The hotel is great worth for money. It is ideally located in the very heart of Helsinki close to just about everything. The rooms might not be huge, but they are certainly not small, and are very comfortable. These include a TV set (with stations in Finnish, Swedish, Russian, English and Japanese), a bathtub or shower, a gair dryer, an...

I just got back after 3 nights at Sokos Predientti Hotel. I must say that this is one of my favourite hotels in Helsink (I have lived there for 9 years). It's close to all the public transportantions and really close to both sights and the city center. Good things about the hotel: Great Value (we have always got a...

We stayed for just one night--my wife and myself. On the last leg of our Scandinavian holiday. Superb location---close to almost everything ! Central Station, Bus service to airport, even the City Hall, the Train Terminals---everything is just a few minutes' walk away ! Sokos is the dominant hotel chain in Helsinki---they have at least three properties within a 2...

huge hotel and a little unpersonal. Breakfast with a good choice, but far too many guests for our taste. The room had what was expected. The internet PC:s in the lobby were occupied all the time.

I was on a three-week business trip in June and decided to stay at three different hotels. The Presidentti is close to the train station. But the Scandic Marski, similarly priced at around 150 Euros per night, is a much better choice because the room is much more comfortable and is more centrally located. Breakfast at the Presidentti was delicious...

I stayed at this hotel for two nights as part of a group of MBA students as we toured various parts of Scandinavia. The hotel is located within walking distance of the market and Promenade. The room was small but satisfactory. It’s not luxurious at all, but I’m not certain there are any nicer hotels in Helsinki. The staff were...

Stayed in the hotel for business for three nights, only because of its location. It couldn't be much more central in Helsinki, just a very short walk to shops, offices, tram/bus stops, pretty much everywhere! The views are not that breathtaking from any of the rooms (from what I've experienced & heard), so if you'd like to see at least...

The hotel is located in the city centre and it is walking distance from many tourists attractions. The room are nice and clean, despite being quite old fashioned. Good breakfast buffet.
