    That was great rest at this hotel!!! Best of all i liked the show with prisoners - that was very funny! Breakfest and the room were excellent!!

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Helpfulness of the Reception Staff especially Annika who made our stay very pleasant and enjoyable

  • Older travelers
    8.2

    It's not ordinary place. It was good idea to design a hotel where there has been a prison.

    There was something wrong with parking place at the hotel. And WiFi doesn't work inside the room.

  • Single
    9.6

    Building (former prison). Internet access (reliable connection, no accepting page, no passwords). Service.

  • Group of friends
    6.6

    Unusual venue located in beautifully restored area, on the no 4 tram route and yet withinh walking distance of major institutions and the waterfront. Hotel had been senstively restored and a history was available as well as free access to the internet.

    The small lounge areas did not seem to encourage people to linger/ socialise but perhaps this was just the season.

  • Family with children
    9.6

    Kids room, breakfast, location, room nice and big

    No room service or food served during day

  • Couple
    8.8

    So beautiful and interesting hotel, an old prison in a beautiful place in the city, near the port and Cathedral. The transportation is available at the gate of the hotel. The breakfast is very good.

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    Readiness to shift non-refundable booking without penalty!

    Nothing to report

  • Family with children
    7.0

    Please, close the door during meeting in the closest room (# 305 connect to the church room. During coffee-break was too loud).

  • Family with children
    10.0

    The hotel is very cosy, clean and comfortable. Stay in this hotel is like the interesting adventure.

  • Older travelers
    7.4

    The hotel was a former prison and it had retained original features in building which made it intriguing.

  • Older travelers
    8.8

    Very good location; unusual theme (ex-prison); wide choice for breakfast.

  • Couple
    9.2

    The hotel looks very nice and the rooms are very comfortable. The location is good - there is a tram that goes to the centre of Helsinki right outside the hotel. Also it's a 15-20 minute walk to the centre. Breakfast has a a lot of variety - it was one of the best I ever had.
