Traditional hotel centrally located in Helsinki; 'everything' is within walking distance. The regular single room was comfortable and clean, breakfast very good and the restaurant being on the upper floor gives a good view of the city. Staff were polite, friendly and helpful. I reco0mmend this hotel to other travelers and will be back soon.

Near to the railway station and places where I could buy small things. Vaakuna also has a very good breakfast with the view over Helsinki. Not so good light in the room when I had to do much paperwork.

Never spent a night in a suite before, but definitely going to many more times! The amazing fourteen(?) windows and the view over the Helsinki city centre worked for me better than a weekend trip to Paris. I hate flying, so this was a great way to give my husband an unforgettable birthday surprise!

Hotel is located in a very central place, it was quiet and quite good. The staff were very welcoming. I am normally quite conscious on how clean the bathrooms and beddings are in hotel rooms, this was not disappointing!
