I stayed here during the first half of my annual vacation. This was an absolutely perfect location for me, as it was within walking distance of the Ateneum, the famous rail station, tour bus stops and shopping at the Forum, as well as a variety of bars, coffee houses and restaurants. The room was clean, with a comfortable bed and pillows, along with a flat screen tv. the double windows kept the street sounds muffled, so I was able to sleep in quiet. I also found that the bed had an additional remote which allowed me to lift my feet and/or head simultaneously, which was great for reading/watching tv or additional relaxation after a long day of walking on tours. The restaurant and bar downstairs, Lost in Helsinki, was awesome as well, with a great selection of beers and cocktails, as well as great food! Try the salmon soup, the meatballs, or the burger and thank me later! The staff was amazing to me; everyone was friendly, kind and courteous, while remaining professional. The breakfast buffet was an added perk that fueled me up for a full day's touring and shopping. The prices were reasonable enough to keep me on budget, as well! I couldn't want for anything more while staying here and I will stay here again, when I next return to Helsinki (and I will)!! less
