We had an enjoyable stay at the Orignal Sokos Hotel Helsinki. The location is excellent, right in the city centre. The room was worn, but bright and clean. The room was very quiet. The staff was friendly. However, there were some downsides: - We were travelling with a 1-year old and I had to make the baby bed myself. The... More

Our stay was only two days but hotel was good value, Staff were very helpful and hotel has fast wifi. Rooms are large and bathroom heated. The only downside was that the curtains were not heavy enough to block out the light with sunrise at 3.30am.

Good hotel in central Helsinki. Clean, comfortable. Staff very helpful and friendly.Breakfast plentliful and fresh. Good coffee which I suppose in Finland is a given knowing how much coffee Finns drink. About 5-7 min walk from train station and same yo Esplanade and harbor.

Excellent location in walking distance to nightlife and boat tours. The new eighth floor rooms are nice, but seemed to lack climate control, getting very hot during the day. The breakfast basement is a bit Spartan, but served its purpose.

Many thanks for looking after us at your hotel. We only had one night before we moved on to Turku, but would have loved to have stayed longer. I will be recommending that we use your hotel again next time we organise a tour which includes Helsinki (this will probably not be until 2017). Everyone was impressed with your hotel,... More

The size of this hotel is a lot larger than it appears from the street.The rooms were recently renovated, spacious and clean. Breakfast was also included and had a large assortment of dishes. Is close walking distance from the train and bus station.Would definitely stay again.

I spent two nights here when I visited Finland and was very happy with the hotel. We arrived late in the evening and the hotel was located really close to the train station and everything else. It's just a minute or two to Espelande Park, shops and restaurant. Good breakfast. I would stay here again.

Location was very good. Close to bus, tram, ferry, and shopping/restaurants. Free breakfast was also pretty good. The lobby area is a bit small and the entrance was a bit hard to find since the name is a little different that "original sokos". Staff was very friendly and helpful. The room is very barebone but clean and spacious. Wish the... More

Hotel Helsinki has a good situation in the centre of city, also near the universitoy. This time I got a large and quiet room. I have also had different experiences but this time I told that I really want a quiet room during business trip. The breakfast was very good, consisting also my favorite cold smoked salmon. It was confusing... More

Our fifth time in this hotel. Very good hotel for short stay. Very clean. Very comfortable. But too many guests in small reception area during check in. Very good food and service in Frasmanni restaurant.
