Nice hotel in the center of Helsinki. Location is very good. I was surprised that my room was so quiet - no any traffic noise. Service was nice and breakfast was also nice. Cleanliness - could have to pay a little more attention.

We spent one night in Helsinki. The location was fantastic, and we saw it as soon as we left Central station. It was also convenient to walk from the hotel and the airport bus leaves from across the road. We had a great city view from our room. The breakfast was good and we enjoyed the bar area downstairs.

Hotel Vaakuna is a very classic and traditional hotel. It has an excellent location in the centre of Helsinki. It's close to everything. You can easily come here by train (train station is in front of the hotel), by bus (airport busses come nearby) and by tram (tram stops from e.g. harbour are nearby). And you can easily walk everywhere... More

Hotel Vaakuna is in excellent location in the middle of Helsinki. It is very easy to arrive by public transport. Service in the hotel was very good. Room was clean and view from the room excellent. Breakfast was also excellent.

My wife and I were given a room on the 9th floor with a balcony! The room was large and stylish in a fifties kind of way. I actually like this because normally Finnish hotels are really modern and have no character and charm. The room was very quiet, and the beds comfortable. If you are a couple it's still... More

Stayed here as we had an overnight train to catch the next day and wanted to be able to walk to the station. Very well positioned for that, but also close to the main shopping area and harbor. Has a shopping centre under it. I'd stay again.

Located in the heart of Helsinki, just next to the railway station. Lots of shopping options nearby, entry to Sokos and Marks&Spencer straight from the hotel.. Clean, quiet and modern room, awesome breakfast in the restaurant on the 10th floor (great views).

Stayed two nights at this hotel in early December. The room does not have its own sauna but that's ok for people like me who aren't used to using saunas. It was clean and the bathroom floor is heated - which is great because we were there in winter! The room was clean and it was of acceptable size. I... More

I stayed two nights at this hotel. With its 1950 décor it somehow felt like a trip back in time. My room had nice views of the city - however the room itself was somewhat austere - not much coziness here...but clean and ok. Breakfast was average but great location on the 10th floor with nice views. Also had dinner... More
