    The hotel was really confortable and the staff very helpful.

    Superb

    I really appreciated the quality-price ratio, hotel location, free wi-fi zone, good price for garage.

    May be the water supply system need to be repaired, there was a strange smell in bathroom.

    Exceptional

    The location of the Hotel was perfect since it was just off Kamppi Tube Station (only one stop from the Centra railway Station where trains and the airport link bus end). A very comfortable Hotel with very friendly staff which did their utmost to accommodate you without pushing too much. I certainly will stay there again when coming back to Helsinki.

    I cannot complain about anything.The only thing I might complain is that the curtains in the rooms do not actually cover the windows as much and there are no blinds.Although you have a very good privacy, in the summer like now Finland has all day round sunshine which means that you do not have dark enough rooms to sleep at night.However, being from the uk, this was hardly a problem but much more a benefit since we do not have too many sunshine in Uk anyway and have to make most of it when abroad.Specifically about the hotel, staff and accommodation in itself, I have no complains and would be surprised if someone has.

    Cleanliness and peace.

    AC was not working properly and I felt room temperature was a bit high. It was nosiy outside so opening a window didn't work. All other things were fine. So, overall it was good.

    Sauna on the 6th floor was dirty.

    Good value for money. The rooms and hotel as a whole were nicely decorated and clean. Breakfast - had a good range. Location - is very central, so easy to walk to most places around town. Overall I was very satisfied with my stay at the hotel and would stay there again in the future.

    I do not have any complaints about my stay.
