Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

Beatiful stylish rooms. Super good location in the very heart of the city of Helsinki. Near railwaystation and all the main attractions. Good breakfast and service. I stayed with my 20-year old daughter and we both were very happy. I Highly recommend.

This legendary Helsinki hotel was opened already in 1930. It got recently a make-over and opened two months ago.

We stayed twice before the renovation. Both times were in junior suites, one with a small balcony and one with a sauna.

The 7th-floor suite with a jacuzzi was also a junior suite. Now it is called Helsinki Suite and is the most expensive room at this hotel. The jacuzzi has been changed to a big bathtub.

This Helsinki Suite facing the peaceful courtyard is a very airy suite with huge windows and very high ceilings. In the same big space are a king-size bed, a sofa group and a dining table for four.

Everything else was stylish except the chandelier which was not to our taste. Also, it was not working. It was something strange in the lighting system. Four of the ceiling spots went suddenly off.

Breakfast has always been the weakest part of this hotel. So it was also this time although the hotel is now a Solo Sokos hotel which should have better breakfasts than the Original ones. At 10:20 on Saturday morning and still 40 minutes left the breakfast time, many items were finished and not replenished.

The hotel is very central and we were able to walk everywhere easily. From check-in to check-out our experience was excellent. The room had everything we needed for our 1 night stay. My daughter and I arrived in the early afternoon. Check in was friendly with the receptionist speaking to us in English. Our room had twin beds with a space in between. Lots of pillows were supplied in clean linen with a note to explain the different sizes to enable us to choose the perfect pillows. The beds were comfortable. The room was perfectly clean. Bathroom was lovely with plenty of towels and toilet paper. The TV was easy to navigate and had lots of stations. Kettle, iron and hairdryers supplied. Milk was not supplied and when we asked at reception we were given some fresh milk for our tea and coffee.
The buffet breakfast was substantial with plenty of hot and cold choices. The best breakfast buffet I have ever seen.

This hotel was recommended to me by a local. Checking in was quite painless with a very friendly receptionist. Nice modern and clean room with more than enough space to move around. No working desk though, which seems strange for a hotel that also caters to business people. Decent enough wifi. The air conditioning worked, but can only be turned down to 20°C. Good breakfast with a lot of choices - in the weekends it can get quite crowdy, mainly from 9am on. The room had a very good shower (always bonus points from me then). The only strange thing was housekeeping: the three days I stayed there no one cleaned or even seemed to have visited the room, even though I put up the sign on the door. I would definitely visit this hotel again.

Newly renovated hotel with all the essentials for couple of days into the city. The location would be biggest high flight due to being so close of the train station and shopping centers/museums, etc. The breakfast provided by the hotel was very good and the service of the staff amazing. The bed was very comfortable and took features very modern.

Wonderful stay in hotel Solo Sokos Hotel Helsinki! I Was going to the wedding party and hoped to get the room around 12 o’clock for preparation. The reception could arrange that and I appreciate that very much.
The location of the hotel is great, close to railway stadion and short walk to Kauppatori, shop around. The room was very tidy, bed wonderful and so many pillows to choose for. Breakfast was amazing, very diverse and high-class and the smooth music made the breakfast time peaceful and enjoyable. The staff in the hotel, especially the reception and restaurants was very polite and helpful. Thank you for a very pleasant stay in the hotel.

I can genuinely give the hotel five stars. Great rooms, excellent location, good breakfast and beautifylly restored 20´s decor. Good choice for staycation, business or leisure.

Short distance to all major sights and night life. Here you don ´t need to take uber or taxi since the trams, buses, trains and even the Tallinn and Stockholm ferries are within walking distance.

I have been staying here for years. It used to be peaceful, comfortable, and gently luxurious. Now it is horrid. The pop music blaring through the public areas is even played in the doorway. The decor is brash. There is noisy air-conditioning that cannot be switched off in the bedroom. The windows are locked. Instead of having a simple switch, the lights are operated by some fiendish algorithm. In a double room, there is only one chair at the table.

I am so disappointed that one of my favourite hotels has been ruined.

Lovely hotel in great location with very friendly staff and comfortable rooms.

Well located for central Helsinki and getting around is easy.

A special shout out to all the bar staff who made a solo traveller feel very welcome.

Outside space could do with some improvement to take advantage of the weather.

Great place to stay. The bed was soft, the room was comfortable, and everything was very clean. The reception staff was also very friendly and helpful. My coworker had accidentally booked a different solo sokos hotel in Helsinki and they went above an beyond and helped her cancel that reservation and get booked into the correct hotel.

I'm afraid I don't know anything about renting winter boots. But it seems that there are some companies that rent winter clothes. Please google for example winter clothes rental Finland, or something similar and you'll get better answers :)
Answer from Heidi_Manager
Helsinki, Finland
Dear 132sandy, It is usually pretty cold in February, I'd say about -5 to -25 degrees of Celcius. But you never know, it might not be that cold this winter. Check the latest weather forecasts before you start your journey. I would succest you wear your winter clothes at the airport before coming to the hotel. There is nothing to be afraid about the cold weather. Just remember to wear warm clothes, layers are best way to keep warm. Also remember to wear good hat and mittens and you'll be alright. This way you'll be able to enjoy our wonderful winter. :) Northern lights are not very common in the southern part of Finland. But if you travel up north to Lapland, you have better chance to see them. kind regards, Heidi Ruti Hotel Manager Original Sokos Hotel Helsinki

What is the parking situation like?
Answer from Heidi_Manager
Helsinki, Finland
Dear Springbok200, I'm afraid our hotel doesn't have our own parking garage. Parking on the street is not allowed right next to the hotel, though street side parking can be found close by. Easiest is to take you car to P Kluuvi, a parking garage very close to our hotel. Entrance at Fabianinkatu 27 or Puutarhakatu 1. Go to lever C or D, those are the closest ones to the hotel. The elevator from the garage is right across the street form our main entrance. Parking fee is 36eur/24h at the moment (01/2017).
