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??
