You log in to the Sokos Hotels application and the My S-Card Service using your S-My account

We are introducing S Group's new common authentication solution, the S User Account, for our digital services. The S User Account is the S Group's common login account, with which you will also be able to use other S Group online services in the future, in addition to the hotels' digital services.  

In future, your S User Account will be your user ID, and you will no longer need to remember any passwords. You can either create a separate account with your co-op member or S-Card details or add the information of your co-op and S-Card membership to the same account to get the best benefits.  

What is the S User Account?     

S User Account  is an authentication solution for the future, with which users of S Group's digital services log in to the services. The S User Account will replace the current solution based on the S-Code, used to log in to the Oma S-kanava service or S Group's online shops, for example.   

How can I create an S User Account? 

You can create an S User Account and log in with the human figure icon in the top right corner of the page. 

How can I log in to the S User Account? 

Logging in to the S User Account is easy: you only need your email address. After entering your email address to the service, you get a code by email that enables you to log in. So you can say goodbye to remembering all those passwords! 

First enter your email address and then the code you received in your email. The information requested during authentication is stored in the service.

Suites with a view and Superior rooms
Our new superior room and suites offering everyday luxury with strong colours and earthy materials are finished in September.

Bistro Heili is a relaxed meeting place
Our new Bistro Heili replacing restaurant Fransmanni offers good food with a mastery touch. The new restaurant opens in September. The new bright restaurant is a good place to enjoy a drink or dinner. The menu consists of delicious but easy bistro food with a seasonally changing menu including local flavours.

Number one event venue in Eastern Finland
There will be a total of 13 new meeting and event spaces in Kimmel. The smallest ones are sympathetic glass cubes located right next to Bistro Heili. The old suite is transformed into a more relaxed creative meeting space with a sauna.

The actual meeting wing has eight meeting spaces which can be divided into smaller spaces or into a one big space for up to 600 people. The main event and occasion space is the stylish Sirkkala hall with river views. Kimmel can fit up to a 1000 people when combining all the new spaces.

Your event can last until the early hours in our night club Las Palmas offering a relaxed atmosphere.

"New Kimmel is stunning and stylish North Karelian event house with versatile services. We warmly welcome people from Joensuu and the neighbouring areas to come and eat in our new restaurant, to have a meeting or to spend a staycation weekend", General Manager Kaija-Riitta Uusitalo recommends.

Sokos Hotels again the most responsible hotel chain in Finland


For the ninth consecutive year, the Sokos Hotels chain was named Finland's most sustainable hotel chain in the annual Sustainable Brand Index study. The study is the largest brand study in Europe, in which consumers assess the sustainability of companies in different industries. 
"We are extremely pleased with the recognition given by Finnish consumers. In these challenging times, caring for our fellow human beings and making our customers happy is increasingly important. We look forward to continuing our long-term sustainability work and measures with which we help build a Finnish society in accordance with the S Group's new mission statement – Let us together make this a better place to live in. Our willingness to do so will only increase in the coming years, as we work towards the S Group's target of carbon negativity", Harri Ojanperä, Senior vice president, SOK Travel Industry and Hospitality Chain Management, points out.
Sustainability has long been a cornerstone of the Sokos Hotels operations. All Sokos Hotels are part of the Green Key environmental programme, through which sustainable operations are systematically developed. In hotels, measures are being taken to reduce food waste and disposable plastic, focus on improving accessibility and energy efficiency aspects are taken into account in hotel upgrades. Procurement follows the S Group's common responsibility principles and policies. In addition to joint efforts, the hotels work with local partners for the mutual benefit of the area.
