Recent guest reviews

Good location. Noiseless new room, good bed. Good restaurant in the same building. Car parking ok, only High- prised car parking. Room price was high, over 200;- €. Breakfast was very good and healty.

Hotell was good and renovated nice. Location was super good. Only negative feedback is coming slow check in. There was 4-5 counter desk but only 2 was in use, even there was lot of waiting people at the same time.

We were going to a concert with my parents and decided to stay here, because the club was less than 2 minutes walk away! Public traffic and all the shops are very close to the hotel! The receptionist was so kind to us and treated us like a family member! We were very pleased and really, truly enjoyed our stay at the President Hotel.

We had a great visit to the Hotel President when we went on a trip to the Spring Fair in the Fair Center. The location is absolutely excellent and the service good. Breakfast was also tasted. I recommend!

Nice stay on my Business trip. Only minus was very expensive Parking tickets. Room was nice and peacefull, breakfast was excellent and smooth. Restaurant was closed little bit too early, but othervise it was Ok.

Comfortable and quiet rooms, a very good bed even for me with my back problems, good and affordable dinner in the restaurant (Bistro Manu). Very central location. This is the preferred hotel for our Corporation.

Sokos Hotels is the second biggest hotel chain in Finland. Hotel Presidentti has a great location, it's big, clean and has all the services tourist or business traveller needs. Breakfast is a buffet with lots to choose from - basic stuff same as all the big hotels in Finland. Good but nothing special. I had a standard room, it was tidy and even the windows were towards the street it was quiet. If you want to shop - there are two big shopping centers nearby within the walking distance. Room price is ok considering the location and services incl. free wi-fi.

We had a good night in the hotel which is very close to the train station. Breakfast was really good with a lot of choices. The room was very comfortable and clean. We were highly satisfy with the hotel.

Hotel is very well located - easy to reach with public transportation. Near you can find lot of restaurant and shopping centers on walking distance. Hughe hotel with nicely renovated rooms, each floor does have own theme.

Overall, an enjoyable stay at a central location in Helsinki. However, the breakfast could be improved. For example, I could not find a place to order a freshly-cooked egg omelet. Also, the shampoo container in the shower was empty. Apparently, the house keeping forgot to refill the container.
