I stayed one night at the hotel with two friends. We stayed in a triple room which was real spacious and comfortable for us. The room was clean, the beds comfortable and plenty of storage. It is evident that the hotel is not "brand new" but it was not run down or shabby in any way. The staff was friendly... More

Overall I had a pleasant stay at Sokos hotel Helsinki. I stayed for 5 nights attending a business follow up course at the Helsinki University (next door -j ust around the corner). The hotel was very clean and the staff were very helpful. The breakfast was lovely with a large selection. The room I got (a single) was small and... More

This hotel was clean and had good basic facilities. There are lots of Sokos hotels in the city so don't rely on taxi drivers knowing which is which. Hotel is a great location with good tram services to most parts of the city. Two attached restaurants do good food and there is lots to see nearby. Definitely recommend.

Very well located - shops and trams on the door step, just a 5 min walk to the cathedral (worth a look) , pleasure cruise terminal and central rail station. Rooms are ok. Clean but quite bland - bed very comfortable though. Curtains are good which is useful in June when it hardly gets dark. Free and reliable wifi. Plenty... More

Overall, the Sokos hotel is a good, reliable, reasonably comfortable hotel if you get a good rate in this very expensive city. The location is excellent, walking distance from interesting sites, among very upscale shops and restaurants, easy walk to waterfront. But by North American standards, the hotel is uneven. Pros: Clean and tidy, modern bathroom (but with that odd... More

This hotel is very well located for shopping, night life and culture. The staff was friendly and breakfast varied. The single room was spacious enough and spotlessly clean. I would stay at this hotel again.

This hotel has seen better days. The rooms are a bit down at heal. Breakfast is a bit of a self service nordic bun fight - many people all service service. Nice bread and salmon if you are lucky and if has been replenished. The good thing is that it is very central and in a good location for seeing... More

Location is GREAT! The hotel is near everything, but not on the main roads. The main door is on the pedestrian street and you can access the Helsinki railway station (train, buss, tram, underground) by foot in few mins (even with luggage and a 3 yo walking). We visited the hotel with our small kids and got, free of charge,... More

I had to choose a hotel in my hometown because my flat were being refurbished. Although my stay was short we spent plenty of time inside. The location cannot be better, the breakfast is gorgeous and the chambermaids are helpfull and very polite. Do not miss it while staying in Helsinki.
