My husband and I stayed for three nights at Sokos Hotel Helsinki. The room was spacious and our requests were taken into account. We had wanted a room on a higher floor with a shower. The staff was friendly and the room was clean and quiet.

The room was spacious and comfortable. The breakfast room was a bit too small for all the customers at 9. Location was perfect - everything was near. Service in the hotel was really helpful and friendly.

The reception is very friendly. And this is the only good thing about this hotel. 1. No help with luggage. Poor girl from reception helped me with my bags. They even don't have trolleys. 2. Noice through the whole night from Disco nearby. We were with 3 kids. No one was able to sleep as we had vibrations in the...

Excellent location and good service. A bit difficult to reach by car and the parking is relatively expensive. Most of shops and reastaurants are in walkiing distance. Tram is also good/easy alternative for a bir longer distances.

The room was excellent and peaceful, as well the beds were comfortable as well.

But for...

The hotel is located just a few mitutes walk from helsinki main station, and also located besides the way to the helsinki dom. The hotel staffs are very kind. Indeed, I left a necktie in the room closet on my check out, they found and kept it until I revisit Helsinki several days after.
