Hotel's location is perfect if you need to be located in the centre. It's a quite noisy in the room because of outside traffic - trains and cars, but if you're young and with a deep sleep, it won't bother you. There are three small elevators, which are very overloaded on prime hours, so take some additional time for reaching... More

I was once (12 years ago) and could remember the pleasant atmosphere and inner archetecture of this hotel. Now the second time was as expected. Last year I was in Turku and visited Sokos Hamburger Bors hotel which was pleasant as well.

My wife and I stayed with our 6 and 8 year old boys. We were in a family room which was a double bed and another fold out double from the couch. Maybe it was just my boys at the end of a long holiday but they could have done with seperate beds. The staff were very friendly and my... More

I have stayed here on two separate occasions. The hotel is located as centrally as one can imagine, straight against the central railway station and on the main city street Mannerheimintie. However, with the location come the crowds and the parties, one Saturday night being so restless that I could not really sleep at all. The breakfast buffet is very... More

Original Sokos Hotel Vaakuna Helsinki is in a perfect location in the heart of Helsinki for those arriving by train or by airport bus as it is across the street from the station and the bus drop off point. It is on the main tram lines and walking distance to most attractions. The front desk staff were extremely friendly, efficient... More

Check-in starts at 12 o'clock. However, if you have arrived earlier, there is opportunity to leave luggage at the hotel's storage room. It is really handy when you want to walk around the city. You may leave your luggage there also after checking out, which happens also at 12 o'clock. The hotel is situated in the heart of Helsinki. Few... More

I stayed for the second time in this hotel when visiting Helsinki. We love this hotel because it is in the heart of Helsinki, short walk to Starbucks, shopping centers and restaurants. Will be back the next time visiting Helsinki.
