The advertising for the Hotel is an example of Bait and Switch. 330 rooms, contemporary dining and restaurant. Normally, I would never stay at an airport Hotel, but due to an early flight the next morning and the presence of a contemporary restaurant I figured why not have a good meal, a nice evening before bed and then wake up at the airport. The restaurant has 200+ seats, but the kitchen is small and can only produce 10 meals an hour. The HVAC equipment is undersized and unbalanced, the smell of burnt oil was evident even at the bar which is almost as far away as one can get from the kitchen. After 90 minutes waiting for our meals, multiple course chef specials, I left the restaurant and went back to my room; my wife stayed since we had been fighting about what to do the entire evening. Close to 10 pm my wife returned to the room and 10 minutes later our food was delivered via room service. I refused the food and sent it back. How can I be expected to enjoy a multiple course meal served all at once at 10:15 pm? My evening was ruined. It was a lose / lose situation. All I got was no dinner, no food, and marital discord. Needless to say the conjugal joy I was expecting after a good meal never materialized. The geniuses who put a tiny kitchen in a big restaurant in a big hotel need to be fired. The people who do the ad work should be jailed. Avoid this Hilton, stay in the city for a good meal and a fun evening.
clean room, good design, kind staff, nice breakfast. access from air port to the hotel is not so kind. I lost the way to the hotel on the way to the hotel because of missing laveling. Also the way to the hotel was narrow and something like working road (?).
convenient to airport, beautiful, new and clean rooms, quiet, helpful staff Dining was way too expensive. Would have appreciated some moderately priced selections.
convenience to airport room was a little bit small
Rooms are excellent with modern architecture. Lobby has no atmosphere and looks cheap.
flooring at the Sauna was too slippery - rubbish bin in the room was rusted !
The perfect location for access to the airport.
Sauna in the room. Prices at reception were higher 30% comparing the same at booking.com. So, was obliged to make booking via booking.com in front of reception from iPad. Receptionist was looking surprised and quite funny - bad image of the hotel price policy !
Great facilities. Beautiful, large room. Bathroom contains both shower and bath tub. Nice restaurant. Great location at the airport. Exellent breakfast !!!
Sound isolation is very poor. Couldn't sleep because of noise coming from neighbours: water flush in toilet, baby's cries, people steps...
I love the location right at the airport. I also love that I can take the luggage cart from the airport all the way into the hotel room. The hotel staff is very good, professional and friendly. Room felt cool and it was not possible to turn up the heat.
The early possibility to have breakfast (to catch a airplane early) was positive!
It was very clean and comfortable. The staff was helpful in answering all of our questions. It was a good price and the bus shuttle to the airport was convenient. We would definitely stay again.
The sauna was exellent,gym also was ok,
Good breakfast from 0400 until 1000. Free internett. Suitable room. Nothing.
Hotel location meets our business requirements. It is clean, good breakfast and warm staff. not applicable
Simple and clean rooms. Just what you need for a short stay near the airport.
Spacious rooms, clean and new, very good breakfast, free wireless internet everywhere, friendly staff, free shuttle bus to/from the airport every 20 minutes. No shuttle bus between noon and 3 pm on weekends and holidays.
Very close to the airport with free airport shuttle to and from hotel. liked everything. Very happy with our stay.
Very good hotel. The only thing we did not like that we could not open any window because it was very warm in the Room.
A 2-week stay proved consistently good service and facilities. Our group of 9 family members were able to easily catch the hotel shuttle bus that runs regularly and promptly (every 30 minutes throughout most of the day) to connect to Helsinki's superb rail system at the airport, only 5 minutes away. The very large breakfast buffet runs 4 - 10 am and is consistently well-stocked and a big hit for everybody. Significant numbers of professional visitors keep an upscale image, while many families also use the hotel. Two well-equipped play rooms for toddlers up to middle-school age children were also a big bonus for our family. The rooms are comfortable but not huge. The 2-twin bed room had a large built-in sitting couch and one desk chair, allowing all 9 of us to sit to make plans, with 2 people sitting on the bed. The bathroom was clean. Hardwood floors (European common) were well-maintained and daily cleaned. Plenty of power outlets are available. Room temperature and humidity were easily adjusted and relatively quiet. The overall noise level was extremely low, room-to-room, as well as from the hallway. While no dresser drawers are provided, the large wardrobe closet with two 2-feet wide hanger spaces and additional column of storage cubbies was sufficient for our multi-week stay. The check-in/out process was quick. A 10-minute walk to the very large Jumbo mall provided a wide array of food and shopping opportunities. Our top floor room (7th) faced the Ring 3 highway which prevented use of the fresh air window due to traffic noise. However, the room was exceptionally quiet with the window closed. Ask for opposite side room, if available. The mini frig is labeled as a cooler only to +10C, however, it seemed adequate for most chilled drinks and even milk products. With such exceptional breakfast buffet service, it seemed odd to have long waits for afternoon/evening restaurant meal service. Few people used the restaurant. The hotel across the street had faster service and more reasonable menus for our taste. The Hemingway bar was comfortably equipped for small or large group gatherings, but speaker music was a bit loud for any intimate conversation.
Overall good airport hotel, decent breakfast, the airport shuttle is right on time. I checked in a few hours early, additional fee is 10 Euro per hour. Wish I had known that ahead of the stay - I might have picked a hotel closer to city and taken cabs to airport instead.
10 minutes from the airport, free shuttle-bus every 15 mins. Room that I stayed in needed renovation. Good for a quick stay while waiting for an early morning flight, but not for any longer.
Close to the airport, where I had a business meeting. Free shuttle to/from airport (although it didn't come in the morning). Free wired internet access. For the price, I was expecting a bigger, nicer room (although I can't compare with other hotels in the area). The bathroom was especially cheap-looking.
We had a spacious room with a large sitting area and a lovely wide bed. The breakfast room was not very cosy.
Breakfast has a nice variety, and it's very close to the airport. Free bus from hotel to airport. One of the bartenders was rude, but the other was extremely sweet so it almost canceled each other out.
Not much Building delibitating. Bad staff service.
The restaurant didn't operate at the time of my stay so I cannot judge the services offered from it.
free buses to airport the design of the hotel, very old rooms - they need cosmetiks repaiment, hours of breakfst - to 10 oclock it should finish later....
Very nice property. Well maintained. Clean. Shuttle to airport is convenient. Breakfast was acceptable (more continental style with a lack of hot entrees). Staff is very congenial and helpful. Standard room is a nice size and comfortable. I liked the couch in the room instead of an uncomfortable chair / table combination. Access to the hotel from the 615 bus stop on the road above is not safe or easy to walk down. A path should be built to provide easier access.
Food in the evening was quite good and kitchen was open late even on sunday night, which we weren't sure about. Free bus from the airport, although it was very crowded in the morning so didn't use it, took a taxi instead. Airport is very close so it wasn't expensive. Peaceful and clean hotel. Bathroom could not be any more basic. Room was cold, but we like sleeping in cold and didn't spend much time in the room (no idea was it possible to turn the heat up).
Close to the airport, and aslo close to our office in Finland. Free airport bus suttle.
Location Restaurant / food facilities are lacking after 19:00
Does not provide frequent flyer bonus points for the stay, so nearby Hilton for the same price is a better deal.
Situated in the airport so very convenient if you've just come off a plane. A very basic room, quite noisy, no natural light.
The fact that it was located at the airport, and not noisy!
Its close proximity to the airport terminals - great since I arrived at the hotel very late after some flight delays The room had no windows and hence gave the impression of a high class prison cell
The big advantage of this hotel is the vicinity to the exit gate of the airport. The hotel is literally 150 m away from the exit gate of T2 on level -1. You do not need to leave the aiport building. Hotel offers free WiFi access. Rooms are currently being refurbished but the finish level of the rooms does not justify the elevated price. Breakfast is being served via a voucher at a bar in the airport hall in front of the hotel. Did not like it at all. Due to the fact of the hotel being at level -1 the rooms do not have any windows. Feels a bit like prison or submarine cell which is strange.
That they heated up the sauna for me (and that it was for free). The room was very quite as it is in the basement of the airport. The price was a little bit on the high side, but I guess sleeping over just 2 min from the security check at the airport has its price.
Your hotel is indispensable if you have a long layover between flights. It provides a quiet and restful environment that helps you to build up energy for the next leg of the trip. The pizza place next door closes at 8:00, which was a bit early for late-coming flights. Also, its menu could be a bit more diverse. Soups would be a welcome inclusion. The breakfast, on the other hand, was excellent.
Large room, big bathroom, the mirror in the bathroom and great breakfast. I have not found an iron and a room for ironing.
Breakfast is damn rich! Clean cosy rooms, comfortable beds. Staff was very polite and helpfull. Sauna has a rich view to the park and far ahead, pleasent feature. a new hairdryer would be allright :) that one they have is really ridiculous
staff, location, room
The room's very comfortable, bathroom's really big&nice, stuff's friendly and breakfest's awesome :)
Not much Requested double bed and got twin beds. No tea/coffe making facilities in room. Room housekeeoing at best average
Sauna with very nice view. Breakfast was also very good. I like the park infront.
No availability of local Restrauants to deliver food.
The location is great and the business lounge proved to be very handy. I don't like the carpets on the floor, they make the hotel seem old.
Convenient location for central zone without central zone prices Very crowded in the buffet area at breakfast
Breakfast was sumptuous! It is misleading to advertise a gym in the hotel but not inform guests in advance that it costs 12 euros ($18) per day to use it. That is an outrageous fee, plus the day we were there it also closed at 6:00!
really nice hotel,good buffet breakfast,very clean,ideally situated
Location. Design aspects. Small rooms. Impossible to shower without making whole floor wet. Very small free car park. Pay car park even smaller and very difficult to manouver.
Good and various breakfest, friehdly staff, near to the centre of city not enough parking spots, used furniture
Nice place, comrotable room and free internet and russian tv. nothing special
24 hour reception. Clean and comfortable.
No parking places for the car.
it was okay. some nice design features the bathroom is practically part of the bedroom - literally. feels like a box in the corner
Very stylish and comfortable rooms in quite a cheap price. There was nothing to complain about.
Location, private character compared with other hotels in hel
I liked a floor cover. Feels nice. My wife didn't like a floor cover. Says, it feels bad.
room was too small for two persons,bathroom was not handy
it's near from the airport and has free shuttle bus to airport. from our last stay two-three days before we found out that internet was not repaired.
good location near to the airport, free parking lot
Proximity to airport. Good for stopover on your way to airport, not for leisure. In the room there is a small kitchenett. There is free shuttle to the airport. Furnishing - a bit old. Breakfast not included in the price.
Overall everything was good except beds was badly noise but breakfast & staff was excellent ,washroom was very clean. Bed base & mattress need to change badly to make comfortable.
Good location near the airport (for layovers) with free shuttle bus; free wireless. Rooms are simple, but comfortable enough for a night's stay. I got reception service in native Estonian:)
Convenient location, good service in terms of the airport shuttle.
I did not use any of the amenities at the hotel as I was there only as its relativity to the hotel and I had an early morning flight
The wooden floor panel in the room. The breakfast was allright but ... ...I was missing fried bacon and and a sort of omelet.
there is ptoblem with internet in the room 512
location was convinent no a/c. rooms where unbearable with the heat.
Ease of access to Vantaa Airport , internet access , shuttle bus to airport
Comfortable room, beautiful view from the window, It was not far from railway station It was too crowdy in the restaurant in morning
Rooms I was promised to be given a smoking room but suddenly it was given to another guest? I reported this to the manager but no action was taken!
The staff, location and the area
the central location.quiet room,well isolated.air condition.good breakfast.efficient service of the hotel staff.
The people there were very nice. Say hello and goodbye to me when I left the hotel. The Gym was really good. The bed in our room was very good too.. big and confortable.. The furnitures seems to be a bit old fashion. The door was hard to open.. nothing for weak girls. :-)
The location was acceptable is about the best and only good thing I can say for it It may be the worst price:value hotel I've ever encountered. Expensive ($260) but feels like the assembly plant for Ikea. Television was partially blacked out, the toilet was unflushed (you know what I mean) and the whole place cheesey.
beatiful & friendly staff, perfect breakfast, perfet location
location, comfort, price, internet free, ...
Location from the hotel in relation to the center of the city is very convenient, walking distance to the downtown area. Breakfast room is a little "cold" and not very personal, good breakfast though. You need room-key to activate the elevators, I understand is for your safety, but not very friendly
Very good location. Various choice of dishes for breakfast. Free of charge Wi-Fi. We ordered a double room. But the room we received was prepared only for 1 person - 1 cover, 1 set of towels etc. Disco musik at midnight.
The breakfast was very nice and the location is not far from the centre. They should check the remote control for TV-set, Volume option was out of order:)))
breakfast room was so crowded so you couldn't sit properly
It was clean and near the city centre I didnt like the breakfast and the fact that we booked a room for two and the facilities offered(shampoos,soaps etxc) were only for one.
We arrived late at night and were still made feel welcome. We even got a better room than we had booked because all standard rooms were already taken. The room was big and nicely decorated. The bathroom was really clean and well equipped with all the necessary toiletries. There was also shampoo and soap in big dispensers on the wall so you can choose the environmentally friendly way, or you can take the small bottles if you prefer. The check-in and check-out was made fast and easy. The breakfast room was too small for the big crowd and tables were not cleaned fast enough to make room for new people. Some people did clearly not understand the concept of a buffet, but took large amounts of food with them. This was in no way mentioned to them by the staff! Outrageous! At one point there was not enough bread on the table because of this stealing!
I was able to get a harbor view room which was very nice. The location is about a 20 minute walk south of City Centre train & bus station and tram #6 and #9 stop close to the hotel from City Centre. The room is functional, clean and typical for Europe. The hotel is secure, requiring key card access at all time to room hallways and elevators. The breakfast was one of the better ones in my experience. A good selection of cold and hot items. It is more than the usual continental style selection. Breakfast was included in my room rate. The room is a nice size with a nice bathroom set-up. Room looked "tired". The carpet was worn, looked dirty and was in obvious need of replacement. The desk chair was not on wheels and was hard to move into a comfortable sitting position at the desk. Some of the staff were not very congenial. They seemed ambivalent and "bothered" when I asked some basic questions.
Very good breakast, nice room, comfortable bed
breakfast, room, position, view on the sea, access to internet Sometimes they didnt clean the room or they didnt clean it well...
stuff work too many security lockers on the fllors
Good ratio price-quality. Not too far from the town centre. the breakfast area quite busy in the morning
Very friendly and responsive personnel willing to assist even with unusual tasks such as to locate the tyre shop nearest to the hotel (although I didn't find it following the given recommendations) The parking which was free for entire duration of trip for guests staying in the hotel a night before departure and a night after arrival became payable.
Lugnt läge och inget spring i korridorerna nattetid. Utmärkt för övernattning! Frukosten för dyr när den inte ingick i rumspriset.
The hotel restaurant No place near by to get lunch
clean, very welcoming stuff
The outstanding level of personnel service and the amenities
Convenient, good hotel for business purpose (at least). There was shuttle bus service from the airport every 20min at least until 9:30pm. I went to the restaurant at the hotel at 10:00pm, but still available, reasonable price/quality.
Beautiful and spacious room including a separate dressing room and lobby Bathroom was very small and no enclosed shower or tub - so the floor gets wet if you shower. A squeegee was provided though I must say it was out of place and now what you expect from a Holiday Inn. Also we had asked for an extra bed but the hotel did not bother to inform us of cost before check in - 30 Euros seemed quite stiff and we might have chosen another hotel if we had known this beforehand.
Staff Bathroom (shower)
Free parking while you fly. and fly. Free bus transportation to airport.
Cheap, convenient for overnight stay near Airport. Good courtesy bus connection. Helpful reception staff. Could not open windows .. stuffy room. Did not sleep well. No coffee making facilities in room.
Good simple accommodation and they also had a sauna available to guests.
I liked the shuttle service, which is convenient and the room itself wasn't totally bad. The staff had a bad attitude, very cold and rude. The bathroom wasn't the cleanest one. Also the shower cubicle was leaking and there was no soap in the dispenser. It felt like they were doing me a favor in letting me stay there.
We had a shopping week end and it was positive to stay in the center of the city. The breakfast was crowded as the hotel was fully booked. Lower than average breakfast
very conveniently located..within walking distance of so much...very clean and comfortable pillows not the mot comfortable
The room is quite simple and poor equipped (shampoo, razier, comb, etc.) which are in the same price classs in the international hotels.The restaurant personnel was unfriendly and the order take time too long. The best was the situation, but quite too expensive compared to the service level and room equipment and facilities. I had even "superior room". The restaurant personnel unfiriendly. The service level poor. The room usual level in this kind of hotels. Not the worht of money. The room was too simple and serviceless for actual traveller.
During the stay I liked, good location of hotel, friendly staff, quality breakfast
The hotel looks quite fancy. The heating is not working so well, and the bed seems to be a little bit too small.
Clean, pleasant, good location. The bar prices were very high
Room comfortable enaugh, excellent staff, convenient location of the hotel.
very central location, nice walking everywhere. Friendly staff.
Central location. Room ok. Breakfast was poorly organised considering how many people eating and how many people working to clean tables etc. Not enough places to sit and personnel not eanough time to clean tables/dishes away.
Everything was great. Breakfast was varied enough. It's connected with the elevator to the bus station and the shopping mall in it. No sewing kits or hand creams (specially needed in winter)
This hotel is in a convenient location to the airport, very clean and quiet rooms, friendly hotel staff, connected to shopping center.
Modern, sleek design of room. The associated cinema and restaurant complex is really nice, not to mention it is connected to the huge mall next door. Shopping is fantastic. There was a keyboard in the room which had a broken pad; plus it seemed as though the cleaning staff missed clearing out the garbage in the bathroom
The first advantage of the hotel is its location. Very close to the airport, comfortable for transit passengers.
opportunity to use aquapark,nearness of shopping centre,opportunity to stay with 3 children.Very good presonal a the reception
Situated in shopping mall. Was there on Friday night with a lot of noise from youth who where going out. Further more they don't offer a shuttle to the airport opposed to other hotels in the neighbourhood.
I very liked grate breakfast, good atmosphere, sunny rooms Cleansing service work so so, because they are cleaning not all room each day, so it's not so nice
good view from windows. restaurants, spa and aqua park in same place. good breakfast. free parking. far from the city, quite expensive
One dirty towel; lipstic or something like that
Good location - airport, trade centers (Jumbo, Flamingo), easy to reach by car, free parking (!!!), nice selection of restaurants and bars at Flamingo Trade Center, breakfast can be better :)
The gym was very dull - treadmill positioned facing a white wall, no tv screens. Water was supposedly provided in the gym, however it was out when I visited, it did not seem any maintenance had been done in the gym that day. Breakfast was not very interesting either, cold cuts but very low on greens.
Central, breakfast, design The room was smaller than expected. Also, we were worken up early on Sunday morning by drilling and hammering.
Das sky Loft zum Garten war wirklich scchön Vorsicht wenn sie ein Zimmer zur Straße haben!! Der Lärm hat mich bis 4 Uhr nachts nicht schlafen lassen..... Bis auf die wenigen Zimmer zum Garten nicht empfehlenswert wenn man lärmempfindlich ist
Good design, convenient location Place real foto to the site, because we were dissapointed of the room size
exebition the absence of a child's room
Excellent location! Service and accommodations were excellent.
Quiet, comfortable, great breakfast, great location, pleasant staff, free guidebook in room, luxurious towels Not sure the design concept is worth paying more for. My single room wasn't terribly attractive and some design features, such as the bathroom sink were impractical (very shallow sink). Room temperature wasn't adjustable to make it cool enough.
Good location, nice staff, style and comfort design, original tasty and organic breakfast! Too noise night club during weekend nights,differents between rooms in one category (Envi+).
Very good location, convenient parking (20% discount, though not cheap still), very helpful personnel, good sound proofing, overall very good impression! Next time will deffinitely stay in this hotel. Central air conditioning with no option to change air flow. We had a kid with us so it was critical. The issue was quickly solved at the first request: we changed the room to the one with different vent positioning. No tea pot in the room.
Central Location, friendly staff and relaxed atmosphere
Personnel&services, design, business lunch offer Water in shower has a specific smell. Usual for centers of all cities, but still. Could they do something about it? Filtering?
Great breakfast and great location. Toscanis restaurant is awesome also. Gym is ok . Bathrooms and bathroom products are great. Having a fridge is good also No ironing board or iron , no desk in the room. Rooms are tired and pokey - choose your room type carefully - you get what you pay for here - some suites are ippukrnt other single rooms are like prison cells.
Comfortable and clean, staff was nice and helpful. Great breakfast. Location is nice, close to center, some nice cafes and restaurants around, and very close to Katajanokan terminal and ferries to Tallinn. The restaurant in the hotel is nothing special, better options outside.
Breakfast,very quiet,excellent hotel!!!!!
Close to harbor and sea. Cold in room, small window in the room.
location, triple rooms, friendly and professional staff, sauna, good value pull out bed was uncomfortable, sterile feeling, kind of dark
great location in the best part of Helsinki near all central services helsinki has to offer Basic rooms , historical building but boring design,
A big thanks to the bartender Heino. very professonal and very helpful. he makes you fell very welcome.
An excellent location near the city centre of Helsinki.
Cleanliness of the room and the very pleasant and helpful staff
Very close to the Viking Line ferry to Tallinn. A five to ten minute walk from the hotel to the terminal. A another short walk the other direction to the harbor excursion boats and market. Very close to the Upsinki cathedral.
No towels in the bathroom, hairs in the bed.
Good location, clean rooms.
Helpful and responsive staff, a good bar and restaurant, very good gym that you may use any time, location (close to Market Place) cannot find anything that spoiled my stay
This hotel was one of the3 nicest places I have had the opportunity to stay at. staff very helpful and courteous; buffet breakfast was not wanting for anything. We held a four-day meeting using their facilities and the whole experience was very good. Its location right next to the Kampii indoor mall was a plus.
The room was big and very quiet. The beds were excellent. Breakfast was good, there were also organic choices. Breakfast room was very crowded. The furniture in the room would need a freshing up.
good location. perfect breackfast
location, breakfast, very comfortable beds, super bath, nice staff,
Breakfast was amazing...relatively close to attractions Old facilities, dirty furniture, impersonal staff
The location is first class. Rooms are quiet and clean. Breakfast is amazing, just what comes to mind, it is found. The hotel car parking space was difficult to find. The hotel received the information and the map was unclear
excellent location, spacious rooms with good beds, large bathroom with underfloor heating. very friendly and helpful staff, very good breakfast, excellent value for money. the public spaces should be refreshed: big spots on the carpets.
Although not at exact city centre it is well positioned and easily reachable. Polite staff, good breakfast. For international chain the choice of TV channels is quite poor.
I loved staying here. It was in a great, central location. About a 10-15 minute walk from the main railway station. Close to so many sights, restaurants, bars, etc... The staff was super friendly and helpful. The breakfast every morning was AWESOME.
Rooms good size for price. Breakfast areas overcrowded. Hotel lobby area not particularly attractive or welcoming.
Cituation central, Breakfast was great, Staff was great. Only one blanket for two, some moisture damages in room wall.
Included Breakfast was fantastic. Staff was extremely friendly. Room air conditioning did not work reliably and Windows were locked. When we inquired about it, the staff was very proactive in trying to remedy the situation. Hotel was dated, kinda looks Like it's stuck in the 1970's.
very special atmosphere, open terrase
huge bathroom, big bed narrow room
Interesting to stay in a converted prison, keeping some the original features. Good location, there was a tram stop right outside to the city centre. I was there when it snowed. They could have sanded the flight of steps a bit earlier.
This war really an interesting experience. It was my first night in a prison. I wouldn't spend a week there but its really fun for afew nights.
It close to a tram stop. Inside it is very beautiful and confortable, An the atmosphere is suggestive.
A fancy place located on a lovely island close to the city centre A little bit of extra variety to the breakfast menu would be nice
The hotel is very nice and confortable. The position is good to visit the city because it's in front of tram stop and near to the Viking Line's port. The room is really warmful and clean. The breakfast is gorgeus: there are whatever you can image for an international breakfast. Nothig
I enjoyed the feeling of authentic design; it was different, but not too much so. The restaurant was excellent.
Staying in a old prison is a great experience and they've done it so beautifully. The staff is nice and helpful. Breakfast is good (although the herring is really salty). The rooms are comfortable and the bathrooms are really nice. It's a little out of town but that's what you'd expect from a prison. It's not like they are in the center
very original place, my first time in a prison. Few tram stops from town center. Good breakfast.
The novel idea of a hotel set within a former prison. Very nice decor
Cozy atmosphere, warm hotel, extremely kind staff at reception.
The hotel is comfortable. Hotel staff was very helpful.
The main building (Vanha Poli) has been a favorite of mine for a long time and every time I pass through it, I love it. The room was small and ultra modern which is a stark contrast to the jugend (art noveaux) exterior and entrance. I was never a big fan of the modern stuff and it is disappointing to mix so great old building with modernism. Also, it was extremely hard to get the room to warm up to even 22C in the middle of the summer.
Good location, beautifull architecture, very helpfull and friendly stuff. No free Wi-Fi
Nice hotel in a good location with a cool facade. Shower was a bit small but sufficient.
The bathroom I checked in had intense feces smell, seems someone just went to #2 in the bathroom. I changed the room. Later the night, I clogged the toilet (which very rarely happen to me). The front desk staff said there is no one to fix as it was late at night. I had to either change the room again or stay in the current room and go to the bathroom in another room (the one whose bathroom had intense feces smell). The hotel was physically beautiful and the room was nicely cleaned, but this experience ruined my only one night stay in Helsinki. I felt very uncomfortable staying in this Glo Hotel. I would never stay here again and will never recommend it to anyone I know.
Central location, comfort and excellent personnel everything was ok
The staff were absolutely wonderful. We were disappointed in the opening hours for the sauna. As it is gender segregated and open for only two hours per day to each gender (around the dinner hour), it was very difficult to use.
This hotel is in a great location, walkable to many sights and things to do, and is comfortable and spacious. Best of all, it has an amazing breakfast spread, a great way to start off a day of hiking around.
The location of this hotel was perfectly situated about 10-15 minutes from downtown Helsinki, this was an added bonus, especially for the price. While my room was small, it had an awesome vibe and decor to it that made me feel at ease. The concierges, who spoke great English were always there to give me tips and directions to local hot spots. The overall decor and aesthetic of the hotel was beyond my wildest expectations. This building was so beautiful that I cannot express them in words. The only thing I can say is experience it for yourself, you will not be disappointed. Oh did I mention the sauna and the breakfast buffet were INCREDIBLE. That I had to leave!
The breakfast is above average compared to other Finnish places, really decent coffee from a local coffee place, the rooms are quiet, nicely equipped with super comfy beds and water kettle. The doors in the in-room bathrooms need a tad of maintenance. Breakfast can get very busy.
This is one of the most beautiful hotels I've ever stayed in. The location is great, since it's a short walk to the city center of Helsinki, and surrounded by great little shops and restaurants. The staff was excellent, super friendly and almost every one (the exception was the cleaning staff) spoke English. The room was stunningly beautiful. We did get the room upgrade, and the room was still on the small side for two people. The shower is a little transparent, so heads up if you are traveling with family, it's strange. There was construction going on so it was noisy, but they were very nice about that. Overall great place.
great location, nice breakfast, super security, very clean room, stylish decor, front desk manager and staff were super. They offer a loaner laptop at the front desk! Bathroom lighting a bit dim
Excellent central location Nothing to mention
I liked the design and location and spa no
Tasty breacfast.perfect location to the railway station and shops It was too cool in the room.
breakfast was substandard breakfast
The Hotel staff is very kind. The hotel is very modern and trendy and it's located in a very nice area of town.
Perfect location, basically next to the most famous and central hotel in Helsinki. The breakfast buffet was excellent. My room in the new section of the hotel was nice, but my "view" was the roof of another part of the building.
nice location. near tram station metro station and rail way station. easy to go anywhere. there was a mark of the lipstick at the glass.
very close to the center of the city a bit small room
Although it was quite busy, the breakfast was excellent. As we requested a twin room, we ended up with a room that handicap accessible so it was very spacious. Beds were very comfortable. Wifi worked well.
Great location, extremely friendly and professional staff, clean rooms, great breakfast. Overall, an excellent value for the money.
we've booked smoking room, but there were only 6 smoking rooms and all of them were occupied
