This hotel is perfect, just like it is every time I have stayed here in the past. I love the staff, the rooms, the location, and the fact it is attached to everything you need. you never even have to go outside to go to a department store, the sauna, several fine dining options, a fast food option, a grocery store, and a train station.

Comfortable
Did not spend much time in the room during my stay. Daily cleaning was not necessary for me during the stay.

OK Central Hotel
Right next to the station and nicely decorated thought out hotel. The room was cold though and no fiddling with the controls sorted it out. Good job I was on my own and could use the second single duvet on the double bed. Pillows (square) not very comfy but the bed was. Nice bathroom with underfloor heating and nice toiletries. The room was simple but pleasant. Plentiful breakfast with lots of choice but the quality of the ingredients was on the cheap side. The machine "juice" was concentrate mixed with water and undrinkable.

10/10 Exceptional

This hotel is centrally located to city center and landmarks all in walking distance. The hotel is situated right next to the central railway station and the main street of Helsinki, Mannerheimintie. Also close to restaurants and take out as well as supermarkets Friendly helpful staff. Breakfast is served at the rooftop restaurant with a great view over the city. The rooms were clean and good sized. My only complaint is there is no proper place for the kettle because the cord is too short. I would definitely recommend it and stay there again!

Great hotel in city centre
I really like this hotel. It has kept some of the charm from 1950s. I love the authentic glass doors from the 9th floor up to the roof terrace and restaurant. Nice room. The check-in process can be speeded up.
