“All man (women and men) should visit the Ladies toilet in the Hotel Torni! Never mind this is the place where the Russians and other winners of the 2nd world war had their stations during peace negotiations in Helsinki, but the Ladies toilet has the best view over Helsinki, and not only of the toilets in Helsinki but as other facilities as well! YES. Just do it! Wait for your turn, and never mind it says "Ladies". :) Yes, you can also have a drink up there in the bar and eat well in the restaurant downstairs. ,)”
