I stayed in this Sokos Hotel for two nights for a conference at a university a few blocks away. The location of the hotel was excellent both for the conference as well as hopping onto a wonderful walking/bike path (converted from rail) that went to the largest cultural venues along the harbour. My room was spotlessly clean, plenty of space,...

Spent a night in the hotel with my kids and my mom. Receptionist was really nice. Rooms are clean and nice. Bathrooms are in desperate need of renovations, but otherwise the rooms were nice. Restaurant in the hotel, Sevilla, had really good food and they had nice kids menu with some small things for kids to do while waiting the...

Great location. Facilities are generally OK. Breakfast choice is a bit limited. And breakfast hall is really too small in relation to the number of rooms. Most serious problem was ever that my toilet was not clean at arrival and I had to ask twice before it was cleaned properly.

Stayed at the hotel in July 2012 1. All my wishes when booking the hotel have been ignored. It concerns a double bed, floor, view. Request for a paid parking was left without any response, although parking at the hotel's private. 2. Check-inn for 15-20 minutes earlier was refused, even though the hotel had a lot of free rooms. 3....

Sokos Presidentii was recommended to me by a professional friend of mine for stay here. The hotel's location was very convenient. Everything we wanted: restaurants, shopping places, access to the Metro, Trams and Buses were just around corner. Even the airport bus shuttle stop is within walking distance from the hotel. This is especially helpful if you are hauling a...

I stayed 2 nights here to have some meetings with a small group of people. The conference room was well priced, staff was helpful. Rooms were a good size and well equiped. It is worth the stay if you are planning some meetings.

I stayed here for two nights and found this to be a decent, convenient hotel. The room was large and clean, the breakfast ample, and the new shopping area (with lots of shops and restaurants) is literally behind the hotel.

Don't let the corridors and ugly corridors scare you off, the rooms are allright. Breakfast is pretty good. It is more of a business hotel than a romantic getaway, so it isn't cozy at all but it is clean and well run.

This hotel is just too big. The rooms and breakfast are OK but if all guests come down to breakfast at the same time it's total chaos. It's a conference venue and what seemed like half of one conference decided to continue their discussions in the room next to ours until 1 AM! We had to call the management, and...

Presidentti, Manager at Original Sokos Hotel Presidentti, responded to this review

Thank you for visit and feedback regarding your stay at Sokos Hotel Presidentti. I regret that our location in Helsinki downtown and other hotel guests caused problems to you during the night. It is definitely our goal to make every guests stay as safe and comfortable as possible. Music that you mentioned came from the neighbouring restaurant which is not...

The grand old days of President hotel are gone. Used to be the No 1 hotel in 1980ies, nowadays rooms are refurbished, but restaurant service is not good. A pity the casino moved out. Breakfast was average and overcrowded with tourists, and the bar though comfortable had staff wearing strange underground clothes. Certainly not a hotel uniform. Receptionist are mainly...
