    The best place to live is Sokos Hotel Vaakuna close to the railway station and big markets. The service is always excellent. The hotelroom is quiet. I only miss some silent restaurant, but not too expensive.

    Nice room and friendly staff. Breakfast was ok, too. Liked especially the very early morning coffee with rolls, before the early morning flight. Taxi, bus and railway stations are all near, which is a big plus.
