I stayed in the Sokos Vaakuna July 7 - 10, 2011. The hotel room had everything I needed, and a large balcony to boot (I had a 9th floor room). The balcony looked right onto the square, and the train station below. The front desk staff was very helpful; the the hotel's location cannot be beat! The Vaakuna is one of about six Sokos hotels in Helsinki, and this one is the most centrally-located. Also, I had free Wi-Fi in my room.
