We live only 15 kilometers from Helsinki, so this was just for fun. I booked this hotel, because the deal was so good and I did not have very high expectations, but was positively surprised. Room was quite nice looking, the bed was confortable and the view was kind of nice, even it was just the opposite house. But the...

You really can't beat a great hotel breakfast - and the Albert offers one of the best hotel breakfasts I have experienced. Perhaps it's a little unusual to start a hotel review with comments about the breakfast, but this is one of the Albert's real selling points. The restaurant (well used by the public during the day), is not large...

This hotel has very friendly service in Finnish standards. It's located few mins off the centre and has lots of restaurants nearby. When selecting a room, you might want to ask it from inner yard instead of street side because of noise from the traffic though it wasn't not that bad. Hotel has its own parking hall, driving to it...

The service was friendly. Room decoration really lovely and the room comfortable and clean. Breakfast is good, the breakfast area is just a bit smallish so there can hard to find a seat on busy hour. The hotel is located some 15-20 minute walk from the centre, but the route is easy. There are many restaurants and bars close by,...

The Original Sokos Hotel Albert is very central and in walking distance of most attractions. I stayed there twice this year and both times was struck by the friendliness of the staff. Apart from that the hotel is average in everything, average room size, average breakfast, good to average food in the restaurant. The lifts are very small and a...

This hotel was okay. It looks very new, but if you look closely you see it is not properly renewed. They spend a minimum of money to make it look okay in pictures. I was not very convinced of this hotel. Although we had a fine sleep and could rent a parking spot for 21 euro per night in the...

Good hotel with the breakfast and dining provision. Walkable distance to the city center where there are good shopping options. Cab service is 2 minutes away from the phone call. Koiski, street across is convenient to buy some quick snacks or utilities. Overall good place to stay for business/holiday.

I want to especially thank the young lady at reception who was so helpful and efficient. After a plane trip from Australia, lasting over 20 hours, we very much appreciated her thoughtfulness. All we wanted was a comfortable bed, and we were very happy with the accommodation.
