1. Architecture/Building 2. Comfort 3. Location
We simply love this hotel. It definitely has a character, being an old building, and much of the original decorations were kept. In addition, the hotel ensured that the luxury and modern comfort is not compromised. The hotel is in a great location, directly opposite the train station, and would b a perfect hotel for a quick stop-over in Helsinki. The breakfast selection was great. Overall, we had a really great stay.

confortable stay in art nouveau...
The rooms are very nice furbished, with brand new furniture which petrifies the art nouveau style. The location is excellent, just in front of the railway station and the airport bus terminus.
The hotel policy of paying for any "extras" is quite ridiculous.

Convenient and charming
Location, comfort, charm
It delightful. A very lovely, charming hotel situated right in front of the main railway station, so coming from Vantaa airport was easy (although seemingly frightening at first). Wished we could have stayed longer to explore more of the city.

Historical, pricey for value.
Location and historical ambience.
Bathroom was too small; faucet leaked; floors were dirty; windows lacked privacy curtain; noises from lift.

Do not believe the photo...
Simple breakfast, Closed location from metro station, convenient public transportation.
Do not believe the photo in the website. That is not your room. If you want to stay the room as photo, you need to pay more addtional charge to upgrade the room class.

Perfect for Helsinki visit
Just across the street from central train station. Lovely old building. Quiet, even though it is on the main road and adjacent to shopping district.
If we could have stayed longer :)

The breakfast buffet was very good. Also liked the décor which suited the hotel style. Position was excellent - right next door to the bus station. We also found the staff very helpful and pleasant.

Great hotel in central Helsinki
Good location, helpful staff, nice breakfast
Situated in central Helsinki, easy to reach from the airport and only a short walk away from many attractions. Also very close to Market Square where you can take a ferry to Fortress of Suomenlinna. Room was clean and comfortable. Staff was very helpful, allowing us to keep our luggage at the hotel even after check-out.

Old world charm at its best
Location, charm, breakfast buffet
Despite the fact that renovations were in full swing, we still had a wonderful night here. The room was quite spacious and full of charm - a nice change from the average chain hotel. The location is unbeatable, right next to the central station and airport bus stop, and within very easy walking distance of shops, restaurants and museums. The buffet breakfast was excellent, with a wide variety of good quality food. The free wifi was fast and reliable in our room. All in all, excellent value for money.
