Dear Outi, Thank you very much. Nice that you enjoyed the bar. See you again.

5 out of 5
We stayed on the 2nd floor which they plan to remodel later this year. Honestly, it was in little need of remodeling. Large room, comfortable bed, good desk and storage, nice bath with scented bath products and heated towel bar, helpful staff, sauna on top floor, good enough breakfast to get you started and the MOST lovely smell when you walk into the room. It's a few blocks walk to public transport but we mainly walked everywhere since the weather was nice.
