This is a great little hotel. Unusual in that is above a coffee shop and restaurant, and only has 16 rooms, but with pleasant attentive service and an outstanding location. You're in downtown Helsinki, just a block away from the central rail station and the bus stop for the Finnair transportation to the airport. Most of central Helsinki including the harbor is within walking distance. Lots of options for shopping and dining with no need for a car and public transportation is just out the door if you need it. Rooms are not particularly large, but very comfortable. Should note that since this is such a small location it does not have an elevator so you will need to negotiate steps. Super breakfast is included in the room rate, and a meal we had in the restaurant in the evening was also very good. In summary this is simply a very pleasant place to stay in a very pleasant city. Everything in Helsinki just has a comfortable feeling. Not a lot of world known tourist sites (don't miss the Fortress of Suomenlinna) but with many beautiful old cut stone buildings in a very clean city, a place that you feel good visiting and wandering about. A great stop off to wind down after visiting a busy place like London - I'd go back in a heartbeat.
