The hotel is a little tucked away from the main city centre or the harbour so that you really do have the benefit of the view. But it is just right and a short away from all that the heart of the city has to offer. A small very efficient, courteous, hospitable and multi-tasking team will make sure your stay... More

The food was very good, tasty and service was perfect. The location inside has a cosy look and feel, which makes the food taste even better.

This hotel is a winner. Beautiful, austere rooms. Incredibly helpful service (how about, "We'll have coffee, juice and croissants ready for you when you leave at 5am for your flight") Great breakfasts. Location close by downtown but a few blocks away from the clatter. Can't miss here.

This establishment consists in fact of two restaurants. One in the basement (Kellarikrouvi) and one on street level (Fabian). And note; they are both very good. I like Fabian especially for the atmosphere. Part of the restaurant is furnished almost like a living room and the whole restaurant (which is quite small) is cosy. Service is excellent and food usually... More

Went for a 3-course dinner - there was a suitable selection and a they serve quite many wines by the glass! I guess the cuisine is international/Finnish - I enjoyed Blinis with löjrom for starter, and they were magnificent. Entrecote bearnaise was above average, and cooked rare as requested - quite enjoyable. Alaska ice cream and merinque for dessert was... More

The food is first class. We opted for the reindeer and it was melt in the mouth meat that I wanted to savour forever, the... More

During my recent stay at Hotel Fabian, I also visited restaurant Fabian. The name comes from the street they both are situated on (Fabianinkatu). I had a house burger and it was one of the best ones I have ever had. The meat was perfectly cooked and the sauce was really delicious, it had a hint of horseradish, which made... More
