    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.

    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.

    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.

    Lovely old prison converted to a Hotel”
    Lovely hotel with character, fantastic food
    this hotel was a novel experience being a converted prison with many of the features still intact, the staff were friendly and helpful, the restaurant was really cozy and the food was great, we had the best burger there and the breakfast was great with an extensive variety of food. the rooms were modern and clean with large bathrooms. the location was ok, it was a little out of the city, which we liked as we didn't want to be in the centre of the hustle and bustle, but there is a tram stop right outside the hotel that runs frequently into the city which is about 5-10mins away on the tram or 20mins to walk. would definitely recommend and stay again.

    A Nice Prison Converted Hotel”
    Nice Breakfast, Good Converison of the Prison to Hotel, Interesting interior, Worth for Money
    the location of the hotel is acceptable, it's just 10 minutes on tram 4 or 4t from helsinki city centre, the tram stop is just in front of the hotel. since i traveled to stockholm by viking line, and it is just 10-minutes walk to the viking pier for boarding. the breakfast is really nice, especially the coffee and the sun-shine egg. the most interesting feature of this hotel is the interior design, all features are pretending for jail, which reflected its original usage of the building. all the staff are wearing prison uniform, chairs and tables, everything that makes you feel you are in the jail.
