    Breakfast service is very good. Quality and organisations first rate.

    View into mcdonalds. I had to close the curtains most of the time.

    Location in the city centre Good breakfast

    Old, dull, dark, not well maintained bathroom. Empty room, sounding hollow, spartan, unpleasant. Sauna open only 2h/day (during dinner time!)

    Helpfulness of reception staff Cleanliness

    There were no facilities in the room to make a hot drink. This was especially disappointing when we arrived very late at night.

    Loved the location, within walking distance to everything.

    Was supposed to have air conditioning, but did not! A fan does not count as AC. Tried 2 rooms, first one was probably 35C, second slightly cooler, perhaps 30C. No ice machine, no soft drink vending machines and no place to get cold drinks after 11pm

    very quiet, comfortable sleep; expansive breakfast options

    They did not clean my room in between the two days I stayed there and the room was quite cold, I called the reception, but they were not very helpful, the thermostat didn't seem to work. I expected much more for the price I paid.

    central location; very helpful and friendly staff; wide choice at breakfast; fairly quiet despite several bars and restaurants in the area

    room slightly on the small side and could do with some refurbishment

    The location is excellent for getting to know the city. Most of Helsinki's main attractions, shops and points of interest are within a walking distance.

    The hotel is very expensive for what it offers. The decor is very tired, the amenities are very limited and the hotel is quite restless with lots and lots of young adult revellers.

    Great location, very much appreciated welcome package for the 2 small dogs. Very friendly staff and big room.

    Last year we had a discount on the nearby parking facility. Not a big deal.

    poor breakfast, the cleaner did not clean the floor during our stay. Expensive for the available facilities. weak WiFi. very old furniture.

    location is good

    ac was not working and it was really warm and could not sleep. For us it was just really important to have a good night sleep because we had to travel elsewhere after but the only thing hotel offered was just to open the window which was not really helping. too expensive for this kind of room.

    Outstanding staff service! Terrific location! Comfortable, clean rm and bath. Fabulous daily breakfast brunch of 30 or so tasty items!

    More customer control of air conditioning. My husband would have liked it a wee bit cooler.

    Good location of the hotel. The staff was very helpful, good breakfast.

    Was hot in the room due to hot weather and was no air conditioner.

    The location of the hotel is excellent. The staff are superb, very friendly and helpful. The room was very clean and the bed comfortable. Having 2 restaurants to choose from was very good. The choice of food for breakfast was excellent.

    I stayed 2 nights in one room, and a further night in another. The room for the second visit did not have a comfortable chair to watch TV (although the TV did rotate so I could watch it in bed). The service in the Memphis restaurant was very slow in terms of the preparation of food in the kitchen (front-of-house serving staff were very good). Need more chefs in kitchen? 40 minutes is a long wait!

    Central location, helpful and friendly staff, good restaurant and good breakfast. As always with Sokos it's well worth upgrading to a Superior Room and a little extra cost.

    The central location meant it was a a bit noisy but that's not te hotel's fault.

    Hotel location and facilities.

    Everything is fine. It would have been perfect if there tea coffee facilities with cups, kettle in the room Queuing in the morning for breakfast.

    The breakfast was excellent and the location was superb. The staff were very friendly and welcoming.

    I prefer not to say.

    The location was really convenient - near to the train station and within walking distance to the docks to take the ferry to Suomenlinna.

    No tea/cofffee making facility was provided in the room. The reception was under staffed - there was only one person on duty in the morning which doesn't help when you have a long queue of people trying to check out. The drainage in our shower/bath tub didn't work properly - had to wait for quite a while for the water to subside.
