A modern hotel with great rooms. The hotel is next to Kamppi and also walking distance from the railway station (aprox. 450m). I have always gotten great service here. Every floor has a different theme and they are all lovely. The hotel has a small gym.

I've visited couple times in a conference in this hotel and this time I stayed overnight. The building is a classic timepiece and you should leave yourself a little bit time for exploring different details which tell you about the history of this hotel and Finland. A room was nice and clean but views were towards a lower roof, next building etc. so very boring. Luckily I didn't spend time here watching views, I know Helsinki. Another disappointment was a temperature of sauna. It was very low and because swimming pool temperature is usually quite cold in finnish hotels (representing a lake feeling) it wasn't so comfortable experience this time. Breakfast was good, go early so you'll get a window seat!

We have visited this hotel many times before. The location at the centre of Helsinki is perfect, the hotel has been recently renovated, great breakfast buffet, and the staff has been always very helpful and kind. The problem this time was a big group of other guests who had their own party at many floors (including ours...) after the restaurant downstairs closed the doors at midnight. So...not a lot of sleep...singing was heard at 5.40am still... We were told in the morning by the receptionist that they tried to take over the situation but did not succeed as there were so many people (and all drunk). We were given a 1 night voucher as reimbursement...I think they took care of this professionally even though we were naturally very tired and pissed off on the noise... Still... I recommend this hotel and will visit again... But will check next time that the "Nuorkauppakamari" won't be organizing their gala at the same time there...

This time we got our suite from the 4th floor which is the winter storm floor. Every floor has a different theme. The suite is very spacious and all of them have a stylish sauna. The room was well equipped with different styles of cups and glasses and with four television sets. The only thing, which disturbs the practicality, is that the main bathroom has only showers. The sinks are in the other bathroom. Also, we don't like portion-packaged toiletries. It is very unecological. It is the same thing at every Sokos Hotel. Beforehand we knew that breakfast at this hotel is usually very hectic. So we ordered the room-service breakfast which was very good despite we didn't order the 3 euros extra sausages and bacon. We paid 2 x 15,40 for our breakfast.

I enjoyed my stay and couldn’t fault the room . I was however very disappointed with the breakfast during this corona time. There was little or no evidence of social distancing or regulating the number of people using the dining hall at one time. It was more crowded than when I have stayed on previous occasions. Apart from a few bottles of hand sanitizer one would never have known there was a pandemic. Only time will tell whether a second wave will occur due to this rush to return to normality.

Dear melaniewJ5331HP, Thank you for your feedback. It warms my heart to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us and that you liked our themed rooms! My sincerest apologies that you didn't feel protected in our breakfast. Now during corona time we take the safety of our clients and employees very seriously and follow the government guidelines very strictly. Unfortunately as we are a very big hotel, sometimes there are rush hours in the breakfast if all of our clients happen to go to the breakfast at the same time. Your feedback is very valuable to us and I am glad to inform that now we are taking more actions to avoid rush peaks at our breakfast. Thank you once again for taking the time to write us and hoping to see you again here in Helsinki! Kindest regards, Dona Service Manager / Reception
