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.

The hotel was nicely presented, the buffet breakfast was adequate but the bar closes early so if you are planning on a drink after your post meeting meal, there are a few bars down the road that the helpful receptionists can point out

This was my 2nd stay at this hotel. I got a so-called reneissance room from the older part of the hotel. Room was decorated in darker colors and it felt really cozy, bathroom was beautiful. Cleaning was not on good standard as there was so much dust on the floor corners that it had roped on to floor lamps switch.... More

The people at the front desk are rude and do not treat you professionally. They all seem to be unexperienced how to make customer feel welcomed to their Hotel. More training please. I travel a lot around the World and have never experienced such difficult time with the front desk service. While traveling, you don't want to hassle all day... More

Nice hotel close to shops (Stockmann i.e.), museums, market place, theatres etc. Good service at the hotel restaurant, food ok. Parking places without a cost just outside the hotel. Nice for a week end in Helsinki.

We were travelling to Helsinki for a weekend with two children. We had booked a family room and we got accomodated in a room that looked like it was from a retirement home. It was roomy but the bathroom looked like the floor or the walls next to the shower had never been scrubbed. The shower curtain was dirty and... More

We were disappointed by the size of the room which is the smallest 4 * I have every stayed in. The pictures are somewhat misleading as they mostly show some non "standard" rooms so give a misleading impression. Also the bed was held up by a piece of wood in the middle of the frame and was uncomfortable. For the... More
