Reviewed 1 June 2017

Although situated in a relatively quiet backstreet, the Torni is very central being just 10 minutes on foot from the main railway station and five minutes from the tram stops on busy Mannerheimintie street. The Forum shopping mall, containing every kind of store imaginable, including grocery shops, bars and fast food outlets, is less than a minute from the main door. Attractions such as the Kiasma Museum of Contemporary Art and the harbourside Market Square are within a 15-minute walking radius.

Reception and other staff are unfailingly polite and helpful. Local advice, maps and information are distributed readily.

Rooms in the tower section cheerfully decorated in bright, light tones and offer some great city views. Memory foam mattresses and a selection of pillows in all rooms ensure a good sleep. Minibars, coffeemakers and kettles are in every room. Some guests might not like the glass walls of some bathrooms.

The Torni's three bars are some of the best-known in Helsinki.

I visited shortly, stayed one night in this hotel.
I like the atmosphere of this hotel. It is old building in nice area of Helsinki, in the centre.
I had the smallest room on 7th floor. Two windows made the room feel bigger and airier, so no problem.
The breakfast was good, the bed was comfy, and everything went smoothly when checking in and out. This area is in a quiet area, so I did sleep well.

We stayed here for two nights. The location was great. Near shopping areas and places to eat. The only down side with this hotel was the elevator. Only one and it was always busy because they had bar at the top level. Otherwise everything was great. The breakfast was good, rooms clean, beds were comfy. We had the couples room because there was a glass wall bathroom in the middle of the room. So unless you are comfortable to take a bath and even take the number 2 in front of your friends or other relatives you should pick this room exclusive with your better half.

Stayed here for 5 nights. Big room with a seating area- which is very nice. Bed comfortable and cleaned to a high standard. Staff very friendly- all spoke excellent English and very knowledgeable. Breakfast was ok - it isn't worth the €17.50 so try to get it included. Nice touch to have free elements of the mini bar. Location is excellent- close to shopping and the main train station plus loads of bars and restaurants. Our room had a balcony which I suspect in nice weather would be fantastic. The rooftop bar's view is impressive but it is very expensive.

We have booked a suit for celebrating my birthday. The rrom was spacious, light and soundproof. Very cute 1930-elevator. Nice views from the terrace at the top. Friendly staff during the breakfast.
With champagn to the room we have ordered Sweet Torni for 2 - could be better (grapes are not fresh enough and in general quite small for 2 people).
The only disappointment was that at the reception when we checked in, the person said that 2 drinks from mini bar included into the price. However, in the morning it turned out that only alcohol-free drinks are included. We did not read the booking conditions carefully and felt very embarrased in the morning while checking out.

Dear guest,

Thank you for staying with us and giving as such a nice review!

We are very glad that you enjoyed your stay here in Solo Sokos Hotel Torni. Hopefully your birthday was a succes too!

We are very sorry about this inconvenience with the minibar. Mostly we want to apologize that we made you feel embarassed about this, this is not what we meant at all. The reception should have been more careful about this topic during the check in. I truly hope that you got to talk this through in the morning.

Kind regards,

Hotel Torni has a rich even dramatic history as it hosted Russian military mission after the WWII. The hotel has a lot of character in comparison to the recently built hotels. Rooms in different floors have thematic decorations and the tower of the hotel provides magnificient view over Helsinki. Breakfast and services work as well as in any modern hotel.

Room Tip: Ask for higher level room for better view.

Overall, a nice hotel in the city center, shopping center and bus station in walking distance. Good space in the hotel lobby and a very nice breakfast. The room was modern and I liked particulary the facilities in the shower.
