We were two couples and in our room the aircon did not work, in the other room it did work. The rooms were clean, beds ok, pillows too flat, but we slept ok. The location is great and the reception service was friendly. For a more quiet room, try one that is not facing the street

Reception staff as well as house keeping staff are exceptionally friendly. Rooms are well equipped and pretty big. Some rooms have a boring view to the back yard, but the ones facing the market square have a very good view over the city. Hotel's own restaurant is somewhat worn out and would need to brighten up. The same place is... More

Try to book The Cabin for a different experience. The room is set up as a fisherman's cabin down to the smallest detail. Costs a little bit more than the ordinary rooms, in my opinion it was still worth it. Just a few steps away from the sauna that continues the same theme. Breakfast is average, however the hotel has... More

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
