The original part of this hotel was built in 1903, and its towers and internal details still reflect some of the more fanciful touches of Helsinki's Jugendstil period. An art deco–style section was added in 1928. The higher floors of the original section, especially the Atelier Bar, have striking views of Helsinki. The bar also has monthly art exhibits. Old-section rooms on the courtyard are best; some have high ceilings with original carved-wood details and wooden writing
desks; many also have little alcoves and other pleasing design oddities. The rooms on the top floors are modern, with glass bathrooms.
