Room has been renovated lately. Service was friendly and overall, Hotel was good compared to other Original level Sokos Hotels I have visited. Our group used sauna facilities that were not excellent but ok. Buffet lunch that was served was exceptionally good for a basic level chain Hotel.

Ok hotel for a quiet night with good bed. Clean hotel and fine breakfast buffet. Easy check-in and out. Easy and free parking just alongside the hotel (outside) Close/walking distance to city centre. Fair price/comfort ratio.

Easy to be accessed, large parking but close to the city center. The rooms are large and comfortable but the pillows and the bed are too soft. Good services, personnel is polite, all the areas are clean. Didn't taste the restaurant but the breakfast is ok and with Nespresso caffè machine!

Hotel is clean and quiet. Location is fine. Walking distance from center. Lobby bar is cosy. But if there is no sauna available in finnish hotel at weekend evenings maximum rating is three. Average rating of Sokos hotels.

The brand Original Sokos Hotel seems to vary a lot and this was not their best hotel. The reception was stalled when we arrived, I'd expected more fluent service, especially on busy summer season. The hotel had many families and kids were very well taken care of which was nice to see. The hotel was quiet and peaceful which was... More

Can use a swimming pool instead of the overgrown planter, because it will make the hotel more money. The people that visit Tyykymaki will spend more time there spending money on food and drinks rather than going elsewhere! Brilliant!

Room was clean. Only small inconvenience was the shower. Water pressure was more breath from cow than desent shower. That's something they gotta fix.... More
