Really nice and cozy hotel with a good location near the city center. Room was very comfortable, nicely furnished and the bed was excellent! The puprose of our visit was to attend a sports event for two days and we really appreciated the delicious breakfast to give us boost for the day!

Nice small hotel with friendly and good service. We requested crib and extra blankets and got them to our room shortly. Room was nice and clean. Only cons were missing floor heating in the bathroom and long waiting time in the hotel's restaurant.

Nice and clean hotel in the centre of Helsinki.The room was ok. Breakfast was ok. There was no restaurant service in sunday which we did not know before and we had to go out to have something to eat. Otherwise our stay was ok.

It is a big problem that it is not possible to open the windows - it feels like a prison. At least some of rooms should have that possibility. Earlier it was at least possible to lend a window handle. Apart from this a nice hotel, Gentle staff, ok food

Stayed for 5 nights in March. Basic four-star hotel with pros and cons it used to have. Personnel was helpful and polite. Good location - eight minutes’ walk to centre of Helsinki. The two things that bothered slightly - no kettle/teapot in the room and breakfast that was the same for all five mornings (although it was good I was... More

Had an ok visit in this quite small hotel. Location is good and the size of the place makes it a bit more special compared to the rest of the Sokos "Original" -hotels, in good and bad. Staff seemed to be running on thin resources causing queues in reception, bar and breakfast.

Original Sokos Hotel Albert is a ordinary hotel in the centre of Helsinki. Easily reached by tram and situated in a calm area of the city. Near the venue Nosturi, where rock conserts are held several nights every week. The breakfast was boring, though. Everything was ordinary, not even the special coffees had any taste.
