Location is excellent in the heart of Helsinki. Service is friendly and professional. Only problem is that hotel is getting a little bit old. It could use some renovation and should be updated. Overall it was worth of money spent.

Best location you could ever have. Breakfast served with beautiful view. Lobby bar in 2nd floor shows disturbingly all the dust in chandelliers located in front of the lobbybar.

The hotel is one of the most center-located in Helsinki and worth considering for that reason. It has nice retro atmosphere without any extra fancy thingys.

Breakfast is served in highest floor restaurant which is... More

Good location, but noisy. Also at the morning at 6.15 the room cleaning trolleys wake you up. The wheels of trolleys make a quite loud noise. Breakfast is typical Sokos Hotel-standard. Location is good

Everything OK, I did not need any special services. Situation best possible in the middle of the city. I asked the room not on the road side. I succeeded to get one. So the sleep was good. Room for one person quite small but good enough.

The location of the hotel is very good: guite in the middle of the city, near by the realway station. As the room I hired was realtively affordable, it had nor very high standard. I understand that there are better rooms, too, but this was quit ok for me.

The curtains had stains and holes. Elevators were really small. Blankets were hard, not what you expect from hotel. Bathroom as also small and the room had no dressing table or mirror so you could put your make-up while spouse is taking a shower.
