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 very well located, central in Vaasa. Recommend getting room that face the town square. Room was nice and large, had messages roll in the room. Breakfast was great and Rosso restaurant was great. Sauna opens at 17;00, that was way to late for us to use.

Restaurant Central did not unfortunately meet our requirements. The food was good but service poor. The personnel forgot too many things and did not know very much of the menu. It took too long to be served.

Basic city hotel in the heart of Vaasa, short walk from train station. Checked in on Sunday evening, very quiet everywhere and the only restaurant closing at 9.30pm. Standard room itself was small, bed was too high and soft. Didn't really like the room. What i liked was the breakfast, it was a full buffet.

This hotel is located next to the marketplace in the Rewell shopping center. After staying one night in the Central Hotel, this hotel felt much more modern. We booked a Junior Suite. There are four of them with different themes: Cloud, Forest, Bridge, and Christmas. Beforehand I emailed the hotel and asked for the Forest one. The decor was very unique and you really got the forest feeling in this spacious room which was previously probably two separate rooms because there were two identical bathrooms, both with showers. Maybe there could have been done more renovation to get one bigger bathroom with both a tub and shower. Breakfast was served on the 2nd floor at Venn restaurant. It was a little bit confusing breakfast for a first-timer. The food selection was quite good and fresher than we had at Central the previous morning. There is also a Rosso restaurant next to Venn and the whole combination was quite confusing. We had dinner at Rosso and when coming from the lift you will come first at Venn and have to go through this restaurant to get to Rosso. Ilves Tampere offers the same kind of restaurant hassle which we don't like. On the 9th floor, you will find the Sky Bar with great views over Vaasa.

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.
