Reception staff were very helpful and spoke excellent English (like most people in Finland) although there were frequently long queues at reception with only one staff member on duty (we waited 15 minutes to check in!). Our room (016) was spacious, tastefully decorated and with an excellent bathroom (although the shower cubicle leaked all over the floor). Comfortable bed and... More

We stayed in this hotel for one night and were blown away by the helpful staff of this hotel. We arrived via the finair airport bus which dropped us at the train station.From there it was a 20 min walk to the hotel (there is probably a tram that goes there). Upon arrival we were greeted by a friendly face... More

The hotel is just 10 min. walking distance away from the market square. The place is very quite, a lot of nice restaurants nearby. The hotel is absolutely wheelchair friendly, the room is fully equipped with all necessary for a guest in a wheelchair. The room is very cosy and spacious and can easily accommodate three people.

We were lucky enough to book the Rock and Rose -room designed by a Finnish rocker Remu Aaltonen. The room was to our liking with its dark tones, slightly tacky rock 'n roll theme and.... PINBALL! Got to admit, the pinball takes an hour or two as it is so cool but then again, that is why the room was... More

Dear guest, Thank you very much for your feedback regarding the Solo Sokos Hotel Aleksanteri. I will forward your nice compliments to the staff. Our maintenance fixed the momentarily issue with the air-con the next day. It has worked well these past hot summer weeks.

I have vsited this hotel a couple of time and have to say it is a good choice for anyone traveling to Helsinkin. The hotel is quite new with an OK restaurant downstairs. It has very nice quality rooms. The normal ones are a bit small but bed is very nice, the business rooms are very spacy even big. All... More

The service was friendly, the room romantic and large enough, and the bathroom well-equipped. The internet connection worked smoothly and, finally, the breakfast was awesome. The thing I liked least was that the location: the hotel is a bit far away from the railway station and airline buss stops.

I have stayed here for a couple of times during business trips in Helsinki. The hotel is located a few blocks from the center of Helsinki. The rooms are good and modern and the breakfast is tasty. Do not have too high hopes of the marketed "gym" since it is only one small room.

Stayed with 2 small kids and we loved everything about this hotel. Extremely friendly staff and great breakfast with good coffee and fresh strawberries to name a few. Clean and inspiring playing area for kids in the lobby. A spacious and clean family room is recommended for everyone traveling with kids.

We had one night in this hotel and it was so enjoyable. There did not appear to be a doorman, but the lovely girl from reception jumped up and opened the heavy doors so we could get our luggage into the hotel. The room was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was great and we also had a delicious buffet... More
