    It was not written on booking site, that the hotel is situated in the mall and that there is a reconstruction going on. The signs in the parking house guided the hotel reception to be on A1 level, yet it was 2 stories higher. And the window of the room opened to a newly built building with distance less than 10m from where contructors looked right into my room - there was no privacy without curtains completely shut. Breakfast was in the reception hall, overcrowded, no place to sit.

    Hotel is rather old and no renovations done for long time and it is clearly visible. Value for money was not what it was expected. With same amount of money you could stay in the heart of Helsinki in better quality hotel.

    The location next to airport and railway is excellent.

    • Standard Single Room
    • Stayed 2 nights

    It was really expensive to stay in this hotel so I expected to get the same amount of stuff you get in other pricier hotels around the world. Mistake! Not even a kettle with some tea bags, or a shower with walls, just a drain in the middle of the bathroom, smallish room which was turned to the station so I could hear trains coming (fortunately, I couldn't hear the buses, even though the bus station was also there. In the bathroom, two packets of shampoo and balsam. Oh, and sewing kit and to wipes (!) for shoes. Not even a small sponge to shine shoes. Or a small comb. I think those things cost together less than 50 cents and I cannot believe that after spending 290 euros for two nights they cannot afford to give me even this.

    Breakfast was really good, very wide array of foods, gluten-free options available. Two tipes of porridge!

    They should proved a coffee/tea kettle in the room . Rooms and hotel needs renovation.

    Only plus point is that it's located very close to Tikkurila train station from where one can get high speed trains to upcountry Finland. One doesn't have to travel to Helsinki and take the trains from there. Although at present access to this hotel from Tikkurila train station is quite tedious due to the on-going construction activity, but hopefully that would end soon for the better. Plenty of eating options and bars in the close vicinity of the hotel.

Great if you're there on business or to see a concert in the hotel's nightclub, and its convenient for the airport, but otherwise I'd stay in central Helsinki.

    Staff all very sweet, room was clean and comfortable, breakfast was good, if busy. Very close to bus and train station so easy enough to get into central Helsinki (three stops) or the airport. Across from the hotel is a small park with a planetarium which was popular with families and school visits - the cafe there (Cafe Einstein) was nice with pretty views over the waterfall.
