Stayed one night at Original Sokos during a business trip in February. Good and central location with the reception located in a shopping centre...(!) Warm welcome by the receptionist and an average overall first impression of the single room I was given on 4th floor. The hotel is not very spacious and has a low budget standard. The room was...

The property is really the labyrinthine, must be correct to think about what should go to reach the destination. Sounds from nightclub, corridors and neighboring rooms were too clearly in the room, "Open office" world of sound. The beds were good and the alternatives to a couple of different types of pillows. The room temperature is too warm and the... More

Over the years we have often stayed at Vaakuna to our complete satisfaction. Now, abruptly, the room felt small and aging. Especially the bathroom with its brown color scheme looked straight from the past decades. Hotels usually treat their customers with various toiletries in the bathroom, little bottles of shampoo, conditioner, skin lotion etc. Not that it means much to... More

Sleep here really often on business trips. Basic hotel as they all are from this chain. Small and old rooms. Slow and tiny elevator. Breakfast is typical Nordic. Service and the staff are pretty standard. Location is excellent as hotel being in the same building as a shopping mall next to a marker square. Bus and a railway station 5... More

Vaakuna Vaasa has a great central location in Vaasa by the market square. I do not know when they have markets in Vaasa, though. The staff tries, some of them, to be helpful. The problem with hotel Vaasa is that they do not (always) listen to the customer's wishes. Breakfast is a good Scandinavian breakfast.

If you are not on a tight budget, try the archipelago room in this hotel. I am sure that you havent seen one like that in any other hotel in Finland or in the world. The room is all over covered with old wood, and it is really decorated like a very old fisherman´s cottage in the Finnish archipelago. The... More

Staying one night in this hotel, located in the center of Vaasa, in fact in the shopping center. The room was in the highest floor, it was clean and quiet. It was easy to visit Vaasa: just go out and walk around. Breakfast was ok, staff was helpful. We also liked free WiFi. Underground parking place was nice, the weather... More

Everything you need in a very central location. The staff were exceptionally friendly and helpful. Breakfast was good with plenty of choice, restaurant for evening meal was ok. Rooms were basic but free wifi and a nice view over the square helped !
