  • Is it quiet at night?

    Hi there! Most of our rooms have windows to the courtyard which is very quiet. Unfortunately a few rooms have window to the street, and since we are located in the very heart of Helsinki there might be some noise. We do offer all our guests free earplugs just in case! :)
