    Very good

    The location is good, close proximity to everything, the facilities are good, they have fitness on site (good enough for my 2 day stay), the restaurant is descent (it is not one star but prices are reasonable for the quality) and the staff was friendly and helpful. Also, the room was modern enough for my taste.

    I have found this throughout my stay in Finland. The rooms although clean could be a bit cleaner. Could do a better job dusting the floor and cleaning the tile in the bathroom. The cleanliness was acceptable, just could have been better.

    Very good

    The view from our room to the harbor and to the city center was nice. Our room (family room) was perfect for our little family (two adults and a small kid). Personnel was very friendly. Breakfast was very good, and because the childrens' playing area was in the restaurant, we (adults) could have our breakfast while watching over our kid playing at the same time.

    We had one dinner at the hotel' s restaurant: the food was not that good what you would have expected at that price. The shift manager of the restaurant was not the nicest we have met. Also cleaning of the room could have been better.

    The hotel is excellent. Nice rooms and a great location very close to Helsinki city centre, the market place and the harbour. Excellent and very friendly and professional staff.

    A minor thing: breakfast is a bit chaotic, but what can you expect - the hotel is immense!

    Restaurant is not prepared to serve hotel guests, if you want to have dinner you need to make reservation one day before, the same with breakfast, manager advice the best is to come for breakfast at 8.00 a.m. on Sunday. Reception personel is not prepared to give basic info for tourists like location of ferry to Tallin, Stockholm

    It is somewhat isolated from the city, but easily accessible by tram.

    Good location on walking distance from main centre of Helsinki.

    Superb

    Large and comfortable room, superb mattress, no noise from the corridor, adjacent rooms or anywhere else.

    Breakfast is a bit chaotic, with guests coming and going all over the place. (Maybe this is inevitable in large hotels, which I normally manage to avoid.) Sit down at a little table, and seconds later some stranger may sit down opposite you. The plus here is that they're mostly businesspeople and are busy and preoccupied, so it's most unlikely that you'll be dragged into a dreary discussion. No storage space. Amazing -- a large room, with a rudimentary wardrobe for hanging things, period. Virtually no shelf space, and no drawers whatever. So whereas we normally unpack anything we might need when staying in a hotel for more than one night, in this hotel room we put a couple of piles of stuff on the desk and as for the rest lived out of our suitcases, spread open on the floor. (At least the floor space sufficed for this.)
