The service was nice and frendly. The room was clean and silent. There was even a balcony, but because of the rainy weather I did not use it. The wiew was the next bilding's brick wall with lots of windows. Good sleeping place in central location near the railway station. The breakfast was veri ordinary, nothing special.

This is a great hotel for a visit to Helsinki. It is conveniently located near the central station and about 50 metres from where Finnair airport buses arrive and depart. The hotel has much to commend it. The rooms and public areas are both pleasant and spacious. We also found the staff to be friendly and very helpful.

Location of the hotel is great and it gives a good opportunity to see the city and go for shopping. Staff is friendly and it gives a welcoming feeling. The room in the 8th floor was spacious and the view was nice.

Vaakuna is an excellent hotel, in a superb location opposite the main rail terminus. All staff were very helpful and friendly. A very 1950's style building in the interior but it felt warm and modern with well kept large bedrooms, spacious corridors and floor lobbies. Plus excellent views, especially from the breakfast room and Bar Loiste on the 10th floor.... More
