This hotel is ten minutes walk from the railway station from where a Finnair coach service operates to the airport and it is just off the main shopping street.
It is a very large hotel with a large number of conference delegates there when I visited. Although a little dated it is very comfortable with a pleasant bar and a Spanish restaurant.
The rooms are adequately furnished though coffee making facilities are absent from the room.(There is a 24 hr service of coffee and cakes in the lobby which operates reasonable prices.)
You do have to be fairly nimble to reach the over bath shower as the sliding door rail adds a few extra inches to the height of the bath!
Although the hotel is labyrinthine , plenty signage is provided above every point where a decision has to be made!
The is a more than adequate buffet breakfast with the usual foods on offer plus Finnish fish specialities and despite a very busy dining room, the staff do a superb job in rapidly clearing tables. So much so that if you return to the buffet, you may find your coffee cup has been cleared away.
Check in is laboriously slow. This may be due to the Finnish relaxed attitude but also due to the fact that you need to fill in a registration document then you are given breakfast vouchers, a discount coupon for the bar and an offer coupon for the Spanish restaurant.
I would happily recommend this hotel.
The only hotel nearer to the airport bus is its sister hotel,, Sokos Hotel Vaakuna.
