I stayed in the hotel one night with my sister. The location was great and breakfast was good. The room was nice eventhough I didn't like the wall to wall carpet and the surface of beds. The service in the lobby was average.

Location near railway station is very good. When I travel by train, I come usually to Vaakuna. Stayed one night coming from Turku and had two meetings on friday at Finlandia-house. Then back to Kokkola by train.

Nice staff, poor breakfast. Super busy with one elevator. Nice bed and great location. Not so much personality, quite. Parking is tricky to find similar be prepared! Let's of space though once you find it!

We stayed two nights and it was quite O.K. Hotel has a very good location in the very centre of the city.

Little bit old fashion but very great design - look at the lobby. Helsinki seems to be big city from your own balcony or tenth floor restaurant - at night in wintertime. The 10th floor terrace is very good place if you want take pictures, you can walk there nearly round the hotel.
