Break Sokos Hotel Flamingo4.0 out of 5.0
Recent guest reviews
The location is great quite close to the airport, but no shuttle. There are lots of restaurants and a shopping center under the same roof. Breakfast was pretty good. Large room for a newish hotel. Only negative thing was that the extra bed was rather short.
Business lunch is really good. I recommend it. There is few choices and all are tasty. There is also food for meat lovers and veggie. Place is little far from Helsinki city but only 3km from Helsinki-Vantaa airport.
It was not my choice but I generally liked this hotel. When you 20 km away from Helsinki and spend nearly all your day at conferences you really appreciate that you hotel is connected to a big trade mall. All this different restaurants, shops and some entertaining and relaxing activities can really help me to spend my days in Vantaa before I finally got an opportunity to go to Helsinki. As for the "issues" I personally faced, they are no heating in the room and no towels. The first one I could not solve with the control box on the room wall and did not actually feel like calling to the reception to complain about it and the second issue was excused and towels were immediately provided after I asked for them. No claims about food and I also did not notice anything wrong about petsonnel.
An excellent hotel to visit, good location with the integration to shopping mall and movie theaters excetera. If you're willing to spen few € there's a good gym in the same building. Staff is always nice at the reception. Few restaurants just steps away from the hotel, so this has everything you need and don't have to go outside.
Not what I expected, it is really odd that hotel does not have sauna at all. There is a huge spa in the same building but hotel guests do not get any discount when joining in. Breakfast bacon was good but "pan cakes" were made by factory and that is why not as good as done by yourself. You could hear noice from corridor too easily during the night time. Garage was so full that we could not fit in, luckily we were able to park to malls parking place.
This hotel is ideal for one night when you want to go shopping and see a movie and also for a visit to the water park and spa. Parking for free is appriciated! Also many good restaurants are available in the same building.
Was many times here and still satisfied. Right now is a big construction by side and noise is program. The breakfast could be better and the employees in the breakfast room more polite. The receptionists are very nice people and helpful. The rooms are clean and spacious. You have different possibilities to eat in that complex and suggest to try Amarillo’s burger ;) The spa is big and you can compare it with water parks even is not for free.
Taxi ride from the airport costs around 15 euro. The rooms are excellent, and very clean. The internet seems really fast. When I was there, there was a building site in front, but it didn't bother too much. The breakfast here is one of the healthiest I have seen with Finnish rye breads etc. and with very few cakes. Coffee was OK. Service was good throughout. For a business hotel the rooms were actually quite nice, although I found adjusting air conditioning to a good temperature difficult. The views from the windows are mainly toward the motorway. It is a good location for a business conference, and there are quite a few restaurants, a cinema and a large shopping centre within the building complex, so you don't really need to go out. Not ideal if you want to visit Helsinki itself though, as taxis are expensive, and the nearest bus stop is around 700m away, although the bus ride to Helsinki is cheap. There is no sauna, which is a minus for a Finnish hotel. although you can visit a spa next door.
The best I have to say about this hotel is the proximity to the airport. I visited on business purpose, as our office was in the same building, but I would never choose this hotel for a pleasure visit in Helsinki. The rooms are OK, the breakfast as well, but it is quite pricey. The best part is being part of a huge shopping center, with some really great restaurants nearby. I especially recommend the greek one close to the hotel reception.
It was a good experience to living in Flamingo. It was clean and tidy room with very good room service especially the receptionist in the front desk and the waitress in the canteen. The foods are good and healthy.
