    Superb

    Location and overall appearance of hotel was good, along with helpful staff. Will return if I find good prices there.

  • 8.2
    Fabulous

    The hotel was very centrally located and good value for money however I was awoken twice during the night by loud music and late night revellers. It was a Saturday night but I would have asked for a quieter part of the hotel if I had been forewarned.

    Good

    Good location in the centre of the city, very close to central station and shopping district etc. Internet is free, though slow.

    The restaurant is in urgent need for an update. Rooms that face the street can be quite noisy.

    Very good

    Staff was friendly. Breakfast was very good though it was crowdy in the restaurant in the morning. Hotel is close to central railway station and centre of the city with a lot of restaurants, shopping, etc. around. Rooms are not very spacious but clean and well equipped.

    Hotel facing a pedestrian street, so, you have to walk about 100m with your luggage from the nearest place where the taxi can stop. It takes time for the airconditioning to cool down the room (but it's very quite).

    Fabulous

    Great location, confortable rooms, friendly staff, fast internet connection, heated floor in the bathroom.

    Old fashioned design (bathrooms seem to remember 70-ties), breakfasts could be better (standard selection of food, but awfull coffee, fermented orange juice on one day, frozen fruit salad on one day).

    Fabulous

    Sokos Hotel Helsinki is located in the heart of the city, it takes from to 2 to 10 minutes by foot to get to any of the museums, shopping centres, railway or bus station.

    Room was rather stuffy and all the windows were locked because of the conditioning system.

    Fabulous

    the staff was friendly and helpful. Good location near the railway station and the center of the city including the main square! Very good breakfast! One can leave their luggage at the safety deposit for free after checking-out and have a walk around the city before the departure.

    little space of the room and the bathroom. One may find it inconvenient if one stays for a long period.

    The reception staff was very professional and helpful, especially Janne, he always give a suggestion to the questions before they were voiced aloud.

    The breakfast buffet was a little bit too crouded, and you need to stand a long line to get some toasts ready, but otherwise it was a pleasant stay.
