The best of this hotel is position on main square. My room was very old, like I sad 3 star. The worst was on the breakfast, I come on the breakfast at 09.20 and breakfast was till 09.30. Usually you can come in restaurant till 09.30 and normal eat. But here at 09.30 thay move all from the tables. Wi... More

Hotel is centrally located and all services are next door. I was traveling with family (2+2) and at least room we received was large enough to accomondate extra bed and crib. Hotel restaurant was a bit slow on dinner service. Breakfast was good and families was well noted. Playroom for kids had also nice features.

I stayed at Sokos Hotel Vaakuna in Vaasa for 2 nights during a business trip. Let me tell the positive things first: The location is perfect, in the middle of the town. The staff at the front desk was very friendly and the breakfast was nice. I stayed in a single room which was pretty spacious. There was also a... More

We were two couples and in our room the aircon did not work, in the other room it did work. The rooms were clean, beds ok, pillows too flat, but we slept ok. The location is great and the reception service was friendly. For a more quiet room, try one that is not facing the street

Reception staff as well as house keeping staff are exceptionally friendly. Rooms are well equipped and pretty big. Some rooms have a boring view to the back yard, but the ones facing the market square have a very good view over the city. Hotel's own restaurant is somewhat worn out and would need to brighten up. The same place is... More

Try to book The Cabin for a different experience. The room is set up as a fisherman's cabin down to the smallest detail. Costs a little bit more than the ordinary rooms, in my opinion it was still worth it. Just a few steps away from the sauna that continues the same theme. Breakfast is average, however the hotel has... More

I've stayed in many Sokos Hotels and there's always the certain quality to expect. Like the other ones in this chain, Vaakuna was big but quiet and clean. We arrived very late, or should I say early because it was 2.30AM. The reception had made our key cards ready and we could go in to the room without any paperwork.... More

+ Good location in the city centre + Breakfast and the restaurant were good + Free Wi-Fi which worked fine + We had a pet room which was quite small but otherwise no complaints - Pillows were really lousy, but the bed itself was ok
