What guests are saying:
big hotel but very comfortable, hot sauna and very good breakfast.
Sergey from Russia

Overall, it's a nice hotel in the center part of Helsinki, near the railway and bus station, so you'll stay here it's very comfortable to use the airport shuttle bus. Another plus is an excellent view from the restaurant located on the 10th floor.

Perfect location for everything in Helsinki. Good value, large rooms. Hotel staff was helpful, they let us keep our bikes in an area next to the lobby.

Location, interior, services were excellent. I will use this hotel again, but I would give up my private balcony to avoide noise from the restaurant.

      Good”
      Only thing going for this hotel is the location (just a short walk from the main train station). As others have pointed out, amenities are sorely lacking. No gym. A kettle has to be rented for 12 euros. Stayed at other hotels in this price range or cheaper in Helsinki and they had better facilities. My first and last time.

      Location is just 80 meter walk from where the Finnair Bus drop you off! Breakfast was good but too crowded, better go early to beat the crowd or skip it entirely.

      Right opposite to the train station. Walking distance to key bus station and most of the key interest. But it is charged for getting a kettle in the room. Extra feetsheet will be charged as well.

      Excellent location”
      Location of this hotel is excellent for tourists. It is next to the train station. Tram stops, shopping malls and restaurants are around the hotel. Easy and convenience to go everywhere. Buffet breakfast is good. Try to find a window side table in the restaurant so that you can have a city view of Helsinki. Room size is fine for us but may be a bit small for western people. If the cool atttitude of the front desk staff can be improved, it will be much better.

      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.

      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.

      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.

      when making a booking it goes without saying ,you get what you pay for.I noticed a remark when I booked that the rooms were small.so I booked a larger room at a small additional price. Plenty of eating places and grocery shops nearby. Airport bus across the street, also train station. I would stay here if I were to visit this city again.

      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
