Totally decent basic chain-hotel for which you can usually get a good price quote. Nothing exceptional, but everything works. Rooms are a bit worn, but totally fine. Good bed and sleep quality. Minibars are empty, so remember to get your beers from the R-kiosk across the street. Breakfast adequate. Pro tip - they have a tiny carage for parking. It...

Well positioned hotel close to city centre, restaurants and cafes. Nice chilled out vibe in the lounge-bar-restaurant area makes it a great place to be after a busy day. Definitely not a luxury hotel but great value and perfect for short stays and city breaks. Highly recommended

Location to Länsisatama harbour quite convenient, I got there by tram. Got a restful sleep before weekend trip to Tallinna, I felt exhausted after a long bus journey to Helsinki. Not a luxury hotel, but the atmosphere is nice. The room was a little bit chilly, altough it was not a very cold weather outside.

The venue is not so far from the town Centre, one can actually walk. It's closer to trump stations and absolutely peaceful. I like the view from my bedroom. Very vintage European buildings. Food was great and customer service absolutely excellent.

It's a very good hotel to stay when travelling to Helsinki with great location and nice suroundings. It's, however, a bit difficult with finding the parking lot (due to the "oneway streets" in the centre of Helsinki.
