Helsinki stopover
Location, cleanliness, staff
Very pleasant, the staff was nice and helpful and the location was great. Itis apparently one of three prisons that has been rebuilt into a hotel in Europe, an interesting feature and theme that could possibly have been played on more in terms of the decor. Overall a pleasant stay.

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.

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.
