Location and transportation
It is rare to come to a hotel where I really like every little design feature. Door knobs, chairs, lamps, all perfect in one retro 50s/60s design line. The bed was fine, breakfast was great, and the separate rooms of the restaurants on the 10th floor are worth the visit alone. Perfect location on top of it – Scandinavia at its best!
We were taken care of absolutely fantastically. Nothing negative to say. The staff were friendly and took so nicely in consideration my 2-year old grandchild. Breakfast was plentiful, healthy and delicious.
It wasn´t our first visit in Vaakuna. We especially admire the old finnish design and furnishing. And the city view from the windows. The photo exhibition about the history of the house at the 10th floor was very interresting.
We had a great stay at Vaakuna, the room was spacious, bed super comfortable and you can't beat the location. The staff was very friendly. Breakfast was also good, and there was an interesting photo exhibition of the hotel's history near the breakfast room.
I enjoyed my stay at Helsinki Vaakuna hotel. Especially good was the positive attitude and polite behavior of the people working at the reception. Breakfast was also really good compared to many other hotels i have stayed in Helsinki. Definitely will be back to stay with you. Thanks very much. Hope to be back soon.
Always enjoy staying at Original Sokos Hotel Vaakuna. The location is excellent could not ask for a better place. Good breakfast, nice clean rooms and so on can't find anything to complain about really. My default choice when visiting Helsinki.
Stayed here two nights with my daughter and we had an amazing good service. Hotel is very good value for the money. The location is excellent near the railway station and main buss station. Hotel reception were always all friendly smile and ready to serve with delightful attitude. Breakfast was really great and tables were clean. I will indeed go there again when I travel to Helsinki again to spent few days there.
The best hotel in Helsinki. Location is naturally important but the major factor is friendly and skilled staff in the reception. I also like hotel`s atmosphere. And you can sleep well and eat your breakfast looking over Helsinki.
