Reviewed 29 January 2017

Hotel centrally placed and easy to find. Parking next to the hotel, but costs €12/24hrs. The rooms are small but adequate for a night or two and appear to have been recently refurbished. For sound insulation could maybe be a little better.

Dear Rolph M, Thank you for taking time to share your experience. It is nice to know that you have been satisfied with our central location by the lake near city center. I am also glad that you liked our recently refurbished rooms. We would be very happy to have you as our guest again whenever you are visiting Hämeenlinna.

The Sokos is a Sokos - typical with rather smaller but clean rooms. Parking Garage is available aus well. Restaurant For breakfast is quiet and Food is good. The City is approx tuen minutes walking distance over the river mit Restaurants and Shopping possibilities. Staff is friendly and Price is right.

This hotel is clean but totally without personality. The rooms are clean but not comfortable or particulary appealing. Not a pleace I would go for a holiday. Good for staying one night if in town for a late-night meeting or some other occasion you don't have to be in the hotel much. Breakfast is nice. Very typical Finnish buffet breakfast....

Just returned from trip to Hameenlinna for one night and stayed in this hotel. Hotel is basic Sokos chain hotel. Room was very clean and quiet. No complains.

Stayed one night while attending a meeting close by. The room was big and clean, nothing to complain about. There are some basic issues why I would not choose this hotel again: the rooms have no phones, you will have to go to the front desk if you want to ask something. No business center or a computer for guest...

Very basic hotel. Ok for one night when you stay on business, but do not expect anything more than a bed and a bathroom. The room I stayed was really basic with 2 individual beds and a shower bathroom. Service was ok and breakfast standard continental. Restaurant/disco was under renovation but it did not bother me at all. The hotel...

A rather typical Finnish middle-of-the-road hotel, does not surprise you positively but doesn’t do that negatively either. Review based on a one night stay in November (background of spending 80+ nights per year in different hotels around the globe). Location: Very close to the railway station, some distance from the city center. Apart from the station there’s nothing much of...

The hotel was very clinical. The room looked more like a cheap chain hotel rooms than comfortable hotel rooms. This Sokos hotel chain has more comfortable looking rooms, but not in Hämeenlinna. The price of the room was 100 – 130 € (depending from where you book it). The room did not have mini-bar / fridge or an electric kettle....
