positiv: It was absolutely fantastic. Nothing fancy, just a very comfortable bed, new and tasteful furniture, and a fantastic little kitchenette and shower room. And the room was quiet, non-smoking, had a great view and was really cosy. I also loved the free use of the laundry room and sauna! (Although perhaps there could be better explanations of how to use the washing machines and tumble driers, for example, in English!)
positiv: I could connect ADSL internet without any problem.
negativ: Reception is opened only from 8:00 to 20:00.
positiv: Very nice apartment. Well equipped kitchenette. Positive with the laundry possibility and sauna in the basement. The free high-speed Internet (4Mb/s) is a big plus, and the reception has Ethernet cables for people who travel without. Nice and quiet residential area. The hotel is strictly non-smoking.
negativ: A double room was booked (one bed), but got a twin room. Towels and bedlinen is changed only once per week and this is too seldom (at least for the price asked for the room). The hotel restaurant is very small and has limited capacity for breakfast, thus I experienced having to wait to have a table. (Obviously the hotel assumes that people will have breakfast in their apartments). Few restaurants in the area, and no local map in the information folder in the room. Quite some distance to public transport, and the airport coach.
By Tram : Take the Tram Nr 4, 7 or 10. Stop at Töölö/National Museum.
By car from north : Follow the signs to city center. When you reach Mannerheimintie, turn right to Museokatu by the national museum, just before parliament house. Hellsten Helsinki Parliament building will be on your left hand side after 200 meters.
