I stayed at Hotel Rantapuisto for 3 nights & it was perfect. The superior king room had large windows overlooking the woods & sea - worth it for this stunning view alone, especially at sunset. The room itself was huge, as was the bathroom. Everything was modern & tastefully decorated. Buffet breakfast is included and there was a large selection...

The hotel is a trip down the memory lane: these kind of institutes existed in the merry 1970's! The place has frozen in time, in a nice way, and architecturally-minded visitors will appreciate the interior. The seaview from the bedrooms is relaxing. On an off-season Friday night the hotel was so empty that I had the ladies' common sauna shift...

We did not spend a night at this Hotel, eventhough we were seriously tempted. The hotel features also art exhibitions and we went there a windy evening in January to see an exhibition by the Finnish artist Aini Tolonen, who is also internationally known, and we wanted to end the visit with a dinner at the restaurant in the hotel....

Booked a superior room for mid-Christmas days accompanied by InsideOut escape room game (same location at the hotel but needs to be booked separately online) afterwards had dinner at the restaurant. LOVED IT!! Friendly staff that will go that extra mile (e.g. Handwritten greetings in the room beforehand, reserved table at the breakfast with a sunrise view) for your stay...

A stay in Hotel Rantapuisto is a trip to the '60s congress hotel. It's build 1963 for a training center of Pohjoismaiden Yhdyspankki bank. The place is designed by Ragnar and Martta Ypyä. The design of the hotel is quite unique. Lots of steps everywhere, so it's not really wheelchair or stroller accessible. It was really inconvenient to move with...

Have you ever seen the movie "Shining"? This hotel was like going back to the 60's or 70's. Our room was situated in the "Forest Wing". It was a very long walk from the parking lot. Everything was a little bit dirty and old. Bad pillows, rough bed and cold room. Breakfast was good but didn't save the whole experience....

Personally, I loved my overnight stay here! We booked a superior suite with view to the sea. Absolutely breathtaking to wake up to and well worth it. The room seemed a bit dated (furniture), with a horribly bland mattress, and although the bathroom seemed to look nice at first sight (at night), in the morning I saw quite a bit...

This was our second stay in hotel Rantapuisto. We were here last summer and were quite pleased, so we returned. This time the experience was even more enjoyable. We had a family celebration for 35 people in Kellariravintola (downstairs). We needed good USB access for our computer for the program, that worked perfectly. We also had ordered a special menu...

The lunch and dinner were not very good, and there were no selection of coffee. The location of the hotel was nice, but the rooms in the forest wing were old and dated. The rooms in the main building were a lot better!

I have booked this hotel due to its value for money. It is not too close to the city centre, however it's easily reached by public transport. I would not recommend taxi, as we had to pay a small fortune from Helsinki port to the hotel. If you really are not sure about how to get there by public transport,...
