Hotel Helsinki was once one of the upscale hotels in downtown Helsinki, but those days are definitely gone. Even if the rooms pretty newly have been redecorated the hotel is in urgent need of renovation. The old wooden window frames don't really filter any of the noise from the street. The breakfast room is heavily undersized when the hotel is... More

I chose Sokos Helsinki hotel because of the good location and in that respect I did not get disappointed. However, there were many others aspects in the hotel that left me rather disappointed. The rooms and the interíor overall is pretty worn-out. Especially the bathrooms are not up to the level of today's standards. The worst thing in the bath... More

You can't get more central location in Helsinki than this. Still at least our room was very quiet, being in the fifth floor corner, with large windows to two directions. Rooms could use some updating, but they were still nice and kept very tidy. Breakfast was normal finnish style, so no complains.

Comfortable rooms and good service but the rooms are in need of an upgrade. Bathrooms particularly need upgrading. The staff were friendly and efficient and Helsinki is a beautiful city well worth visiting. Rooms were kept clean and the food, at breakfast, was tasty and well prepared.

Rooms look quite old,and bathroom is large but looks unkempt.But the location of the hotel at the city centre is great,and the room rates are a good bargain.The breakfast turned out to be quite sumptuous.But,those looking for a clean and modern hotel might try newer hotels.

As the title. And this hotel is equipped with sauna on the under ground floor. Please aware to the open time. It is relatively short and limited. The breakfast is good. The bed is also comfortable due to its hardness.

The lobby was small but had some seating and several computers for customers to use. The restaurant was nice, especially the included breakfast. There were 3... More

Stayed here for 2 nights in June. The hotel is in a central location on a pedestrianized shopping street. The room was basic, clean and fairly large. The room has wifi but the air conditioning controls had no effect. Housekeeping were very late getting to our room (we thought we'd been forgotten).

Dear CityTravellerWales, Thank you for your review. Location of our hotel is absolutely one of our high points.
