Had everything to make our stay in beautiful Helsinki a comfortable one. Location: Check. Centrally located in City Centre and within walking distance to most attractions including the ferry terminal (15 minute walk). Rooms: Check. Spacious rooms with high ceilings and plenty of natural light. Not a big fan of open showers (drain on floor) in the bathroom but that seems the norm in Europe. Service: Check. Very helpful at the front desk with any questions or requests we had. Had to catch a taxi at 4am and they had extra sandwiches waiting for us for our trip. Breakfast: Check. Quite impressed with the breakfast bar with cold and hot options. Ate big breakfasts everything morning to save on going out to lunch.

Be sure to check out Ateljee Bar on the roof of the hotel. Excellant place to wind down the evening and watch a spectacular sunset.

Try to get a room with a scenary view over Helsinki or at least visit the Ateljee Bar to see the beautiful Helsinki on top of the roofs.

Quite superb hotel. We stayed four nights then one night on our return to Helsinki, so we got to stay in Jugendstil and Art Deco rooms. Jugendstil was more spacious, both styles are beautifully carried off. Excellent bathrooms, great breakfast (one of the best hotel buffets I've had), free wifi, really helpful staff. And not expensive - less than £80 a night. No doubt in my mind where I'd stay if I returned to Helsinki.

I was not sure whether to qualify this one as Excellent but decided against it - not because there is something I don;t like, but I simply think that excellence is extremely rare.

Torni has an atmosphere that intrigues: There is a shady KGB ghost floating around and there are bars and restaurants in various locations that make a visit very much worth your while.
The location is great for wandering around Helsinki, but I actually always just end up at the bar itself and listen to the locals make folk-music.
I don;t know when and how often this happens, but every time I was there it did...

The Rooms are all different, some have fantastic views over Helsinki, others are roomy and all are excellently made up with all the conveniences you may need.

People are helpful and the price is reasonable for what you get: a stay in a unique hotel with lots of atmosphere.

I have been wanting to stay at the Sokos Hotel Torni for ages and luckily it was worth the wait. It offers comfortable accommodation in a beautiful historic building, amazing location and very reasonable rates.

The location is fantastic, I would say probably the best in town, literally minutes away from the best shopping, restaurants and nightlife Helsinki has to offer but still in a quiet enough street to allow for a good night's sleep.
You don't even have to leave the hotel to enjoy some great nightspots, as it has a great little bar (Ateljee) on the top floor that offers great views across the city, perfect for those long summer nights, there is also an Irish pub, O'Malley's with a beer garden and live music and The American Bar for cocktails.

I arrived early and had no problems checking in straight away (always a plus).

The room (Standard Art Deco room) was quite small but I was on my own and travel light anyway so it didn't matter and everything was impeccably clean and very functional, the the bed was super comfortable.

Breakfast was good, enough choice and laid out so that it didn't get too crowded and chaotic.

I didn't have time to visit the hotel spa, so will have to check that out next time. I'll definitely be back.

If you have room high up, it's worth noting that there are two lifts, a small modern one that can get really busy so you might have a to wait awhile to fit in, but luckily the beautiful original lift was always free as I think people assume it's just for decoration.

Room Tip: Ask for a room high up for the best views
