This was my second stay at Sokos Hotel Albert and all I can say is that everything about this place is average. The room itself was quite small but clean and fairly modern. The soundproofing is not extremely good as you can easily hear noises from the other rooms. The only thing that really doesn't work, is the air condition....

Hotel service was really good. Rooms were a bit cold, so I had to manage a room change. Anyhow, insulation of room windows (at least in the rooms I have been) is not so good, should be better. Once again, great support from the hotel service people.

They have really nice lobby bar and good quality pizza and a la carte menu at the restaurant. Ask for Kirsi at the reception, she is very funny and professional. She recommended many places for us and was very kind. In overall very cozy place. Rooms are bit small but why hang around there when you can have a nice...

Totally decent basic chain-hotel for which you can usually get a good price quote. Nothing exceptional, but everything works. Rooms are a bit worn, but totally fine. Good bed and sleep quality. Minibars are empty, so remember to get your beers from the R-kiosk across the street. Breakfast adequate. Pro tip - they have a tiny carage for parking. It...

Well positioned hotel close to city centre, restaurants and cafes. Nice chilled out vibe in the lounge-bar-restaurant area makes it a great place to be after a busy day. Definitely not a luxury hotel but great value and perfect for short stays and city breaks. Highly recommended

Location to Länsisatama harbour quite convenient, I got there by tram. Got a restful sleep before weekend trip to Tallinna, I felt exhausted after a long bus journey to Helsinki. Not a luxury hotel, but the atmosphere is nice. The room was a little bit chilly, altough it was not a very cold weather outside.

The venue is not so far from the town Centre, one can actually walk. It's closer to trump stations and absolutely peaceful. I like the view from my bedroom. Very vintage European buildings. Food was great and customer service absolutely excellent.

It's a very good hotel to stay when travelling to Helsinki with great location and nice suroundings. It's, however, a bit difficult with finding the parking lot (due to the "oneway streets" in the centre of Helsinki.
