Excellent place for a stay, unfortunately we had too little time in Helsinki this time. Good value for money, nice spacious rooms and a lovely bathrobe! Have already recommended it for friends, and will surely stay there again.

I wrote in the 'special requests' field that I would like some flowers in my room, since it is my birthday. There was a nice surprise waiting for me at the place - no flowers, but chocolate, small gift and birthday wishes. It was so lovely. Beside that - the breakfast was awesome, the staff friendly and the room super nice.

This is a great little independent Nordic hotel. The style is quite sparse but with all your modern elements. Screen sharing available in your room so you watch Netflix+ from your phone on a big screen. Windows open for fresh air. Breakfast was yummy. I tried the vegan coconut and sweet soup one night and it was delicious. Downside was the Sauna only got to 50 1st night and 40 2nd night. Something is wrong with it. No black tea 2nd day. Although small beds, they were quite cozy, I slept well. Overall great little place that I would recommend for a short stay in Helsinki.

Dear Christina W,

We very much appreciate your feedback. Cool that you liked the soup served in our bar, there is nothing better than hot soup on a chilly evening.
I am sorry that the sauna was not hot enough, we are fixing this as we speak. I hope you return and we can offer you a sauna experiece worth remembering.
