We had to check in at short notice due to a failed AirBnB. We spent 7 nights. Reasonably spacious, very clean room, good breakfast, good staff on Reception. Everything that one could want. Thoroughly recommended.

Had to isolate for several days before being allowed into factory to repair our machine. Covid and lack of people had closed the restaurant but gave to say Riika Tea Jan Miko Yenni helped to make it a really enjoyable rest up. Nothing too much trouble if it didn’t break any rules. Bedroom excellent loved my shower and perfect daily cleansing. Thanks guys I’ll be back! But not before your wedding Tea....good luck !!

I made the booking with my IHG points. The standard room was 20.000 points. As being an IHG Platinum member, we got an upgrade to an Executive room. The room size is the same but Executive rooms are located on the top 9th floor. Also, the room is better equipped. It has bathrobes, Nespresso machine, complimentary water, and chocolate. On arrival, I noticed that over half of the minibar items are missing. There were just wines and spirits left. For my IHG Platinum drink voucher, there were not many choices. The hotel bar was not open yet. Vouchers were just for the minibar. In the morning, we found out that there was only one bathrobe for two persons. Otherwise, the rooms are stylish and practical. Also, the room was clean. The breakfast was served in the bar. It had nearly the same standards as the restaurant breakfast before. The price was 15 euros per person.

Dear Mikael F, Thank you for the review. Your stay was definitely affected by some Murphy's law. I am very sorry for all the problems you faced during your stay. Unfortunately with us the Elite vouchers are only usable for the minibar, as there is a different company running the bar and restaurant. Luckily we now have the bar open. All rooms on the 9th floor should have a bathrobe in the bathroom, and another in the closet. I am sorry this was not the case with your room and will forward your review to our housekeeping. I do hope the points you received as compensation for these problems brought you joy. See you again soon! Best regards, Riikka Shift Manager

After a few stays here post Covid19 I have only been dissappointed. I have been given rooms that do not meet the basic stadards and the staff attitude is certainly "apologetic" but does not come off very genuine. I have had rooms with urine stain in the toilet and bath room, dirty towels, minibars that are empty(left to the customer to restock it!) etc so buyer beware. could potentially come with issues if you dont notice yourself. This used to be a very clean and friendly hotel what happened? for a quick one night stay this is the only IHG option at the moment. Hopefully hotel managment will start to pay more attention to their processes in these heightened times to the cleaning and service needs & requirments.

I stayed here for a week and a half for a work trip. The rooms are all very modern and clean. The public areas of the hotel are very well kept. The location has easy access to public transportation. The staff were all very helpful and met all of my needs. The breakfast buffet was excellent.
