Nice hotel in the city center. Maybe one of the best prices for the reasonably good room in such good location - near central railway station and right next to the shopping center Kamppi (with its huge supermarket, numerous cafes and restaurants, underground coach station), with good breakfast and free of charge indoor swimming pool and sauna (working hours should...

Arrived quite late and got our room fast.It was medium,nothing special,but the beds were comfortabel and what else you need to sleep one night.But I found a long black...

We stayed at the Sokos Presidentti in Helsinki for four nights in August 2011. The hotel has several hundred rooms and caters mainly to tourist groups. The location is very central. The hotel seems to deal well with the apparently rapid turn-round, although check-in queues were long and slow, with rooms not available for many guests even after the earliest...

We checked into this hotel several times over a 3-week period as a home base for our European vacation. Haven't stayed in any other hotels in Scandanavia, so I can only compare to other European and North American hotels. We found the hotel to be in decent shape but showing it's age - the bathrooms were clean but older, and...

This hotel is located within walking distance (which, in Finland, can be a mile or two) from the rail station and other means of public transportation. The lobby is nice, but the staff was not sufficient to accomodate everybody in early evening, and the lines to check in were kind of long. The staff was very nice and helpful. The...

The hotel is great worth for money. It is ideally located in the very heart of Helsinki close to just about everything. The rooms might not be huge, but they are certainly not small, and are very comfortable. These include a TV set (with stations in Finnish, Swedish, Russian, English and Japanese), a bathtub or shower, a gair dryer, an...

I just got back after 3 nights at Sokos Predientti Hotel. I must say that this is one of my favourite hotels in Helsink (I have lived there for 9 years). It's close to all the public transportantions and really close to both sights and the city center. Good things about the hotel: Great Value (we have always got a...

We stayed for just one night--my wife and myself. On the last leg of our Scandinavian holiday. Superb location---close to almost everything ! Central Station, Bus service to airport, even the City Hall, the Train Terminals---everything is just a few minutes' walk away ! Sokos is the dominant hotel chain in Helsinki---they have at least three properties within a 2...

huge hotel and a little unpersonal. Breakfast with a good choice, but far too many guests for our taste. The room had what was expected. The internet PC:s in the lobby were occupied all the time.
