Good hotel with best location in helsinki. It was near the main street of helsinki and stockman is ten minutes walk from hotel. Room and breakfast was very nice, and ther was a free sauna for all guests.

huge hotel and a little unpersonal. Breakfast with a good choice, but far too many guests for our taste. The room had what was expected. The internet PC:s in the lobby were occupied all the time.

I was on a three-week business trip in June and decided to stay at three different hotels. The Presidentti is close to the train station. But the Scandic Marski, similarly priced at around 150 Euros per night, is a much better choice because the room is much more comfortable and is more centrally located. Breakfast at the Presidentti was delicious and had more of a selection than the Marski, but the room looks like it's been like that for decades and could really an overhaul. Good thing my company was picking up the tab. If I had to pay 150 euros a night out of my own pocket for the Presidentti, I would be pretty bitter.

I stayed at this hotel for two nights as part of a group of MBA students as we toured various parts of Scandinavia.

The hotel is located within walking distance of the market and Promenade. The room was small but satisfactory. It’s not luxurious at all, but I’m not certain there are any nicer hotels in Helsinki. The staff were friendly, but check-in was very slow. Waits at the reception desk could be quite long at times.

Stayed in the hotel for business for three nights, only because of its location. It couldn't be much more central in Helsinki, just a very short walk to shops, offices, tram/bus stops, pretty much everywhere! The views are not that breathtaking from any of the rooms (from what I've experienced & heard), so if you'd like to see at least something, you better ask for a room with street view. Neither the hotel itself or the adjacent office buildings aren't much to look at, but the inner yard is pretty bad for any taste. I was lucky enough to stay in a Comfort Class room (they're on top floors), which was spacious and comfortable. Couldn't hear a beep from other rooms, traffic noise was down to minimum and air conditioning was just what I needed on warm summer days! Shame the curtains in the room weren't darkening curtains, as the room became quite light very early in the morning - not a very comfortable thing for a light sleeper.. Breakfast was a real disappointment! Sokos Hotels' brekkies are never that special anyway, but Presidentti's was poorer than usual. The presentation was almost opulent, but it fooled the eye to think there was more selection than there actually was. Scrambled eggs were yucky, carelian pastries (rice pastries) hard and dry, only two kinds of cereals available, tinned fruits that tasted like the can they came out of and mushy tomatoes. If you're a wheat eater though, the bread selection seemed to be quite nice.

The hotel is located in the city centre and it is walking distance from many tourists attractions. The room are nice and clean, despite being quite old fashioned. Good breakfast buffet.
