Original SOKOS is centrally located and 5min walk to Stockmann shopping mall, boutiques and cafes. Macs is just a stone's throw away if you are desperate for food. Check out friends and brgrs or kebab cafe for great food located an alley away. Rooms are rather standard, nothing fanciful. Adequate breakfast spread; breads, cereals, meatballs, omelette, sausages etc. Lifts can...

Nice hotel, good location. Quiet room, only the music of the near-by coffee bar starts to irritate at 7 am! Good breakfast. Very friendly staff. Although we noticed when collecting our luggage at around 3 pm that during the busy hours it would be wise to have two receptionists instead of one.

Located right at the city centre, nearby places with tourist interest. The staff are friendly and helpful, also very efficient. The breakfast is good with enough choices. The room is spacious and the bed is comfortable. Only small flushing problem with the toilet.

Very good, nice facilities, great service, good breakfast and excellent location. Since we were traveling with a new born, we were offered to stay in a quite room, which was really nice. The price is a bit expensive, but if you come to Helsinki cheap prices are not something that you can easily find.

Excellent location. Hotel is located close both to the very city centre which was decorated at the Christmas eve, close to the Ateneum museum (Modilgiani exhibition at the time of my stay) and also walking distance to the central railway station. Friendly personnel was ready to give advice and provide answers to my questions. Good breakfast. Single standard rooms are...

We had a junior suite, which included its own sauna. The furniture was somewhat worn and modern minimalist: there were no drawers in the bedside cabinets, under the desk or in the cupboards, so storage was less than expected for a suite. There were 2 steps from the living area to the bed, so we left the computer screen on...

Perfect location in the heart of Helsinki. Service was very good. Room was clean though maybe a little fixing is needed, e.g. the door handles are little worn. I would also suggest to add smaller pillows to the bed.
