Excellent location and good service, beds a bit soft, but ok for sleeping. The first night we had dinner in the hotel's bistro and the food was good. The room (standard) was not too big, but then again we did not spend a lot of time there.

Great location in the center, near all the shops, galleries, bars and railway station. Good continental breakfast with everything you need. The standard room would need some renovation, but it was big enough for 3 persons and a great room with that price.

First of all, the location is excellent and it may be that because of the location I will revisit this hotel in some day. I also liked the hotel corridors and room doors which reminded me for some reason hotel from the 40's/50s'....

Located in the heart of Helsinki, the hotel close to everything the city has to offer. The room is average, but if you got a deal like we did, it is worth every penny. The breakfast was fantastic, great variety of local staples of fish, breads and cheeses. We recommend it wholeheartedly.

I stayed one night at Sokos Hotel Helsinki. I was on a business trip in Helsinki. For this reason the location was perfect. I got to choose if I want the room from the courtyard or street side. The breakfast room was little small but cozy.
