Excellent service for those with food intolerance problems. Coffee tray in room complete with lactose free milk and a super breakfast with REAL gluten free bread and food on a separate table too to avoid contamination. Lovely staff and quick service at reception. Great location right next to the station and bang in the middle of a great shopping centre.

The price was way too high. We paid nearly 450 euro pr. night, then you have to do better. I know the town was buisy, but I find it unsatisfied that you raise the price that way without delivering on service and food. Breakfast is with a lot of different things but quality is low. Less is more:-)

Dear ccr12345, Thank you for taking time writing this review, we truly appreciate that. I am really sad to hear You were not satisfied with your stay. You are right, during these days Helsinki is full and that also affects the price. However, this should not affect the quality of the service. I will make sure to forward your feedback also to our restaurant manager so we could develop our breakfast. Thank you once again for your message and I still hope to see you in Vaakuna in the nearest future. Best regards, Sergey/ Original Sokos Hotel Vaakuna.
