Nice experience in Vaasa meeting with colleagues from different parts of Europe for International Week at VAMK. The hotel is situated in the city center in walking distance from all attractions. The hotel has a nice restaurant but also surrounded by nice places for an excellent meal.

Nothing to complain. Hotel is a bit older but fullfills all requirements! Fitness, Sauna, Food and a good bed! Two restaurants are in the same building. one of them is more fancy and has great steaks and blinis, the other is more mexican streetfood. from both restaurants you can book the bill to you room number!

No much to stay, seems that Sokos basically have a monopoly on the hotel scene in Vaasa. Typical overpriced average quality Sokos hotel. Finland is starting to wake up regarding how bad the S group is for the restaurant industry. I can only hope they do so with the hotel industry soon.

The rooms are dated with very old-fashioned designes, a lot of signs of wear and tear, however the bed is comfortable, coffee & tea & hot chocolate is available, wifi is speedy and the whole hotel is clean and cosy. Amazing hot shower....

Been here for 10+ years, probably 50+ times. Same issues as usual: - Laundry bag not collected - New empty laundry bag not provided - the floor in the bathroom laid completely wrong (water runs out of the shower, big time) This time extra surprise: I come back to the room and I find some rubbish on the desk.

I stayed in the hotel for two nights. It was fine, and it is a good place to stay if you want a central location. The staff in the reception were nice and friendly, and service fast. The rooms were large, and the beds comfortable. The free wireless was also quite fast. There were a water boiler and possibilities for...
