    Convenient Location: Only two blocks from Helsinki Central Train Station and easy walking distance to museums, to excellent shopping and to the waterfront boat taxi services. The hotel has a good casual dining area with reasonable prices. Our room was small but reasonably comfortable. Security is good and the hotel is in a safe area.

    The hotel has 19 rooms, all on the second floor. There is no elevator and all luggage must be carried up the stairs from the lobby to the room level. There is no exercise area, swimming pool, hot tub or sauna.

    Staff is very good, bartender was the best.

    All was good.

    Very good Irish Pub (live music every night) practically next door: Molly Malone's!!! The staff of the mini-hotel is very friendly, service is sufficient.

    The double bed as advertised (as one of the few within the same budget) existed of 2 single beds and mattresses, very light weight so it was somewhat of a challenge to make love since the beds were drifting apart at the slightest movement... This in combination with the really cramped size of the room makes this mini-hotel fit for single travelers only.

    The location is very convenient to railway station

    Price is too high. Wifi signal in room is very weak whic cannot be able to access internet.

    Location, staff

    Tiny room, very small bed, no shelves in the bathroom - nowhere to place the towels.

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    Location for city center shops and cultural attraction. Access to Central railway station and bus transfer to Vantaa Airport.

    Lack of a lift for baggage handling upstairs. Staff were very helpful however. The lack of effective water control in the shower area leads to water spreading on the floor as far as the toilet bowl. A proper cubicle would fix this. Street noise- the double glazing is not effective enough especially in the reduction of sound from the adjacent clubs (base music pulsing) .

    The position.

    Yes, I have never had the same terrible experience. In fact, when I was to taking the plane at 5 A.M. one of the Hotel presented me another bill regarding two dinner of the days before. It was an error, because I had already payed the food, with cash, and they presented me another bill. It was an error also because I had took a pizza with vegetable the evening before I leav and it wasn't sifged in the new bill. The incredible thing is that I payed in the evening before the day I had the plane and they dosn't say anithing about this additional bill. They say to me only 3 hours before I had my airplane and so musted pay this wrong additional bill. Also, the food of the Iguana resturant is not very good.

    good location. The hotel what to spend the night

    bad look from the rooms which windows leave in a yard

    I loved, that staff arranged breakfast earlier, because of my work-schedule. Breakfast was good, everything was fresh. Especially I appreciated the location.

  • Older travelers
    6.2

    Considering how active and noisy the ground floor cafe was, the room wad surprisingly quite. Location is excellent. I blew a fuse in the middle of the night and they got the lights back on quickly.

    Parking was crazy expensive €38 per day!!! No place to unload a car. Breakfast had very old crusty leftovers. When I asked if I could have something cooked they said yes, then just scrapped the old bits onto a plate. The waitress admitted that the cook did this all the time and just smokes and talks to his friends instead if cooking. Disgusting.

    It was quite comfortable. 10-15min walk from central staton. Close to Ateneum Museum.

    Didn't have many choices in breakfast

  • Group of friends
    9.2

    Really friendly and warm staff, and a small but high-quality breakfast buffet selection. The hotel is older, but the rooms are surprisingly roomy with a little sofa, coffee table, AND nice-sized desk. Just five minutes from the central train station and a heartbeat from the city center.

  • Single

    Aside from being clean and comfortable I especially liked the staff. They were truly helpful, kind and friendly.

  • Single

    Great location, 5min walk to central station and as well to all central locations. Very close to shopping area. Helpful staff. Free WiFi internet, good breakfast.

    For 1 person the room was ok, but for the couple of family it should be larger!
