“A family-friendly hotel”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 13, 2014

We decided to made an ex tempore visit to Helsinki and got a good deal for a family room with the S-card. We appreciated:
+ nice and spacious family room with all the necessities (incl iron and hairdryer)
+ paying attention to our kid (crib, drawing book, pencils, shower duck)
+ friendly, helpful staff
+ easy access by a car & fairly inexpensive parking
+ tram stop almost in front of the hotel and a metro&train station close by
+ breakfast buffet & Onni the squirrel's visit at the breakfast lounge
+ children's playroom.

Buyt we didn't like so much:
- poor soundproofing at least close by the elevators
- lack of the air con and hot room (although you could open the window).

We could visit again.

This hotel chain has done a lot of personnel training during the past year (so I've read) and it showed remarkably during our visit. The reception staff was very friendly and they helped with all our requests. The location is very good if you have your own car: the parking costs 14e per day, just leave your car there and take the tram to the city centre.
There is a new gym downstairs (with extra cost) and they have virtual training classes (I had to try it out, it was fun). Sauna department free of charge at morning and evening. Breakfast very good and fresh. Different porridge every day, which was nice.
Our standard twin room with sofa was very big, the room had also a walk-in wardrobe. Everything clean. I don't know about AC, during our visit the weather was quite cold, so the room temperature was ok. My only complaint is the sound insulation in rooms. You can hear all the moving of the chairs, closing of doors, etc. As ear plugs solve this problem, I would definitely stay in this hotel again.

This hotel is rather practical. Do not expect any additional luxury, the hotel is rather old. It is okay to stay for a night if you want to visit Seurasaari island, it is more or less a 40 minutes walk. Breakfast buffet is very nice.

I have booked the Sokos Hotel Pasila via Booking.com at a reasonable price and was very positively impressed by the Hotel. Quite neighbours near the secondary train station of Pasila. Just in front of the hotel there is TRAM 7B that in 7 minutes connects you with the City Center!
Hotel very clean, with free wifi, breakfast included and nice Spanish restaurant inside.
I recommend for A short business stay and enjoy Helsinki!

Nice restaurant and funny staff. And very nice staff at the reception. I certainly would stay here again and you have gym at the Hotel too. And there is a park not too far from the hotel. And second gym also very near the Hotel also lots of running paths.

A trip with one child and a big dog. A quick and kind service at the front desk. We had a spacious Standard Twin room (with an extra bed option), a plenty of room even for a bigger group. A clean and quiet room on the 4th floor on the inner court side. The chargeable parking place was a little bit narrow for a big car; you can get a discount by paying your S-card (if you had one). A breakfast was plenty and various, a fresh experiment.

Tips: A tram stop at the front of the hotel - get the Helsinki Card (www.helsinkicard.com) or a HSL day ticket (www.hsl.fi/en) and you don't need your car really; a park/forest next to hotel (200-300 m) - an excellent place for a peace (dog) walk.

Really happy with the way I slept during my stay in this hotel. The beds are really good and it's calm all night. However the price of using the gym, squash court and the food is comparatively quite expensive.
Otherwise, good hotel and I'll recommend it when staying in Helsinki.

Thank you for your time to write this review. It is nice to hear you enjoyed your stay.
Gym is now under another company, so they have set the prices for that. But now it has a very good quality for exercise.
We hope to see you as our guest in a near future again!
