Score from 2011 reviews Very good
It is a good hotel by all standards, so can't really complain
As it is a former prison, it gave me creepy feelings, especially as our room was underground
Excellent location, within walking distance to downtown Helsinki. Staying in former jail was unique experience.
Didn't actually get a jail cell for a room. Internet only available in entry of hotel.
Big rooms Professional staff & service Good location
Rooms are cold and pillows are very uncomfortable (probably cheap ones) Wireless Internet does not work in the rooms
Comfortable Hotel Good Friendly Staff Good Breakfast
Little bit from the Centre of town but still a pleasant walk.
Loved the jail theme.
Wifi didn't work at all, they said it would work in the common areas near reception but I couldn't get it anywhere.
Building history Clean and Quiet
No in-room WIFI
Breakfast is very good and rich. Staffs are very helpful and friendly.
Wifi doesn't work in the room. The room is cold, and the heating system doesn't work (at the last days of August).
Friendly staff at reception desk The room in the staff building with normal windows is good. Close to city center
- unfriendly staff at breakfast - poor breakfast concerning bread and knäckebrød - very expensive parking outside the weekend
Great concept, helpful staff, comfy bed, nice bathroom
Lack of ventilation in room.
Something really different -staying in a converted prison. Well executed with comforts but still original cells on display to create atmosphere and staff in the numbered shirts - very convenient just by a tram stop to the centre - excellent breakfast
The place is really cozy being it a former prison, good breakfast, reception's girls nice
No internet in the rooms although specifically mentioned as one of the hotel facilities, freezing in the rooms and common area when outside were 13 degrees, restaurant's staff rude, too expenses
The reception staff were very helpful. We had a large twin room at the front of the building so were able to open the window. Breakfast was a good variety of buffet items. The interior of the building had been sympathetically used, a real experience.
Service at outside restaurant was very poor, one day we waited for an hour and a half. An elderly male member of staff was very rude to us. A limited choice of food which was reasonably expensive. The pillows in the rooms were lumpy, asked to have them changed and they were but still lumpy. The housekeeping was a bit hit and miss, sometimes we had things replenished, sometimes not.
No wifi signal in room.
Fascinating and unusual hotel - don't miss looking at the original segregation cell at one end of the dining room. Most staff very friendly and very helpful. Breakfast and restaurant food mostly excellent. Rooms generally very well equipped. Ideal location for nearby Marina Conference Centre (less than 5 mins walk) and also Viking Ferry Terminal for ferry to Tallin.
Pillows extremely lumpy. Air conditioning too cool and not adjustable or possible to turn it off. One member of reception staff overly 'business like' and inflexible, and much less helpful and friendly than the rest of the team. The 'semi Island' of Katajonokka where the hotel is located is extremely quiet and residential, so need to walk 15 mins back to main square before for pretty much everything a tourist might want.
Historical hotel located near Viking line
Prices of souvenirs
summer time- is all great to this hotel, All is Great
Great location and building. Prison environment very authentic with metal bars in front of our room (321). Clean and quiet room with views into court yard. Super friendly reception who kindly allowed us a later check-out.
Breakfast disappointing. Little bread left and many tables dirty and not cleared. Foreign TV channels not working. Unable to open windows for fresh air. Shower/Bath tub wall too high that even my 190cm husband had trouble getting into it.
Position, quiet, clean, breakfast etc.
TV had no English channels working all weekend.
Place in city, interior design, friendly personnel
No Wi-Fi coverage in room, place for smoking only outside hotel
The location was perfect and the garden around the hotel quiet and relaxing. My room was very clean, quiet and comfortable. good breakfast.
Perfect location - in the center of the city in a quiet and green district. Tasty and various breakfast with great coffee. Very helpfull staff. Cean and green territory. Clean and big rooms.
Quite expensive parking (but on weekends you can leave your car in a streets free of charge)
Breakfast was wonderful. Location right on the money. We had a wonderful stay here.
A little tricky to locate even with GPS. They need a bigger Best Western sign in a location easily viewed from outside the walls.
Found handprints from someone else in room mirror, that gave me a bad feeling regarding room cleanliness.
