I chose this hotel because of the central location and it was worth it. My wishes regarding the room (presented in online reservation system) were fulfilled and my room was nice, small single room with balcony. The breakfast was tasty and the staff was friendly. I recommend this hotel with pleasure for other business travellers!
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.
Thank you for a nice stay at your hotel as we were having a girls night out in Helsinki. Looking forward to stay there again. Superb location and a peaceful night for sleeping. Will recommend for friends.
I recently stayed at this hotel for a weekend. The staff were friendly, helpful and knowledgeable. The room was comfortable with a nice spacious bathroom and had everything I needed. Breakfast buffet had good variety and was nicely done. Location could not be more central in Helsinki and right next to the main railway station and by the airport bus stop. In the same building is a large department store and a large 24hr supermarket! I will visit again next year.
The room was big enough with a great view to the city center. The breakfast on the 10th floor was very good. Location of the hotel is outstanding. We appreciate that the the hotel respects and will save the beautiful interiors, design furnitures and the lamps by Paavo Tynell.
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.
