Score from 694 reviews Very good
Bed was very hard Breakfast was somewhat disappointing
It's 100 m from the central station. Quite and cosy
Location Greatly preserved original 50s style Easy access to anything in central Helsinki
Lifts are small (from the 50s) Stairs to lobby are a bit tricky if with plenty of luggage
It's beautiful building and furniture. Excellent staff and location was great for families. I loved the Marimekko aprons the wait staff wore. Excellent everything
The room was huge and breakfast spread was excellent.
Friendly desk staff
Cleaners slamming doors
No words to describe about convenient location to access the central station and Finair-airport shuttle bus terminal stop, just minutes walk, or almost every interest points including harbour area are within walk distance. The room prepared is wide enough to spread large luggages, as well, simple but the bath room with a bathtub and shower is clean and well spaced. The restaurant located at the top of building provides good command of city view in sunset, and foods served are looked lapish originated, good taste and all can be justified with it's price. Above all I'm happy to see some lapish small dishes can be prepared for starters. enjoyable to have various starters at a time.
Though window is double glassed, the heavier traffics of cars and street trains were little bit noisy outside during late night. The steps at main entrance is strenuous to carry laggages up into reception floor. One services I would like to ask them at the restaurant was to serve Sparkling wine in a win cooler with ice and water.
This hotel is located very close to the bus terminal to the airport. During my stay, I could enjoy the Finnish sauna. And the breakfast is good enough.
Very friendly, thoughtful, and helpful staff. Very convenient location. Good buffet breakfast.
Position. Access to all transport could not have been better
I booked through you but I have friends who booked from the uk ,at the same time, for the same period. They shared a room , yet when their price in sterling was converted ,they paid about 2/3 the figure I paid. When queried with staff, the difference was shrugged off. I find it unacceptable that 2people sharing a room,paid roughly €200 less than I did
I love the presence of the water heater and the presence of tea, coffee, water and some fruit and a toothbrush and Map
I do not like the presence of whiskey in the room
Private balcony Well located for all activities in Helsinski My room was located in a calm area, I sleep very good Very good wifi connection, top speed Kind of nice retro room, I liked it and really felt like I was in a nice place
Breakfast! Not sure what they tried to do with the scrambled eggs ... Staff was ok... They wanted to charge me some minibar I didn't drink... Table and desk were not cleaned, marks on the bed blanket, marks on the carpet.
Finland and Helsinki but not hotel
Hotel which was very noisy, room unclean, poor breakfest
Fantastic location. Comfy beds and pillows. Exceptional breakfast.
Would have liked a coffee maker or kettle in room for early morning caffeine fix.
Nice, clean, modern room with a view on the central station. Despite being located in the busiest part of the city the noise inside was very minimal. During my stay it was unusual warm for Finland (over 30c) however no problem with airco I had a good sleep. Breakfast was on the 10th floor which gave a nice view over Helsinki. There's even an outside roof terrace.
Breakfast was pretty basic, not very special. But the quality was ok.
No coffee and tea facilities
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).
wifi need login again and password
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.
A really nice, quiet and comfortable room. Great breakfast selection and kindly staff
the location. the room.
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.
Music that was played during childrens breakfast. It was very annoying.
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.
