It was an absolute pleasure to stay in the Original Sokos hotel, in the center of town, right next to the University of Helsinki, walking distances from dozens and dozens of pubs, malls, and excellent sights!

Room was very comfortable. Staff was very good and friendly Location is excellent and near everything. The only thing we did not appreciate was that breakfast on weekdays ends at 09.30. Too early if you are on holiday.

Frankfurt, Germany
Reviewed 11 July 2016

The hotel is good but, in comparison to others, is expensive for what you get. I found the air conditioning rather loud, along with 'building noises' - I guess from heating/cooling expansion/contraction. Wooden floors rather than carpet also created a colder feel to the room. The location is very good, though, close to Metro, restaurants and shops and hotel staff...

Friendly and helpfull staff, clean rooms, well stocked as far as towels, soap and minibar goes. Excellent breakfast, perfectly situated. Only "complaint" is that the floor on my room was very worn down, which was in contrast to the rest of the room.

Superior family room with sofa bed would fit a family with children. The restaurant cooked finger food for baby. Service was always friendly. Children want to come back here. Elevators were small but did fit a pram.

Hotel has perfect location for city holiday. Breakfast is ok, but be sure take it before 8.30 since the last our is usually very crowded. Service is always good and the rooms are ok, about basic standard.

This hotel is in an excellent location in central Helsinki within walking distance of the main rail station and many top sights. I had a small single room on the eight floor and while it met my needs, it had almost zero storage space, liked the funky room design though. I did suffer a certain amount of noise from the...
