Original Sokos Hotel Helsinki

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

Left my car inside Kamppi parking place, was forced to be outdoors totally only 40m when coming to the hotel and leaving to fetch the car. No sounds from other rooms, total silentness => very comfortable. Situation excellent regarding the Ateneum Art Museum, von Wright paintings shown at the moment, VERY BEAUTIFUL PAINTINGS!!

Food and the restaurant were great. The breakfast was probably one of the bests I’ve ever had. The location was also very good. The rooms were clean, maybe a little oldfashioned but okey. I wish for a badthub but I didn’t get one. Service was average, not great.

Nice big room. The shower had weak water pressure and the room’s temperature was quite cold. It’s was nice that my kids where given the play books, it kept them entertained for a while. The location is excellent, everything is close by.

I susually stay at Sokos Hotel Pasila on my business travels but this time I had more business in city center. Next time while in Pasila I am going to miss this hotel. Lot better! Best hotel night in Finland :)

Excellent location, good service, very nice room, rich breakfast, all in all good value for money. Would recommend for anyone who like to visit Helsinki. Shopping distric and restaurants just outside the hotel!

We stayed here for one night and was pleasantly surprised by this hotel. It is literally just outside the railway station so we barely had to drag our suitcase at all through the snow. We checked in quickly and easily and were given three single rooms on the 9th floor. For single rooms there was lots of space. Each room had an entrance area then the main room, There was a desk and an easy chair and then the balcony with excellent views over the city. That was the best bit. The room was just the right temperature, the bed was lovely and comfortable and I wish I could have stayed more nights. We had a drink in the bar in the evening, this also had a lovely view out over the city. Breakfast in the morning had lots of choice and was very delicious. There was a place to leave our bags while we explored the city before our flight home. This was a lovely hotel and I would stay here again.

Hotel was pleasant, tidy and peaceful. Its location was very handy: near the railway station and for example art museum Ateneum. The staff was friendly and breakfast very tasty. It was a bit chilly in the room, but blankets were warm. :)

I stayed at the Original Sokos in early February at the end of my 8-days trip to Finland. This was a very comfortable choice of accommodation as it is next door to all main attractions, big stores and the railway and bus stations connecting to the airport. For that this is an easy and not so expensive choice to make for those who want to explore the city centre. Rooms are not of luxury still comfortable enough, although some more space at the bathroom would be very helpful.

Got a room on 7th floor, nice room, but a very small window. Elevators slow and the program need the to be updated. Breakfast unfortunately a little too squeezed, like butter in original supermarket container, and messy and finished... no-one took notice of that. Gym amenities pretty fancy with access to nearby public gym (cost 8 EUR extra/session). Please keep in mind You have to walk through the hotel restaurant in gym garments both going to and coming from the gym... Annoying walking after a hard training sessions through the restaurant where guests had dinner. Parking at the nearby parking house (Kluuvi parking) very convenient.

Thumbs up for the vegan options at breakfast! Excellent location, easy check-in and check-out. Lovely personnel who were always happy to help and answer your questions. Bed was a bit too soft though, might cause back pains.
