Excellent location in the center of Vasa. I often use use their services for meetings and have used several rooms. There are very special themerooms also, I recommend. Excellent service. Hotel is located in shopping center Rewell. Lots of good restaurants nearby and easy connctions both to train, harbour and airport.

Nice stay in city center of Vaasa. Room was quite small but the bed was big enough, queen size and comfortable. Gym is quite small but there were enough dumbbells and kettle bells for training. Of course there were running matts and spinning cycles. Sauna is quite good but no swimming pool. Lobby bar is ok, enjoyed watching ice hockey...

Fresh and clean rooms, friendly staff. The location within the shopping centre (Rewell Center) is great. I was not so pleased with the breakfast (not bad but a bit boring). Also the gym could be much more equipped.

Good location, rooms are OK and staff is very friendly. Only not so good thing is the slow guidance to tables in the restaurant. Parking facilities are good and easy to access. Price is average comapared to other hotels in Finland.

The room was very clean and functional. The bed was comfortable and good to sleep in. Gym and sauna access was available with no extra charge. The location of the hotel was in the very center of the city.

By the market square located modern hotel with nice rooms, good restaurants and friendly staff. Walking distance from the railway station. Small gym which would need some update. All in all good experience.

My third stay at Vaakuna Vaasa was even better than before. The best parts: * Extremely friendly staff throughout the hotel * Nice, renovated, rooms & excellent bed * Lovely sauna and dressing room (felt like at a summer cottage!) * Great breakfast (lovely crispy bacon!) * Excellent conference services from reservation onwards (photo from meeting room Kvarken)
