Best view with breakfast. Absolutely great terrace in the roof.The hotel has a beautiful interior and friendly service. The rooms were clean, unlike the other Sokos hotel in the opposite corner of the Kamp square.In the breakfast there was organic food also, and it was suitably varied. Good aircondition in the room.

I stayed at the hotel for one night with a friend in a standard twin room. Nice and comfortable room, nice view over Helsinki. Lacking a water boiler and things like that, which you could get for extra fee. Nothing to complain, really.

We stayed at 8th floor corner junior suite wich was actually large, size of a three-bedroom-apartement! It was an extremely pleasant surprise. Room and beds were comfortable and clean, and the view over the city was magnificent. The hotel was pretty full and in the morning,a bit overslept, we had a slight of a problem to find a vacant table...

Very good location, very good view from terrace, but too old carpets in halls and rooms (it's important for people with allergia). Breakfast is mostly in high carbs, very poor choice for people who can't eat carbs. Besides that the hotel's restaurant was closed during my staying because of Juhannus ((

We had junior suite from 9th floor. View was especially great and everything went very well with the staff. Especially when one of my mates forgot his hat in hotelroom after checkout-so friendly staff found it and returned it to its owner. I would recommend this hotel to my friends. Breakfast was ok.

Great stay in middle of Helsinki with shops and restaurangs in the building, under the building or just around the corner. Perfect for our family get away with 3 small children. The hotel is situated at the crossing of almost all means of transportation on offer in Helsinki with the main railroad station just over the road.

Hotel Vaakuna has an excellent location in the heart of Helsinki. Easy to reach by train, bus or taxi from Helsinki -Vantaa Airport. I fully recommend for one-night or more longer stay. Rooms are clean, and your wish for more quiet room is respected. The breakfast is served on top floor (the 10th) with nice view over Helsinki.
