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 !

Stayed here for a weekend night. The hotel was easy to find in Vaasa, but then the reception was not. So many doors and corridors in this shopping center complex. Staff was very friendly. They warned about the noise coming from the night club and placed me even even as high as possible. The room was nice and clean. This... More

If you want to stay right at the center of "Downtown Vaasa" Sokos is the place to stay, you couldn't get much closer to the center. The Hotel is located inside a shopping center, and it can be slightly difficult to find the reception, as well as the breakfast restaurant, but then again, you in the center, you're in a... More

I stay in Sokos a couple of times a year and I can tell its quite a good place. They have a friendly staff, its normal in Finland, rooms are clean and breakfasts are good. I don't like Mexican restaurant Amarillo too much, it doesn't worth if you want to have a good dinner. Lobby bar is ok. Hotel sauna... More

It is right in the downtown, by the market square. The room in which I stayed was not facing the market place, so it was really quiet, but the view was plain and grey. The breakfast was smorgasbord style with quality food and a huge variety to choose from. The staff at the reception was really helpful and nice. I... More

The Vaakuna Hotel location is as central as it can be, parking OK in the undergroung parking hall, with direct access to the reception. The reception space itself is cramped, no cosy reception hall here. The personnel, however, were friendly and attentive. The room we got was on the 6th floor, newly renovated, spacious, good beds, big bathroom - we... More

The location is excellent by the market place. There can be noise on the rooms facing the square at nights. Friendly and nice service. There is a good access directly from the "Toriparkki" underground parking facility. The room was nice and clean. However, the work desk is pretty small if you must work in the room. The amenities in standard... More

Vaasa used to be a very beautiful city, but its main square has been spoiled by an architectural horror of enormous proportions, the Rewell Center. It fills one side of the square and is a good contender in the ugliest modernist buildings class in Finland. The hotel is just a small part of the house and accessible from a very... More
