The hotel offers good value for money, the only drawback is the short trip by tram to the center of the city, however, is a high standard and highly recommended. The hotel will undergo renovation throughout the property until approximately 01/07/2017.
The reception area is large with a nautical theme kept throughout the hotel. The reception is to the back left of the lobby and there are seating areas on either side.
The hotel is housed in a converted cheese factory, with a brown brick and glass facade.
There are three types of room; cabin, sailor and captain. Clients will be assigned either sailor or captain class rooms, both of which are large and in very good condition, as are the bathrooms. The hotel uses the combi cabin rooms as singles, but singles will always be in sailor class.
The restaurant is on the ground floor, with an American 50s diner theme. Breakfast is taken to the rear of the lobby in a large buffet room. The buffet is huge and delicious.
The hotel overlooks a busy shipbuilding harbour and a market place, within easy reach of Helsinki's main shopping area. The main shopping area is approximately a 10 minute walk. One can also take a tram (2 stops), which stops outside the hotel.
