First make sure you have the right Sokos hotel, there are 10 of them in Helsinki.
This one is right by the main railway station and thus ideal for us. Booking in was friendly and efficient, the room was spacious, we had a balcony on the 9th floor. Note they have twin beds, though i suspect the next door pulled them together by the sound of it. The tv options Include Internet on screen with wireless keyboard. This has a fee of 8E per 24 hours.
The hotel is floors 6-10 above a department store.
Helsinki is not exactly bursting with attractins and we opted th go on a day trip to Tallinn in Estonia and explore the Old Town. Well recommended. Catch a 5 bus outside the hotel to the Western port Good breakfast on the 10th floor. No negatives at all, happy to recommend.
