Normal work trip to Vaasa and staying as normal in Vaakuna Vaasa. Good place as always in Sokos hotel group. Nice looking rooms and to me all needed services - where a good night skeep is the most valuable. Several nice restaurants in hotel building.
I have stayed here on several times. The location is great as it is in the centre of Vaasa, and since Vaasa is a small town you can walk almost everywhere. The breakfast is usually good and the hotel has a small gym that you can use. I have always stayed here on a business trip so these things are important to me. The price is a bit on the high side, and it the value for the money is so so. But since my employer has payed the bill it hasn't bothered me that much.
Everything you want to reach in the city is basically all a short walk from here, literally. The hotel is extremely convenient and recently upgraded with that new breakfast and dining option it just makes it a lot more trendy. Friendly staff, with the added bonus of the connecting parking from the shopping lot it just makes it a: no brainer to choose when in town. the bonus window view from the room into the central square is just an added bonus. quite tasty dinners, and a nice bar to hang and enjoy a very stocked selection. overall a very pleasant and relaxed stay. only one comment against this: the single lift is a little "stretched" for the whole building.
Stayed 2 nights and liked hotel because of: 1) cozy and just renovated breakfast area where there is enough space and in same time feels like home. My absolute favourite was 5 flakes porridge with a bit of butter - somehow in cold climate this is what you need to start morning. Also enjoyed fresh fruit sticks with watermelon, melon and pumpkin. Should definitely mention croissants - freshly baked, perfectly crunchy and just melting in the mouth. And cucumber slices were fresh cut (not kept in fridge under film over night) - this is small thing, but at least for me very important. 2) great location - everything is near, most of the great restaurants, shops, train station 3) small sauna, but there is all what you need just to relax 4) eco friendly - not only in words, but also in…
Refurbished Sokos Hotel Vaasa really has nice atmosphere. It is fresh! Heikki in reseption did really make sure that I felt that I am coming home :) Superior service! Room was nice and clean. Comfy beds and pillows. Breakfast was tasty.
