            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.
