Lonely Planet review
Let’s get one thing straight: sleeping as close as you can to transport options isn’t lazy, it’s practical. True. This friendly place, operating out of the grilli (fast-food outlet) in the railway station, actually offers ensuite rooms in the building itself – very comfortable, exceedingly spacious and surprisingly peaceful. There are more rooms, with shared bathrooms, across the road on Vuorikatu.
