I was visiting this hotel for the first time in my life. First of all, I appreciate the good service. I arrived to the hotel already at 11 am, and got a room for my self, even though the in booking is possible not until 2 pm. The room is very old fashioned, not stylish at all. But to me,...

This is the standard chain hotel you get in Finland for price of 100€ or a bit more. They live on business travelers that get the perks for spending too much of their lives in these conditions. Nothing to complain about rooms or cleanliness, except my room was a 100m walk from the elevator. Breakfast is uneventful with typical powder...

We stayed at the Vaakuna for a wedding. The hotel was very responsive via email and confirmed our reservation that I booked through Chase Sapphire Rewards. The staff was very attentive and mentioned they will have a renovation later this year. Overall, the hotel has a great potential and I'm sure after the renovations it will be a lot better....

Vaakuna is typical slightly worn out 3 star Sokos hotel in Finland. Nothing special, but clean rooms and decent service. Rooms are quiet and beds are comfy, at least to my taste. I have overnighted here several times and it is a decent hotel. Hotel restaurant food is pretty good if you don't feel exploring Seinäjoki's other restaurants.

we stayed at this hotel in a junior suite over the midsummer weekend. The hotel is located in the center of the city. Our room was tidy, with a minibar, cupsolo- coffeemaker, bubble pool, two televisions and a comfortable big bed. A very nice and cosy room, though the view wasn´t so good. In the same building there are two...

This time stayed with family. No rooms for 5 persons, but two rooms costed as much as one 5 persons room. Location couldn't be more centrum at Seinäjoki. Two restaurants at street level makes your evening easy with family if you are not ready to search other dining place in town. Recommendations for families!

When you enter the hotel, you don't get excited about it. And it goes all the way and around the hotel. Hotel is outdated and done with bad taste. Room itself was spacious and finished with a bad taste and decor. Hotel staff was below average. Sauna of the hotel was good. Breakfast was average.

A good hotel right in the center of Seinäjoki. Staff very friendly. Room clean, but however you can see that it is not a new hotel. Sauna (at least men) is brilliant. Restaurant and bar I can recomment.
