The location is great. Breakfast normal, nothing to complain. We stayed at junior suite that we had booked with the wishes upper floor, view and bath tube. Not even one wish was carried through. Room was ok, little worn out. Instead of bath tube we had a sauna in our room, which was nice but the sauna wasn't clean enough....

Since the hotel has been booked for me by someone else, I did not know what to expect but it did not really matter because I only stayed for two nights anyways. Considering the time frame, the Original Sokos Hotel was ok. What is very good is the location because you are right in the centre. There are many shops,...

I took a three day vacation in Helsinki (room 216, Superior). The location of the hotel is perfect. Everything you want to see is near. The service was friendly and welcoming. The view was to the inner yard. Nothing to see, but it was very quiet as well. The room was very nicely cleaned, although there was still some water...
