full of character

very comfortable room, great food, nice location
Enjoy this hotel, wouldn't stay any where else in Helsinki. Has real character being converted from an old prison. Rooms large, very comfortable, nice bathroom. Good breakfast, easy walk to harbour. Round 20 minutes walk to city center or a tram is just outside hotel.

wonderful atmosphere

comfort, difference, decor
Loved this hotel for its difference. Old Helsinki goal redecorated. Our room 2 former cells, high windows, curved ceiling. Whole place very atmospheric. Very comfortable nicely decorated room. Great breakfast. Hotel close to harbour and markets. Pleasant easy walk to city centre but also tram right outside hotel. Compared to other Helsinki hotels - reasonably priced.

Experience guaranteed

Location, historical building, great food
Our stay was above expectations, as the location was very good and the hotel room was better than we expected. The breakfast was delicious and staff really really helpful. They provide gluten and lactose free food without any problem. The rooms are pretty and interesting at the same time,

Have you ever stayed in a prison? :)

Interesting design, close to the city and good breakfast
This hotel used to be a prison up until a few years ago, but you definitely do not feel like in one. The rooms are very comfortable and staff very helpful. There was a greeting on the TV in the room with our name, wishing us a great stay (great touch). The hotel is very close to all of the main attractions in Helsinki and yet in a very peaceful area. Buffet breakfast was very good and would definitely recommend it.

Ok - quick and easy for a one-nighter

Clean, friendly, centrally-located
Not bad - but the breakfast room was a little dark - it was a prison though! Thick walls so poor wifi - it was a prison though! Staff had handcuff earrings - guess what!

Convenient and good public transport

Convenient, great modification from jail to hotel and friendly staff.
Very good. Overall a very pleasant experience. Staff were helpful and language was not an issue at all. It was also very convenient to transport with a tram stop right outside the front of the hotel.
