Located outside the Helsinki city center but easy to reach by train from the city. Took less than ten minutes by train to Pasila railway station and then ten minutes to walk to the hotel. Great sauna facilities but there was not pool. Rooms are average Finnish standard. Compared to international hotels, rooms are clean and nicely furnished. Very good breakfast.

The location is perfect for those visiting Hartwall Areena (ten minutes walk) and good for those visiting Helsinki Fair Centre (15 minutes walk).

It is really a nice hotel to stay:)
At first, triple rooms are big and convenient. As the lock in the door of our first room was broken, we changed our room and the other one was as nice and as big as previous one.
The italian restaurant in the hotel is quite of good quality. It is nice to go there if you get hungry in the evening and you can have your dinner in the room:)
The breakfast was nice and really various, nearly fitting to everyone's taste.
The location is not very central, but if you are staying in Helsinki for 3 days, you can buy a transportation card and the tram station is right in front of the main entrance of the hotel :)
the staff was really good and as I accidentaly brake two bottles of beer in the mini bar, they told me that I don't have to pay for the damaged items.
The beds are big and convenient too:)
There is a small park in the vicinity of the hotel, so you can take a walk and there are several grocery shops, so you can buy snacks and drinks and take them to your room:)

We have stayed at the Sokos Pasila Hotel for three years in a row. The location of the hotel to the Helsinki Fair Center is superb.....just a ten minute walk and if the weather is bad, the tram will take you "door to door" to the Fair Center. For those who wish to move around the country by train, there is a major train station less than five minute's walk away. There are grocery stores, an Alko and restaurants nearby as well as a very nice Spanish restaurant at the hotel. The food is excellent and the value is extremely good. The rooms are typically Finn with lots of light wood. They are comfortable, nicely furnished without being fancy and have always been quite clean. On more than one occasion the Sokas chain has upgraded us to a suite with no extra charge. Downtown Helsinki is only a short cab or tram ride away. I have nothing but good to say about the staff. They have always been quite helpful for everything from checking in and calling cabs to assisting us in booking airfare on to Rovaniemi after the dog show.
We book our stays there through Destinia and prepay so we therefore get an EXTREMELY good rate on our rooms. A far better value than the Holiday Inn at the Fair Center.

We enjoyed our visit of Helsinki very much (the Finns are great people: very calm and respectful of others; the atmosphere of the city is quite nice and relaxing).
We were a little disappointed by this Sokos hotel though because we had not been warned that this particular hotel of the Sokos chain is undergoing renovation: we were awakened at 7 am by the sound of drilling; the restaurant had been moved to the breakfast room which meant no late breakfast for hotel guests and a perturbed room service.
Our room was large with good storage space but cleanliness was dodgy.
The staff I must stay was most helpful and nice.
The hotel is not located in the city center but this is not a problem at all: the tram stops right outside and the hotel surroundings are super calm while hotels in the city center are often located in streets with tall buidings resulting in rooms with no view.
This is clearly a family hotel: kids are welcome which does not make it noisy: Finnish kids are extremely calm and well behaved.
