    I stood in the hotel only one night, but I had time to notice that service staff is very good and sensitive. I think another time we will stay at this hotel again. Thank you!

    We used the room for 3 adults and all the beds were of the same type, the room was clean and the breakfast was fine.

    Very good

    Good location, nice breakfast, pleasant staff at reception. Nice budget hotel, but don't expect any luxury. Water in the swimming pool was really cold, but I liked that, cause it kept everybody away and I was the only one using it. Breakfast room really crowded, but I had no problem finding a seat.

    Room was a bit dirty. Swimming pool and saunas are open only for a limited time in the morning and evening.

  • 6.2
    Good

    I enjoyed Helsinki and the atmosphere of the city

    In general I found there was poor explanantion of the services available, suprisingly none of the three Sokos hotels I stayed at in Finland provided any written information in room describing the services available and how to access them. (although I did find some information on the hotel television channel when I persevered with the unreliable remote control). Services seemed restricted, for example the hours when the sauna could be used. I didn't find a gym. I was not impressed by the hotel restaurant menu either. Finally reception staff were not particularly helpful. They seemed unable to answer questions like Where can I park my car? and How do I get to the airport? Which reminds me, why no hotel parking???
