This hotel is very nice in different ways. Its location can't be better, at the design neighborhood in Helsinki and not far from several other nice places to visit and to dine. There are several room types for you to choose from. Breakfast is very good. But, what really called my attention was the service. From the very beginning, people... More

I stayed in this hotel for 2 nights. Service was really good and breakfast is very nice. They even prepared an early breakfast in the second day since I had to leave early in the morning. I had a room overlooking the street, I preferred to have less see through curtains for privacy.

I stayed for one night at this hotel and I was very satisfied with my stay. The room was clean and since it was facing the back yard, also very quiet. The staff at the reception desk was very friendly and the breakfast was good. The location of the hotel is excellent, just a 10 minute walk to the main... More

This hotel is about 15 minutes away from the central railway station. The location is in the Helsinki Design District so there's lots of small and interesting boutiques and galleries. Shopping malls and department stores are 10-15 mins away. The service was warm and precise. Room was very clean and comfortable. Breakfast was good with many cold and warm choices.... More

My girlfriend and I stayed here one weekend in August and really had a lovely time! We got one of the nicest and most romantic rooms I've ever stayed in. It was spotless, and the room was equipped with everything you need for a stay. The service was great, both at the front desk (even though smiles were lacking) and... More

It's very polit buru Stalinist era and I do like the fact that it's retained the interiors. Rooms are quirky and comfortable and importantly warm. No road noise so you'll get a good nights sleep. The food is good and the meeting room facilities and wifi fine. I would go back.

Stayed in this hotel while on a business trip to Helsinki. The hotel looks really good from the outside. The rooms are standard and pretty small, however the beds were wonderful. The hotel has one restaurant situated on the ground floor. The service is average, some things I ordered never made it to my table. The food quality is average;... More

Good location in Helsinki, the Sokos is not far from the railway station and the airport bus that you can reach by tram. Friendly staff in the hotel and a funky deco makes it a different place to standard hotels . There is a supermarket just opposite the road which is always convenient .

It's a nice place where stay in Helsinki. Prices are related with the level of the Hotel, close to city center and design districts. Nice restaurants in the area. 24/7 grocery store just across the street. Clean, simple but good quality, "as supposed to be" business hotel. Sauna from 5pm to 10 pm. Beds are very comfortable. Breakfast good.
