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...

Headline - Comfortable but dated hotel in a central position, split over two sides of the road via a tunnel. I'd certainly stay here again. Good Points - Very central location - Free breakfast - Comfortable beds - Good selection of restaurants downstairs, the Mexican was excellent and O'Malleys is good for a pint - Excellent gym, although an additional...

Had visited this hotel previously when it was under a different name. Sokos had updated it somewhat. We still had to go across the street for breakfast, but it was very substantial and not that inconvenient.

I have stayed in this hotel for two weeks during my business trip to Vaasa and I can say that I am really comfortable with this hotel. The room is large and being cleaned everyday. Bathroom has a bathtub, with warm shower. The towels are also being warmed while they are in the towel rack. I also enjoy walking through...

We were allocated to the Central part of the hotel, and it was not to the Sokos chain standard, in my opinion. The room was very dated, and the way to the room felt like you are moving through prison. The Pool was not clean enough to my taste, but I guess it is used a lot. The breakfast was...

The room was comfortable and warm, the staff were friendly and helpful. This was my second time and hopefully not my last! With the restaurant and pub on the premises it is a 1 stop shop for those who choose not to venture. This was not me though. Breakfast across the road was wonderful, so many choices of fresh food,...
