Central location

The hotel is easy to find and the great perk is the location. It is right across the street from the bus and train stations and there are tons of stores and food places inside the station. The hotel staff was so pleasant and offered to let us have early check-in which was very nice of them. Every staff we spoke w/were professional, courteous and friendly. The breakfast offered during our stay was also one of the better complimentary breakfasts we have had in a hotel abroad. The room was spacious and the bed comfortable. The bathroom could use a little updating but otherwise we had no complaints!

Great 1970 politbyro experience

The hotel staff is fabulous, helpful and extremely courteous. However, the whole experience was totally flattened by my arrival to the eight floor room that had a feel of lacking maintenance: door frames and bathtub walls were broken. Overall, the place just had a feeling of neglect. That all overlooked, if you are looking forward to stumbling to the railway station, Kamppi shopping center, or one of the few microbrew serving places (Teerenpeli) in Helsinki, location might make up for otherwise disappointing experience.

Teerenpeli is virtually downstairs. Menu is not impressive but the craft beers are almost worth their exuberant price.

Central location

The hotel has a fairly central location - just a few hundred meters from the train station, and near to the Kamppi shopping centre. The breakfast is really nice. The room wasn't particularly pretty, but served the purpose for one night.

great location and friendly staff

This was not the first time I chose to stay at Sokos Presidentti Hotel and it never disapponted me. No problem with early check-in or late check-out without any extra charge even during the festive season which is extremely convenient. The staff is friendly and helpful. The breakfast is really good. The hotel's main advantage is a perfect location. It's close to all the main shopping centers of Helsinki and to the central railway station. The hotel, however, is a little bit overpriced - it could cost 20-30 euros less per night as the rooms are pretty simple (although comfy and tidy), but that's probably because of its location. I'd definetely stay there once again.
