Lovely hotel

Proximity to transport, close to shopping, ood facilities
We had a lovely stay. It was easy to walk everywhere. Trams outside and central station over the road. Couldn.t ask for better hotel for convenience.

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..

Great Location, Rooms clean and comfortable.

Location, Comfortable, Friendly staff
Enjoyed our stay at Sokos Vaakuna Hotel. Excellent location right on railway/bus square. Excellent for catching bus to and from airport. Restaurant very nice and breakfast great. Staff very friendly and helpful. Close to good shopping. Easy walk to harbour. Would recommend highly to anyone going to Helsinki.
Restaurant Tip: Excellent breakfast and very nice dinner in the restaurant at night.

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.
Sightseeing/Attractions Tip: Chocolate is nice. Things sold in flea market a bit expensive.

Great location!

Location, friendly staff
The location of the hotel is very great, everything is very close: the bus station, railway station, shops, metro etc.! The staff was very friendly. The room was rather big and spatious with 3 big windows with the great view! We can see time and temperature on the street through the window on the building below! ))) But it was cold in the room, and room is a little obsolete.

Nice hotel, great location, excellent service

Central location, excellent service from hotel staff, clean and comfortable room
My wife is Finnish, but not from Helsinki; we have stayed in Helsinki on other previous occasions in other Sokos hotels; the Sokos Vaakuna is considerably bigger than the others we had stayed in (Sokos Albert and Aleksanteri); Sokos Vaakuna is in a very central location (next to bus and train station) within short walking distance from many attractions; but it's not in a quiet and peaceful location; the Sokos Albert and Aleksanteri hotels are in more quiet locations; our only complaint was that the breakfast buffet was far too crowded for the small Sokos staff to handle; the breakfast buffet at the smaller Sokos hotels is lovely and provides a peaceful environment for a meal; on the plus side, we were traveling with a small baby, and the Sokos Vaakuna staff provided cheerful and excellent assistance
