Excellent location right opposite the railwaystation. Wonderful architecture. Great looking restaurant and bar. Rooms and corridors have not been renovated for years, but my room was clean and quiet with a nice view to Aikapiha. Part of the personnel are very friendly, part of them do not know how to do their job. If you wish to have a very central location for your Helsinki stay and you like Art Nouveau (Jugend) this is it.
She is an old dame in need of work. Our rooms were nice, clean and had been upgraded. The downstars bar takes you back in history as does the dining room. Conveniently located to everything. Will definately stay there again.
Old splendor. Lacks somethings, like sauna, but you can use the one at the nearby Holiday inn for free. Good breakfast, cool bar. Very good location. A little worn down, but a good choice if you like old school style. Friendly personnel.
