Original Sokos Hotel Helsinki
Ranked #28 of 66 Hotels in Helsinki
Reviewed 3 February 2014

The location is one of the best in the area. You are not far from transportation where you need to get to the market square or anywhere else in Helsinki.

The room itself is clean, I love the shower and the modern feel of the living space. The reason I did not give this hotel five stars would be because of the noise factor. The individuals above us were quite loud until quite late and that makes it difficult if you are trying to catch up on sleep from traveling.

The hallway as well can be noisy at points, so you must get accustomed to that or be able to sleep quite heavy. All in all though, it was a wonderful place to stay.

The location is superb, this is probably the best location where a hotel can be in Helsinki! They do have rooms with bathtubs and it's a huge plus for me! The breakfast area (Fransmanni) is too tiny, but they do have a few tables outside as well (enjoyable during the summer but beware of the seagulls!).

Room Tip: this hotel still has rooms with bathtubs, just ask!

Does what it says on the tin, basic no thrills city hotel. Lower class than a uk Travel Lodge and Premier Inn. Wouldn't stay again as I'm sure for €150 there is better. Had to move luggage as the hotel was closing for Xmas at noon, which should have been advised.

Room Tip: High room on South side away from bars.

Just in the centre of Helsinki, five minutes away the Railway Central Station. The room was larger than I expected and very comfortable (free wifi). Friendly and helpful staff. It was a nice surprise because the price was cheaper than other hotels I have been looking. Breakfast was the only point to improve, as the room was too crowded every morning.

We stayed for a week in August and had a lovely time. We especially liked the inhouse sauna, which is of course standard in Finland. The hotel was very clean and staff were friendly and helpful. The food at breakfast was lovely with a large selection.Overall a great experience. Would go again. Good value for money.
