Original Sokos Hotel Vantaa
Ranked #9 of 10 Hotels in Vantaa
Reviewed 17 March 2012

Stayed here as it was close to where I was working and recommended. Arrived late Saturday night (close to midnight) and was astonished at the number of people around the foyer and the volume of the music. Not what I really wanted in order to sleep and be refreshed to start work on Sunday morning! However, I’d booked a room on a quiet floor and, despite this being on the second floor and close to where the high volume music was playing, the silence hit me as soon as I closed the corridor’s security door. The room was clean and comfortable with tea/coffee making facility and the bonus of a heated bathroom floor.
Reception staff were friendly and efficient and, when I queried the fact that I’d booked at a rate that was higher than that currently on offer, was immediately given a lower quote (which was honoured at check out).
The included buffet breakfast is extensive and good quality and there are plenty of restaurants within easy walking distance for evening meals although the hotel’s own restaurant is quite reasonable.
I asked about booking a taxi for the airport as I had the first flight out on Saturday morning and was told not to bother as the bus left in plenty of time, would only cost a couple of Euro, and wouldn’t take much longer to make the journey – great advice which saved me around €35.

Room Tip: Book a quiet floor.

It was very busy and a lot of noise in the hotel due the f act there was a party on Saturday evening. We mentioned that by the reception office the next morning.

The staff at the reception desk was very friendly and polite and without any hesitation we received an upgrade to a superior room in a another part of the hotel.

What a perfect service!!! We surely come back to this hotel on our next trip to Helsinki.

Would have liked to go to sleep at eleven. Got sleep at about 2 am. I've stayed at hotels that have a nightclub before, but this one is apparently made of cardboard. Should have read some reviews before the trip. Wiser next time.

If you want to sleep, stay away! I spent a night from Saturday to Sunday in this party hell and cannot suggest staying here for anyone, who isn't partying himself/herself. Music from the disco, people queueing for a taxi, hotel guests' personal affairs through my room door... Ask the receptionist for ear plugs! Plus: hotel gym is roomy, location near the Tikkurila station good.

Party hotel for people of Vantaa. You can really notice at the hotel disco that you are in vantaa!

Rooms are nice and hotel is clean. Service was little bit rude and breakfest was not good. Growse frozen sausages and donuts what u can buy from local supermarket in giant boxes... Yuck...!!

We were forced to spend a night at this hotel due to my daughters swimming competition being held at Tikkurila, Vantaa. Picked this hotel due to its location. Thats just about the good that there is.
Lots of drunken Finns (some kind of darts tournament at the hotel). I did not want my 14 year old to walk alone from the downstairs restaurant up to the room because of the other guests. Elevators were dirty, splashes of beer on the floor so that your shoes kind of stack on the ground. Room was noisy, lots of running and shouting in the corridors.

Service at the front desk far from friendly. We paid for the garage, only to find that there was not space when we tried to enter it.
Breakfast was okay.

Maybe it is better during the week. But on weekends, too much going on at the hotel for a good night sleep.

The service was fine and the cleaning ladies are obviously doing what they can -- these were the good news. Well, yes, the location is also convenient if you are going to the airport. But the price/quality ratio is quite outrageous... the hotel needs a serious renovation!! The rooms and the restaurant must be from the 70s! The next time I am looking for an airport hotel, I will pay an extra 20€ for a room in a bit more modern hotel...

Room Tip: Avoid if possible
