I would not opt for this hotel in Helsinki. The price is not significantly cheaper even though the rooms and public spaces above the lobby level are dated and tired. This is also a popular meeting venue but also there premises are tired.

I had high expectation about this hotel because of the pictures I had seen of the newly furbished rooms. Unfortunately we got an old and small room, which was next to the lobby area in 8th floor. We could hear people walking back and forth through the door. No real view, because window was facing towards the inner yard. Room... More

The hotel is in a very central location in downtown Helsinki. I managed to get one of their new rooms which was a good standard business hotel. Parts of the hotel looked like it is being renovated at the moment. Breakfast was completely ok. I would recommend the hotel as a no frills but convenient centrally located option.

Stayed there twice regarding work. Brown doors gave a door feeling in the lobby and a bit too old. Not very upto date rooms. Staines and dirty feel. Great location for evening activities as it is centrally located and near to a shopping mall.

We stayed here one night this time. The location of this hotel is great, there are Kiasma, the main railway station, Kamppi shopping center, Ateneum etc, so this is located truly in the city center. The breakfast is really good, lots of options and also a nice gluten-free selection of food. It's not the cheapest hotel in Helsinki, so if... More

Old hotel, worst place I have stayed at in Helsinki and I have been in Helsinki more than 200 times during the years. Really bad. This hotel remind me of old Soviet Union. Nothing was ok The windows was not possible to open. The air in the room was very bad. The bathroom was not nice at all.

Hello Eliza1930, Thank you for the review. I apologize that your stay here didn’t go the way it should have. For safety reasons, there is no window opener in the room.

We stayed for a few nights recently (mid August 2016) at the Sokos Presidentti. We found it to be centrally located, near the central train station (5-10 minute walk), restaurants, shopping, and "The Silent Chapel". The hotel is large, and currently undergoing a needed renovation. The interiors were a bit outdated, but still in good shape overall. The front desk... More
