“Very good value for money”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 24, 2014

I have vsited this hotel a couple of time and have to say it is a good choice for anyone traveling to Helsinkin. The hotel is quite new with an OK restaurant downstairs. It has very nice quality rooms. The normal ones are a bit small but bed is very nice, the business rooms are very spacy even big. All and all good Sokos Hotels quality (This is a Finnish 4 star hotel chain). Also the location is good, just a small walk from the Helsinki city center area. The car park is not so big beside the Hotel. There is no carage.

Room Tip: Business rooms are very big.

The service was friendly, the room romantic and large enough, and the bathroom well-equipped. The internet connection worked smoothly and, finally, the breakfast was awesome. The thing I liked least was that the location: the hotel is a bit far away from the railway station and airline buss stops.

I have stayed here for a couple of times during business trips in Helsinki. The hotel is located a few blocks from the center of Helsinki. The rooms are good and modern and the breakfast is tasty. Do not have too high hopes of the marketed "gym" since it is only one small room.

Stayed with 2 small kids and we loved everything about this hotel. Extremely friendly staff and great breakfast with good coffee and fresh strawberries to name a few. Clean and inspiring playing area for kids in the lobby. A spacious and clean family room is recommended for everyone traveling with kids.

We had one night in this hotel and it was so enjoyable. There did not appear to be a doorman, but the lovely girl from reception jumped up and opened the heavy doors so we could get our luggage into the hotel. The room was very clean and comfortable. The breakfast was great and we also had a delicious buffet lunch in the hotel restaurant. The No.6 tram is just down the street which will take you into the main part of the city. Just behind the railway entrance is the airport bus. When we checked out, instead of paying a large taxi fare, we simply took the tram, then the airport and for a few Euros and little effort, we were at the airport. I thoroughly recommend this hotel, extremely friendly and helpful staff....a great place to stay.

I had originally booked to stay at another Sokos hotel in the outskirts of Helsinki but, due to a booking mix up, when i arrived there was told there were no rooms available.
But, to their credit, the receptionist rang around and eventually found me a room at the Solo Sokos Hotel Aleksanteri in central Helsinki.
Only a short walk from the main shopping area and close to the ferry and some of the more interesting sights, this hotel would be a good base if you wanted to sight-see around Helsinki centre.It is only ten minutes walk from the train station so quite easy to get around town without needing a taxi. They also have a bike-hire scheme if you want to travel further afield under your own power.
The hotel's restaurant is a little quirky but serves up a very nice breakfast and they also have a very good selection of evening meals.
My room was comfortable and well appointed but you'd have to go for the more expensive rooms in the older part of the building.
Staff are all friendly and very helpful with excellent English spoken by everyone on the staff.
As this was a fall-back, it turned out to be a nice surprise. Well worth staying here.

Room Tip: If you want a little more luxury, ask for one of the rooms in the older part of the hotel.

Stayed here recently for work. The hotel reception is very much like a boutique hotel and is very attractive. The rooms are a little quirky and the room doors open outwards and look a little like prison cell doors although this is only an observation. The beds are very comfy and the bathroom is perfectly adequate for a nice shower or relaxing bath. The wardrobe situation in a few of the walls is again quirky as it is a hanging wall! There is tea coffee hot chocolate available in the rooms plus a mini bar. One thing I was disappointed in was the lack of room service menu in the room. They do do room service but there is no way to order anything unless you go to reception to do it.

I enjoyed staying here and am looking forward to going back at the end of the month.
