We stayed at the Sokos Hotel Presidentii for one night in early June 2010. Our arrival was late (past 10pm) and the welcome we received from the front desk staff was warm and courteous. When we asked for a late checkout for the next day, they did what they could to accommodate our request. The space used to store guest...

Very good location – near shopping center, 2 minutes go from railway station, 7 minutes to Senate Square. There are comfortable big rooms, good breakfast and nice staff. Good hotel for 3-5 day staying.

This hotel is in the center of the city and easy to find, since it is very close to the Central Station (It can however get confusing, because there are six hotels of the Sokos chain in Helsinki). It is quite a big hotel with about 500 rooms, but the atmosphere is easy-going and nice. The staff is nice and...

The hotel is quite big but not impersonal. The location is perfect to explore the city and there are a couple of restaurant if the evening you are tired enough to get out. The breakfast is really fantastic: good quality and a lot of choice. Finally, the price is good if you consider the quality of the accomodation.

This hotel is typical for all Sokos hotels: rooms are big enough, very comfortable beds, good breakfast. You'll get what you expect for. I'd reccomend to take twin rooms. It seemed to me that they are bigger than double ones, and also double bed is small enough. This hotel is really close to bus station. The location is very central....

Sokos Presidentti is a good choice for those who wanna walking around Helsinki for some days, maybe weekend, and spend just a night in the hotel room. Sokos is conveniently located hotel near the city centre, train station and Kamppi metro. Rooms are boring and minimalistic, but clean. In the bathroom "Dove" products. Breakfast is good, but nothing special (omelet...

Definately a great hotel with everything under one roof, their are 4 restaurants, bar casino and a health club. The rooms are a brilliant size, clean and well equipt. The hotel is very close to city centre, no more than a 5 min walk to main high street and shops. There are also various sight seeing opportunity in the surrounding...

Nomen est omen but not in Hotel "President". This hotel is a bit dingy and looks old at least at eighth floor where I have been twice now. The location is perfect and people have told that there is a reasonable sauna at the hotel. Good for one or two night stay in Helsinki. The breakfast service is always crowded.

“Request for one near the lifts.”

  • There was a huge unsightly crack in the window frame
  • The phone had a thick layer of dust, apparently showed that it has not been cleaned in ages!
