        Very convience location and easy to get food. Kamppi shopping mall is just a right behind the hotel and only 1-2min walk. Downtown & Stockman shooping mall just about 5min walk. Room is a bit small especially the bath area is too narrow

        staff, standard room comfort, city location
        room tv and wifi not free.
        On the arrival the staff was very smiling and helpful, and it has been so during the whole stay. The breakfast buffet offered a large choice of european and local food. The general atmosphere gave the feeling of calm, peace and comfort. Quite few weaknesses as mentioned above, both were not really important. Certainly I will stay again at the Cosmos President when I go back to Helsinki, that city and the country are beautiful and interesting to visit, as well as the sea cruise possibilities. Unfortunately very few restaurants in the city with local food.

        Bath room was clean but old fashioned.
        Hotel was located in a good place in the center of Helsiki, near the central station and the bus stop of airpot bus, near the shopping mall and severa histrorical place where we could go around by walk. Hotel staff was freindly and well-tained. I will visit to the same hotel if I have a chance.

        Overall value for money”
        Quite near to the main station, but still it's 10 minutes away, unlike the Sokos Valuuta Hotel which is right outside the train station. Nice and professional receptionists, free sauna
        We leave early in the morning and was told there would be an early breakfast corner at the lobby starting at 5am. When we check out at 7am, the table was not laid and the receptionist reponsible for this had a very rude attitude.
        Overall a good value for money. Free sauna (open 6.30-8.30am and 6.30-8.30pm) and swimming pool. Great choice at breakfast. Clean spacious room with rocking chair. It took me sometime to find the exact location of the hotel even I had print out a google map(probably 6-7 minutes' walk from the main station).It's actually a black block of building just opposite to Kamppi shopping mall. Big supermarket in Kamppi is nearby which opens till 8pm. The only drawback was the rude attitude of the receptionist when we check-out. Other than that, everything is fine.

        Hotel Presidentti in Helsinki”
        Location, facilities, price, staff
        No important weaknesses
        I have stayed in Sokos hotels in Helsinki and other Finland locations at least 100 times over the past 22 years. Because of availability or price differences, I discovered the Presidentti about 4 years ago and I like it for its easy access to the RR station, good room layout, nice lobby, and excellent staff and breakfast. For the price, this place ranks very high for central Helsinki hotel.

        The hotel is very conveniently situated – just next to a modern and clean Kamppi Subway station and only about ten min walk to the Central Station and served by good tram service. A large modern shopping centre situated above the Kamppi Subway station provides great shopping pleasure. There is also convenient cafes just behind hotel.

        Big restaurant which serves good spread for breakfast. Well-lit corridors and lobby provide comfort with regard to safety.
        Internet service at hotel lobby was not repaired throughout our stay there.
        I do not understand the rationale behind the pricing strategy - hotel charges for a 2nd room are higher when the 2nd room (booked for 2 nights) was booked at the same time as the first room (which was booked for 1 night). I have expected the price to be more attractive when we book more rooms. Other than this, the overall rating of the hotel is excellent.

        Good centrally located hotel”
        - Very good central location - Rich varied breakfast - Clean room
        - Bath room equipment of standard double room seems to be old a little - the restaurant cuisine is rather ordinary, but expensive (about 80 euro for dinner for two) - few TV channels in English - lines during breakfast
        The hotel is very good for short stay in Helsinki. It's very centrally located (central railway station, main shopping areas are just 3-7 minutes walk). Also not far from the airport: 35 euro by taxi (for 2), trip takes about 20-25 minutes Very good breakfast (on weekends come as early as possible as there can be big lines just to get to meal tables). There is no reason to have dinner inside: many cafes in shopping centers nearby. As for a good restaurant it takes 10 minutes to walk to Esplanaden boulevard with much more interesting restaurants on it. The hotel can be booked at very good rates especially during holidays (cheaper than any other hotel nearby).

        Excellent Reception Staff , Strange cleanning staf”
        Location was excellent, only a 5 min walk from the train station, and right infront of Kampi mall which hosts excellent shops, and the top club in Helsinki. Wide selection for breakfast, which was delicious. The recption lady was extremly helpful, and pointed out excellent restaurants and tourists tips for Helsinki. They provided Dove soap and shampoo which was a surprise.
        The cleaning lady was weird. She refused to provide us with extra sewing kits and bubble bath until we showed her our loose buttons on our coat! Gets a bit noisy around the wee hours due to the large number of popular clubs beside and in front of the hotel.
        I was amazed and blown away by the Finnish hospitality. On arrival, we merely wanted to know where we cld go for dinner, however the recption lady not only told us where to have dinner, she told us which restaurants were good for which crusine, and offered to help to make reservations if we needed her too! She even spend a good portion of her time to explain to use how to travel around Helsinki, and the main tourist attractions. The hotel had a modern sleek decor which was very refreshing.

        Sokos Hotel Presidentti is a very good location hotel. It is not far from train station, near shopping center. Bus from aiport also stop here and it takes less than 10 minutes walk. The room is big and well furnished. Ice making machine is also available.There's no coffee maker in the room but can ask from coffee shop. Breakfast has a variety of choice. Everything is perfect for me. Unfortunately, I stayed only 1 night. It'll be great if I could stay longer.

        A good experience in a chained-hotel”
        I'd stayed in Soko Presidentti Helsinki hotel for 1 night, basically i like much about the location, where siutated just behind the big shopping mall Kamppi, while the well-trained & quality staff enhance our experience with the hotel, all is helpful & in good manner, and feasible to meet the needs or hotel guests, last but not least, the breakfast buffet is good.
        only one thing to point out for improvement, which , while are the facilities inside the bathroom in the room i stayed are old and somewhat dirty, and only 3 lifts provide service in each floor, which are very far away from the room# 52-68 in each floor, they are in opposite side of the lift lobby. thou they are some weaknesses, but not overall affect my positive comments to it
        My friends and i had stayed there for 1 night before return to my home country, and we surprising found the hotel is excellent in location, especially when we need to buy sth eat for friends, as there is a K-supermarket located insidet the Kamppi mall and open till 2200 even in saturday, it's very convenient for us to get back to hotel after the shopping. Besides, don't miss out the complimentary sauna & swimming pool provided along with each stay, bad that we missed this service as we had plans for sightseeing in next day morning.

        I liked this hotel during last stay there 1 year ago. I was not surprised that that the quality still good, price is still affordable. It is really useful when you travel by train (5 minutes walk from railway station) or if you plan to visit Helsinki for tourism. All big malls, places of interest are in the walking distance as well as train station, bus station and port. Staff is helpful and polite. I did not feel any discomfort there. I really like the fact that I could have free WiFi. Room equipment is "all you need" as 4-stars hotel is expected to have. Breakfast are good enough. So I would recommend this hotel for everybody who want to have good service for affordable price. Remark for Russian tourists: Russian 1st channel is translated on TV.

        a huge hotel with many many rooms (a little labyrinth). The rooms are not too small and clean. Depending on the location of the room, there might be some noise from the disco (when the windows are open). The breakfast was magnificent (if you like fish). The sauna and the pool area were ok. The temperature of the pool water was very low. Unfortunately the sauna is closed on sunday evening. The staff is very nice (we wanted to go after the Helsinki Marathon into the sauna. Normally the opening hours were passed, but we could enter and stay in the sauna as long we like).

One drawback was that the person at the reception desk when we arrived did not speak Swedish, when we checked out the desk was occupied by a Swedish-speaking person. We may choose this hotel again, if we visit Helsinki.

        I think this hotel's location is very good. About 10 min walk from railway station, near from one shopping center and some restaurants around there.
        It's a big hotel, so many tourists are staying there. We had to wait for elevator many times, Breakfast place is a large room but it was very crowded.
        We stayed here for a night. The location was good; about 10min from the railway station, also to go to the center (Stockmann department, other many shops places) about 10 min walk. Very convenient for going everywhere in Helsinki. The hotel room is also good. It isn't new hotel but cleaned well and you can enjoy taking a bubble bath. But there are so many rooms so you should be careful or you might get lost:) Breakfast is also good. Tasty and many kinds of foods. It is buffet type. Many kinds of drinks, bread, cheese, meatball, muesli, salads, deserts etc... We could really enjoy having a breakfast.

        Presidenti is a very good hotel in the center of Helsinki. The staff is very nice and helpful. But the rooms could be a little more practical with cupboard to hang you clothes in and some drawers. It wo uld also be could tobe able to order food or at least coffe on a Sunday afternoon. I can also recommend the excellent breakfast.
