Good, decent, comfortable hotel with clean hotel rooms, nice bathroom. No wow effect, but if you are looking for a normal hotel close to public transportation, this hotel is a perfect match. Proximity of public transportation though also brings along a bit of noise which was waking me up early in the morning.

This was the last stop in what had been a fantastic holiday. Helsinki is a lovely city and i had been here before many years ago. The Sokos hotel is right in the city centre and very convenient.

My wife and I were really disappointed...Because we have been in Helsinki several and several times, but never before booked this great hotel! No we know where we stay next time. The room was really awesome and comfortable. Actually the whole hotel was comfortable. Great views from the 10th floor and great breakfast.

Small, ordinary hotel rooms with a fine, but not fantastic, view of the city. The rates are pretty high and it should be possible to find better alternatives...

BUT we dined at Loiste on Saturday evening at 17:00, and we were "neglected" by the staff. We had made reservations for the table of four early ahead, and were - sort of - shown to the table, too....
