My fourth or fifth stay here. And still a good option. A proper, big, four star hotel, centrally located, near the station, with a lovely breakfast. The lobby is loaded with sofas, there are plenty of luggage carts, efficient check-in people. OK coffee in the lobby (but it ain't free, this is Helsinki after all). The architecture betrays the location....

I've stayed in this hotel every now and then. It's a bit too much like a cruise ship in style. The location is central just by the parliament. This time, I had made my reservation in the chain's central system. For some reason, my wish to have an accessible room hadn't reached the hotel. After complaining I got a right...

This hotel is a little dated/tired - could do with some refurbishment however the basic comfort level is good, the service levels efficient if not particularly warm. The big upside is the central location in Helsinki - however having read other accounts of hotels and taking into account the price that I paid for the room, I would look to...

The location of this hotel is really good. You’re in the middle of Helsinki, the train station is in walking distance, lots of shops and restaurants around and if you want to go for a jog you can do so around the lake nearby. The room was very basic and reminded me of a typical youth hostel. That’s not a...

I'm an regular business traveller and I've stayed at Sokos Hotel Presidentti for almost ten times so far. One of the reason for choosing this particular hotel is it's location: it's just a short walk from the train station and it is located in the heart of Helsinki. The staff are helpful, polite and efficient. If you haven't travelled to...

If visiting Helsinki I would suggest staying here. The staff were very friendly and helpful. From the welcome of the door man on arrival to the reception staff providing us with directions and infomation, through to the pleasant bar staff. The room itself was fairly basic but clean and in line with the price we'd paid. As for location, this...
