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...

This hotel's main selling point is its fantastic location about 2 minutes from central station; and it's reasonable prices. It's a bit dated, but certainly clean and comfortable. Look out with the rooms on the side facing the square - there is a nightclub tha goes until about 2am some nights, and that bass is loud...

It was my first time in the Sokos Hotel Presidentti. It's in the heart of Helsinki, very near to Railways Station, Bus Station and Metro. Also near to some cultural attraction: Music Center, Sibelius Academy, Museum, etc. The building is very big, modern and clean. Personnel is helpful and kind. The room I 've booked was also very nice, excepted...

The Sokos Presidentti hotel was the first hotel that I visited in Helsinki. It's situated near the Kampi center which except of a big shopping center is a transportation hub with many bus lines and a subway station. The hotel is big dark building that is quite depressing. The personnel is helpful and they all speak perfect English. It's a...

We were booked into a standard twin/double room at the beginning of September for a weekend break. We went into our room, a double, with only a single duvet down the middle of the bed. I asked at reception for a double duvet as we were two adults. A lady came and looked at the bed and said she would...

The location is really what made me book the hotel. It's situated right in the city centre within walking distances to most places. The room was large and clean but the bathroom could do with an overhaul. Also I don't particularly like the amenities from Dove, they smell to strong. The service is ok. Check in and check out went...

After reading some of the reviews on tripadvisor, we were a bit hesitant about staying here. However, we were pleasantly surprised. The Presidentti does have a few shortcomings, but nothing too bad. Our room was simply, but nicely, furnished. The bed was comfortable with good quality bedding. The in room WiFi worked well. Water pressure in the shower was good....
