The facilities at the hotel are ok. The location of the hotel is good and a lady at the reception was friendly and helpful. Breakfast was exactly the same than in all Sokos Hotels. Overall experience was great.

It was a great hotel with friendly staff. Everything was fine except the pillows. They were not good at all to sleep, so lumpsy and my neck hurt after waking up. We got back to hotel sleeping around 3 am, too tired to go and ask for another pillow.

Junior Suite located 7th floor where you have a privacy location. There was a nice view straight to Helsinki Cathedral which are only 100 metres from Sokos Hotel Helsinki. Suite had a sauna also, large enough for two people.

I was staying at the hotel with my mom. Excellent location for shopping and nightlife. Parking is right opposite the hotel. Rooms are little old fashioned and corridors not so clean. Our room was on the 2nd floor but not to the street so it was quiet. Pillows were great.
