Original Sokos Hotel Vaakuna Helsinki

3.5 out of 5.0

Recent guest reviews

The rooms are just right for sleeping. Great view of the city below. There's only a shower so no relaxing in a warm tub. But, they do have a sauna. You should definitely use it. The one issue I had was the keycard controlled the power in the room. I understand conservation but some days, we would have liked the air conditioning to be already doing its job when returning. Also, the elevator won't go without it either. Again, I understand security is an issue but it became a giant hassle for everyone trying to go up and down. My best rave is for the location. It is in the center of everything and the train station is right across the street. Would stay there again.

Always enjoy staying at Original Sokos Hotel Vaakuna. The location is excellent could not ask for a better place. Good breakfast, nice clean rooms and so on can't find anything to complain about really. My default choice when visiting Helsinki.

It was hard to believe that a Sokos hotel would not have a secure Wifi for me to connect to the internet. All of your customers have to enter passwords to read their work and private home email and enter passwords for other sites they connect to. How can such a big hotel not have a secure system where we need to enter a password to get into it.

The best place to live is Sokos Hotel Vaakuna close to the railway station and big markets. The service is always excellent. The hotelroom is quiet. I only miss some silent restaurant, but not too expensive.

Nice room and friendly staff. Breakfast was ok, too. Liked especially the very early morning coffee with rolls, before the early morning flight. Taxi, bus and railway stations are all near, which is a big plus.

This hotel is an excellent choice when visiting Helsinki for a very short layover because of its central location and even all the shopping opportunities it offers in the same building. The service is fantastic and the rooms are spacy and comfortable although a little bit outdated.

This hotel is very traditional, a bit old aged hotel in very central location in Helsinki. Transportation is all very near and you can get train, bus or what ever transportation easily. There is also very much stores, restaurants, arts and such very near.

Nice hotel with excellent location, nice balconys on top floors. City noises can be heard depending on which the side of the builiding your room is located. Overall very nice, brekafast is good and the views are a bonus.

Besides housekeeping, overall hotel services were good. On second night, we found the used towels lying over the bathtub. However, we did not complain because of two spared towels remained in the wardrobe. On fourth night, we arrived our room with amazing sight. The toilet was only resupplied with some amenities, neither new towels nor shower gels presented, only a bunch of used towels were leaving in the bathtub. One bottle of drinking water was resupplied instead of two as usual. The sound-proof wall was not in good quality, as we were awaken after midnight because of heavy slam shut door of the nearby room. The most impressive thing was the delicious and sumptuous breakfast.

Such a good hotel with a long traditional history in the middle of Helsinki. Good, but some corridors and stair are very difficult for disabled who use a wheel chair. I hope that the hotel will improve guides better. Brakfast in the 10th floor is good.
