                Location, comfortable beds

                Its too expensive for what you're getting. Breakfast is very basic. Toilet bowl was dirty. Sokos Hotel Vaakuna wld be recommended instead.

                Fantastic location close to the harbor, all the major sites, and shopping; clean room; quick and friendly check-in; located on a quiet street near Cafe Frazer and other cafes/restaus (no traffic/cars on this street); nice breakfast included.

                5.8

                The hotel is 5 minutes walk to the railway station, which is very convenient. The room was ok, but need refurbishment. You can use sauna for free, but you need to check their schedule.

                Breakfast choice is very limited.

                Great location, friendly and professional staff, good restaurants in the hotel and nereby

                The cleaning of the room could have been better

              • Single
                8.8

                It is located in the heart of the City. The Finnish National Gallery, the University, a beautiful promenade of canal, Lutheran and Orthodox churches, and other sightseeing are very close. Quite comfortable. There's a good cuisine in the Hotel restaurant. My single standard room was good. Friendly atmosphere.

                There weren't slippers in the room.

              • Older travelers
                7.8

                Central location, large quiet room and relaxed staff.

                Too many tourists, parking difficult, breakfast time chaotic.

              • Single
                9.6

                Large room. Clean room. Nice breakfast (but not Salmon...)

                Use of Sauna was divided in two time slots (men and women) which made it very inconvinient to choose the time to use it.
