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

Dear Golfaten, Thank you for your stay at our hotel and for your time to write this review. We hope that the location was suitable for you. It´s about ten minutes walk to the center of Hämeenlinna and the hotel is very near to the railway station. Guest reviews give us guidelines to constantly develop our breakfast buffet. Thank you!...

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.

We stayed at Sokos Hotel Vaakuna for 3 nights during Wanaja Festival event. Compared to many other hotels we have stayed in Finland and abroad this one gets favourite points for comfortable beds, clean and renovated room (basic modern style, just how we like!), sound-proof walls and of course, location and friedly staff! We borrowed bikes one day and took... More

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...

Hello Eidu, Thank you for your review. Our hotel is still under renovation, all rooms will be ready at the beginning of August. It´s true that interior is more simple than before. We have replaced wardrobes by clothing rods and floor mats by wooden floor. There are no minibars in the standard rooms, but the lobby bar is open every... More

Lots of poor reviews, but with a limited availability across the Valentine weekend, and with only a few minutes walk to the music club where a friend's band was playing, this was the best choice of hotel. And actually - wasn't that bad. Check in was very friendly and helpful. The hotel has recognised the need for refurbishment, and we... More

Usually Sokos hotels are all the same, but this hotel is way below average. Everything is wearing and tearing. In our first room door of the closet just dropped off on it's hinges and blocked whole entrance. Reception gave us other room, but none other compensation. The other room was in terrible condition as well. Parquet was very old and... More
