4 of 5 stars Reviewed yesterday NEW

I enjoyed the exellent situation in downtown and good traffic connections. I valued also the little bit old fashioned style. Service was also very friendly and efficient and the receptionist offerd me a better room available, if desired.

Not any specific comments. Quite a nice trip as a whole. Especially the location was perfect for us. And no complaints of anything except the elevator would have been in better conditions We will use this hotel again

The Vaakuna is a great hotel-every time I travel to Helsinki I always stay there. The staff are very friendly, the family room (2adults+ 1 kid) was comfortable. Very central, so you can walk everywhere. Good prices and WiFi.

Rip off that you have to pay extra for a kettle in your room. this is normal anywhere outside of Scandinavia. How can you make yourself at home if you cannot have a drink when you arrive ? Dinner at restaurant was poor.Fancy food over priced and poor service. Breakfast was very good

Everything but sheets in the room are worn, even drinking glasses. I definitely did not expect this compared to price of the hotel. I might visit this hotel again after full renovation but not in any other case. The new Scandic nearby would've been only 20 eur more and for that price it beats Vaakuna 6-0.

Located in the same building as a shopping mall, and linked to a few major shopping malls in the center of Helsinki, the location is just amazing. If you are hungry for a late night snack, there's also a McDonalds on the side entrance to the hotel.

The location of the hotel is excellent. The noise of traffic does not disturb on upper floor (I stayed on the 9th). The standard room was clean and comfortable, the service excellent covered with an extensive breakfast.
