Great Hotel for the money!

Very central to the city, staff are very helpful and friendly, newly renovated dinning area. My choice in Helsinki
I like this hotel,better than the others I have stayed in during my 6 business trips to Helsinki. The rooms are basic but very comfortable,clean. The staff are very helpful, speak English quite well, helped with many questions about where to go and do in the city. They just renovated and expanded the dining area. Complementary breakfast is good. Lots of shops within a few minutes walk in any direction.
Nightlife Tip: Leave the hotel and turn right, walk straight across the park and on your right side find a bar called Kaarle. Thursdays are absolutely packed. Great venue, great people!

Worth your money

The hotel is situated perfectly in the city center. You are reasonably near for example railway, metro and bus stations. The room was quite nice - all the rooms are Non Smoking rooms. The bed was totally OK and the personnel also very friendly and helpful. The breakfast room is cosy and the breakfast itself - 10 points. There are 3 elevators in the lobby so you never have to wait very long. And you can see the Cathedral from the corridor window of upper floors.

Sokos Hotel Helsinki

The location is excellent
Upon arrival, the checking-in procedure was swift. The hotel had noticed that I had requested a quiet room and asked whether a top floor room facing the backyard was OK. Of course this was perfect!The room and breakfast was quite nice, not on top of the range but nice. I can definetely consider staying here again if I need to do business in the city center of Helsinki!
Travel tip: There are 2 bars in the hotel. However, within a 500 meter radius from the hotel there are numerous other options available!

Buen servicio en el centro de Helsinki

El hotel está muy bien situado, cerca de la estación de tren. El personal es competente y amable. Las habitaciones están decoradas al estilo nórdico, sencillo y muy funcional. Tiene wifi incluido en el precio.
Mi estancia en el hotel Sokos comenzó como el año pasado. Había ido a hacer un trabajo a la U. de Helsinki, y esperaba pasar dos noches. La primera noche llegué muy tarde (00:30), puesto que cogí el último avión que llegaba a Helsinki desde Madrid. Y tanto que el último... la nube de polvo volcánico nos atrapó y desde el jueves los aeropuertos estuvieron cerrados. El jueves por la noche ya teníamos claro que al menos tendríamos que pasar una noche más en el hotel. Así lo hicimos saber al personal, que rápidamente solucionó el problema. Nos trasladaron de habitacion, y la gestión de las maletas entre el check-out y el check-in la llevaron ellos, sin más distracción. La nueva habitación era "Supreme", un poquito más cara, pero aún más confortable, con todas las comodidades, e incluso una tetera para hacer café y té, que me vino de vicio, teniendo en cuenta la aventura que me esperaba para volver a España desde Helsinki por mar y tierra.
Shopping Tip: Cerca del hotel hay una galería de las más selectas de Helsinki, y, en general, todo el centro comercial con muchas tiendas. Especialmente interesantes son las tiendas "Moomin", de unos personajes creados por una autora finlandesa, que al menos no están tan globalizados como Hello Kitty, y permiten volver a casa con algo más auténtico.
