the room was quite noisy and small. Breakfast was boring and conventional... like such as a normal boring and conventional hotels. The staff was very pleasant and the service went well :) ...and view of the room was fine. However, we are pleased with the hotel and the holiday was a success! Thank You :D

My room was upgraded to a superior room, free of charge. This was extremely nice. Staff was friendly and helpfull. You can see however that the hotel is not "new", but it is clean. The airconditioning in the room made quite a lot of noise.

Small single room for single person. Everything I needed were there anyway. Good bed and fresh air. Not too noisy for a late summer Saturday night even though I had the window open a bit. Excellent location in the heart of the city. very friendly reception personnel.

Excellent location close to everything in downtown, good service, but cleaning could be done better. The bath was dirty and floor wasn't cleaned properly. Frans & Emilie had delicious food (dinner), breakfast was ok.

Dear hileh, Thank you for your recent stay with us, we appreciate your review very much! I'm very happy that you enjoyed your stay with us! Frans & Amélie is rather new restaurant, as it was opened this March. Their menu changes a few times a year, so I promise you that there is more deliciousness to come! We hope...

Clean hotel with excellent location in the heart of Helsinki. Quality sleep and good breakfast. Professional personnel. Parking is a problem in downtown. Parking hall (P-Kluuvi) is near but quite expensive. 36€ / day.

Really small room. Breakfast was ok. Location the only thing thing that would make me consider staying there again. Right next to the main shopping street and only three minutes walk to the railway station and harbour.

Reviewed 6 September 2016

You could everywhere see, that the hotel is not a new one. You could see for example in the furniture, that they had been used. The rooms very very small and the dining room was noisy. But the situation in the middle of the city was perfect.

Probably best located hotel in Helsinki. Everything is close, but place is still calm. Metro station is next to the hotel so you can go all around with that or walk couple of minutes and travel with bus/trails.

Perfect location in downtown Helsinki; good price/quality ratio; excellent breakfast buffet. Easy to access; romms are average but comfortable and with all you need for your stay. Rooms are silent. Decor is basic, but OK.
