Good location Tasty breakfast Great staff Affordable price
Good location & nice breakfast. Staff was helpful.
Very slow check in, curtains that didn't fit, adequate cleanliness. Just didn't feel like there was much care in the management of this hotel...
Very good location in Helsinki. Very good food at the restaurant. Nice staff.
Staff are very kind
Bed was unimaginably comfortable
We booked superior room but it didn't feel like a superior room at all. But still, it was spacious and comfortable.
In October of 2014 we stayed our first time in “Original Sokos Hotel” hotel in Helsinki, Finland. We booked and stayed in triple room #505. Everything was very good. Hotel situated in the center of Helsinki. It takes only five minutes to get the Railway Station from the hotel by walk where you can take the trains to any other town of Finland or to Saint Petersburg and Moscow, Russia. It takes only three hours and fifty minutes to travel to Saint Petersburg, Russia by “Allegro” train. Big hypermarkets such as the “Stockman”, “Forum” and “Sokos” are situated in walking distance. The National Museum of Finland and Ferry Boat terminal are situated in ten-fifteen minutes walking distance. Taking that ferry boat you can get the Suomenlinna (Sveaborg) fortress with its museums. It will take about eighteen minutes walk to get the Military Museum at the intersection of Maurinkatu and Liisankatu Streets. There were the TV set, refrigerator with mini bar, central heating and air conditioner in the room. Such useful thing as the d iron was also found in the room. Bath room was big enough but without bathtub, instead there was shower cabin. It was big enough for even very tall and very fat person. The floor in the bath room was warmed by the heater. Hairdryer is available in the bathroom too. Everything was quite new and clean. Free Wi Fi is available in the Hotel. Free storage room is available before check in and after check out procedures. Food in the restaurant was good and plentiful. All personnel were very helpful and spoke fluent English. So, my conclusion is that hotel is excellent to stay in triple room!
Breakfast is really good, full of choice and tasty.
To use card- key in elevator
I will book there again next time I am in Helsinki. To use the elevator you must use your room key so only guests at the hotel can use the elevator that mad us feel very safe. In their breakfast they try to have a taste of finish tradition it was so good. I had few questions about trips and locations the staff was helpful and made sure I got all the best information.
The hotel is very conveniently situated for transport, shopping, harbour and ferries. There is a choice of two styles of restaurant on site, each very good in its respective style. The room was a good size, quiet, and well decorated. All levels of staff were helpful above the normal expected.
The one disappointment were the curtains. In October they did not fully block out the bright-light from adjacent buildings. This drawback could equally keep you awake at night in summer from the sun.
no gym no sauna no warm water cold rooms too expensive
This location is great if you want the city at your fingertips. And it is a surprisingly quiet place. In my younger days this would have been a terrific spot. Good for a quick overnight.
It felt like a gritty, city hotel. Bustling and just a little less than immaculate. Not at all bad, just not luxurious. Wifi was a little troublesome but for one night it didn't matter.
Good location, breakfast, security, and bed... All of good! Maybe nexttime i will use again to the hotel
Breakfast service is very good. Quality and organisations first rate.
View into mcdonalds. I had to close the curtains most of the time.
Excellent location and service.
No serious complaints.
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.
noisy street at side of the hotel
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
