“A great place to stay”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 4, 2012

Stayed in Sokos Hotel Vaakuna in May, and was really surprised how great the hotel was. Stayed in a suite and it was fantastic: very comfortable bed, own private sauna and very good size bathroom with the massive power shower. "living room" area was spacious and the suite itself very modern. Staff in reception was very friendly and professional, breakfast was good, Aula bar had good music and looked also very modern and chic. I will definetely stay on this hotel in future and will recommend this hotel to anyone to stay.

Room Tip: Corner suite has a view over the main road and car park but is also very quiet room.

This is the famous pink hotel in the city centre of Kouvola. The location is very good: a peaceful place in the city centre!

There is a Finnish sauna (separated for men and women) with a jacuzzi (whirlpool), free for hotel guests. Also a free gym and private saunas (extra cost) with a jacuzzi.

Also family rooms, superior rooms (with or without an own sauna), minisuites (32 square meters) and suites (53 square meters). Air-conditioning in all rooms.

There is a rich varieties of breakfast too. If you like to have a free sauna in the morning, it is a good place. Staff is so friendly and make you feel home. Enjoy!

Room Tip: We had a double room with sauna inside, that was the first in life. Very good:)!
