Location is as good as it gets. The room was clean, not very big though, and the beautiful roof terrace was an ideal place to enjoy breakfast on a sunny morning. An old building with lots of history..

We had a quick stay at the hotel. We had a large room with a view to the Mannerheim road. The room was clean and beds comfortable. as we had an early flight, we got bread and coffee at the lobby before we left the hotel. The staff was friendly.

Excellent location. Room was noisy. Breakfast on roof terrace was nice on a sunny summer day. Views from 10th flloor restaurants are great over the city. Hotel was crowded during the visit, some places on corridors were dirty, and icy cube machine was out of order. Hotel keys did not always work.

We have stayed at Sokos Hotel Vaakuna numerous times before, and when visiting Helsinki, we prefer Vaakuna because its excellent location in the centre of the city. The junior suite was quite adequate for our family. The rooms were clean and comfortable. At the 7th floor we did not get disturbed by the noise from the railway station square. The... More

I got a very good deal for the night; the room with breakfast, 90 €. It's bargain in Helsinki ! Very nice, quiet room from 9th floor with own balcony over Helsinki roofs. The breakfast was good, too. The location is excellent. This is not a five star, remember that. If you need that, pay 3 times more .....

The room was luminous, clean and roomy, but bed could be a little bit more assertive. Service good and location very, nearby trailway station. Breakfast was enough good. The elevators were too tight, suits for two people, when you are leaving hotel, there is some hurry to get free lift.

I have stayed in Vaakuna Helsinki couple of times. Good service, friendly staff. I always feel welcomed. Location is excellent. Trainstation is right across the street and shopping opportunities are very close. Sokos department store is in the same building and you can go to the store right from the hotel lobby. If you want to explore the city there... More
