The Sokos is a Sokos - typical with rather smaller but clean rooms. Parking Garage is available aus well. Restaurant For breakfast is quiet and Food is good. The City is approx tuen minutes walking distance over the river mit Restaurants and Shopping possibilities. Staff is friendly and Price is right.

This hotel is clean but totally without personality. The rooms are clean but not comfortable or particulary appealing. Not a pleace I would go for a holiday. Good for staying one night if in town for a late-night meeting or some other occasion you don't have to be in the hotel much. Breakfast is nice. Very typical Finnish buffet breakfast.... More

This hotel is tuned up. There has been renovation in lobby and all so in rooms. Sauna Torni has beautiful view over the lake. Rooms are modern and just renovated. Food was quite good, I had tasted breakfast, lunch and dinner, All these was quite good,

Stayed one night while attending a meeting close by. The room was big and clean, nothing to complain about. There are some basic issues why I would not choose this hotel again: the rooms have no phones, you will have to go to the front desk if you want to ask something. No business center or a computer for guest... More

Very basic hotel. Ok for one night when you stay on business, but do not expect anything more than a bed and a bathroom. The room I stayed was really basic with 2 individual beds and a shower bathroom. Service was ok and breakfast standard continental. Restaurant/disco was under renovation but it did not bother me at all. The hotel... More

A rather typical Finnish middle-of-the-road hotel, does not surprise you positively but doesn’t do that negatively either. Review based on a one night stay in November (background of spending 80+ nights per year in different hotels around the globe). Location: Very close to the railway station, some distance from the city center. Apart from the station there’s nothing much of... More

The hotel was very clinical. The room looked more like a cheap chain hotel rooms than comfortable hotel rooms. This Sokos hotel chain has more comfortable looking rooms, but not in Hämeenlinna. The price of the room was 100 – 130 € (depending from where you book it). The room did not have mini-bar / fridge or an electric kettle.... More

Nice location on the lake and the lake view from the sauna area make the difference. Convenient partially roofed parking area behind the building make access easy. Breakfast offering follows typical Finnish standard,
