The location is the best thing about this hotel because it's right in the city centre. All in all it's a very basic Sokos chain's hotel - nothing to be impressed about or nothing to complain about either. The rooms are tidy but I wouldn't descibe them as comfortable or cozy, just very basic. The breakfast could clearly have a... More

As stated the hotel is located in the heart of the city. It has the standard that you would assume for a Sokos-chain hotel. Good on all levels, but not luxury. The room we had was quite and spacious.

We liked the Original Sokos Hotel. It is conveniently located and quiet, with helpful staff. Our room was very adequate, with most amenities, including a safe. Unfortunately there were no coffee-making facilities in the room, although good coffee was available in the adjoining Frans & Amelie, where breakfast was included in the cost. The hotel also has a sauna, as... More

Still we had to mail in our confirmation to the reception and the otherwise smooth check-in took about 15 min.
