      clean and relaxing stay”

      breakfast, comfort, assistance

      The location is out of town, about 5 kms to middle of town, but there are trams and buses nearby. The setting of parklands is great but it is a working class suburb and women may not feel safe here. It is the seedy side of Helsinki, an otherwise beautiful city, which is interesting to see. If you do not mind the travel it is really a welcoming place with a great breakfast. The rooms are small but the window looking out to the parklands takes up the entire wall.

      near the bus stop

      It is a cheap and clean hotel. You will use public transport to go to the city for 30 mins. Internet is not include in the room rate, you need to pay for that if you want to access internet. Even the hotel prepare one computer at the lobby but it is not convenience.

      Reasonable price, small rooms”

      Location near Pasila, great parking space

      Before my trip I got emailed information from a hotel, because I arrived after 22.00 when hotel receptions will close. Going inside was easy with those instructions. When I arrived my room I notices not so nice smell in a room. Unfortunaly staying a night in my room was not so relaxing as I was hoping, because of smell. I could not change a room because reception was closed, but I am sure that a hotel staff cuold change a room if there was there. Breakfast price 7,50€ is reasonable, even a breakfast buffet itself was not so success for me.

The hotel was clean and comfortable. The hotel staff was friendly,general impression is very good and I would recommend that hotel.

      We stayed in a double-room apartment for 2 nights. The apartment was clean and convenient with a kitchenette and a microwave. We enjoyed staying at this hotel, and can recommend it to anyone visiting Helsinki. Perfect location for sightseeing. Public transport to/from the central is good. Internet is quite expensive 8 euro/day so we didn't use internet at hotel. We really appreciate the staff's help with the booking.

      Long distance from the city center.

      I had lost money and credit card on the first day on my trip and was afraid of the problems during check-in because the Hotel Voucher clearly stated that I should produce the same card. I seeked Agoda's assistance via the Live chat and was assured that everything should be okay. And indeed there were no problems! The staff was very friendly and helpful and it was very convenient that I had payed in advance.

      Lage zwischen Flughafen und Zentrum, Sauberkeit

      Das Hotel eignet sich gut für einen Kurzaufenthalt in Helsinki. Es ist ordentlich an den Nahverkehr zwischen Flughafen und Zentrum angebunden (Flughafenbus hält in der Nähe) und man ist auch von dort schnell in der Innenstadt. Die Zimmer und Betten sind okay, der Service auch. Das Frühstück war nicht so toll und der Preis für W-Lan inakzeptabel. Aber empfehlen kann man es als preiswertes Hotel auf jeden Fall wenn man das Frühstück weglässt.
