Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This shiny steel ball, 3 meters in diameter, is located at the entrance of the big round building called Ympyrätalo in Finnish. The entrance is on the side of the Hakaniemi marketplace.

The minimalist but striking artwork was made by sculptor Hannu Siren in 1985 to complement the building designed in the 1960s by his parents Heikki and Kaija Siren who were architects.
