Reviewed 1 week ago

Spacious and clean rooms, good breakfast, comfortable beds, central location, many museums and shopping centers are at a walking distance, popular amongst far eastern tourists apparently, sometimes may be rather crowded.

The location is extremely good, the hotel is located near the main railway station and Kamppi shopping center (where the bus station is). The main attractions are in a walking distance.

Sokos Hotel Presidentti is going through a major facelift. Currently some rooms are updated and some are old and worn out. I stayed in one of the old rooms and major issue was quality of the room air. Windows were locked and there was no fresh air flowing through ventilation. Wifi is easy to login and speed is decent.
