          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.
