“Cool, clean and convinient”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed September 16, 2012 via mobile

Went to stay @ Flamingo with the family and were really pleased and satisfied with virtually every aspect of our stay. Arrival was smooth, checkin fast thou crowded and room very clean and practical when staying with two little boys (3 and 1). Breakfast hade everything we needed and a spacious dining area so we as a family could spread out in a remote corner and do what families with kids do, without disturbing the businesscrowd.

The location is priceless when travelling by car and parking is free. The hotel is situated within and entertainment complex and connected to a huge mall so you basically have everything you need under the same roof. Loads of restaurants supply every crawing and the Spa was very relaxing and not crowded at all (on a weeknight).

A couple of pointers.

- the reception is on floor One, worth remembering when parking, otherwise you have to take an elevator from the parking garage to the hotel to get to our room

- living higher up the building is totally worth it, to watch the ringroad and the traffic there and planes taking off was fun for the kids and kind of cool at night fot the adults

- the spa and the hotel are different companies, so you pay extra, also a swimmingdiaper is mandatory for infants (can be purchased for 2 euros)

- the service at the hotel was warmhearted and genuin, thought I'd ad that just to emphazise it, as its a bit rare theese days

- care a lot about the environment? Flamingo is one of a few Sokos Hotels in Finland that have received the Swan-tag for their work with enviromentaly issues, such as reducng laundry and waterconsumtipn

Second stay for me here, first time in the summer(?), it's only around 18€ away from the airport (taxis are expensive in F), it means about 5 minutes drive.

This is the ideal location, the hotel is in a kind of shopping center, you'll find on ground floor restaurants, bars, all possible retail shops, consider it in the winter when you don't want to go out, it's just easy.

The rooms are quite big and around 25m2 + bathroom, TV is offering programs in Finnish, English, turkish and Russian language, internet is rapid and for free.

The bathroom are new and well equipped, everything fine there.

The front desk is very friendly and helpfull. (all young people with a big smile, special award for them)

You'll ahve breakfast in a very big room, but you'll have good quality food there.

Very nice hotel and great for breakfasts, very good variety.
Room was compact but still very comfortable, slept well every night.
Wireless was free which is great.
100% will return for sure.
Good location within the shopping center.

This hotel is convenient, and clean with a good choice of breakfast. Set inside a shopping centre there are plenty of choices of places to eat and things to do provided you are not there too long. I stay on a regular basis and will always return as convenience and speed of service are essential for any business traveller.

Sokos Flamingo is my favorite place to stay when leaving from Finland. It's clean and convenient: close to the airport and connected to Jumbo shopping mall. Breakfast is standard Sokos quality... huge variety comparing to American hotels! You can't really compare them at all! :-) Rooms are good size and staff is friendly and helpful. If you need a cab drive to the airport during any holidays it might be good to pay 10 euro reserve fee. There is a taxi station right in front of Flamingo, but there also will be a line during the busy times of the year. Hotel staff will reserve the cab for you, but the taxi companies will require fee for it.

If you need to do last minute shopping, you can find everything in Jumbo mall. There are also several restaurants and fast food places inside the mall. Families with children have lots of options for activities including water park inside Flamingo. All in all this is a great place to spend your last night in Helsinki!

Quite a standard Soko hotel - it was clean, relatively fresh, service was good and rooms were clean and good. What makes a difference is the whole Flamingo-entertainment centre where the hotel is located. There's miniature golf, bowling, a cinema, a spa and a waterpark, several restaurants and the Jumbo-mall is connected to the centre.

We had a standard room for 2 adults and one child (2y) for one night.
The room was clean, big enough, but nothing special. The view from 12th floor was nice. I took some lovely sunset photos over the city there.
There are so much to do without a need to go outside the complex. We had a nice afternoon in the spa, made some shopping. We will probably come back sometime in the future.
