“Another great Sokos Hotel”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed August 31, 2013

We enjoyed the Sokos hotel in St. Petersburg, Russia so much, we booked this one. And were happy we did. It is a very nice hotel. It is clean and the service is great. Any type of shopping or dinning you would want are within a half mile walk. The food at the hotel is great. Every employee spoke great English. Bus, Streetcar, and subway very close.

Reasonable Hotel if you just want to be lost among the hordes . Not much in the way of personal service . Breakfast was reasonable but very bland and food not replenished as needed . Room was okay but dated and bathrooms prone to flooding as no maintenance seemed to be done on a regular basis . Unfortunately all three of our rooms had no black out curtains and made it very difficult to sleep . The hotel was in a reasonable location to the railway and bus services but was a long walk to town .

This hotel is within walking distant to museum, train station and major shopping centers. There is one shopping mall just right behind the hotel. But you have to walk one round from the entrance, only if they could open the back door, you can simply cut down the walking by half. There are 3 PC free to use at the lobby. As this hotel comes together with my tour package, I regret that I could not provide the price...

It is an average large hotel with quite comfortable, good size rooms. Sleep quality is very nice!
Breakfast is a chaos, loads of people in a big hall. Not the nicest of breakfast rooms. Breakfast itself is okay, but bacon is not well made (part burned, part undercooked).

I use this hotel every time I get a good price and I have business on that side on the city. Parking isn't great either, but that's the way it is in Helsinki.

If you are up for an amazing dining experience in Helsinki, restaurant Farang is quite close to the hotel. It is pricey, but totally worth it. Make sure to book a table well in advance!

This is one of the nicest hotels I've ever stayed in. The hotel is located in the centre of Helsinki, yet the room we had was very quiet. The staff is friendly and the room is of a decent size and clean. Everything worked very well, and the breakfast was excellent. The price was reasonable considering the quality of the hotel. I would definitely recommend this and visit the hotel again.

The hotel has a beautiful lobby, a decent breakfast, and comfortable beds. If I recall, it was one of the few hotels on our trip to Europe that had air conditioning. We also ate at the hotel's restaurant, but it was not a finnish restaurant. It was decent but a bit pricey. The hotel was packed but the receptionists did a great job at helping everyone. The hotel is right in the city center. It is a short walk (five minutes) to the train station and Finnair bus which takes you to the airport. The hotel was clean and I didn't see another hotel that looked like it was any better from the outside nearby. The Vaakuna hotel next to the train station was above many stores and it was noisier there. So I think it was worth it to walk an extra five minutes to stay at this hotel. Breakfast was actually above average. It was a very large room which was good because it was packed. From the hotel it is about a ten maybe 15 minute walk to the Cathedral. I'm not sure if I will travel to Helsinki again, but if I do, I'd stay here again.
