I stayed for a night because of school reunion and Vaakuna is very central. Vaakuna, in 80's called Satakunta used to be THE place in Pori, rooms were high class, restaurant and bar first class, always good live dancing music. Vaakuna's staff was very helpful and nice, the room very basic, but clean, the breakfast was very busy. We did... More

During the past years I've stayed dozens of times in this hotel and after a break came back again, when my work brought me back to Pori. This hotel has many superb qualities: best possible location, dedicated and always friendly staff, newly renovated and comfortable rooms + one of the very best breakfast buffets in this country (including local Satakunta...

Remembering this hotel in the 80's. Now it was a lot different. No bar and restaurant in the hotel. You were advised to the tex-mex restaurant Amarillo next to the hotel. Also it was impossible to reserve a parking place in advance. Very odd! Our double room was O.K. but you should try to get a room towards the yard... More

We had a spacious double in backyard side. There were tv/minibar in the room. Toilet and shower could have been a little bigger. Service was good, staff helpfull. Breakfast is open till 1 pm...

The title says it all really, the hotel is old and dated, it is expensive for what it is, the rooms are small but clean. I stayed for just one night here. The restaurant was good and it also has a bar in it. I would stay again but only because it's convenient.

The hotel has a strange lay out with 2 buildings on both sides of a street connected by a tunnel. Room was new decorated, I heard that the rooms in the main building are looking tired. Very nice breakfast with local specialities. Nothing special, but good for a night or two.

This is a very uninspiring hotel, though kind of historic, the building itself is boring, and so are the rooms. I had a room in the newest part (built in the 1990s) - and it certainly looked very 90's, now old-fashioned and boring. I had a window overlooking the market square and though it was a quiet Tuesday night, it... More

Basic Sokos hotel located in the city center. Old style hotel with small rooms. Free wifi, good breakfast and nice staff. Several reastaurants and a pub in the hotel. Many restaurants, bars, shopping centers and shops close to hotel.

Staff are friendly, the breakfast is good, the Sauna is (not surprisingly) good, the parking is good, rooms clean. But its pretty uninspiring, but in the context of location, it is perfectly fine. The beds are not the most comfortable and bathrooms are tiny. But it will do for a night or two.
