The location is the best among all hotels in Vaasa. The main shopping centre is in the same building. The main square and all the restaurants are also right around the hotel. I was given one of the refurbished rooms, which was clean, modern and overall one of the best rooms i have stayed in any hotel in Vaasa. The only negative thing in the room were the very cold floors. Pillows were kinda hard and felt like they were at the end of their life cycle too. The staff at the reception were extremely friendly! One of the friendliest receptions I have ever received in Finland. They gave me my room at 1.30 pm even though the check in time is at 3. Pm. I want to thank them for doing that without me even asking for it. The breakfast was alright, nothing special, but overall better than the breakfast at Scandic Vaasa for example. In case you are into fitnes, they have a gym and offer a free access to one of the best gyms in town which is 200m away from the hotel!

Staff is very friendly, lobby looks comfy and our theme room was nice, spacious and clean. Air in the room was fresh and air conditioning worked perfectly. Wooden floor instead of dusty and disgusting carpet is great. Location very good but not very quiet. On third floor noices of traffic and market square may disturb. Breakfast was not 4 star hotel level. I've never had more dry and old croissant anywhere, scrambled eggs had weird bitter taste. Noticed that I wasn't only one who couldn't eat it. Carelian pies were nice, if they would have been coctail size they would have been even better.

A very nice hotel to stay at in Vaasa. The rooms are of high quality, I stayed in a Superior Twin which had a sauna - lovely room. The service in the hotel was very good, booking was done directly over the phone. Staff were excellent. Breakfast buffet was okay, nothing great but a good selection of food.

I stayed at Sokos hotel Vaakuna for one night during a business meeting in early August. The hotel is centrally located, with an apparently fresh facelift, very attentive and pleasant staff, and also easy access through an underground parking facility (great during winter as well). I stayed in room 507 with a scenery overlooking the central market square. Extra points for the surprisingly decent gym with basic exercise machines. Otherwise, like most S-hotels, the rooms are very standard and somewhat boring. An issue that is difficult to avoid in normal business hotels. Extra points for easy access and free wifi. The main question: Would I stay here the next time I come to Vaasa? Absolutely.

I recommend this hotel. The staff was very helpful and the room was clean. My standard room wan not the biggest possible but spacious enough. The breakfast was very good with plenty of healthy options and it can be recommended also for vegetarians.

This hotel is centrally located and is adjoined to an inside car park and indoor access to the shopping center. We had two dogs with us and the hotel reception staff were more than welcoming us and making sure that we had everything we needed. The room was suitably spacious for a standard twin, the sauna facilities fantastic and the breakfast plentiful and varied. Our only disappointment and surprise was the decor theme of the restaurant/breakfast room, that was equipped with school furniture??

Very nice reception staff that gave you a friendly welcome. Comfortable beds and good size of the room . The location in the city center is really good. The service in the restaurant in the evening, and some maintenance issues in the bathroom, are the only thing that pulls down the overall experience.

I stayed at Original Sokos Hotel Vaakuna for a work trip. This hotel exceeded my expectations. The room was very clean and had everything you could need, including a large water-cooker and assortment of tea. The breakfast was excellent, the hotel gym was better than average, and the sauna was a nice oasis at the end of a conference day. I even got an ergonomic pillow delivered to my room for an extra 5 euros per day. The hotel also has small, private fridges for use during your stay. Although the rooms are not big, and the hotel is a chain, these small touches really made my stay special. I felt like I got more than I paid for!

The hotel is well located in the city center within Rewell shopping center (odd street address for Finland derives from this). Hotel main entrance opens to a walkway within the shopping center. If you arrive late, there's a buzzer on the shopping center entrance to the reception (always manned). Restaurants are on the second floor - you can enter from the shopping center also, so these appear not to be dedicated for the hotel. Quite nice food and good breakfast. My room was pretty small although tidy. In the whatever business accommodation class I got there was no minibar either. So if you'd want a soda or beer and potato chips in the room, you need to walk to R-Kioski inside the shopping center (100 m or so). My room had a view of the shopping center roof ... not nice looking at all but quiet. Checkout was quick, with check-in there was bit of a queue and it took time. Wifi connection was superb, both upload and download well in excess of 150 Mbit/s. All in all nice hotel and well equipped - there's a bit of a "hotel chain" feeling to it but not too much. With a nicer room it would be four stars and anyway ok for a business stay.

Hello, thank you for you review! Nice to hear that you enjoyed your stay with us :). We have a Mini Shop in the reception on the first floor, open 24/7. From there you can buy drinks, chips, sweets etc. Next time, you should ask for a room on the higher floors whit a view of the market square :). Have a nice summer! Kind regards, Henriette.
