This is the hotel worlds equivalent of a Toyota sedan - nothing to aspire to, but it works. Location close to the airport is the key selling point. Nothing wrong with the rest, but distinctly average except the beds which are better and the breakfast which is worse.

This hotel offers probably an acceptable/good option if you have to stay at a hotel near Helsinki airport for a night or two, even though no shuttle service to the airport is provided. But if you are looking for a short relaxing brake with your family or partner there are certainly a lot of better options in the vicinity. If you appreciate tranquility and smooth service avoid at least staying at this hotel during weekends.

We stayed for one night in a superior room at this hotel. The view from the 12th floor is good but there are nothing really to see; the parking lot of the shopping mall, industrial areas and a few water towers in the horizon. The rooms are clean with standard features but nothing extra. Free Wi-Fi is available in the rooms but remember to get the username and password from the reception. The receptionist will not remind you and you will have to return to the reception to get one if you forget to ask.

The capacity of the elevators is not sufficient. We spent 5 minutes on Sunday morning waiting for the elevator and after that another 5 minutes going back and forth between the 12th and the 4th floor in a crowded elevator stopping at each floor in between before eventually landing on the ground floor were the breakfast is served. After breakfast and before checking out we had the pleasure of experiencing this apparently standard procedure again. The breakfast was a standard Finnish hotel breakfast served in a crowded dining room with one special gem appreciated by children, - a chocolate fountain.

The main attraction of this hotel is the water park/spa located in the basement of the hotel. This attraction is open also for other customers than hotel guest. On a Saturday evening the place is thus crowded with people queuing for the different steam rooms, saunas, showers, pools and refreshments. The communal dressing room is a mess while the cleaners don’t manage to keep it clean and tidy. This is thus really not a place for relaxation even though the water park is divided into a noisy pool area and a ‘peaceful’ spa area. During our stay this division of areas was hardly visible.

Sokos Flamingo is located in the Airport area, but doesn't offer regular shuttleservice to the airport, so be advised that you need to take a taxi to the hotel, the regular shuttlebuses will not stop at Sokos Flamingo.
Never the less, the hotell offer nice and big rooms, and right at the entrance, you can chose between 5 or 6 different restaurants, for dinner, and if you arrived during openinghours, the hotel is located just next to a big shoppingcenter.

I arrived really early after an intercontinental flight and was pleasantly surprised at front desk when a room was already available at 7.30 am. I was even offered a possibility to have breakfast already when checking in (besides with the normal next day), with a fee of 14 eur which I declined. Receptionist spent some time explaining what the attached shopping mall had to offer: there is a spa, a bowling areena among others. Receptionist was very helpful, cheerful and service oriented (not very typical for Finns).

Our twin room at 9th floor was really spacious and very clean. Bed a bit too soft to my taste, I would have liked a firm mattress. Free wifi and parking. Breakfast typical for this Sokos hotel chain with an unexpected extra: chocolate fountain! Never seen that in a Finnish hotel, at breakfast. Besides chocolate fountain, the breakfast consists of variety of bread, cheese, sausages, eggs, bacon, porridge, cereals, jogurt, apple and orange juice, coffee&tea. So I think everybody's taste is being served.
Hotel is adjoining Jumbo Mall, so lots of shopping opportunities. Restaurant Amarillo and Sir Eino give you entertainment until late night. Location wise this is not exactly an airport hotel, because there are similar hotels even closer to the airport and they do not offer shuttle to Flamingo but taxi is not very costly either (about 14 euros/10 minutes drive). I think there is public transportation if you want to check out Helsinki.
Extra towel set costs 4 euros (I think you might need them if you visited the spa).
We did not face problems with the elevators. Our bathroom bide shower was leaking water on the floor, and this we mentioned while checking out. The receptionist was (again) very service oriented, apologized and cared about our socks getting wet. She promised that it would be fixed before next guests arrived.

This hotel is just what one can expect from a Finnish 4 star hotel. I can recommend i t to my friends with no doubts.

This is hotel for you if you like
+shopping, restaurants, movies, spa all in same building
+ new rooms with awesome views
+ great customer service, better than in most places in Finland


- you pay a lot for that
- in normal rooms there is no hair conditioner, or robes, or slippers, or extra towels, all cost extra
- super expensive minibar, water 4,50€, small wine 8,50€
- you can drink tap water, but 5 star hotels have free bottles of water anyway in Finland, not here
- so sad breakfast, everything comes from microwawe or machine, no cook, no taste at all

Overall: Ok, but nor worth of extra price
