Sokos Hotel Helsinki is in the middle of culture. National Theatre, National Gallery, National Library and a lot more is just around the corner. The hotel is quiet, rooms are nice and service is very good. Ecxellent Place for cultural adventures

Very good location in the middle of the city centre. No noise from the streets in the nighttime even stayed from saturday to sunday. Double room was big enough for two persons and quite clean. Good breakfast and friendly staff.

Nice, clean room, good breakfest and friendly staff. Hotel is located close to restaurants, shops etc., still being quiet enough to be able to sleep properly. Will definitely stay again when traveling to Helsinki.

Great location and awesome food. The service excellent. Traffic noise was not disturbed at all. A short distance to the train and tram. Room too bulky for one person. Shower corner should be bigger in size.

This hotel is situated in the middle of everything; if you only need to stay in the city centre, you can walk anywhere, no need to extra transportation. Good breakfast, maybe somewhat small facilities for comfortable eating but all in all, it was okay. A good one, I can recommend.

Excellent location in the middle of Helsinki city center, good restaurants in it and nearby but parking hall income was quite difficult to find and less than one day parking cost 36 €, it was rather expensive.

Good location, e.g. near the railway station. Nice restaurant on the ground floor of the hotel. The breakfast was big enough. The price quality relation was good. The room was peaceful. I can recommend the hotel.

Good selection of food for breakfast, good location, easily accessible to town and other parts of Helsinki. Opposite the hotel is a MacDonald's and a Subway. Reception staff were helpful as we needed assistance to get to the nearest A & E.

The room was nice and very pleasant. And the staff was friendly and very helpful. I did not get any breakfast, because i slept too late. So that was my own fault. Location was exellent, because there was a lot to do at the center of Helsinki.
