My room floor was awful ugly! Room 421. Sink tube leak on the shower room floor. Windows could not be opened. Kyselyn kielivalikoimassa ei ollut kuin englanti, voisi suomalaiselle lähettää kyselynkin suomeksi!

Yet another good Sokos hotel experience: good location and really nice staff. However bad things were our room's poor sound proofing and really dry indoor air. Breakfast was pretty average, organic porridge and carelian pies were nice but coffee was not.

Nice small room, quiet. The bed was not good for the spine. The spine makes an U-shape while sleeping. The breakfast was good. The location was perfect for our purpose. There was nice way to show the history of the hotel, collage on the floors.

Very good Hotel and the location is great. Superior room wasn't as good as we hoped, though we got the bathtub as we asked for. The building and the rooms were old which was nice, but just very ordinary. Breakfast and the service was very good.

Okey stay at this hotel, good location. Good place to stay if you are going shopping, out to eat, sightseeing or to a bar at night. Rooms a bit outdated, especially the bathrooms. Noice from pedestrians could be heard well in to the rooms.

This hotel offers a large number of real single rooms, which is great if you don't want to share and also don't want to pay for a double/twin room as a single person. The room was spacious and clean and I slept very well on the comfortable bed. Breakfast was superb and the staff were all really friendly and helpful....
