I picked the hotel to be close to the location of next day's meeting and was not let down. It is outside the city centre but that is a 15 min walk or 4 min Taxi ride. Staff is friendly and helpfull. Rooms have thick curtains to keep light out during summer (nearly always light) and breakfast buffet has plenty... More

Hotel is located 20 .. 30 min walking distance from Helsinki downtown (or few minutes with Metro). Nearby has one shopping mall with adequate amount of stores and some restaurants. Hotel itself is standard quality, rooms ok with good beds. Rooms are also quite quiet. Breakfast very usual, not as good as in Crowne Plaza (same chain) but ok. Staff... More

I stayed here with a tour group on 5/21/14. The air cond. was not working and the outlets were not working. I had to use an extension cord into the bathroom to use my Cpap machine.

Appreciate the positive reception, even offered a little something for my gold membership, room very basic, but nice and with good amenities as well as coffee/the cooker.

The hotel is located at the western area of Helsinki which is closer to Espoo. As we were with a car, this hotel was picked for easier parking. The room is fair. But the kettle was not cleaned with smelly tea inside. That made us uncomfortable.. Compared with the one at City, we prefer that instead of this.

I stayed here for several nights recently on a vacation to Helsinki. I'll break this review down into a handful of categories: Location - It's not downtown, so some people might think "I can't do that." I looked at it as an opportunity to explore the relatively "local" scene (as opposed to all the tourist stuff). Great choice on my... More

Very convenient for business travel. Might get crowded at breakfast time when large groups accomodated. This also complicates last minute checkout when in a rush. Shoppimg center nearby, vicinity provides opportunities for nice walk or morning jogging.
