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

This hotel has been recentely renovated and rooms are quite modern and clean. Nothing wrong with the rooms and buffet breakfast is according to the good Sokos hotel standard . Even if the doors are soundproof the noices from outside the hotel (there is bar downstairs and the hotel in by the central squeer) can be heard. Also party packets,... More

This hotel has a great location right on the central square within walking distance to the seaside. We had a superior room which was nice and overlooked the central square. A bit small for a superior room but well appointed. The only bad point, I wasn't told about having to drive into the underground parking to access reception and check... More
