Got a very warm service at the front desk with the understanding of my personal needs. The room was nice with a big bathroom. The location of Hotel Helsinki is very close to all the main offices of companies and officials I need to meet weekly. Also the bus connections to the international airport are within two hundred meters.

I usually stay at Sokos hotels when I am in Finland as they are pretty consistent and reliable. This one stays true to that...it is a clean, modern hotel. The staff are professional and friendly. The rooms are spacious enough and laid out well except the bathroom. It is probably one of the smallest bathrooms i have ever seen in... More

All rooms are spacy, nicely decorated, practical and the most important: beds are excellent. The staff at the reception is friendly and willing to help you. Breakfast with many alternatives is served in the restaurant of the same building.

We stayed at this hotel the last weekend in january 2015. The great thing about the hotel is that it`s in the middle of Helsinki. So it`s only a short walk to the Cathedral, marked square, Stockman, the harbore etc. The breakfast is good, the rooms are ok, could have been a little cleaner. Staff is friendly, so all in... More

Sokos Hotel Helsinki is my favourite place to stay in the Helsinki city center. Its near central railway station and underground. It have great sauna where you can see the Cathedral. Staff is always friendly and breakfast is good.

This hotel never lets me down. Have been staying here half a dozen times. Awesome price-quality ratio, good night sleep, nice breakfast and attentive staff. What more one could hope for before heading for a long flight? :) Will be back again.

I was in Helsinki for the night on business and I chose this hotel via my travel agent and then TripAdvisor. The advantage and the disadvantage of the hotel is that it is in the centre of town which meant it cost an extra 39 Euro to park each day. The hotel room was clean and just what I needed.... More

The hotel is located very centrally but quiet. The room was big and super clean but lacks any charm as the hotel in general. very good breakfast with lot of choices but rather crowded restaurant. Very long queue for the check in with just 2 persons on the reception. Good and convenient for business overnights.

It is true that we are in the heart of the city but still our rooms are quiet which very nice for our guests. We do our best to avoid queues at the reception.... More
