    Fantastic location. Comfy beds and pillows. Exceptional breakfast.

    Would have liked a coffee maker or kettle in room for early morning caffeine fix.

    Polite and relatively friendly staff.

    The room was a little bit worn-out and lacks even basic things common for other Sokos hotels (like slippers, for example).

    Excellent staff, the furniture and decor is a classic of Finnish functionalist design from the 1930's. Don't be put off by the proximity to the train station - it is a clean neighbourhood. Top tip: request a room with an exterior view (there are some with interior views).

    There is construction going on at the moment in the building - you could hear noises between 10am and 6pm. We were advised of this in advance.

    The hotel is very well located - in the very heart of Helsinki within walking distance to major points of interest. The personnel is friendly, efficient and helpful. Heated floors in bathrooms add more comfort tomyour stay - and you'll really need it!

    The hotel desperately needs renovation! Even the armrests of chairs in every room seem to remember the Olympic games of 1952 - so dirty and well used they are. General cleanlyness of the reception area, corridors and rooms desires much better. The sound isolation is insufficient taking into account that half of windows overlook tram ways... Breakfasts are generally good, but could offer some more variety.

    Superior room was clean, modern, and fit the four of us (two adults, 19 year old, 16 year old) nicely. Loved the location with public transportation just outside the hotel door and the large picture windows in the room. Great soundproofing in the rooms too for a quiet night's sleep. Staff was very helpful and spoke perfect English. Breakfast was included with the stay which was so helpful since food is a fortune in Helsinki. Very easy taking the Finnair bus from the airport to the hotel for 6,30 euro each way, stopping across the street from the hotel.

    Elevator was small and we had to wait 10 minutes to catch an open elevator to fit us and our bags upon checkout. No other problems with the elevator at non morning hours.

    Location is perfect. very close to main attractions. The room was big enough and super silent despite the noise outside knowing that it is located across the central station and busy streets around. I also love the department store inside the same building. very convenient!

    It was quite expensive for a one night solo stay. No free water unlike other hotels. other than than. It was a very nice stay.

    I liked the view from the room. I liked the comfortable bed.

    It was hard to get a table at breakfast.

    lovely ambience reminiscent of 1950's. Loved the statues and carvingsand HUGE foyers.

    When booking asked for sheets and blankets instead of dunas, Had to re-negotiate this on arrival.

    Nice big room, although at an extra cost. Great location. Direct access to Sokos shopping centre. Very helpful friendly staff.

    Breakfast is not comparable to similarly priced hotels. Too few elevators. Very long corridors. Toilets, a bit old fashion, with steeply sloped ground. No sufficient noise isolation between rooms.

    The location is great. Everything is at walking distance.

    The hotel is very old and it seems as if it has not ever been renovated.

    Good room, with a good bed. Enough water pressure in shower, nice breakfast. Friendly staff. Nice central location.

    Small elevators. Not a guarded luggage room. A bit expensive. Not that many international channels on TV, I do not understand Finnish.

    The only reason is because of location.

    We booked a Junior Suite for 2 nights, we totally can't stand for a suits which comes with 5 little rooms. Every part of it were divided into apart, such as toilet, shower room, bedroom, living room and luggage area. Both side of the bed is just 10inch away from wall, and finally we requested to change another room which is better, at least just 3 rooms in the suits. Room is old and kind of dirty, just totally different as showen from picture, no bell boy to follow up luggages and even for luggage storage you have to handle by yourself. P.S. An old man in the counter help us to check-in for room, he told us since trolley cannot fit into the customer's lift, at that time he's going to allow us to use the staff lift! No one wanna use the staff lift actually as there is none of bell boy in the hotel!
