I've stayed in many Sokos Hotels and there's always the certain quality to expect. Like the other ones in this chain, Vaakuna was big but quiet and clean. We arrived very late, or should I say early because it was 2.30AM. The reception had made our key cards ready and we could go in to the room without any paperwork.... More

+ Good location in the city centre + Breakfast and the restaurant were good + Free Wi-Fi which worked fine + We had a pet room which was quite small but otherwise no complaints - Pillows were really lousy, but the bed itself was ok

Stayed there on a business trip for 3 nights recently and can say that the staff is helpful and friendly, in a great location but is kind of a no frills type hotel. Rooms feel like a 3 star hotel, clear and functional but lacking in any of the 'frills' (e.g. hotel shampoo etc.) of other hotels. The location was... More

Spend three nights in this centrally located hotel. The hotel is tucked into Rewell Center, a shopping mall right in the heart of Vaasa. Overall experience with room and facilities was good. However, there were a few things that make me avoind this place next time. First, arriving to the hotel at 11 pm: the main door was closed and... More

You can not beat the location of this hotel in Vaasa. Just in the heart of the city and a short walk to the sea. The rooms are basic & clean. We stayed at 7th floor facing the market place. You can hear some noise from the street but it didn't disturb our sleep. Very good breakfast.

The location is good - the city is a small one so practically allt he hotels are well located. You have some restaurants available in the same building and a shopping centre too. Rooms are a bit worn out but still OK. Beds are confortable. Table for work purposes and enough of light for late work. Just an average hotel.... More

The hotel was fresh and newly renovated, the rooms are nice. Ask for a room on the top floors, then the noise from the main square will not bother you. This is mostly a problem during weekends. Breakfast was good, better than average S-Hotel standard. The lobby is small and located inside a shopping mall, might confuse some. But the... More

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
