Trams 4 and 5 will drop you pretty much at the doorstep after a 10 minute journey from the main train station. Room was everything I needed it to be; warm, clean and quiet. Sauna on the ground floor, free to use for guests was a fantastic bonus....
