        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.
