                  Location (1 minute walk to railway station), close to rock temple, cathedral, market, harbour, Stockmann. Sauna

                • Single
                  10.0

                  Great location, in the center, clos to transportation (2min) to train & bus stations. Graet view from the balcony (9 floor)

                • Group of friends
                  10.0

                  The old decor that has been preserved in the premises makes the difference, which I appreciate.

                • Group of friends
                  8.2

                  I requested the room with balcony - it was so cozy and we enjoyed talking in white night on the balcony! Also, breakfast was served not only at the restaurant but also summer beranda. Very nice for starting the day with fresh feeling.

                  The hotel has good sauna but working only limited time. If it's open during daytime, especially weekend, it should be very appreciated.

                • Single
                  7.8

                  location of the hotel is excellent. And the staffs are very kind.

                  The room (for single person) is a bit small, and the toilet is too small.

                • Group of friends
                  10.0

                  The staff is very friendly and once you leave the hotel, you can leave your lugguage in the storage at no extra cost. Fantastic location, next to the train and bus station

                  I've been 6 years before in this hotel and during my first trip, everything was better except the staf that was and still is very friendly and helpful. The room was nice but not so good as the room I used the first time. It is a little bit strage that you can't get the room before 15:00. One big issue: I made a reservation for a double room superior and in the description of the room; you can read that it should be equiped with a large double bed!!!!!!! But instead of that you get a room with two single bed put together!!!! It is not the same thing!!!!!!!!!!

                  Breakfast over the snowy cityscape was a treat. Helpful staff when we arrived in the early hours after a delay.

                  It was great to have the opportunity to get the room immediately on arriving to Helsinki (at 10.00) and stay in the room till 14.00 at the day of departure. This friedly attitude to the tourists travelling by Allegro train is really remarkable. We shall advise our frieds to book this hotel and shall book it ourselves in the future.

                  It seemed sometimes it was a bit chilly in the restourant and in the room.

                  It was located at the center of the city, and it's very convenient.

                  The top floor's restaulants was crowded.下の予約

                  The location of these hotel is very convient for city-tour,and a lot of shops nearby.

                  1,The breakfest is not so good as the other 4 star hotel I have been,it is even worse than the others I can say. 2,The bed is so soft and everthing inside is so old ,it is almost the same level in Russia.3.it is a little bit noisy even in the winter .I could not image how it will be in the summer without the condition.

                  The location was excellent, easy walking distance to shops and harbour. The staff were friendly and very helpful. We arrived too early for book in but could store our luggage both on our arrival and after we'd checked out. Breakfast was fantastic - a huge variety and very tasty.

                  The room was very hot as we were facing west and the air conditioning was not very effective.

                  The location was fantastic and the room was clean with a great view.

                  The elevators were extremely small. It took three trips to get all our luggage to our room and was difficult to catch the elevators.
