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 !

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
