Original Sokos Hotel Presidentti

4.0 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

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.

Stayed here for 2 nights. Within walking distance to bus terminal and shopping area. Have a nice & tasty Chinese Restaurant (Empire Plaza; 皇朝) around The corner. Breakfast was well spread, but no Asian food. There were renovation works going on within the hotel, but with minimal disturbance.

First of all the interior of the hotel is amazing. Loved the colors and the small details in the lobby. The location is superb at least for a weekend getaway as there are lots of restaurants, shops, movie theaters, museums... well you name it nearby. It's situated near Kamppi shopping center and bus/metro terminal. The staff is friendly and I loved that you could pick out the theme of your newly refurbished room! I don't think that there's anything bad to say. Will definitely return!

Our standard room was clean and OK for an overnight stay. Hotel location is excellent. Hotel staff was polite. Hotel is still under renovation, and you can see some renovation work ongoing in the corridores. The renovation is not affecting the stay though, so don’t be scared. All rooms in use are already renowated (reception told us this), so the room decor is fresh. Sleep quality is good. Breakfast is OK. Hotel parking, located in the downstars garage, is unfortunately quite expensive (36€ night).

Breakfast was verygood, especially thanks to lovely Vispipuuro! Location was verygood, nearby everything(shops, coffees, cinema). Everyone were friendly and helpful. There was also thought about children. Rooms i myself like littlebit modern look, rather.

Hotel has very comfortable rooms, ok table for working. Staff is very friendly and professional. Breakfast is great and has lot of varieties. Location is the best, it’s near the central and it’s still very quiet.

Just in the heart of Helsinki. Accommodation in newly renovated room which was ok. The breakfast is pretty similar in all Sokos hotels. It includes the basic components but no specialities e.g. local products. In general the hotel has a good spirit and we enjoyed to stay here. The advantage of this hotel for car holders is the park hall which is just under the hotel and there is a direct access with a lift.

While traveling through Scandinavia this was our first hotel of many. We loved it!! First impression was of they big open lobby and modern decor. The girls at the reception were so nice and helpful. Honestly don’t remember what theme room we got but it was so cute. The rooms were your typical European rooms, small but comfortable enough. Hands down the BEST beds ever, slept like a baby! Breakfast buffet was amazing along with the location. Can’t complain about a whole lot, would definitely stay there again if I even went back to Finland!

The room (793) was narrow (cramped), unpractical. The clothes rack was over 3 meters away from the door of the room. The size of bed side tables were too small. In the room there should be two good chairs, now there was only one and one little chair. The lights in the room were not good. The lights on the roof (ceiling?) were badly directed (pointed?) and they are too high that customer could direct them better! There was no light over the big room mirror. The light comes from the window behind the customer when he is staying in the front of mirror. I think that person who has designed this room has not ever been himself in a hotelroom! -- The room was not cleaned well! On the floor there was plenty of very little stones all over the room floor!!!
