This hotel was okay. It looks very new, but if you look closely you see it is not properly renewed. They spend a minimum of money to make it look okay in pictures. I was not very convinced of this hotel. Although we had a fine sleep and could rent a parking spot for 21 euro per night in the... More

Good hotel with the breakfast and dining provision. Walkable distance to the city center where there are good shopping options. Cab service is 2 minutes away from the phone call. Koiski, street across is convenient to buy some quick snacks or utilities. Overall good place to stay for business/holiday.

I want to especially thank the young lady at reception who was so helpful and efficient. After a plane trip from Australia, lasting over 20 hours, we very much appreciated her thoughtfulness. All we wanted was a comfortable bed, and we were very happy with the accommodation.

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.

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...
