The Sokos Vaakuna is perfectly located in Rovaniemi, close to all activities agencies and to the river banks where you can walk and enjoy the scenery. Nice breakfast buffet, good sauna, quiet rooms, smiling staff.

Ideal location, only 2 min from the station and very easy to go to from Helsinki airport thanks to the train line. It is ideally located in Helsinki centre. We arrived late in the evening (around midnight), we were tired and just wanted our room to rest. The check in process

We were here through our Viking Stockholm-Helsinki-Stockholm tour, which means this is a tour group hotel too, which can be good and bad. This was a good stay. The room and floor were quiet and I think we were in one of the refurbished rooms. They even had saunas! The

This was my second time in Helsinki, staying at this hotel. I had a very nice single room with good facilities, very comfortable bed and nice clean bathroom. The breakfast was extensive and covered every option with good strong coffee available.

Dear Lisa, yes, we are just next to the main railway station of Helsinki, where all the trains arrives and depart. West terminal is less than 20 mins away, where to catch the ferry to Tallinn. Easy to reach by the tram number 9 that runs every 10 mins.

I think not every hotel room has a full size bath, but you can ask for it, a lot of them do. Breakfast is served at the 10th floor. You'll have nice wievs over the roof tops of Helsinki. And yes: they do have possibility to prepare your own toast there among other possibilities. Have nice journey :D

Hi! Unfortunately we don't have our own shuttle service. The best way to reach the hotel is to take the Finnair city bus from the airport. The bus stop is approximately 50 meters from the hotel. It costs 6,30 euros per person and You may pay by credit card or cash. Other option is to take the taxi to the hotel and it costs about 45 euros.

"8th or 9th floor."
"We asked for a view of the station, was worth it! They are all high because you are above the shopping centre, no noise from the street."
"View to the main square. Sauna."
"If you are not used to traffic sound when sleeping, ask for a room away from Mannerheimintie"
"Rooms on the north side have the best views"
$165 - $319 (Based on Average Rates for a Standard Room)
