Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

This hotel is in a good district of Helsinki, within walking distance to many attractions and with good public transit links. The rooms are spacious and come with a safe, kettle with tea and coffee, and an iron. The toiletries are of a very good brand and generously supplied. The breakfast is great -- have the traditional karelian pie with some egg butter, or some scrambled eggs with meatballs, traditional porridge, or some of a wide array of fresh fruit, veggies, and yogurts. The bar area is cozy and serves until late. The staff are very helpful and friendly. The windows seem like they cannot be opened, but you can open them if you ask for a key from reception. A great base to explore Helsinki.

We truly enjoyed our stay at Original Sokos Hotel Albert! It has a unique, home-like atmosphere with a large sitting room and bar by the reception desk. The room was spacious and well-equipped, and we appreciated the hotel's focus on being eco-friendly. The breakfast included a wide range of options, including a delicious Finnish porridge. The hotel is located within easy walking distance of parks, restaurants, grocery stories, public transport, and Market Square. The hotel also has a sauna available downstairs for customers to use.

All of these things made the Original Sokos Hotel Albert a great place to stay, but our visit was made especially memorable by the friendliness and helpfulness of the staff. In particular, Sonja provided information on activities we might enjoy, nearby restaurants, special Finnish treats, and other fascinating aspects of life in Helsinki. Sonja really enhanced our short stay in Finland, and we truly appreciated her attentive and professional service.

Albert is situated by a silent street, just a few blocks from the city centre. Service at the reception desk was excellent.
The room was very small, and majority of the area was taken by the 180 cm bed. However, it was a bit difficult to find space for the luggege.
Breakfast was very good.

We spent two nights here on our trip to Finland and it was very nice. The rooms are well appointed and the beds are comfortable. The hotel is close to the city centre so everything is in easy walking distance but it's far enough to be calm and on a quiet street. The only downside to staying here is that the bathrooms are a bit in need of an update and the showers are quite small. The breakfast was excellent, we had two vegans and one vegetarian in our group and there was a vegan version of everything available, they even cooked us vegan meatballs and vegan blueberry muffins! The staff were friendly and helpful and the place had a nice atmosphere.

A very good mid level hotel in the center of the city. It’s a bit of a walk into the main shopping area but there is plenty of restaurants close by. There is a bar and a nice sitting area.

The rooms are spacious and the bathroom is well appointed and clean. The bed was comfortable but the pillows weren’t great. Unfortunately the curtains didn’t cover the windows very well so there is light spill into the room from the street lights.

The staff, in particular Marianna, were brilliant. Friendly, helpful and accommodating. Marianna was able to suggest and book restaurants for us.

The breakfast is great with a good variety of fruit, cereals, pastries and hot food. Coffee not so good unfortunately.

Breakfast good, position good but for sleeping I would not recommend for someone who is disturbed by light and noise. Some noise from the street and also from the corridor. But worst were the blackout curtains. Dirty and too small, there was light coming from the sides, between and bottom so could not sleep after sunrise.

Response from HanneO0, Service Manager at Original Sokos Hotel Albert
Responded 31 Jan 2020
Hello! Thank you for your feedback. I am sorry to hear that everything did not go as expected during your stay in Albert. January is very quiet month in the restaurant and therefor we have decided to keep the doors closed. Anyhow our reception is more than glad to help you choosing the restaurant, when our own restaurant is not available. Gladly I can tell that we open the restaurant tonight again. I am sorry that the toilet was not cleaned properly. In case there are problems in the room, we are more than happy to fix them as soon as we are informed. We also want to go through the feedback with our housekeeping to avoid these in the future. I am glad to hear you enjoyed our breakfast. Have a great weekend! Best regards, Hanne Reception / Service Manager Original Sokos Hotel Albert

Visited Sokos Hotel Albert and the expectations were not that high but after the visit this is the hotel to stay and next time when I am going to stay in Helsinki I am definetely going to stay at Albert and will recommend this to my colleagues as well.

Hotel is located within walking distance from heart of the city, close to the park, sea, shops and restaurants. Firstly when I had a look at the map and distances it sort of put me off but I was surprised that it only took 10-15 minutes to walk from main railway station. Weather was great so I really enjoyed my walk to the hotel and about.

Staff were really friendly, helpfull and professional. Did not dine at the restaurant but had a look at the menus and it looked great and reasonable priced. Breakfast was excellent. Next time when I am going to stay there I will definetely try the menu.

Stayed in a standard room, and it was a very modern but homely decorated room with fresh colours, comfortable bed, free WLAN and air-con. The best thing was the wonderful power shower which really gave the relaxing feeling after the long day at work. Also Albert has a sauna which I did not have time try. I believe the sauna is free for the guest.

So next time when I am going to visit Helsinki Albert is the one! Only negative thing which I found was that there was not any snow in Helsinki!

It was our first time in this hotel. When we arrived the service at the reception was really friendly. The situation is really good, not in the heart of the city but you could walk there in less that ten minutes. We stayed on the sixth floor. The room was okay. It was very quiet, we had the room towards inner court but even at the restaurant you could not hear cars driving past the hotel. The Breakfast was okay, but not the same quality every morning. The shower was practical. Nearby the hotel you could find everything, nice restaurants, bars and small shops.
