Vantaa, Finland20667 contributions1371 helpful votes
This 90-year-old hotel is centrally located. We booked a Junior Suite from a sale for 139 euros. The normal price of 250 euros is absolutely too much for this room. Most of the suites have a sauna. These suites are facing to Kluuvikatu. Two other suites are on the courtyard side. One has a jacuzzi (#708) and the other one a small balcony (#804). Our suite was quite spacious. However, there were many dangerous steps: two steps to the sleeping area and one step to the bathroom, and one to the separate toilet. The decor was a little bit outdated. The breakfast served at Memphis restaurant was very average. Many items were finished although there were not many guests.

Our group of 20 stayed here last week and this was the perfect place for us because this hotel is so near to all the places we wanted to visit. Those who wanted to shop just had to walk out the hotel main door and decide which stores to enter to buy items on sale. We could easily walk to the Helsinki Cathedral, even further to the Uspenski Cathedral, President's Palace, Market Square. In the other direction, I walked to Kamppi Chapel of Silence, Oodi the ultra hip Helsinki National Library. Our hotel rooms were spacious, clean, the beds comfortable. The bathrooms were also spacious. This is a popular hotel, people checking-in, people checking-out. Breakfast time can be busy but the buffet breakfast is worth it. Definitely the hotel to stay in the centre of the city when in Helsinki.

Everything was OK! The location of the hotel is super.The reception was friendly and attentive. Breakfast was plentiful and varied enough. The room was clean and quiet but there were not enough shelves in the bedside tables and shower caps in the bathroom.

They find it funny to have parties that can be enjoyed by everyone who wants to sleep. If you want to enter the party, you have to pay. Outrageous. If you can, look for another hotel. In thus one they dont treat you like you should be treated.

It is my first visit in these hotel. It was announced as one of recommended EC presidency's events hotel to stay for delegates. First impression was moderate also. Staff on check in desk was not helpful - waiting time 10 minutes (no line, but also nobody on desk). Room was clean, small, but not very comfortable. But shower and wc room was very small and need repairing and general cleaning (after shower water stay in shower for 1 hour minimum). Some photos added. Breakfast was ok, but staff not prepared for group service - not new meal added in time also no tables was cleaned as soon as needed. What is good? location...
