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.
Learn more about our review moderation.

This was our third stay at this hotel. Decision to choose this hotel was easy and based on our previous positive experiences. During this stay we were travelling with an infant and requested a room with a crib. We were not just given a room with a crib but it was also a room with a great view of the lake Vanajavesi. Our room was clean with all the usual amenities (locker, tea/coffee maker, small fridge etc.). The bed was very comfortable, bathroom was clean and shower was tidy. Our daughter also slept well in the crib provided by the hotel. The breakfast was usual Sokos breakfast with continental and finnish options. It was good spread with lots to choose from. The hotel is within short walking distance from the railway station and within walking distance from the city center. The Häme castle and other tourist attractions are within short walk from the hotel. Parking fees at hotel were reasonable at 14 EUR/day. We had a peaceful and comfortable stay at this hotel. We will certainly consider staying here again.

The situation was just great ashore by the Vanajavesi. Room was good to spend two nights. Bathroom was also good in size. We took our own helmets cause knew that from the hotel you can loan bicycles. Weather was warm, good bicycle roads and the city and the surrounding areas were very clean.

This was our second time in Suite #517 by Interior designer Teuvo Loman. There are two suites at this hotel. They are sold at the same price. The sale price was 136 euros. Suite #517 is more spacious. The living room is bigger because the balcony doesn't extend over it like in Suite #519. However, the balconies in both suites are the same size. The sauna is quite small. The maximum capacity is for two people. The best part in the bathroom was a new mist shower head. It was extremely comfortable. Only at Scandic Oulu City, we have found a similar shower head. The hotel restaurant had got a facelift after our last visit. It still had a little nightclub feeling, although the dance floor had been covered with tables. The breakfast was one of the best we have had at any Sokos Hotels. It was pleasantly calm and the food selection was excellent.

We stayed at this hotel during our road trip to Helsinki, Raseborg and Hämeenlinna. The hotel is right next to the railway station and within walking distance from the city center. The Häme castle is also about 20 minutes walk from the hotel. Parking fees at hotel were reasonable at 10 EUR/day. The hotel is in quite part of the town, so in general it was very peaceful. The hotel is right next to the lake and there is a park next to the hotel. We took a stroll in the park next to the lake and it was a good experience. There was also a patio where we sat for a while looking at the lake. The room felt like it was recently renovated. The room, bed and shower were tidy. The beds were very comfortable. Being a basic room there were not many amenities included. The breakfast was usual Sokos breakfast with continental and finnish options. It was good spread with lots to choose from. We had a peaceful and comfortable stay at this hotel. We will certainly consider staying here again.

Clean and nice hotel nearby city center. Old Hameenlinna castle is about opposite the river. Rooms are just fine, not too small for a pleasant trip. And well insulated from neighbour. Tasty food at restaurant, not too crowded. Hotel lacks gym, only outdoor exercise available. *** And bunch of Stoats wandering around.

Really nice hotel by the lake Vanaja. The whole hotel has just been renovated and the rooms, sauna, restaurant, meeting rooms and the lobby are really nice and cozy. The service is really good in the reception and in the restaurant. Food in the restaurant Le Blasson is really good and in the restaurant is really special homely atmosphere. The location of this hotel is really good. The hotel is located next to railway station and Lake Vanaja. Some of the rooms have lake view. The Hämeenlinna city and attractions are close by, only about 10 minutes walk.

The hotel is centrally located and near to the railway station. Staff was friendly and the food in the resaurant was tasty. The room was clean and tidy and had all the necessary things available. I liked the peace and quietness best and also the emergency exits were very well marked. There could be more food in the restaurant for special diets and vegetarians.

Beautiful location in Hameenlinna, good food and service. The landscape is nice, with the lake you can see from the restaurant and from some rooms. The rooms are comfortable, quite and hot enough. Satisfied.

Well, what can I say. When you would like to close the door of your bathroom, you have to open the main door 😂 There is no locker, no minibar, no air condition, no heating, no coffee machine etc. The hotel restaurant closes at 11 p.m. No hotel bar, so its more like a pension than a hotel

The Vaakuna is home away from home! The rooms are neat and clean. The staff is always friendly and do not hesitate to go out of their way to ensure that the guests' stay is as they expected. Being from overseas, they always offered help and advice where required. We even made a few friends (and we have always been told that it is uncommon for Finns)! The breakfasts just got better over the years. The renovation of the lounge area made a big change to the character of the hotel. I personally loved the previous "homey, down to earth" feeling, but I guess that the "new look" is far more trendy and in step with the modern times...
