Great central location

location, location, location
Sokos is a large Hotel chain and the Vaakuna Hotel was their first, it dates from the 1960's. So a bit dated. However its in a great location right at the main railways station and 100 mtrs from the airport bus. Public transport is at the door and it is built on top of a department store, surrounded by shopping centres and resturants . Staff were attentive and friendly , late checkout was not an issue.

Everything great

Wonderful stay
The hotel is very convenient because it is right where the train station and the bus terminals are. That was important because I was traveling to Finland in the middle of winter, with sub-zero temperatures every day. The staff was very helpful, and generously gave me a wonderful room overlooking the city center. Every little thing was neat and tidy. I am completely satisfied.

Great location, big rooms, nice breakfast

The location is the best thing... 2 min from the train station
I took this hotel since I had to take the train at 7:00 am, it was -14 degrees and the walking was very easy and short, the hotel rooms are nice and big, I got in late and checked out very early so I didi not have much time to enjoy..

Convenient shopping mall hotel

Near to airport bus and train terminal
very convenient, 5 minutes walk from the airport bus station. the hotel is located inside the shopping mall. i can see the shopping mall from the room window; which also means the shopper can see inside my room so need to keep window and curtain closed all the time. generally, room is clean and well maintained. can assess internet in the room with password or there are 3 to 4 computers with printer in the lobby centre. breakfast was nice.
