Rooms are very spacious and in good condition. They have everything that a basic traveller needs. Rooms are quiet enough, but you may hear voices from the corridor and neighboring rooms. Public areas are on need of refurbishment, as are some beds. Pillows can give you headache. Service is very good. For a few nights stay in Kouvola, this hotel...

There was nothing overly special about this hotel. It wasn't terrible, but it wasn't great. Front desk staff were nice. I got the bus from Helsinki to Kouvola which drops you off at the shopping mall, it's too far to walk so get a taxi. It is across from the railway station though. I went to Kouvola for a gig...

1 person room was large for one person, the bed was big and comfortable. The shower and toilet area worked well and were spacious. The actual hotel area is nice, park like area, there was no traffic noises at all.. I walked from the railway station to the hotel easily, so the location is great.

Breakfast is better than in the average Finnish hotels. They were serving some local bread and smoked ham, which were really good. Also other service in the hotel was really friendly and warm. There were also quite many families, obviously because of Tykkimäki amusement park, but the children noises were not heard in our room. So I could say that...

Across the road from the railway station in central Helsinki, the Vaakuna is central for shopping, eating and visiting the sights. Rooms with balcony are good as you can sit out and enjoy the view in the fresh air, as windows do not open. On 7th floor where I was,no balconies and rooms a little tired. Slept well in comfortable...

Service level overall (reception, restaurant) was perfect and much more than routine expressions. Rooms with extra bed ( very wide) were perfect for families. Extra plus for the Onni Squirrel happening in the morning for kids and welcoming gifts.

New furniture in the room. Friendly reception and very quiet inside. Breakfast offers really fresh food and Nespresso. They charge you for parking in the street nearby, which is not justified. Difficult to mention something special about hotel, as everything is done properly, but nothing comes with superior quality. On my opinion the hotel is charging for the room 20%...

Room has been renovated lately. Service was friendly and overall, Hotel was good compared to other Original level Sokos Hotels I have visited. Our group used sauna facilities that were not excellent but ok. Buffet lunch that was served was exceptionally good for a basic level chain Hotel.

Ok hotel for a quiet night with good bed. Clean hotel and fine breakfast buffet. Easy check-in and out. Easy and free parking just alongside the hotel (outside) Close/walking distance to city centre. Fair price/comfort ratio.

Easy to be accessed, large parking but close to the city center. The rooms are large and comfortable but the pillows and the bed are too soft. Good services, personnel is polite, all the areas are clean. Didn't taste the restaurant but the breakfast is ok and with Nespresso caffè machine!
