The most beautiful hotel in Hämeenlinna. Big cosy suites with a big balcony and amazing view on the lake, extremely friendly staff and excellent food ! Everything is close, town centre, the railway station and swimming places ... We keep coming back - really love this place !!! 💛

Our room was like new, very clean and nicely decorated with a minibar and a balcony. The staff was friendly and breakfast good. Only minus was the parking that costs 11 euros for a day.. The shopping centre Goodman was quite near the hotel.

Room had only basic facilities. It was however quiet and clean. The hotel is located near the lake with very nice view. The railway station is also near by so the connection e.x. to Helsinki is easy with train.

The Vaakuna Sokos Hotel seemed to me at first like a good hostel. Room was clean but very small and besides a bed there was nothing in it. I asked for a desk to put my computer on and it was brought to me. As said on one of the reviews, the walls are a paper. The staff, though, was... More

We stayed over night during weekend, but didn't test the restaurant. Service on the front desk was ok and everything worked well. Our double room was clean but very small. The location is around 1,2 kilometers from the center of Hämeenlinna, but only 200 meters from the railway station. There is no drive through traffic to make noise, we could... More

Booked this hotel for weekend. Basically, pretty satisfied, but expected little bit more from superior type of room, it is very basically equipped, minimal style. But in overall everything was fine - clean room, fast check-in, good breakfast, nice sauna. I wouldn't stay in this hotel for a long term, but for short visit - recommend.

- Walls in hotel are paper: you can hear everything from neighbour rooms. We were able to sleep about three hours. People were not partying, they were just living their normal life when travelling. - View from the room is straight to backyard trash cans.

Spent one night here, parking just outside the hotel, with a fee. Hotel is under renovation, we stayed in a renovated double room. New interior is really basic: no minibar, no wardrobe, plain wooden floor (which I actually like). No AC, we woke up in the morning when the sun was making the room very hot. No ice machine, I...
