Very good service and good location. Restaurant was nearly closed but reception person helped me to get food. I liked very much great pizza that I ordered. All pizzas can pay with S-card meal advance. I would recommend this hotel at future. This hotel is heart of Helsinki and still I can come here easily by car.

This hotel was very nice and my room was exactly like that of the pictures displayed on here. The room was spacious, it had a tv (though i wasn't sure how to work it), internet was fast in the room, and the bed was very comfortable. The staff were fantastic - always happy, smiling and very friendly. They were always... More

Stayed in Sokos Albert for 3 days for a business trip. Single room is a bit tiny but still very pleasant. Bed, even being soft, surprisingly comfortable to sleep, they also provide 2 pillows of different sizes so you can select which on is more comfortable for you to sleep. 5 to 10 mins walking distance from the city center...

Stayed in Sokos Albert for 3 days in January with my wife and our friends (young family with child). Location is just perfect - all city attractions, malls and central railway station are in 5-15 mins walk, while the hotel itself is located in a quiet residential area. There is a parking in a basement floor - it's not free... More

When I first walked in I got a bit confused because the reception looked more like a bar, which it also was... The elevators are tiny and very old fashion, but the system works if you just read the sign. The cleaning could've been better, there was a bit of dust here and there, the toilet didn't look like it... More

The outstanding features of this hotel are its service and its breakfast. The location is good, about 20 minutes walk to centre of Helsinki and near restaurants and "supermarkets" if you want to buy food for snacks, and Helsinki's "design district". About 20 to 25 minutes walk from the 2 hour ferry to Tailinn, Estonia. There is a bus that... More
