Stayed for 5 nights in March. Basic four-star hotel with pros and cons it used to have. Personnel was helpful and polite. Good location - eight minutes’ walk to centre of Helsinki. The two things that bothered slightly - no kettle/teapot in the room and breakfast that was the same for all five mornings (although it was good I was... More

Dear Guest, Thank You for Your feedback. It is possible to rent a kettle to the room for 5 €, and it is possible to order it to the room already in advance.

Had an ok visit in this quite small hotel. Location is good and the size of the place makes it a bit more special compared to the rest of the Sokos "Original" -hotels, in good and bad. Staff seemed to be running on thin resources causing queues in reception, bar and breakfast.

Original Sokos Hotel Albert is a ordinary hotel in the centre of Helsinki. Easily reached by tram and situated in a calm area of the city. Near the venue Nosturi, where rock conserts are held several nights every week. The breakfast was boring, though. Everything was ordinary, not even the special coffees had any taste.

Staff is very attentive and professional, hotel itself is a bit dated (but .. that's with many places in Finland). Quiet, clean and good night rest. Fantastic hamburger in the restaurant downstairs and quiet, nice area.

Staying as a couple Albert provided everything that was expected for a weekend stay. Reception was friendly. We managed to get our car parked in carage. Closest tram/bus stops are just around the corner. Tram will take you to the railway station in 6 minutes. Breakfast is ok, no special rush even during weekend and close to the last hour.

The rooms are clean and large in Finnish terms. It is also very quiet in the hotel: no noises from the corridors or from the street can be heard to the room. If you want to have a good night sleep and don't want to pay extra on high end decor and can accept slightly longer walk (1 km) to... More

Hotel Albert is nicely located close to downtown at same time being in a quiet area. Arriving to the hotel is like coming back home, friendly personnel giving you warm welcome. Rooms just a bit small, but roomy enough for a few days business trip. Definately coming back to Albert.

The location was good and the price okay considering the generally high prices of hotels in Finland. Breakfast was okay and gluten-free food was also available. We spent two nights in this hotel, and the air conditioning was not working in the first room we got, so the temperature was way too high. First we thought we just didn't understood... More

I stayed in this hotel for the first time and was satisfied I chose it. The staff is very helpful. The location of the hotel is good, with a tram stop very near but the city centre in a walking distance as well. The room was comfortable and peaceful. The shower wasn't very spacious nor functional.
